Thank you all for your kind words. Yvonne, I am sorry to hear about your recent whiplash accident. Myofascial Release can be very effective in both acute and chronic pain. As long as there aren’t any fractures, extensive tissue damage, or unstable medical signs, the gentle Myofascial Release techniques are safe, soothing, and can help the individual return to function quickly.
Dan is a very successful, intelligent, and courageous man, who went through hell for years. He tried every form of therapy, medication and surgery to no avail. For those that would like more in depth information on his inspirational journey, visit his website, www.getwellhealed.com.
Dan, you deserve a lot of credit. You never gave up!
Jackie, best of luck in starting your new Myofascial Release practice. Initially keep your costs down and have a small “nest egg” until things pick up.
People need to know who you are and what you can offer them, so do some advertising to get started. The word of mouth about the effectiveness of Myofascial Release is enormous. Be patient, for it takes a little time for the momentum to build. Then your satisfied clients refer their friends and loved ones due to the quality results Myofascial Release can provide.
Visit orthopedic surgeons, family physicians, chiropractors and TMJ specialists.
Women’s Health is very important and neglected, so visit the gynecologist with information of how Myofascial Release can help their patients. Also, treat the physician’s office manager for free. He or she will then start to refer copious amounts of patients. As you know, Myofascial Release can only be truly understood by experiencing it.Set up a small booth at a local health fair and give out information on you and offer free 5 minute treatments. You will be swamped and will generate a lot of new patients in good will.
Therapists with a Myofascial Release practice are very successful and all started out small. Keep a positive attitude and you ,too, will be very successful!
