The body is designed to function optimally and without pain. - William Hurst, M.D., Cardiologist.

An Exercise Physiologist, Personal Trainer and Licensed Massage/Bodywork Therapist (MAS.1935), Jan knows how to help you progress to your next desired level of health and function, even if it's just a little bit beyond where you currently are.


 

Personal Training


Jan Shaw has worked in partnership with physical therapists, physicians, nurses, and case managers since 1986.

She is most effective with the "baby boomer" and "Gen-X" generations. (born 1944-1981)

Her Personal Training is designed for general exercise or specific functional goals, such as improved strength and endurance, post-rehab conditioning, or medical diagnosis management.

"I consider myself a step beyond Physical Therapy, and often interwoven with it, and a step before the typical gym trainer. I fill that niche, and it's a wide niche." 

"I would say that the majority of people fall into this niche in the health continuum between medical disability and exercise enthusiast. The problem with this segment of people is that they generally get along pretty well, with an occasional dip into the need for physical therapy or medications."

"Without regular physical activity challenging enough to keep up the heart rate and breathing, people in this niche will find themselves gradually cascading toward more and more medical necessity. That is not where we want to go."

Get up and get active!

Find activities that are suitable for your state of health and ability.

Do them regularly on most days of the week.

Choose a variety that will use all of your different muscles.

If you need help getting started, keeping on schedule, or knowing what is safe for you and what is not, that's where I can help you.

Massage Therapy


When the body hurts or doesn't move well, most people would rather fix the root of the problem than falsely masque it with drugs.

The John Barnes Myofascial Release method targets the root of the problem. 

 Pioneered by John F. Barnes, P.T. over  fifty years ago, MFR targets the fabric of the body, the fascia (pronounced with a short "a"). 

Unlike most other techniques, MFR begins lightly and progresses to deep as the tissues relax and safely allow. It doesn't dig in or damage the tissues, so it is safe and highly effective. 

MFR is effective for

  • range of motion (AROM) compromised by injury or surgery
  • Acute problems that just developed
  • Chronic problems as old as decades
  • The posture that is pulled off-center or off balance. 
  • Pain

MFR dovetails wonderfully with Physical Therapy or Chiropractic care.  Many of Jan's clients are referred from P.T.

If you're not sure if you'll benefit from MFR, book a $29 Tuesday half-hour session to try it out.
