Recovery Program - Release Works Myofascial Therapy


Discover the Power of a 3-Phase Approach to Healing That Will Re-Store, Re-Set, and Re-Train Your Body and Mind So You Can Recover 

Re³ - Re-Set, Re-Store, Re-Train


...the autonomic nervous system

  • Commonly known as getting out of "fight or flight"
  • Re-sets the tension levels in the body
  • Sets up the body to allow treatment and change
  • Disarms the (subconscious) protective bracing system keeping you stuck
  • Can include mindfulness, breathwork, awareness, dialoguing, journaling, guided treatment, and gentle manual therapy
  • May be the longest or most visited phase


...fluidity and plasticity of the connective tissue system

  • Addresses tissue that is restricted, knotted, tight, stuck, glued, adhered, thick or hard
  • At a minimum requires addressing tissues immediately surrounding your particular points of pain or difficulty
  • Frequently also requires addressing restricted tissue pulling from other areas including the pelvis, spine, shoulders, knees, and feet
  • Can include guided treatment, self care, unwinding, and myofascial release


...movement and strength in more proper alignment

  • Body relearns how to move in improved alignment
  • Changes are integrated into everyday behaviors
  • Strengthening becomes more effective
  • Includes corrective exercises and posture adaptation
  • May have back and forth as layers of restrictions and habits are worked through

Why These 3 Phases Are Essential To Recovery

Many people get stuck in a Pain Cycle

Pain Cycle

Too much time in the Pain Cycle and the tension levels in the body get stuck on high

More pain equals more tension

More tension equals thicker, tighter, more glued connective tissue

Thicker, tighter connective tissue means more postural and structural misalignment

More misalignment means more pain

Rinse, cycle, and repeat

No wonder it feels like your body is stuck in a straight jacket of tension

No wonder you feel like you can't take a deep breath and just relax

No wonder you are hurting and ready to give up

Our Re³ Recovery Program helps you move into a Healing Cycle

Healing Cycle

Re-set the autonomic nervous system and tension levels of the body so you no longer automatically respond to pain by clenching, tightening, and avoiding

Disarm the protective bracing system so you can begin to acknowledge and allow what you feel

Re-store the fluidity and plasticity of the connective tissue system as you explore and engage with what you feel, allowing change where it previously wasn't possible

Re-train  new movement patterns and habits in a more correct alignment

Feel really good

And then move to another layer

That you might initially clench and brace against, until we help you re-set the tension levels there

Rinse, cycle, and repeat


The Details

Each Re³ Recovery Program provides 20 sessions over a 7-10 week period and requires a commitment to healing. Each program is designed around specific goals that are realistic to your situation. You may need more than one time through a Re³ Recovery program to achieve all of your goals. 

Sessions can include a combination of myofascial release, movement rehabilitation and correction, calming the 'freak out' mode your body might be stuck in, guided treatment, self care, mindfulness, unwinding, breathwork, and strengthening.  All of these will require practice, feedback, and repetition for lasting change. The more troubled something has been, the longer it can take to resolve.

Look What Others Just Like You Are Saying About Release Works


I had a knee replacement and was in great distress and pain. I’d tried massage, chiropractic, saunas, hot tubs, ice, heat, stretching classes, exercise classes, yoga, acupuncture...lots of things. Some helped a bit, for a day or two, some for a week or two, but the issues always come back. MFR is the first thing that has worked on a long term basis. I could go to a chiropractor over and over and over again for an issue that you could actually clear up, whereas a chiropractor doesn't actually clear it up. You take no drugs, and the ability to heal, rather than mask, issues is tremendous.

[The knee replacement] was a lot more intense than I thought [it would be]. You've lowered the swelling, the heat, and the inflammation and you're giving me more movement than I had been getting in physical therapy. We've worked on some other things too…my neck, my back, and we’re going to work on my bad wrist… I'm in for an overhaul. 

I never miss out on things, I power through it. But the difference is, it's nice to not have to power through it, it's nice to have it feel good when I am active. I was always beat up. Now I'm feeling good doing it. Big difference. Easing the muscles and getting them, and my body, supple again… it's amazing.

I skied hard today and kept up with everyone with no problem. My butt is turning rainbow colors of blue & green, but it hasn’t slowed me down at all. My leg is lifting , my body turning and I felt GREAT today. 



Basically I was stuck and losing hope.

I was experiencing sciatic pain in my hip and back area that ran down my leg to my foot. It was the kind of pain that made driving and sitting extremely uncomfortable and would leave me needing to take 1-2 hour long sessions of laying down during the middle of the day, each day. I was taking Ibuprofen twice a day just to function in my job as an outdoor guide, and could not do what I love which is being active in nature - hiking, climbing and skiing due to pain and tightness throughout my hips, back, and IT bands. I tried acupuncture, body code therapy, TENS units, my usual yoga routine, and none of it did more than alleviate the pain and tightness for an hour or so. Basically I was stuck and losing hope. It felt like age, wear and tear, and what I saw as bad genetics was catching up to me.

It has been a little over 3 months since I started working with Release Works, and I am back to hiking, climbing, skiing, and yoga on a regular basis. There is still more work to be done, and I think it is important to understand that your body is always changing. This is the exciting part! Through allowing ourselves to unwind and release, becoming more aware, and discovering the  changing nature of  what is causing us pain, we can experience healing that is lasting.



Back to running and being active. 

Kristal (20s) was already trapped when she found us, her back tightening in pain. She’d been seeing chiropractors and physical therapists since 12 and 15 years of age with only a little bit of temporary relief. She’d given up on being athletic and could hardly be all that active even. Now she was sitting at a desk, trying to be productive but getting even more hunched as her head and back ached.

I remember she couldn’t even begin to arch her spine backwards her spine and ribs were so rigid. She had no clue how that was supposed to work in her body and couldn’t feel the movement at all. (There wasn’t any…)

She was pretty excited coming in one day to show how something had shifted, almost unlocked, and she could get her back arching a little bit.

Kristal has been in less and less back pain, with greatly reduced headaches. She also had a bit of a scare over a cyst putting lots of pressure into her abdomen – these things can be pretty dangerous. Once she felt it reduce and shrink as we treated the area, however, she had no more concern. She was right – medical tests showed we’d helped the cyst to completely disappear.

Kristal is now a big fan of ours as she’s had her headaches and back pain greatly reduced, and she’s back to running and being active. Her life is looking much brighter.
