“I have been farming all of my life and several years ago I was run over by a tractor. Among my injuries were broken ribs, sternum, collarbone, and most of the bones in my face, sinuses, eye socket, and both upper and lower jaws were crushed. I now have over 20 plates and 60 plus screws holding my face together. This caused nerve pain and discomfort in my face with burning, tingling, numbness and pain. I’ve taken pain relievers which resulted in little or no relief.
After starting MFR, within a couple of visits I saw an improvement. I have regular visits now, mostly once a week. Sometimes I have immediate relief and sometimes it takes a day or two. MFR is the only treatment that has helped relieve my pain and discomfort. With Barb working on my whole body, MFR has helped realign and straighten other damaged areas. MFR has tremendously improved the quality of life for me.”

I have been suffering from chronic pain for 15 years. After receiving the diagnosis of myofascial pain disorder, chronic migranes and fibromyalgia, I began researching options other than perscription medication to manage the pain. Myofascial Release pain release therapy from Barbara Long has greatly improved the quality of my life. The treatments have reduced the number of migranes and the intensity of my pain significantly. Barbara is very skilled at what she does. I would highly recommend her to anyone struggling with chronic pain management!

“I have been going to Barbara for ? years. I introduced her to my daughter after she told me of her car accident and her back pain. We both have had wonderful results. I am 86 years old and walk upright and have a youthful figure–which I attribute to Barbara’s treatment. It is unusual (the treatment) because it is subtle but oh-so effective!

“You just gave my body exactly what it needed. Even after the first session, you turned those thick ‘ropes’ into strings and the ‘bricks’ on my shoulders into ‘dust’. You are awesome. Of course, after my second session, I just feel great! How happy I’ve been with your treatments!”
Jackie, Hanford, CA
“My first experience in MFR therapy with Barbara was life changing for me. I went to Barb with some physical issues and was totally surprised to experience a much deeper body awareness of my needs. MFR treatment awakened my own personal awareness that led me to realize that true healing can come when you learn to look beyond the symptoms to find the true source of the problem.
Although I did not fully understand the emotional feelings that came up in treatment, I felt a safe, trusting confidence in Barbara’s care.
As I continue MFR treatments, I find each session brings more realization of the potential for effective whole body healing for myself…Body, Mind, and Spirit!”

“Several years ago I experienced such terrible pain in my leg that I was taken to the Emergency Room in tears. At the hospital I was given an injection of a muscle relaxant. The tears and pain continued. I was then told I would be given morphine. I thought, thank goodness, the pain will stop. I was sobbing when the pain did NOT stop. Eventually after more morphine, the pain subsided and I was able to go home. After a second episode of excruciating pain and another trip to the ER, I decided to make an appointment to try MFR with Barbara Long. I described where my pain was located and rated the pain in different areas. After that first visit I was convinced that she and MFR were my best choice for remaining pain free. I have recommended my family and friends to her. We have all benefited from her skills. She focuses on finding the source of your pain and removing it. It seems more logical and healthier to treat the problem than mask the pain. She has given me advice and tools to use when I can’t get in to her office. I highly recommend her!

“You have helped me in all aspects of my being–physically, mentally, and spiritually. This has definitely been a healing process. Thank you!”

“After having several abdominal surgeries–including part of my stomach removed and reconstructed–I have so much scar tissue that I would frequently get very sick and need to be hospitalized often because of pain and vomiting. Working with the scar tissue over the past 2 years, you have kept me out of the hospital!!!!”

“Life was great and my body worked well until it started to hurt, ache, and cause me pain and grief. I started to go to doctors frequently and take pain pills and Physical Therapy to fix what hurt, i.e., Stenosis of the spine, bulging discs, arthritis everywhere, and non-stop headaches. After a couple of years, my P.T. suggested Myofascial Release as something to try. I tried it.
Barbara has helped me more than any pill I have taken or procedure I have tired. No more headaches. No more night pain. During the time I have gone for MFR, my body has gotten better. If I have pain, it is nothing compared to what I had before starting MFR. After breaking my ankle severely, tibia/fibula–plates/pins, etc., she helped the after cast pain go away. I would walk into her office limping and hurting and walk out pain free and not limping…MFR is amazing…it works.
I am so much better now than before and I’m only seventy-one. I love horses and love to ride. It almost ended bfore MFR entered my life. I love to be active and my body is working again like it should. All I can say is many, many thanks to MFR and Barbara for helping me so much.”

“Coming to see you has been very physical and spiritually uplifting. I always feel re-energized. I thank you for your being here.”
Cat, Fresno, CA
“I started Myofascial Release therapy because I had been on prescription pain medication for 3 years following a car accident. I had tried Physical Therapy twice but it did not relieve the pain I was still feeling. After 3 months of MFR, I was off all of the pain medication. I only required 2 Advil per day! I continue to receive MFR because it relieves pain and tightness due to stress, lower back pain, strained muscles, and it helps me sleep better. My quality of life would not be the same without it!”

“I originally went to Barbara for treatment of shoulder pain. Some days it would get so bad I could barely more my arm. One day when I was in tears from the pain, my husband, who has been seeing her for treatment for an accident, recommended I give Barbara and MFR a try. I refused to go to the Doctor and take perscription medicine or cortisone shots in my shoulder. I signed up for her Introductory 3 treatments to give it a shot, and that was a year and a half ago!
Barbara has worked her healing hands on my shoulder and my whole body. She has released the pain in my shoulder and many years of past emotional pain and trauma, as well. She is helping me to heal my body and soul. Barbara, your knowledge and love of MFR shines through you. It is truly a gift you have that has helped my husband and me on so many levels–not only with the physical pain we’ve suffered from …but the emotional pain we’ve held on to for so many years. You are helping us to release it all so we can live a more fulfilling life together!!!
Thank you so much, Barb, for all the wonderful work you have done in our lives. My husband and I will always be your regular clients!!!

“I have been seeing Barbara Long for Myofascial Release therapy since August of 2011. I had experienced Myofascial Release in Sedona, Arizona at Therapy on the Rocks, so I knew what to expect as far as treatment goes. Something that I didn’t expect was how quickly I developed a sense of trust with Barbara. Her initial assessment of my body’s condition and her explanation of how Myofascial Release could help me gain optimum health were reassuring. Her early treatments focused on some of the same issues that were discovered in Sedona to be creating pain and poor posture for me. Very quickly, I was able to begin to let go of emotional issues which caused pain and restrictions in my body. Barbara prescribed home treatment and exercises which helped further the benefits of appointments with her. I have been amazed at how she employs Myofascial Release treatments to ease the pain of sinus congestion. She has helped me greatly to resolve pain in my knee with a surgically repaired torn meniscus. The first problem which I asked Barbara to treat was numbness and tingling in my right arm and hand resulting from computer work and driving. After two treatments, I have not suffered from those symptoms again. Another wonderful benefit to seeing Barbara is that she teaches you about your body: the fascia, the muscles, scar tissue, joints, and how they are all connected. She teaches you how to treat yourself at home to continue healing and to relieve any pain or tightness which develops between visits.
Barbara Long was highly recommended to my husband and me by the director of the Sedona, Arizona, Myofascial Release Therapy clinic. After seeing her weekly for five months, I also recommend her highly to anyone who is suffering from pain and tightness in your body.”
