I began studying massage therapy in 1989 at Atlanta School of Massage where I
learned Swedish massage and deep tissue. I used these techniques for several
years to treat friends and family.
In 2001, I went back to massage school, this time to Rising Spirit Institute in
Dunwoody, GA. It was there where I first learned about MFR, and about the
world-class teacher, John F. Barnes, who developed MFR in the early 1970's.
I began my studies with Barnes in 2005. First taking seminars in Atlanta, I
pursued Barnes' teachings for four more years, traveling to Philadelphia, Detroit,
Myrtle Beach, and Sedona, Az.
This technique has affected my life in profound ways. The first time I had a client
with long-term pain and was able to help them using MFR, I felt right at home!
Every session is a new learning experience, and as Barnes says, I 'approach each
session with the curiousity of a cat.' I look forward to sharing the MFR techniques
