Welcome to the world of John Barnes Myofascial Release and what it has to offer for long-lasting pain relief and overall physical and emotional well-being.

I was introduced to Myofascial Release while on vacation in 2001. It was one of the most profound and life changing experiences that I had encountered. I spent the next five years learning everything I could about Myofascial Release, using the knowledge to be healthier, more energetic, and most importantly to be the best mom I could be.  My lifestyle was based on natural/ homeopathic health decisions – Myofascial Release became an integral part of it. Everything from ear infections to possible braces, were successfully addressed.

I eventually decided to start using Myofascial Release as a career choice and almost immediately found myself working with the Minnesota Vikings on a weekly basis. Focusing on sports injury and scar tissue.

I named my business Charoite, after the beautiful purple crystal from the river Char in Russia. The crystal is said to ‘Inspire service to others’, and is ‘the Stone of Transformation’.

At Charoite Myofascial Release, my goal is help you achieve your health and wellness goals by facilitating your healing journey, teaching self-care techniques, and enabling you to to sustain long-lasting relief.
