"As a film editor who lives in a remote area, I spend the majority of my waking hours deskbound or car-bound in a seated position. Over the years, I’ve developed chronic stiffness, pain and tension in my neck, shoulders, and lower back. For the longest time, the only relief I thought I could seek or afford was monthly massage sessions. And before I found my local go-to therapist, I was always hopping around from one cheap massage deal to the next, crossing my fingers that the next person would be able to “grind their elbow" into the right spot. It was always a game of hit or miss. The global pandemic changed all that. Fortunately, at the same time in-person massage became out of the question, Brian started offering his brand of Self-Myofascial Release group classes on Zoom. Brian’s classes have truly helped to change the way I understand and inhabit my body and have empowered me to take control of providing my own relief to pain and tension—and in a safe, relaxing, and healing way. They have enlightened me to the structural underpinnings of how the various parts of my body are interconnected, leading to plenty of aha moments. For example, I had never known that the tightness in my quads contributed so much to lower back tension. And I have always felt knots under my armpit area but never knew how to address them. With Brian, every class is a new adventure, a new connection to become aware of, a new point to discover—and Brian himself is an endless well of knowledge in his area of expertise. For anyone who has ever maintained a regular massage-seeking habit, I would highly recommend giving Brian’s classes a spin. The relief is immediate and the amazement of taking control over your own body is long-lasting."

"I've been working with the human body for 15 years and Brian's knowledge of the human system is extensive and impressive. His Myofascial Release sessions are on point (literally), providing a deep relief unlike any other."
-Collette Cameron, RYT, North Shore Yoga Coop
"Brian's knowledge and guidance has been helpful in understanding my existing injuries better. The more I understand where an imbalance is and why, the better I can move with awareness and help the healing process. We often forget to look upstream and downstream of our injury or "stuck" part of the body. Focusing on how it all works together; mind included, helps prevent future injuries through mindful movement. The mind/body connection is important and Brian has a unique and effective approach to understanding that connection better. Thanks for your help, Brian!"

"I've known Brian since 2004 when we met in Yosemite Valley. He inspired and supported me with the art of flying, climbing, and living everyday to the fullest. Always so chill, and dedicated to the sacred art of healing people. It's so impressive to look at his resume and think he had accomplished years of school while still climbing, jumping and surfing among many other things. I've been a part of his group Myofascial Release classes and can't thank him enough for how much better I feel! If you don't know Brian, check him out, you won't regret. Thanks Brian."

"I set the world's fastest climbing ascent of the world's most famous rock-climbing route twice this year. Both times Brian Cork worked with me a few days prior to those record ascents. Brian made sure my body was healed from previous training and tuned me for the upcoming ascents.
I would recommend Brian to anyone. Brian has practical knowledge along with an insightful sense."

"I have had issues with my hip for years. When I would walk it felt twisted. I would have a lot of pain from this including lower back pain, even when not walking. I have gone through many different forms of extensive rehabilitation including chiropractics. Everything up until now was only temporarily relieving. After a one-on-one session with Brian I easily had regained 50-60% of the lost mobility and have been without the persistent pain and discomfort for almost a month now.
Very excited for my next session. Chronic pain and reduced mobility can be extremely draining. This bodywork gets straight to the root of the problem. Highly recommended for anyone seeking a true fix and not just another bandaid."

"Thanks for Sunday's session. Enjoying being able to sense and learn my bodies way."

"I went to see Brian 10 weeks after I fractured my clavicle. Everything was stiff and my neck/ shoulders were all out of alignment. We did an hour session of Guided Myofascial release. This non-invasive and relaxed session released tension throughout my body. Coupled with the at-home stretches and movements, I was on the fast track to feeling normal again. 10/10, would recommend."
