Sue Ellen Strong formed Myofascial Freedom 10 years ago when she joined forces with her mentor, David Crewdson.
After 15 years in the corporate world, utilizing her background in chemistry and business, and the next 6 years serving as the Vice President of the Childrens’ Neurological Solutions Foundation, Sue Ellen felt guided to become a therapist after personally receiving the transformational benefits of myofascial release therapy.
Sue Ellen is an expert in John Barnes’ Myofascial Release as well as craniosacral and neuromuscular therapies, yoga therapeutics and bioenergetics. She especially enjoys utilizing her experience with the special needs population.
She found this therapy to be exceptionally helpful for her daughter Kate who lives with cerebral palsy. Remarkably, Kate’s spine remains straight despite the fact that she has been in a wheelchair her whole life.
The effectiveness of this treatment continues to hold Sue Ellen in awe of its powerful effect on so many conditions.
Jon Kammer pursued a degree in special education but was drawn to the amazing healing aspects of myofascial release through the experience of his daughter Neena, born with special needs. By observing the power of this therapy first hand, he was inspired to become a licensed massage therapist, studying John Barnes’ Myofascial Release intensely. Recognizing his special gifts, David and Sue Ellen invited Jon to join Myofascial Freedom in 2013.
Jon helps his clients gain freedom from pain using myofascial release therapy along with craniosacral techniques, soft tissue mobilization and bioenergetics. His technique improves and augments all aspects of one’s full physical being. It also enhances emotional and energetic balance, promoting better awareness and super health.
Leslie Skillman-Hull, a nurse with over 30 years experience in addressing women’s health care issues, is excited to be expanding to include the John Barnes’ Myofascial Release techniques.
While her clinical practice started in 1975 as a postpartum and labor & delivery room nurse, she pursued advanced degrees in order to influence the nursing and medical community on the unique health needs of each individual female. This journey exposed her to women’s issues of fertility, conception and hormone regulation, maternal infant bonding, pelvic pain, and adolescent health needs.
As a result of her own healing experience with cancer, she experienced first hand the benefits MFR techniques provide. She is proud to integrate her professional and personal experiences by offering the healing properties of MFR for women’s health issues.
