Q. I've never had a treatment with Sarah Borda at bodyHeart before. What will it be like, Sarah?
Your first visit to bodyHeart is your
experience and although we are addressing this here, we would like you
to understand that what you experience is yours and allow it to be just
that -- “time with yourself.”
I will begin by reviewing your INTAKE FORM
(see right column), which allows me to know you better. We
will discuss any information from this form that seems relevant to your
treatment. Your current health condition, emotional nature, accidents
or trauma that you have experienced are all important.
I will then give you a tour of the
and show you to your room.
If you are receiving an MFR treatment, I
will start with a short postural analysis and structural evaluation
with your clothes on (please wear sports shorts/sports bra), before I proceed to hands-on treatment.
If the therapy that you are receiving
requires clothes off, I will leave the room and return after you are
comfortably on your table and under your sheet/blanket.
During your treatment you will remain
at all times and only the part of you that we are focused on will be
I invite input during your session if you
feel that it is important to your treatment or you. Some folks talk;
some folks don’t. I encourage you to go with how you are
feeling at that moment and understand that every session can be
different because we are all different all the time. Sometimes things
will “come up” for you during a treatment or
afterwards, and I encourage you to be present to all physical,
emotional and mental shifts. All is good.
I also love feedback so I can serve you
better. Communication is the key to building a trusting relationship.
view our session with you as an honor and a moment of partnership
between giver and receiver.
What if I have to cancel my session?
24 hours notification is required
to avoid session fee charges for rescheduling or
We accept Mastercard/Visa to reserve your
session. Your credit card will be charged for the full session fee if
24 hours' notification is not given for rescheduling or
Will I see immediate results?
We are all unique and our process of
has its own unique rhythm as well. Many times, my clients will book
multiple sessions in one week so that they can have the benefits of
COMPOUND TREATMENTS over a short period of time.
Rather than spacing them out over a long
period of time, it has been my experience that results happen faster
when clients receive 3-6 sessions close together. Simply put, the
benefits are compounded.
My experience has also shown that clients
who perform MFR self-treatment techniques at home have more
long-lasting, positive results.
I'm seeing a chiropractor or physical therapist for my condition, will
Myofascial Release Treatments help or hurt my progress?
Chiropractors are primarily working with
hard tissue (bone) and I am working with soft tissue (fascia,
After receiving a diagnosis from a
doctor, physical therapists may only treat one
specific area of your body.
As a Myofascial
Release Therapist, I will be treating your entire body, accessing the
tight tissues that are causing and exacerbating the problems that the
other healthcare professionals are also working on.
In other words,
your care with your chiropractor and/or your physical therapist will
BENEFIT from your MFR treatments at bodyHeart.
MFR and massage help with recovery from surgery?
Here is a testimonial from a client that
directly answers this question:
have had the pleasure of working with Sarah from bodyHeart for almost a
year now. Prior to working with bodyHeart, I viewed massage therapy as
a LUXURY only to be experienced whle on vacation.
was recommended I seek body treatment to assist with recovery,
following several operations. That led me to bodyHeart Therapy and the
technique of Myofascial Release. From the initial treatment I
significantly improved my recovery and this has brought me a better
realization of my body.
would highly recommend bodyHeart to anyone who is looking to better
their physical and mental well being.
