Inspired to go into healthcare by her grandparents, Roxana has dedicated her life to her passion. She truly enjoys helping others find their balance in whole body healthcare, using physical therapy, Myofascial Release and Rehabilitative Pilates. She believes that by educating her patients, they have the greatest opportunity to heal. Her grandfather was a prominent podiatrist in Cuba and her grandmother regularly attended those in need at her church in Havana. This dedication to helping others is an intrinsic part of Roxana’s life.
Born in Cuba, Roxana immigrated to South Florida in 1982. As a teenager, she volunteered over 3,000 hours at several physical therapy clinics at local hospitals. She received her Master’s in Physical Therapy from Florida International University in Miami, FL, nearly two decades ago. Since then, she has specialized in concierge orthopedic and geriatric physical therapy and wellness through her Miami based company, Therahands.
Roxana’s extensive training in Rehabilitative Pilates and the John F. Barnes Approach to Myofascial Release gives her patients a unique healing experience. She is certified in Pilates Rehabilitation from Polestar®, as well as the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA). For several years, she taught at Polestar® in South Miami and she is an active mentor for Polestar® education. As a practitioner, Roxana goes above and beyond to educate, heal, and guide her patients and clients to attain and surpass their goals so that they can live a life of maximum potential, free from pain and dysfunction.
When people are hurting, it is not uncommon for their lives to be severely impacted. Rachel O’Neill, LMT knows this firsthand. While working as a chef, she fell and fractured her tailbone and sacrum. For 15 years, she struggled with debilitating hip and sciatic pain. Sitting for long periods of time was impossible as was walking long distances.
To find relief, Rachel tried anything that was recommended to her. After the Orthopedic surgeon did a slew of tests, he couldn’t find a reason for her pain and wanted to do surgery. She ran from his office and tried other treatments, like chiropractic, acupuncture, craniosacral therapy, massage therapy and physical therapy. She never found relief.
After a particularly painful experience at an insurance-based Physical Therapy office, Rachel’s pain and dysfunction was at an all-time high. Someone recommended Myofascial Release. With nothing left to lose, she made an appointment.
That appointment changed her life forever. Not only did Myofascial Release address the root cause of her pain and dysfunction, she went back to school to become a massage therapist. She bacame a Myofascial Release therapist so that she could help others find a resolution to their dysfunction and end their pain.. It also brought her partner, mentor and friend Roxana Molina-Lopez into her life.
Rachel O’Neill, LMT is the Co-founder of Myofascial Healing Center. She manages the day to day business at Myofascial Healing Center as well as a treats her clients as a Licensed Massage Therapist and a Myofascial Release Therapist.
in 2008 a friend recommended a book to Jeann by John F. Barnes, the “father” of Myofascial Release - and she never looked back.
Since then, Jeann has devoted her professional career as a massage therapist to mastering the principles and developing her artistry of this extraordinary work.
Credentialed at the expert level in the Barnes method, and licensed in both Florida and Hawaii, she is thrilled to join with Roxy and Rachel in providing the highest level of compassionate care to the clients of Myofascial Healing and Pilates.
