John Barnes began developing the Myofascial Release Approach secondary to a personal injury with his back. Myofascial Release involves gentle application of sustained pressure into fascial restrictions. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and piezoelectric phenomenon.
He’s been doing much better from a feeding perspective! The morning of my first day of work he ditched the shield and hasn’t used it since! He is taking bigger volumes of breastmilk and doing it more quickly. Thank you!
E has been doing great! She has been nursing wonderfully and she’s even had major improvement with her neck. Thank you so much for all your work with her! I don’t know what we’d have done without your help!!
Leanne is fabulous and I have learned so much from her. She has magic hands and a therapeutic presence.
S latched without a shield and he immediately popped off and gave me a huge smile! He is doing so well, thank you. 🙂
S is doing great!!! It is unbelievable the change in him! Sleeping better at night, keeping most solids down, no fussiness, ear pain is gone, and crawling now. He is just so happy! Thank you!
Praying this continues, but A ate meat the last 2 times I gave it to him! Woop-woop!
I’m more comfortable than I’ve been in a long time doing my exercises, thanks.
You have been such a blessing to me. Myofascial Release enabled me to enjoy life again and I am sooooooo grateful to you and all you have done. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Friday D started to feed without the arching, and he was calm and relaxed! He has patches of tightness sometimes when first latches but it subsides in the first few sucks and he’s doing so much better!
With my first baby, I had a perfect breastfeeding relationship. When the twins were diagnosed with both lip and tongue ties by our lactation consultant, I went on a journey of understanding how it would impact their life both long and short-term. I was able to overcome all of the breastfeeding challenges but it involved a team of amazing individuals. Along with the lactation consultant and Dr. Newman, I was encouraged to see Leanne Lafuze for Myofascial Release Therapy. This aspect of the healing made an amazing difference immediately following the session, the twin’s latch was more comfortable and efficient. Leanne has an amazing bedside manner and takes the time to explain what the babies are experiencing during the session. Each baby had a totally different experience. Grady loved the mouth work but cried during the bodywork. Tatum LOVED the bodywork but struggled during the mouth work. Seeing the healing and positive impact on breastfeeding with the twins following the sessions made it so worth it.
For the first time in weeks, I went down the stairs this morning and didn’t feel too old! And last night, I was walking with very little, if any, pain in my feet!
Wanted to check in with you today and let you know we are seeing awesome results from G’s appt he had with you on Wednesday. He actually had a follow-up appointment with the Chiropractor today from his appointment Monday and as soon as I handed G to Dr. Snyder he immediately asked what he had done since our last appointment with him (Monday) because he felt the difference immediately. He is just in the last 30 hours and started swallowing at every nursing session and we even had a few sessions today that we didn’t have to follow up with a bottle to make sure he had enough to eat.
After E’s appointment with you on Tuesday, the difference in his tummy time was night and day! E has always hated tummy time and I’ve had a hard time getting in the amount of tummy time he’s supposed to get each day. He would always start fussing really soon after starting, I couldn’t distract him with toys or anything, He wouldn’t put weight on his arms, etc. But when we did tummy time on Tuesday evening after the appointment, I couldn’t believe the change! He lifted his head real high, and was pushing up with his arms, looking at the book I had in front of him. And then he rolled over (tummy to back) for the first time and has rolled over several times since!! I couldn’t believe it!! I figured he would be really late to roll over just because it was so hard to get him to do tummy time and have the chance to develop those muscles. So we just wanted to let you know and thank you so much for your work!
My son is eating because of Leanne, she also worked on some scar tissue he had from surgeries right after birth and helped him bring up his trunk mobility allowing him to move and balance better I was a skeptic, not understanding how is going to help. We tried many things before going to Myofascial Release for both our tissue issues and oral aversion. After two treatments, he had improved markedly. He now is a full oral eater, with no feeding tube, no aversion, no texture issues, and a toddler RUNNING around. He did a lot of hard work on his own, but Leanne was a major key to our success.
You have been a HUGE part of my healing and I praise God for you!
I have much less pain from the surgery just after one treatment. As I said, your hands work magic with the release.
She’s been so much better! Her range of motion is great and she’s been rolling so much more. No more gagging. And she’s been sleeping so much better!
She is gaining weight like a champ, and I have zero issues or pain. It’s been going really well. You are pretty much our miracle worker. 🙂
Our little guy has improved by leaps and bounds, and he is finally taking 3 bottles of at least 3oz each every day! Yay! Thank you so much for all you have done for our family! It has truly made a world of difference for our little R!
Thanks for all your help! O is doing so much better–calmer and sleeping more. I’m glad we got to meet you.
I just wanted to say thank you again for your help with Q. Today has been wonderful! It has still taken a few attempts to latch but it feels totally normal, not painful at all!
His sensory score has improved from 72-definite dysfunction last year to 56- average this month!! And 30 points on his fine motor test! I can’t thank you enough for your help!
