Soulful Waters Myofascial Release Information Videos
I hope you all are doing well! Here is Part II, the 15 minute concluding sequel of the washing machine saga. I posted Part I of the washing machine saga a week ago on October 15th, which was a 38 minute video of myself talking about myofascial release and going on some random tangents about life while troubleshooting and fixing our 1.5 year old washing machine that recently broke and would not power on. Part II starts with me standing on my utility trailer after purchasing on Facebook marketplace and hauling in a decades old, rock solid Roper washing machine to have as a backup in our garage in case our new washing machine ever breaks down again. Part II also involves myself talking about myofascial release and going on some random tangents about life while installing and testing our second, old school, built like a tank Roper washing machine. A really good friend of mine, that has known me for a long time and understands how I roll, jokingly mentioned that I ought to offer a free myofascial release session to anyone that watches all 53 minutes of both washing machine videos and give a quiz on the video that they will need to pass in order to get the free session : ) .
I hope you all are doing well! Here is a 38 minute video of myself talking about myofascial release and going on some random tangents about life while troubleshooting and fixing our 1.5 year old washing machine that recently broke and would not power on. With regards to new appliances, there is definitely some truth in the old saying that they don't make them like they used to. I was reading that the average attention span on the internet is around 8 seconds, and so I don't know how many are going to watch a 38 minute video. However, the average monthly installment of a Charles Dickens novel back in the 1800's was around 18,500 words. While I am no Charles Dickens, I do think I was born in the wrong century with regards to the length of some of my facebook posts. However, as Albert Einstein once said, "The person who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The person who walks alone is likely to find himself [or herself] in places no one has ever seen." So if you are in acute or chronic pain and/or want to take a preventative approach to health care. If you feel like your pain has had you in a spin cycle like the spin cycle of a washing machine. Let's slow that spin cycle down, get you out of that spin cycle, and get you back to an active and pain-free lifestyle. Or imagine your pain to be like a broken washing machine that has been there for so long that you have finally given up hope and feel like you are going to have this pain for the rest of your life. So what are you waiting for? Don't lose hope. Your life is not going to be like a broken washing machine of pain for the rest of your life. Let's get this washing machine started again. Let's get you feeling better again. And let's get you back to an active and pain-free lifestyle. Book a myofascial release session today at soulfulwaters.com! I look forward to seeing you soon!

I quickly made this Myofascial Release video about fifteen minutes before my son and I left early yesterday morning to play disc golf at Bailey Park in Cornelius, NC with family friends. In this video I talk about how, as a Myofascial Release therapist, I self treat fascial restrictions that I feel within my body with a 4”, inflatable All-Ball before playing a round of eighteen holes of disc golf. Because I made this video very quickly with my iPhone and a tripod, the camera angle was not always the best in the video. I also spliced into the video some of my disc throws from yesterday’s disc golf round, which were so much easier for me after self treating with Myofascial Release beforehand.
Along with reading academic books from different fields of study in my spare time, I also enjoy tinkering with retro gaming consoles. Yesterday, I had a two hour break between Myofascial Release sessions, and so I decided to see if I could inexpensively improve the picture quality of my 1982 Colecovison gaming system on an older, digital TV by first connecting its RF cable to a coaxial cable adaptor and then using an inexpensive, thrift store purchased VCR to convert it to a composite video signal to plug back into the composite video port on the TV.

Melissa and I have been away over the past several days supporting our son, Jack, at the annual National Academy Championship Horse Show in Murfreesboro, Tennessee! We are back home now, and I am back in the office and available for myofascial release sessions. Jack had an extraordinarily amazing run at nationals this year! He placed 1rst and 6th in both of his showmanship and equitation classes on Thursday and was amongst the top eight in each show class to qualify to advance to the semifinal round on Saturday. On Saturday, he placed 3rd and 4th in both of his show classes to be amongst the top six in each class to qualify to advance to the national championship finals on Sunday. On Sunday, Jack finished fourth overall in his equitation class and won the national grand championship in his showmanship class! We are so proud of Jack! I hope you all are doing well, and I look forward to seeing you all again at your next myofascial release session!
Our son qualified at the National Academy Championship Horse Show in Murfreesboro, TN to advance to the semifinal round tomorrow! He also won first place in one of his show classes for the first time ever at nationals! We are so proud of him and everyone competing at our barn!
Yes!!! Charlotte FC won 1 - 0 against Miami! The entire team played great tonight! Kerwin Vargus scored an awesome goal! And our goalkeeper, Kristijan Kahlina, had an incredible diving save at the end of the game that allowed us to hang on to our 1 - 0 lead! The other MLS teams that were tied with us lost, and we were almost in the 8th playoff spot that would have meant our first playoff game would have been in Charlotte. However, the New York Red Bulls won against Nashville tonight with a penalty kick in overtime. So that had us tied in points, but the New York Red Bulls goal differential was -3 and Charlotte’s was -7. So that put New York in 8th place and Charlotte in 9th place clinching the last playoff spot. Charlotte will play its first playoff game next Wednesday against New York at the Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey. Go Charlotte FC!!!
We are fired up and ready for the last Charlotte FC vs Inter Miami CF soccer game of the season! Because we tied our game against Miami in Miami earlier in the week, we need a win tonight to have a chance for the 9th and last playoff spot. If we win and other teams tied with us lose tonight, then we will make the playoffs. We sold the tickets that we got for this game last February a few weeks ago, before the recent announcement was made that Messi would be playing in the game tonight. Jack and I lucked out and got two lower level, Section 130 Row 2 seats for $150 per ticket right when they went up for sale earlier in the week. Nothing is selling anywhere near that low of a price that close to the field! I insisted that Jack and Melissa take those two lower level seats, and I got the last, lowest priced $50 ticket in the upper level directly behind them in Section 540 Row 32. Now there are only 3 tickets left for sale near where I am sitting for $100, $295, and $500. It’s going to be a big crowd tonight, and we are here for the gate opening at 4:30pm to get the free t-shirts given away for fan appreciation night. The game starts later tonight at 6pm. Go Charlotte FC!!!
Having a blast watching the Charlotte FC vs Inter Miami CF soccer game on the Jumbotron at Bank of America Stadium! The playoffs are on the line and we have to win tonight!
Following my last post a few minutes ago, here is a video that my daughter, Rachel, gave me the okay to share of her cantering on Ike today! You can also see our feral barn cat, Scraggy (Aka Scraggs, named after Scooby, Shaggy, and Scrappy-Doo), walking along the top of the fence as Rachel and Ike are cantering.
I hope you all are doing well! I am so excited to have my daughter, Rachel, home this week for college fall break at UNC Chapel Hill. We put a saddle on our retired show horse, Ike (Callaway's Ike the Sixth) today, and Rachel and Ike walked, trotted, and cantered around our pasture. Ike loves carrots and always feel free to bring carrots to give to Ike and our other horse, Gus Gus, at your next myofascial release session. We are all heading to the Bank of America stadium tonight to see the Charlotte FC soccer team play Inter Miami CF in Miami tonight on the jumbotron screen. Tickets are free at the Charlotte FC website and you can get up to four free tickets per person. The doors open at 7pm and the game starts at 8pm this evening. If Charlotte wins tonight in Miami and then wins again against Miami in Charlotte on Saturday, then we will automatically make the playoffs that start towards the end of October. If my understanding is correct, if we lose tonight then we are out of the playoffs. And if we tie the game tonight, then we have to win on Saturday and other teams have to lose for us to make the playoffs. I look forward to seeing you all at your next myofascial release session! Book a session today at soulfulwaters.com!
I hope you all are doing well! My daughter recently texted me this hilarious picture that my wife took of our cat, Poppy (aka Pop Tart), and the following words that describe it perfectly: “mom sent me this of pop tart lurking” So if it feels like your acute or chronic pain is lurking in the background and/or you want to take a preventative approach to health care, then book a myofascial release session today. I look forward to seeing you soon!
I wanted to extend a big thank you to my dear and extraordinarily talented friend, Joe Collins, for helping us take down a dead tree that was at risk of falling on our horse pasture fence. I spliced together two video clips of Joe cutting the tree branches and then filmed him cutting the tree down with a tripod. I have been very busy the past two weeks cutting up the wood with a chain saw and hauling it off with my trailer.
I am in Granite Falls, NC and just picked up three cubes or sixty-three bales of hay at Anderson Farms for our horses. I normally get two cubes, but this time I got three with two cubes loaded sideways and one on top. I typically start stocking up on hay in the fall until I have about 180 bales under the roof behind our barn to get our two horses through winter and early spring. It’s a pretty high load of hay, but I’ve got them strapped down securely with ultra sturdy, ratcheting straps, that I picked up from a military surplus store many years ago. I used to be an eBay power seller many years ago, attended many business liquidation auctions and surplus sales, and quickly learned the art of securely strapping down cargo. It’s going to be a late night unloading all of this hay, but it’s all good and I enjoy the exercise. This diesel Mercedes GL that I traded my Nissan Titan for a while back is very powerful and has a lot of torque. I do not feel like there is any weight at all behind me when towing. However, I have definitely felt the weight of this Mercedes GL’s mechanical service bills which are much higher than servicing the Nissan Titan!
My son, Jack, and I are back for the Charlotte FC vs Philadelphia Union soccer game tonight! We tied our last game against D.C. United. If we win tonight and D.C. United loses against Atlanta, then we should move into a tie for 9th place and the last spot to qualify for the playoffs at the end of October!
I just happened to be filming before tonight’s Charlotte FC soccer game while my wife, Melissa, was dancing and caught Melissa on the jumbo screen!!!
Having a blast at the Charlotte FC vs D.C. United Game! This is a big game and if we win, we should move into a tie for 9th place with the top 9 teams going to the playoffs at the end of the season!
It has been so awesome to have our daughter, Rachel, home from college at UNC Chapel Hill for a few days! We are all out for a fantastic dinner tonight at Masala Mastee in Davidson, NC.
I hope you all are doing well! So I have received several requests to add a Super Nintendo to my collection of vintage 1970/1980's gaming systems in my office waiting room. Nintendo released the original Super Famicom (Family Computer) in Japan in 1990 and remade the Super Famicom as the Super Nintendo for release in North America in 1991. The Super Nintendo, or Super NES or SNES, is close enough in age to my theme of 1970/1980's vintage gaming systems, and so I have just recently purchased a SNES and some SNES game cartridges for my office waiting room. I also just recently ran into a great deal on a 1986 Atari 7800 ProSystem, also called the Atari 7800, to replace my Atari 2600 that is currently in my office waiting room. The Atari 7800 was initially released in 1984 with thirteen games and then production was halted shortly thereafter until 1986. The Atari 7800 followed the release of the original 1970's Atari Video Computer System or Atari VCS, which later came to be known as the Atari 2600, and the Atari 5200 SuperSystem, or Atari 5200. The Atari 7800 is backwards compatible with the Atari 2600 and will play just about every Atari 2600 game along with introducing new games with better graphics. However, the Atari 7800 used the same Television Interface Adaptor chip, or TIA, technology as the Atari 2600, and therefore has much more limited improvements in sound quality. The Atari 7800 is comparable to the Nintendo Entertainment System, or NES. However, Nintendo's Family Computer, known as the Famicom, got to the market faster in 1983 in Japan and was revamped to become the Nintendo Entertainment System, or NES, and released in North America in 1985. The NES would soon overtake the Atari 7800 in market share just as the VHS overtook the Betamax video cassette recorder in the 1970's and 1980's. Only fifty-nine games were released for the Atari 7800 compared to seven hundred and sixteen games released for the NES. Atari 7800 games are more difficult to find and expensive to purchase, but I have so far been able to find a few of the highest rated 7800 games at great prices like Pole Position II, Choplifter, One on One Basketball, Dig Dug, Asteroids, Hat Trick, Mario Bros., Joust, and Dark Chambers (Which inspired the later 1980's arcade game, Gauntlet, which you can play on the NES). Another vintage, 1980's video game system that I have been very interested in purchasing for my office waiting room is the very rare and difficult to find Vectrex that was released in North America in 1982. The Vectrex was the only vector display-based home video game system ever released. It did not have to be connected to a television, and it came combined with a black and white, cathode-ray tube (CRT) monitor. The game cartridges came with a semitransparent, color overlay to place over the monitor. You could even buy 3D glasses and a light pen to sketch onto the monitor display. However, the Vectrex would not withstand the great video game market crash of 1983 and was discontinued towards the beginning of 1984. With that being said, it would be around one thousand dollars for me to purchase a combined lot of a Vectrex video game system, two controllers, and a few Vectrex game cartridges on ebay. And my wife has kindly informed me that I have enough vintage video game systems and video games in my office waiting room : ) . Anyway, long story short, if you are a vintage gaming enthusiast like myself, please plan on arriving a few minutes early before your next myofascial release session to check out some of the latest additions to my vintage video game collection! You can book a myofascial release session at: www.soulfulwaters.com. I look forward to seeing you all at your next myofascial release session!
After a big win against the LA FC on Saturday, Franklin Mock and I are back in the pouring rain cheering on Charlotte FC against Orlando City SC. Both of our families decided to take a rain check on this one : ) .
Melissa and I celebrated our anniversary over the weekend in Maggie Valley, NC. We started the weekend with an incredible breakfast at Joey's Pancake House! Peaches are in season, and Joey's Pancake House has some of the best peaches and peach pancakes that we have ever had for breakfast. Following breakfast, we hiked the Caldwell Fork Trail at Cataloochee in Great Smokey Mountains National Park. It is one of the most beautiful hiking trails that we have ever hiked, the entrance to the trail is just to the left of the Cataloochee campground, and there are several awesome water crossings. Early morning/early evening you will often see elk in the fields near the Cataloochee campground, and there are plenty of other historic buildings nearby to tour as well. We also learned this year that there are synchronous firefly viewings around sunset at Cataloochee around Late-April, Early-May, Mid-May, and June. On the drive back to Maggie Valley after hiking, we passed the Maggie Valley Rock Shop & Gem Mine with a mystical statue of a wizard in front. I could not resist stopping the car to get a picture taken with the wizard! Anyway, don't let your pain stop you from getting out there and living an active and pain-free lifestyle. If you are in pain or seeking to take a preventative approach to health care or had been planning to book another session but life has gotten too busy, then book a myofascial release session today! I look forward to seeing you soon!
As a retro gaming enthusiast, my office waiting room has evolved to include a 1982 Colecovision, a 1982 Atari 2600 Darth Vader Model, and a 1993 NES-101 top loader redesign of the original 1980's Nintendo Entertainment System. Also, I have been building a collection of Colecovision, Atari, and Nintendo games as well. If you are interested in playing vintage video games like Ms. Pac-Man, Frogger, Q-bert, Pitfall, Pong, Breakout, ect., then be sure to stop by a few minutes early for your next myofascial release session! Or if there are any old school video games that you would like for me to add to my office waiting room collection, please let me know, and I will try and find them. I look forward to seeing you all at your next myofascial release session! Book now at soulfulwaters.com!

So I am at Litchfield Beach, SC with my wife, Melissa’s, side of the family celebrating my 50th birthday today! I will celebrate again with my side of the family over the first week of July. Melissa asked me months ago what I wanted to do to celebrate my 50th birthday, and I responded immediately and without any hesitation, “Go to Walt Disney World!” She then asked where I would like to have a birthday dinner at Disney’s Epcot, and I replied, “It doesn’t matter as long as it’s with the Disney characters!” Melissa jokingly replied, “Seriously? A Disney character meal? Everyone in our family has grown up.” And I replied, “But I have not!” I just can’t wait and am counting down the days to my 50th birthday family trip to Walt Disney World later on this summer. Melissa has just informed me that she has made reservations for a Disney character meal birthday dinner, but it’s a surprise as to where it will be! I look forward to seeing you all at future Myofascial Release sessions as I start the next decade of my fifties!
I am heading out thIs morning to Cataloochee campground in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park to camp this weekend with friends. It’s one of the most beautiful campgrounds that I have ever camped at. Early morning/early evening, you can see the elk in the fields and all kinds of wildlife. It’s a several mile drive down a windy dirt and gravel road into the beautiful valley. We will be making a long hike in to Messer’s wall today and to the archaeological remains of what was once Will Messer’s home sometime around the late 19th/early 20th century. There is very little cell reception there, but I will try and post some pictures of the hike.
Go Charlotte FC!!! What an awesome soccer game tonight!!! After being down 0-1, Brandon Cambridge subbed in and scored the first two goals of his MLS career to rally Charlotte FC to a 2 - 1 win!!! Thank you again for the invite from my long time friend, Franklin Mock. Our families’ schedules were too busy for everyone to attend the game tonight, but we will all definitely be tailgating again soon for another soccer game. I have an incredibly busy day tomorrow with my Myofascial Release practice, and it was so awesome to get away for the soccer game tonight!
I hope you all are doing well! I wanted to follow up on my 1/22/2023 post about our feral barn cat, Prince, that I had found seriously injured, underwent surgery, and I had been rehabilitating in our home and treating with myofascial release. Prince has fully recovered, is doing fantastic, and our family has decided to keep him inside as our fourth indoor rescue animal. Prince gets along great with our two dogs, River and Maple, and has become best friends with our cat, Poppy.
A funny story is that we have recently discovered that Poppy loves to play with PEEPS marshmallow candies, as we began to find PEEPS mysteriously disappearing from their original packaging and reappearing in various places all over our house. We finally caught Poppy taking a PEEP marshmallow candy out of the packaging, and a few weeks later my daughter took a picture of Prince with a PEEP! We now believe that Poppy has taught Prince the art of sneaking PEEPS out of their packaging!
I look forward to seeing you all at your next myofascial release session!
I hope you all are doing well! I am now back in Mooresville after an awesome family vacation touring the island of Madeira, Portugal!

Greetings from Soulful Waters Myofascial Release! Hope you all are having a happy new year. I have some sad news that I recently found our feral barn cat, Prince, very seriously injured. After surgery, Prince is going to be okay, and we have turned our master bathroom into a recovery room. I have been in and out through all hours of the night over the past week checking on and caring for Prince, following our veterinarian's post surgery instructions, and treating him regularly with very gentle myofascial release throughout his recovery process. Myofascial release is so very important. I look forward to seeing you all in the new year!

I wanted to express a huge thank you to Hoco Bees for the jar of honey! Our family has really enjoyed it and have been using it with everything. As I am addicted to ice cream, I poured a large amount over strawberry ice cream, and it definitely enhanced the flavor by leaps and bounds! Thanks again! @hoco_bees
Having an awesome week at the Myrtle Beach Myofascial Release Seminars! The energy here has been incredible, and I am so grateful for such a transforming experience with such an amazing group! So many exciting things happening in our family’s lives! We have finished construction of our new garage/office and moved our two horses, Ike and Gus Gus, to our new home pasture. I am so grateful for our builder, Mike Haynes, who did such outstanding construction work. Mike will begin further barn renovations in early July. I am also so grateful for my father-in-law, Ken Clodfelter, for making such a beautiful barn quilt for the front of the new building. Lastly, I am so grateful for John Barnes and his gift of MFR, my family, and my MFR family for giving me the inspiration to dream, the courage to take the financial risk to build in such challenging times, and hope for the future.
Construction of the detached garage/office building has continued at a fast pace! The roof was completed yesterday, and the roof shingles will be installed at the end of this week. My new office will include a client waiting area, myofascial release treatment room, bathroom, and storage room. I am so grateful to my builder and friend, Mike Haynes, his brother Collin, and all of the crew for doing such outstanding construction work. I am also so grateful to John Barnes, who has inspired and transformed my life through his Myofascial Release Approach.
