In early 2006, after having spent 30 years working desk jobs, Roxanne realized she felt unfulfilled with any profession that kept her there.  She had always been one to want to help people, but couldn't seem to find the right niche.  Over the course of several years, it had been suggested that she look into a career as a massage therapist.  But due to many life circumstances, didn't give it much thought.  Until that one day it all seemed to be as clear as any idea could possibly be.  There were no more questions, no more doubts as to which direction to go.  So, beyond middle age, Roxanne quit her most current desk job and found herself enrolled, full-time, in massage school.  There was so much more to learn than what she originally thought, bit it still made sense.

 

When Roxanne completed the 650 hour massage program and began her new career, the modality practiced was Swedish massage, which is what was taught at the school she attended.  Unfortunately, prior to massage school, and throughout, she had incurred many physical issues of her own, and was in constant pain; adhesive capsulitis ("frozen shoulder") being one.  As many of us do, Roxanne felt it was just part of growing older.  Then, a few years after beginning her massage practice, she encountered a continuing education class that introduced the principles of the John F. Barnes Approach to Myofascial Release; a manual therapy that used the principles of myofascial stretching techniques.  After the amazing sensations felt under her hands, Roxanne decided to pursue more teachings of this visionary physical therapist.  This was the turning point in her health and career parth.  She knew that if the teachings of this remarkable technique were pursued, there would be a tremendous opportunity to assist others afflicted with limited mobility, chronic pain, and so many other ailments.  With the techniques learned at the various John F. Barnes seminars, Roxanne began to recover from her own issues, both physical and emotional.  To date, she continues to attend training in John F. Barnes' hands-on workshops throughout the country.

 

Roxanne is a Licensed Massage Practitioner in the State of Washington since 2007.  She has acquired more than 800 hours of training in the healing arts, with her focus being the John F. Barnes method.  She is an expert practitioner in the "John F. Barnes Approach to Myofascial Release," which is considered to be the ultimate therapy that is safe, gentle and consistently effective in producing results that last.  Also, a student of indigenous peoples in the use of healing energy, Roxanne incorporates the teachings that came from her Native American heritage.  Both techniques work together to facilitate healing of the whole person.  She has also been an ordained minister in the Universal Life Church since 2009.

Robert Lester, II has been an important part of Roxanne's spiritual journey and connecting with her Native American roots.  His guidance and teachings have taught her the importance of walking through life with respect for all around us.  www.onepeoplefound.org

Roxanne has also brought Therapeutic Touch into her practice to compliment the other modalities used.  Therapeutic Touch involves conscious intent on the part of the practitioner to help promote balance, rhythm and energy.  Assessment of the energies allows practitioners to more effectively individualize the treatment.  It is believed that a person's own healing potential may be enhanced by this elegant and graceful process. The most commonly reported effects are relaxation and a profound sense of well-being.

My approach is one of individual consideration for each client, because each person has different issues.  I focus on the whole person, not just the symptoms.  I have had the opportunity to learn from a variety of teachers; leaders in education, spiritual leaders, and my own personal experience.  The various teachings have lead me to understand the importance of love, respect, courage, honesty, wisdom, humility and truth, toward all living creatures.

 

In 2009, my professional focus began to shift from traditional massage toward a specific therapy known as the "John F. Barnes, Approach to Myofascial Release" (MFR).  MFR is a gentle form of stretching and balancing that has a deep and profound effect on the body’s fascial and muscular tissues.  A mind-body approach is used to reduce pain, restore posture and movement, and improve function.  MFR can address problems that have not responded to surgeries, therapies, and medications, bringing about positive and lasting changes.

Please feel free to call or e-mail for an appointment or for additional information.
