Hi! My name is Corrie Sawatzky, Certified Massage Therapist, Myofascial Release Therapist and owner of Fair Oaks Head and Neck Therapies. I graduated from massage school in 2014, and then continued my education with extensive training in John F. Barnes’ Myofascial Release techniques.
When I was a child, my mom often suffered from chronic ear pain and migraines. As I rubbed her head, I silently begged for the ability to take away pain using my hands. I continued to practice using my hands to help my family, always being the one who would rub my dad’s sore feet, or my sister’s aching back.
I personally know what it’s like to have neck pain, migraines, sinus issues, and TMJD. I thought all of these things were normal before I started massage school. Once I learned about how the tightened muscles and fascia in our bodies can create patterns of pain, and that it’s possible to find relief through hands-on therapy, my entire life changed! I no longer wondered if tomorrow would be a good day or a bad day. I found relief from waking up with a stiff neck and being unable to turn my head for several days. I love the freedom to feel well and move freely, and I am passionate about helping others be free from restricting pain and tightness too.
I have offered massage at many cycling events, gaining much experience with the neck issues common to cyclists. I have enjoyed providing massage for a Relay For Life event, and several Challenge Fondo all-ability cycling events in Durham, CA.
I am so excited to offer you treatments for the relief from pain that my childhood dream, plus years of education, practice, and personal experience have resulted in. I look forward to hearing from you and connecting soon!
