My life changed the day my sister set up an appointment with Megan for me. I shattered my femur
in a car accident and for several years my leg was twisted and hurt from the ball of my foot to
my back. Megan released the restrictions in my leg and since that day I have been pain free. She
also taught me self treatment to prevent further pain and treat other areas of my body such as
my shoulder and chest which were also injured in the car accident. I visit Megan every chance I
get when I'm in town seeing family. Megan's knowledge and skills transformed my injured body
back to a healthy one. My quality of life has increased tremendously. Thank you Megan, you are

When I first started seeing Megan, I was having a lot of pain from a shoulder problem I had off
and on for most of my life. It had become unbearable. She was able to pinpoint where the
restrictions were right away. Not only that, she taught me several self-care techniques I could
use at home to speed up the healing process. I found I was feeling better every week and because
of her I was able to avoid getting cortisone injections. She brought me from a very limited,
painful range of motion to pain free. I am a 100% believer in myofascial release and Megan is
the best practitioner you will find. I would not hesitate to use her in the future should I find
myself in need and would highly recommend her to anyone who is struggling with their health.

I started to have headaches that impacted my function; I would lose a half-day each time. The
headaches started to come closer and closer together until I was having one every other week.
I previously had a history of having only an occasional headache a year. I felt the headaches
were stress related. Over the course of almost a year I went to my primary care physician, a
massage therapist, and eventually an acupuncturist. I received no discernable relief of my
headaches, even though these types of services usually worked for me. I was a little sad that my
headaches weren’t improving, even though I was actively seeking relief. I had heard of Megan
through a pilates/yoga facility. I knew a little bit about myofascial release, so I thought that
might be the next logical step. Over the phone, Megan was polite, professional and quickly
booked three visits with me right before the December holidays. It took some myofascial
detective work, some intense services with Megan, and a commitment to self-care at home, but I
can now say I am stress-headache-free even though my occupation remains quite stressful. I see
Megan now for occasional MFR tune-ups to try to prevent my body from reacting so severely to
life stressors. Her tune-up services are part of my "self-care" regimen now! Thank you Megan.

A friend suggested I consult with Megan after I became frustrated with my lack of full recovery
from a shoulder injury. Having completed a year of physical therapy I still experienced chronic
pain and some limited movement. Megan thoroughly analyzed my body movement patterns and
determined that nerve impingement was a result of my posture. She was able to release and
stretch muscles that were impairing my movement, allowing me to strengthen my back, chest and
shoulders. Megan considered my whole body in her treatment. She realigned my hips to improve my
posture and identified other areas that were contributing to my shoulder pain. Megan's analysis
of my whole body movements significantly contributed to a speedy recovery. The fact that she
considers the whole body in her treatment plan is key to a full recovery. I highly recommend
Megan; her strong knowledge and insight in body awareness enables her to develop the most
effective and efficient course of treatment showing immediate improvements.

After my two children were born, I began to experience back pain along with sciatic irritation.
It would get very painful to the point where I walked with ice all day and lived on Motrin. I
tried chiropractic manipulation for five years on and off. It would provide relief but it was
always temporary. I then moved to traditional physical therapy but they just didn't seem to "get
it" - I was doing the same things that everyone else was doing there and getting no relief. I
was complaining to my neighbor one day and she recommended Megan. My neighbor had three back
surgeries and said Megan was the only therapist who ever made a difference. Off I went! At first
I politely demanded to know what myofacial release was about. I am a nurse so it had to make
physical sense to me. I really enjoyed talking at length with Megan to get an understanding of
this whole new concept. I knew I was onto something good. When Megan began her work I was
confused by her areas of concentration. But I quickly learned that everything is connected and I
trusted her to know what to do. After three sessions my back pain was markedly lessened. After
six sessions I was back on my own. I am doing the exercises that Megan taught me and I do them
meticulously because Megan wouldn't have it any other way! I have only had minor flare ups but I
quickly "get on my ball" that Megan gave me and I do everything she taught me. No more Motrin,
no more ice. I have gotten my life back and am fully exercising without limitation. What I liked
best was Megan's personality. She is respectful, intelligent and believes in her work. I would
highly recommend anyone to go to Megan because she is onto something great!
~ Lisa, Age 38, Nurse
I went to Megan on the recommendation of a friend. I had four surgeries on my lower back and
neck. I continued to have pain and discomfort. Megan has gotten me out of pain and back to work
and golf. She has improved my quality of life dramatically.

Thanks to Megan I didn't have to give up going to exercise classes or my profession. For years
after pilates classes my back was a little sore but nothing I couldn't live with and then the
day came when I couldn't get out of bed because my back went into spasm. I thought my days of
exercising were over for good as well as my work as an interior designer due to all the lifting
that is required in that job. My doctor recommended I try myofascial therapy with Megan. So I
went for a treatment and in one session Megan discovered the root cause of my back problem which
was not the area where the spasm occurred, but in fact far removed from it. I began to learn the
whole amazing point of this therapy, open the fascia wherever it is restricted and this will
release the fascia around muscles in other parts of your body so that they then begin to work as
they are intended to. I have not had a problem with my back since I began myofascial treatment
but do continue to see Megan on a maintenance basis to get ahead of any restrictions that are
beginning to appear. Thank you Megan, because of you I will continue to be the oldest person in
my exercise class and moving furniture forever.
~ Joan, Age 70, Interior Designer
Megan has helped me mange my chronic neck and back pain issues with her skillful and patient
release techniques. Megan's hands-on work is very healing and effective. She teaches you self
treatment techniques to do at home and is a true "caregiver" in every sense of the
word. Thank you Megan for all you do.
~ Nadine, Age 44, Physical Therapist
I began working with Megan about a year ago, knowing little at the time about myofascial
therapy. In the evaluation she quickly saw some areas that needed work. Shortly after beginning
our sessions together I saw a dramatic increase in flexibility and overall mobility. I had no
idea how restricted I was before working with Megan. Myofascial release therapy has benefitted
me immensely both on and off the course.
~ Brian, Age 26, Professional Golfer
After years of weight training together with an occupation that requires long hours of standing,
myofascial therapy with Megan has given me relief from chronic aches and pains. Practicing some
home care treatments and weekly visits have offfered me new mobility and flexibility that I
thought was lost for good. I am very pleased with the results I feel after just a few months.
~ Roger, Age 51, Funeral Director
Myofascial therapy with Megan is an amazing whole body experience. An overall assessment begins
immediately in the first treatment. Megan uses her traditional training but is also guided by
incredible intuition. Therapy with Megan is an experience that is powerful and comforting.
Myofascial release offers a path to healing chronic pain.
~ Laura, Age 52, Publisher/Yoga Teacher
Without any exaggeration, I can say that Megan's myofascial therapy has changed my life! I had
been afflicted with chronic Lyme disease and took antibiotics for a year before meeting Megan.
Almost a year after completing the antibiotic treatment, I still suffered from pain, stiffness
and restricted movement. I experienced frequent injuries after exercising and I felt weak and
was lacking the energy to exercise the way I wanted to. I had tried many different types of
holistic treatments, which only gave me temporary results. After only two sessions with Megan, I
began to feel different. My body felt lighter and more flexible and I suddenly had more energy.
I no longer felt like I was stuck in a straightjacket. Megan identified my pelvic rotation and
gave me exercises to keep my pelvis balanced so I could start exercising without injury. When I
would wake up in the middle of the night in pain, the myofascial therapy balls gave me quick
relief so I could go back to sleep. I can't believe how my stamina for exercise has increased -
at 43 years old, I now can keep up with a 25-year-old in TRX class! Myofascial therapy seems
like magic because it is such a simple concept that not only treats the symptoms, but cures the
causes. I feel that antibiotics got rid of the Lyme disease, but they also almost destroyed me.
Myofascial therapy is what's healing my body.

For several years I have been living with a partially frozen shoulder. Within the past year I
started also having trouble with my hips and left knee. About that time I learned about Megan
and myofascial release while attending a yoga class at the Whitman Wellness Center. Not knowing
much about the technique, I decided to give it a try. I had been to regular physical therapy and
it did not seem to help. Megan assessed my entire body and gave me valuable information of whole
body changes I could make which she believed would help me including how to stand properly and
recommendations for different footwear. Megan worked on my shoulder, hips and knee and I have
experienced unbelievable improvements to all of them. I now have almost full range of motion in
my shoulder and my hips and knee pain has subsided dramatically. I am so happy with my results
and very thankful to Megan for making it happen.

Finding Megan has completely changed my quality of life. She is a skilled doctor of physical
therapy and a compassionate person who cares about her patients. I took my health completely for
granted until the summer of 2013. After experiencing a difficult period of stress while at the
same time of shifting hormones, I began to experience debilitating abdominal and back pain,
exhaustion, and overall muscle pain to the point I would lay on the couch and cry. I went from
being a person who only went to the doctor for a physical to constant appointments and invasive
tests to no avail. Little did I realize that fascial restrictions, especially in my psoas
muscle, were the cause of so much trouble. I have been seeing Megan for almost a year and have
seen a significant improvement from her treatments. The only answers the medical community gave
me were to go through more tests and take prescription medicines, which I did not want to become
dependent upon. Megan has released many restrictions and helped me reclaim my life. I highly
recommend Megan for anyone who has chronic pain issues and is seeking to live a healthier life.

My daughter was diagnosed with scoliosis a few years ago and the curvature in her spine was
severe enough that she had to wear a back brace. The doctors explained that the brace would not
straighten her spine but would hopefully stop the curve from worsening. A friend told me about
Megan and my daughter has been seeing her about once a month since her diagnosis. At my
daughter's last doctor appointment we were told that the curve had actually improved! I strongly
believe that this is attributed to the myofascial therapy and Megan's expertise in the field.
Between the visits to Megan and the exercises she gives my daughter to do at home, the degree of
the curve in her spine has decreased. We couldn't be happier with the results!
