Welcome

Break the cycle.  Redesign life.  Specializing in myofascial release.

One in four people in the United States experiences chronic pain at some point in their life.  Chronic pain contributes to a decreased sense of well-being and decreases the quality of life. As an occupational therapist, I recognize the uniqueness of each individual and how pain affects life. To truly manage pain and become well, a multifaceted approach is required.  Pain reduction and management is not “one size fits all”.  A combination of hands-on intervention and simple lifestyle changes is key.  The goal of Mayer Wellness is to help individuals break the pain cycle and redesign a satisfying life.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial release (MFR) is a gentle method of soft tissue mobilization that lengthens the fascia.  Fascia is connective tissue supporting all the structures of the body.  Its role is to both support and protect. After an injury or after prolonged poor postures the fascia can become tight and maladaptive placing stress on other tissues.  Myofascial release gently promotes the fascia to return its normal fluid and flexible state allowing blood to flow normally to the tissues of the body.  This promotes healing, improves posture and reduces pain.  MFR can be used with almost any kind of acute or chronic pain.  Learn more.

Yoga Training and Therapy

As a method for promoting wellness and managing pain, Yoga is growing in popularity in the United States.  Integrating yoga into daily life is a proven method for reducing stress and improving health. There are many barriers to good health and integrating wellness practices.  One to one or small group training can increase success in adopting and sustaining the use of yoga as a wellness strategy.  Sessions may be scheduled at your home, your workplace or my office.

Ergonomics

Ergonomics is the science of matching work tasks to the human body.  People today are engaged in repetitive and sedentary tasks at work and at home. Prolonged poor posture can lead to tight muscles and tight fascia. Improving posture by creating neutral body positions allows blood to flow and keep tissues healthy during work and leisure activities.  An ergonomic evaluation of your work or home based workstation can help keep you and your family safe, preventing problems both now and in the future.

Holistic Stress Management

Our world has become filled with constant stress. Stress and the related outcomes have become one of the leading reasons for a visit to the physician.  Yet physicians don’t generally have time to address the causes of stress and options for management.  Learning to effectively manage stress is critical to good health.  Creating a successful stress management practice involves identifying barriers, opportunities and practice preferences.  There are many options to manage stress.  The key is identifying which strategy fits with your lifestyle.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy supports people who have experienced illness or injury return to optimal functioning.  Mayer Wellness offers specialized services to these individuals after insurance benefits have expired. I will help you design a focused individualized plan to continue your path to healing. Learn more.

There are not enough words to fully say how Amy has helped me. She is very caring and kind which makes you feel very comfortable in her sessions. I know when we talk that she is listening and is very informative and compassionate in helping me with my issues! I feel that she is committed to providing the best possible therapy for me. I love when she is working on my muscles and then they loosen up due to her knowledge and experience and then she says, ” And this is why I love my job!!!” Thank you for helping me!!! Looking forward to my next session!   -Terri

At first, I started seeing Amy for myofascial release. However, during different appointments, I would mention other minor aches and pains. Amy has helped to relieve all of my problem areas. Due to her calm demeanor, I was relaxed from the first moment I met her. Amy is a great listener; she’s compassionate and caring as well as being very skilled and knowledgeable. Amy gave me easy stretches and exercises to do at home which continues to help. After several months I am still seeing Amy, but now for maintenance and to start learning yoga. I highly recommend Amy!     -Joanne

I went to see Amy Mayer for multiple issues that other medical modalities have not been able to resolve. Additionally, besides the therapy, I received she offered significant information and suggestions that could help my issues.Unfortunately, she could not just push a button and all my issues would be resolved. With her input and assistance, I am working on problem areas and anticipate improvement. I find Amy to be extremely professional, competent and knowledgeable. I fully intend to remain a client of her’s. -John Baines
