Fascia, or the spiderweb-like, tough, connective tissue that surrounds every muscle, bone, vein, artery, organ, and nerve in the body, is one giant sheet, an uninterrupted web that connects everything in the entire body. When fascia is bound up it causes pain, lack of mobility and imbalance. It can also be the source of fatigue, postural problems, inflammation, emotional trauma, dehydration, nutritional imbalances, repetitive stress injuries, and more.
Fascia has 6-10 times more sensory nerve perception than muscle or the skeletal system. When we modify fascial restriction, or release fascia, a large percent of the time pain disappears! Much more research is being done on the role of fascia, and we are only at the tip of the iceberg. We are gaining more understanding that having a healthy fascial system is key to maintaining health both physiologically and psychologically.
Myofascial Release is a safe and effective form of soft tissue hands-on manipulation that works with the fascial system to enhance movement and functionality in the body. When fascial restrictions are released, space is created, and we restore movement, flexibility, and balance. Benefits may include: decrease in tension and pain, increased range of motion and mobility, helps the body realign itself, improves posture, relieves stress on joints, increases energy, promotes healing, enhances hydration, circulation, lymph drainage and nerve conduction. It also enhances the overall mind body connection. Myofascial release is the number one recommended trigger point therapy!
Laser therapy is a revolutionary new low-level laser light therapy. Also known as soft laser, or cold laser or even healing laser. Laser is beneficial for temporary relief of muscle and joint pain, arthritis, muscle spasm, stiffness, relaxation of muscle tissue and to increase circulation.
Jamie has had great success with cold laser in treating foot and hand neuropathy. Furthermore, she has had success in treating horses, dogs, and cats with cold laser! Various types to injuries: hip dysplasia, tendonitis, and ligament injuries, just to name a few, have responded extremely well to cold laser therapy.
Jamie was born and raised in Wyoming in the ranching community. She has remained connected to horses and raises some of her own. She also loves to team rope with her husband, Mike. They live on a small acreage in Goshen County where they also raise premium horse hay.
Jamie has worked in the health care profession most of her adult life. Obtaining her AAS in Dance and Pre-Med, she graduated as top student in her Medical Assisting school. She worked with a chiropractic doctor in Laramie, WY for 20+ years, gaining valuable knowledge and skills. She recently obtained her certification in the Rossiter Method of Myofascial Release, adding that to her extensive skill set of Nimmo trigger point therapy, reflexology, and stretching makes her an extremely well rounded therapist. She honestly believes that people should be able to live their best pain-free life!
