I’ve been in private practice for the past 13 years, since 1998. I successfully work with a wide variety of clients, most of whom are looking for some type of pain relief. Many of my clients have failed other types of treatment and are very pleasantly surprised to finally find an approach that can work for them. I enjoy working with each person as a whole, addressing the mind-body connection in a very simple straight-forward manner. I also provide a lot of patient education and self care instruction in posture, body mechanics, exercise, self myofascial release, and ergonomics.

I had a blooming massage practice going just a few months out of massage school when I went to work part time for a PT who specialized in MFR back in 2005. After my first MFR seminar it was clear to me that I was meant to do this work. So many of my clients have told me of being freed from pain and lack of mobility that they have suffered with for years when no other therapy had helped. I still work part time at the PT office. I teach Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy part time at Hands on Healing Institute but mostly I love giving individualized therapy to my clients in their home or at my home office.

2007- The Guild for Structural Integration, Boulder, CO. (the work of Ida P. Rolf, PH.D.)
2011- The Rolf Institute continuing education program

My name is Jon Stange and I live in Los Angeles, CA. I began a private practice in massage therapy in 1995 while living in Central California. I learned a basic Swedish massage program that felt effortless and natural because I am kind of a hands-on person.

I moved my practice back to LA in 1996 where I became feverishly busy working as a independent contractor in chiropractic, acupuncture, and health clubs as a well as maintaining a private practice. Over the years I continued my education in bodywork before eventually settling in structural work. My first introduction into fascial work was in 2005 at The Massage School of Santa Monica. My instructor Garnet Dupois was incredibly influential in changing my perspective and style of work and I continued my studies at The Guild for Structural Integration in Boulder, CO. The course format was the 10 session “recipe” that Dr. Rolf developed to train her early students from the 1970’s. Her work and vision was that if the structure of the body was out of relationship with itself and gravity, dysfunction and dis-ease would increase. She borrowed some methods of Osteopathy and developed her own paradigm of bodywork that was simple in theory, yet sometimes complex in facilitation. And at times very painful! But mostly it was transformational. Posture improves, pain decreases or abates entirely, emotional traumas are revisited, and vitality is restored and so on. I currently have a private practice in Santa Monica, CA.

Contact Phone: 707-933-7815
Seminars Taken:
750-hour comprehensive massage therapy training; MFR 1, MFR 2, MFR Unwinding, MFR Rebounding, Fascial Pelvis, Skill Enhancement Seminar; Aquatic Massage Training

I am a Nationally Certified Massage Therapist and Bodyworker (NCTMB). I offer Myofascial Release (MFR) sessions in the city of Sonoma and surrounding area. I am available for house calls as well as I see clients in my office in Sonoma.

Myofascial Release is a safe and extremely effective manual therapy that stretches and rehydrates the connective tissue in the body (fascia) in order to eliminate the causes of pain and restriction.

I am passionate about the healing arts and the journey of deeper embodiment. With many years of experience in my own healing and in assisting others to heal, I am deeply committed to discovering new and more effective pathways that help us find more freedom in our bodies. Increased freedom enables us to express who we are, serve others and our planet Earth. This, I find to be an essential part of who we are as human beings.

I have graduated from a comprehensive 750-hour massage and bodywork program at the Providence Institute in Tucson, Arizona. I hold a valid certification with the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) and have pursued many hours of continuing education in the field of Myofascial Release (MFR).

With a deeply intuitive touch and strong embodied presence, I provide a safe and nurturing space for my clients to release physical and emotional blockages. I am able to work with a wide variety of clients and meet diverse needs. I have worked with athletes, dancers, geriatric patients and clients recovering from injuries with equal results. I have an ability to deeply listen to my clients and guide them in an exploration of what is needed to heal and achieve greater levels of physical and emotional freedom.

My specialty is Myofascial Release therapy (MFR). This technique offers a lasting relief from chronic pain, headaches and many other symptoms. MFR can help patients who suffer from fibromyalgia, sciatica, frozen shoulder, whiplash, spinal and disc problems, and scoliosis. By accessing the fascial system of the body with a gentle and intuitive yet firm touch, and by deeply listening to the whole body, the myofascial therapist is able to relieve the causes, not just symptoms, of pain and limitation. As the body releases its contractions, emotional blockages are also relieved. The patient is able to shift limiting patterns in their body and make a leap into a more embodied and fulfilling existence.

Among others, the following conditions have been successfully treated with Myofascial Release:
• Chronic pain and restrictions in the body
• Stress and anxiety
• Neck/ shoulder/ back/ hip pain and stiffness
• Headaches
• Whiplash
• Sciatica
• Frozen shoulder
• Jaw pain and restriction (TMJD)
• Fibromyalgia
• Scar tissue buildup
• Post-surgical recovery
• Post-accident and trauma recovery (auto, work, sports injury)

I am a certified massage therapist specializing the Myofascial Release approach. I am employed at From the Heart Physical Therapy as part of a highly skilled team of Myofascial therapists. I have great compassion and understanding of what my patients go through with pain and dysfunction because my journey began as a desperate patient in 1997. I was told that I would need back surgery in my early 30’s, but it wasn’t until I discovered MFR and was treated by Sepi Aeen, MPT that I finally found relief and restored my active lifestyle as an athlete. My love and passion for MFR is what allows me to continue to help my patients through their recovery. Through my strong athletic background I help restore strength and function.

I started out as a Certified Massage Therapist in 1993, specializing in a form of structural bodywork for 10 years. Then, in 2003, my life was completely turned around at my first Myofascial Release Seminar. Learning about the mind/body/spirit connection of fascia system and how it can be utilized to allow true healing of pain, discomfort and physical dysfunctions, has opened my eyes, ears and heart. I founded the Myofascial Release Center in 2006 and now employ 7 dynamic MFR therapists to share this gift with others in need. As of 2015, I completed over 400 hours of Myofascial Release training and continue to take more classes. I am also a Senior Staff Instructor at the Hands On Healing Institute in Tujunga and am the developer and main instructor for their Focus on Fascia series (over 250 hours); structural Chair Massage series (over 100 hours) and structural Sports/Fitness Fusion Massage course.
