– Alison

“Wow! Skin Rolling is a make you feel good class after all the skin rolling. I feel very relaxed, I am also amazed that when holding the skin, you can really feel it melting away in your hands. Meaning you can actually feel the fascia release. So cool, I like that it’s your working with the body and it knows what to do. This is a class worth taking. Frances is a really patient and great teacher.”
– Barbara Uyeda

“I typically feel that massage is invasive at some point during the session. With this skin rolling technique, I was given a chance to relax and work with the giver. The slow, focused touch allowed my entire body and mind to give in to the healing I deserved and needed. This was incredible. Thank you Frances.”
– Megan Cowie

“I have a new understanding of what skin rolling is. From an intensity that is painful and aggressive to an intensity this is releasing, relaxing, and with increased flexibility. The video presentation and the handouts were excellent. Good class participation, and the bodywork was great.”
– Doyle

“I enjoyed this class so much! I learned about working with scar tissue and adhesions. It’s amazing to learn how the skin can be so attached to the muscle and underlying tissue, which contribute to severe tightness and constrictions. Rolling the skin helped me feel so much looser and flexible. It’s an easy to do, slow and relaxing. A wonderful experience.”
– Jeanne Marie
