Release Works

There’s a better outcome for you than what your doctor and society has told you to expect.

Are you tired of being told that you’re “perfectly healthy” for someone of your age even though you know something is not how it should be?

Are you feeling frustrated and let down by the options traditional healthcare offers? Are you looking for something better?

I want better for you.

Welcome to Release Works, a clinic perfect for people who want to transform their health and regain control of their life. We believe life is meant to be enjoyed! For far too long, "sick care" and "pain management" have been accepted as the norm. Many people accept far less than what their body is truly meant to experience. We are here to change that. 

Our vision is to help people find joyful movement in their bodies so they can keep loving activity and life for as long as possible.

We seek to be part of changing people’s approach to health in the Greater Salt Lake Valley. In particular, helping people reclaim the potential of the human body through movement, restoration, and repair of the health of the myofascial system of the body - creating a world where people live with less pain, less fear, and more joy.

About Michael Sudbury, LMT

Specialist Myofascial Release Clinic Founder and Owner

Michael has been in pursuit of uncommon wisdom practically since the day he was born. This has led him through many twists and turns, questioning philosophies and excelling in school only to drop out near the end, abandoning career paths. He has a scientific mind but has come to understand that life and love require artistry, not facts, figures, and protocols.

Jeff's Story

After being involved in a bad fall at work from sixteen feet and having five spinal surgeries and a knee replacement, I was still in a lot of pain. I came up with the idea it must be from all the scar tissue from having back opened so many times. I keep saying I felt like I was being squeezed with a giant pair of pliers around my back and ribs. I convinced my pain management Doctor to refer treatment to Release Works and now after my seventh visit things are really starting to change. I'm sleeping more and longer through the night, pain is reducing and now I'm standing taller and not leaning into my pain. This has made a huge difference for me and without the use of opiates that the Doctor had me on for twenty years. 

Frida's Story

Absolutely loved my sessions with Michael and his team! I was so happy to find their clinic in Salt Lake. Pursuing a career in dance, I was terrified of potential injuries or imbalances and tightness in my body that could hinder my performance or longevity, and I am so thankful for the knowledge and work they did with me to help me not only heal, but continuously discover even more mobility and less pain in my dancing, which also means a longer lasting career! 

Susan's Story

Recently I had surgery to repair a broken collarbone. Because we had future travel plans, the surgeon made it clear that he would not 'release me as a patient' until at least three months after the surgery. I started treatment with both Michael and his team prior to the surgery and continued again a couple of weeks after. At the two month check up, the surgeon stated that my progress was so good that he had not realized it had only been two months. 'I fooled the doctor!' The use of myofascial release techniques and the skill of these practitioners helped me to heal and gain mobility much faster than expected.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is it exactly that you do?

Many people describe what we do as the place where physical therapy, massage therapy, energy work, and personal training meet. In short, we integrate therapies, bodywork, and mindfulness practices to address problems in the connective tissue (myofascial) system of the body. The myofascial system is the only whole body system, and it directly touches and influences EVERY other system of the body.

Our goal is to help you improve the health of this whole body system so you can regain a body that works well and feels good. This will allow you to better care for your one body so you can enjoy a full and active life. We don't focus on pain relief. Improving the health and function of the myofascial system naturally leads to pain relief. We focus on whole body healing and finding the root cause of what is keeping you stuck. True resolution of any problem will require consistent focus and work over a period of time and development of lifetime habits to keep you feeling good.

What is The Hero's Healing Journey?

Our Hero's Healing Journey encourages you to play within larger limits, challenge what you’re capable of, and optimize your body for a more fulfilling life. We can talk intensive or more moderate paces. Either way, the goal is to restore you to confidence and a body that feels great and works right. Each journey is designed around specific goals that are unique to you and realistic to your situation. Expect it to be a START toward a lifelong practice of taking better care of your one body. During a Hero's Healing Journey we will help you begin to

  • Re-set the autonomic nervous system and tension levels in the body.
  • Restore the fluidity and plasticity of the connective tissue system, creating space for the body to move and function better, and...
  • Re-train movement and strength in more proper alignment, developing greater stability and integrating change as a whole.

Full recovery requires more than most of us know or want to admit, and the pieces need to be put together in the order that is right for you. This journey is for those who can commit to going the distance, who can no longer tolerate staying where they are. It is for those who need immersion in bodywork and mindfulness practices in order to create better habits of care for self, and who want to be held accountable for their part in that. You may have a shorter or longer trek ahead of you to achieve all of your goals, but know that you will be changed, for the better.

I've tried lots of things that promised to help, but none of them did. How is this different?

That is a great question. I'd like you to take a minute and consider all of the other things you have tried. What type of solutions have they been? Most of the time when people come to us and say they have tried everything and nothing has worked, they tell us about procedures and protocols that have been "done" to them, or things that come from the outside and work inward. Medications, injections, and supplements that are put into you to "fix" something. Exercises that are prescribed for your "diagnostic label" or protocols indicated by your lab results. Those are certainly valid methods and work for some people. Frequently what happens, though, is the answers and the procedures come from and are solely determined by the expert, based on standard methods, normalized across a population. Your progress is dependent on someone else's wisdom. They are your healer and the hero of the story.

Quite simply, we are different because we believe our role is to be the guide, helping put the pieces together in the way you need, in an order that will be unique to you. We also specifically address problems affecting the health of the  connective tissue system of the body, which is one of the major components missed by traditional healthcare. And we help you tune back into the intuitive, instinctive healing nature that you've lost touch with. In short, you are the healer and hero in your story. We help you do that. And as you do, you will never approach your health the same way again.

We help you get better at feeling and noticing what is happening in your body. We help you better trust what you feel and then act on it.

This sounds like just what I need. How do I work with you?

We are glad to hear that. Thank you for taking the time to get to know about us and our approach! Take all the time you need here. Check out the stories and information here. We can also be followed on FaceBook, Instagram, and YouTube for more information and videos.

For direct work with us, online Body Works Right classes are a good way to get a feel for how we approach and work with the body, all from the privacy of your own home. Keep in mind these classes are general in nature and are not personalized to you. 

When you are ready for specialized help specific to your needs, the next step will be to reach out about working with us. You can use any of the forms here to do that or call us directly to inquire about suitability for a Hero's Healing Journey, Individual Sessions, or our coming Quantum Shift Program.

We start with a consultation, either on the phone, or an in person Discovery Visit to determine whether working with us is the best next step for you. 

If working with us is a good fit for both of us, we then schedule an evaluation and first treatment. This gives us a feel for what it is like to work together, helps us identify your particular patterns and troubles that need to be addressed, and gives us a beginning sense of how your body responds to treatment and self treatment practice. 

From there, we can make a recommendation to fit you and your needs. This includes any Program recommendations or frequency recommended for follow up individual sessions. We can also help you identify milestones so you can know you are headed in the direction you want. You never take the next step until you feel good about it.

All that's left then is to work through your process. It is important to set goals that will allow you to measure and see progress. If you are being unrealistic in your expectations, we will tell you. Please keep in mind, the longer things have been troubled, the longer the recovery, the longer to shift habits.

Will it hurt?

People who see us are dealing with stuck, glued connective tissue, joints that are over-stressed and wearing out, and bony structures that are misaligned and compensating. They are frequently struggling with habits and behaviors that are contributing to this stuckness. As we address troubled areas and get things moving in the totality of the being, people often describe what they feel as a "hurts so good" type of pain. There is a difference between injurious pain and therapeutic pain. There can be a level of therapeutic pain.

We will never force, we will never injure. If it is painful or uncomfortable, we want you to tell us. Understanding how your body perceives and responds to pain is an essential part of healing. We will help you navigate this process, including when you might feel worse.

Will this work for me?

Everyone needs to know if this will work for them.

When life is slowed down or stopped by something, it is frustrating (to say the least) to spend time, money, and energy looking for and trying things that promise to help - only to be let down. If only there were something that actually worked. If only there was someone who really listened, and understood, and knew how to help.

We can promise, if you allow things to change, you will see change. As you work the program, learn to reconnect with your own intuitive healing nature, give yourself the time needed in each stage, never forcing or rushing through, and commit to regaining control of your life, you will see change. We will help you find the things getting in your way, identify what works for you, and support you in the ways you need most.

You will experience more improvement than just 'the thing'.

1st Aid for Back Pain

FREE Downloadable Guide

When it comes to back pain, or any other pain for that matter, the order in which you do things, matters.

This guide is written to address the immediate crisis caused by a back flaring up. It is 1st aid. Take care of the immediate crisis, and then you can move on to deeper healing and recovery.

First Aid For Back Pain

Still Wondering if This is For You?

Here's a quick self assessment to help you determine your readiness to work with us.

If You:

  • Are looking for a quick fix, magic pill, or overnight solution.
  • Are uninterested in learning or taking an active role in your recovery.
  • Would rather take pills or even have surgery rather than take the time and do the work to address root causes.

Then we will NOT be a good fit for you

If You:

  • Are willing to take an active role in your recovery and be consistent and stick with it when things get difficult.
  • Can consider that true resolution goes beyond the spot that hurts, and that the temporary absence of pain does not mean you are done.
  • Want better care and maintenance than drugs and surgery for the one body you have in this life.

Then, just like the people above, you can expect a truly transformative outcome

Hi, This is normally where motivational and inspirational words would go. If you've made it here and haven't gotten started, I don't have any words to convince you. But I do have a question. How long are you going to let something get in the way of feeling great?

See you soon!
