As a DRIVE Body:
The fierce tenacity that drives you to put your head down and keep going leads you to always find a way to get it all done.
And most often, done well!
You’re a movin’ and shakin’, solution-driven, go-getter that thrives on seeing results.
As long as you can keep moving, there is little you can’t achieve when you put your mind to task.
You’re a go-the-distance, finish-strong type. When others say "why?" you say "why not!". You make crossing hurdles and paving the way look easy.
When you commit to something, you see it through. Maybe through blood, sweat, and tears. But completion is your strong suit.
And let’s be real, you already know this to be true! Because this kind of inherent drive doesn’t go unnoticed. You thrive on using your efficiency to your advantage.
But when it comes to your body...
[Cue Paul Simon and his early ‘70’s classic]
You better look around
How long you think you can
Run that body down
How many nights you think you can
Do what you been doin’
Who, now, who you foolin?
Perhaps what has brought you here is the realization that the ability to burn the candle from every-which-end is a blessing….
Until it feels like a curse.
Let’s face it.
It is the drive that keeps your body running like a machine, yet also feels a bit disconnected.
The Drive Body wants to be on the move- physically and mentally. But like any high-performance vehicle, it needs to be maintained to keep from breaking down.
In order to keep the body running smoothly, your tune UP will require you to tune IN.
“We rarely hear the inward music, but we’re all dancing to it nevertheless.”
Like the highly functioning, go-getter that you are, you are no stranger to commitment and determination. When you turn that outward drive inward, there is a wholeness that awaits.
Inside Your Quiz Results You'll Find...
Looking for Self-reliance? Self-discovery? Authentic healing?
This is where fascia comes in!
- Imagine having a consistent and unique communication system for knowing what is going on with your health and wellbeing.
- Imagine this voice delivering clear directions on how to find and address areas that are in need.
- Imagine being the expert who is able to discern, treat and advocate for your current physical, mental, and emotional needs.
- Imagine connecting your pain and physical symptoms with your inner wisdom and intuition to speak in a way that you understand.
Your fascial system is what connects it all. This vast web of connective tissue is often a key to your physical symptoms. Fascia is also a super communicator. And also to you through your awareness.
When injury, trauma, pain, or stagnation (physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual) creates enough disturbance for part of you to feel out of sync, your fascial system is both the lock and the key.
The importance of fascial health:
A healthy fascial system is your greatest ally.
But how in the world do you tend to your fascia?

The Spiral Nature of Fascial Release
The art and practice of Myofascial Release is a beautiful dance. Your body carries the load as life unfolds. It holds your hurts, it is shaped by your beliefs, and it responds to your inward attention. Physical symptoms in the body are signals seeking your care.
Myofascial self-care is a practice that helps you identify where your body is holding, how your body communicates, the ability to discern what you need, and in turn, unlock your body's wisdom.
Although you’ve checked some digital boxes to receive these quiz results, one thing is for certain…
Fascia, in all of its web-like, 3-dimensional, down-to-the-cellular-level, consciousness-wielding glory is NOT meant to fit into a box...
And neither are YOU!
You may have an inherent drive that has you filled with strength and stamina, but we humans are diverse and nuanced. Other parts of your body's wisdom could be speaking a different language.
Hey there! I'm Renie. Soul seeking, fascia fanatic, recovering drive body!
This is how it all began...
Nearly two decades ago, I was freshly separated, single-mom’ing, and in the very early stages of my Myofascial Release career. I was searching long and hard for clarity, the next right steps, reassurance, and for a light in the chaos.
Outside of Portland, Maine in the early 2000s, there were very few MFR therapists. For me, the passion ran high for this ‘work’ that spoke to me like a calling. Saying I was eager to learn is a massive understatement. Some, at that time, may have said I was consumed.
I was awakening.
Myofascial Release was that light I was searching for in the chaos. My experiences at that time were immersing myself in John Barnes Myofascial Release seminars while trying to create a new life for me and my young daughter. And the same message was reinforced over and over and over again….
The answers are within.
And IN, I went.
Exploring the fascial system with a foam roller and ball, in my near-empty, sun-drenched apartment that was full of hope and wonder, felt like a brand new life.
I got quiet and listened. And started to hear the natural language of the body that communicates and speaks through the fascial system.
A lot of life has happened since those early MFR days. It’s an honor to meet you here on the path that was forged all those years ago. Let's see what we can discover together!
