    Best massage we've had to date and loved the hot towels, which were a surprise for a home service. Hubby & I frequently have massage services at home or spa/hotel (at least monthly), so this says a lot about Roxanne's skills.

About this pro

I am a John F. Barnes trained Myofascial Release Practitioner in the Jacksonville area. I have knowledge and training in physiology and anatomy. If you have tried everything else and exhausted all your options, MFR is your way to go. I integrate MFR into all of my sessions and found that this approach can be applied anywhere in the body to address tightness, tension, pain and other symptoms. It makes sense, it's safe, no drugs, creams, oils or exercises needed. I will teach you self care tips that you can use at home between treatment. The American Back Society credits physiotherapist, John F. Barnes, with one of the most important advances in healthcare in the last century, for his understanding of the fascial system, muscle memory and chronic pain. I am honored to have been taught by him and to be practicing his approach to healing. I love the fact that massage therapy is healing not just to the client but to the therapist as well. It's not a job, its almost like entering a therapeutic, meditative state. I can center myself, tune in to my client and connect with them as I allow my intuition to take over. It is said that we each have a calling, massage therapy is mine. I was born into a very holistic family. That deeply intuitive environment, from a very early age taught me to appreciate the significance of mind-body healing, and the fact that it is not only the most essential, but the most effective part of healthcare. I do this every day and its not a job.

    Q & A

    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      Last year the required continuing education courses needed for me to remain state compliant was 24 hours, I reported 60 but did more than 100 hours. I love expanding my knowledge in massage.
    • How did you get started doing this type of work?
      I new from a little girl that this is what I wanted to do. I grew up in the field of massage, because of the family I was born into. I can't remember massage not being a part of my life. I always found a reason to give a massage. In fact I was presumptuous enough to think I gave the best massage ever!!......lol. until I went to massage school and found out I had a lot to learn.....lol I was forced to pursue a more "lucrative" profession, and so I did for many years. Eventually, my father had a stroke and I took a look at my life, realized that I needed to do what I really wanted, life is too short to waste time doing what doesn't fulfill you!!
    • Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
      One of my clients had her last day of radiation therapy and requested a massage. After the session she said she felt relaxed and all she needed now was a glass of wine. I felt happy to be able to bring her such relief knowing all that she had just been through. One of my young clients (11 yrs old) came to me with a hyper-extension of the neck, she was unable to turn her head. After her treatment, I called her mom to see how she was doing, she told me her daughter was outside in the pool swimming. I was shocked, but ecstatic.
