client success stories

My distance energy healing session with Carolyn was absolutely amazing.  Before the session I was in pain, suffering with TMJ.  Carolyn so lovingly helped shift that painful energy out – and fast!  By the end of the session I was feeling so much better.

Doing this work long-distance really works well for me because I live in another state the majority of the year.  I feel so blessed that Carolyn started offering her amazing work in this way – now I can have her help across the many miles.  Thank you, sweet Carolyn.  I love working with you.  You are a true Earth Angel with many talents and gifts and I’m honored to have you helping me.”

My top three goals upon starting the 3 month program with Carolyn were: increasing my physical activity, de-cluttering, and improving my health through food. Carolyn was able to help me work toward these goals by helping me to set attainable (!) goals. She gave me suggestions for taking small steps, which helped me not to feel overwhelmed all of the time.

I am now taking life one day at a time; exercising is no longer a chore but now something I actually look forward to, and de-cluttering is no longer a chore.

I am feeling more positive. I am feeling much better about myself and my home. I love writing down what I am thankful for every day.

I find Carolyn to be very knowledgeable and very understanding. I recommend her to everyone! I am thankful for Carolyn!”


I am beyond grateful that I chose to set aside my anxious fears of an on-line energy session and fully trust Ms Carolyn.

This experience through Zoom video conferencing was truly incredible and far exceeded my expectations of an effective treatment.  I am very much an in person touch client and was skeptical of the benefits ‘long distance.’

The deep relaxation, calmness, and pain reduction that I received the day of my treatment has given me audio memorization that I’ve used to extend these benefits until my next session.  I highly recommend the precious natural gifts that Ms Carolyn is able to offer.”

Wanted to be sure to tell you THANK YOU!!!! I slept like a baby last night. I feel like a new woman:) I’m patiently drinking my water & waiting to let go of even more. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart & all my soul. “


You will never have a more caring and professional massage in your life! Most knowledgable therapist I have ever met.”

For 5 years, I haven’t been able to move my neck fully from side to side. First appointment with Carolyn Barnes at Return to Ease Wellness Center and it’s like the last 5 years didn’t happen. Not to mention a bunch of other not-feeling-great things are starting to feel better. If ever there was a time to use the word magic, this would be it.”


Prior to coming to see Carolyn I didn’t even know what fascia was let alone anything about Myofascial Release (MFR). Having been through a lot in my life I didn’t even know how important this therapy was to me until I started seeing results, immediately.  MFR is the gentle  mind and body journey that I didn’t even know I should take.

Having experienced trauma in my past I realized that the body holds onto that trauma. In working with Carolyn I have made peace with some of this trauma and have begun the journey of release and feeling good.

I can’t begin to express the gratitude towards Carolyn for bringing this wonderful therapy into my life.”

After years of jumping from one massage therapist to another I found Carolyn Barnes!

Carolyn’s ability to assess your needs through conversation, observation and gentle touch is second to none. Her understanding of anatomy allows her to achieve optimal results during each massage. I know this because I have not only experienced it myself, but so have the many family members and friends to which I have recommended Carolyn’s care.

Perhaps what makes the “Carolyn difference,” beyond all other reasons, is that she gives you practical easy stretches and advice to improve your overall health. I recently registered for a workshop Carolyn will be teaching. I simply can’t get enough!

Carolyn’s gift of healing and promotion of well~being is one that should be experienced by all.”

Carolyn has made a huge difference in my health and well being through myofascial release and the self care she has taught me. 

I am amazed how Carolyn is able to look at me visually and read exactly how I’m feeling. Our myofascial release sessions keep me feeling my best. 

Carolyn has taught me how to listen to my body. She is a hands on body healer.”
