“I was quite skeptical when I started getting Myofascial Release treatments and I told Clare so. 

However, as she kept quietly working with me that first session, I soon realized how great it works. 

I have more energy and my pain is less.  I’m a believer!”        - Ray N.

Years ago, when a family member became injured and received physical therapy to feel better, I became intrigued and fascinated about the process. Shortly after, I obtained my degree as a physical therapist assistant and began working to help people move and feel better. However, I always felt as if there was a missing piece to the puzzle. Why would people feel better, but then return to therapy for further treatment as their dysfunction would return.
Then, an amazing transformation occured. I took my first John F. Barnes' Myofascial Release Approach seminar in May of 2008. That's when it hit me. THIS is the missing piece. THIS is the component that will allow for longer lasting healing. I've been taking ongoing seminars since.

I went back to school and obtained my massage therapy license. I am now able to utilize my skills in a more personal way to help people feel better . . . to become whole again. 

It's been my absolute joy and privilege to use JFB’ Myofascial Release Approach to help others find relief from their symptoms and to help people on their healing journey.

In addition, my extensive training as a nationally Certified Lymphedema Therapist has helped me be more sensitive to those patients dealing with lymphedema as well as those going through treatments for breast cancer and other health issues. 

I live in New Stanton, PA with my husband, Jay. We are both musicians, playing in several different bands, and I've revived my dad's 40's style big band, The Wally Gingers Orchestra. 

Between the two of us we have 5 children, with 6 wonderful grandchildren that we adore and love to spoil. We share our love for music, our faith, family, and friends, and we proudly claim "beach bum" status as often as possible..
