“With Myofascial Release, I began to understand importance of treating the whole body, not just the symptoms and that every ‘body’ is unique,” says Jessica. She believes in treating a person as a whole- physically, emotionally and spiritually, helping clients relieve pain and discomfort as well as get to the root of the cause.
Jessica believes that Myofascial Release is the most efficient and effective form of therapy for pain and discomfort. She has witnessed many clients as well as herself go from living in pain to pain-free and enjoying life.

Cindy Shuff, LMT
Staff Myofascial Release Therapist
Cindy has over 12 years experience in holistic bodywork.
Cindy had worked in the restaurant industry for many years before realizing her passion wasn’t in the food she was making, but in helping people through food. Cindy made a change, and attended the Spa Tech Institute, located in Ipswich, MA, in 2005 to pursue a Holistic Massage Career Program, and as such, began a new journey helping people in a more profound way. At Spa Tech, she reaquainted with a former high school friend, Jessica Kaloutas.
For several years, Cindy practiced massage therapy on a part time level while working full time in the food industry. In 2009, she joined Balanced Healing to dedicate herself to massage therapy. While working at Balanced Healing, Jessica introduced Cindy to the John F. Barnes method of Myofascial Release (MFR) therapy.
In 2014, Cindy attended her first MFR seminar, MFR 1, in Norwalk, CT. Excited with this new technique she had learned and received, she started introducing the technique to her clients. In only a few sessions, her clients greatly improved their range of motion, mobility, and their overall improved well being. Cindy left the food service industry three years ago to pursue MFR full time.
Cindy has continued to further her education in the John F. Barnes method of MFR and is currently an intermediate MFR therapist. She plans to take her Skill Enhancement Seminar in which she will work directly with John hands on by 2018.
Jessica Kaloutas continues to mentor Cindy through her MFR journey at Northshore MFR as Cindy continually expands her skills.
