She specializes in fascia restoration and she is a Certified Postural Neurologist.
She developed her own technique for
fascia restoration called
"The Sajonas Method".
She invented the Theralign Bar,
a patent pending, self fascia release and hydration tool.

Together, we create unprecedented results that bring you back to doing what you love and back to the joy of living."
What is The sajonas method of fascia restoration
The Sajonas Method is a 4 step process developed by Jeanne Sajonas, PT.
We are now discovering that the fascia is its own system,
just like the skeletal system, muscle system, respiratory system,
cardiovascular system, nervous system, etc.
If we view the fascia as it's own system, we can begin to appreciate it's
elegant simplicity and complexity simultaneously.
Healthy fascia is fluid, mobile and flexible.
Injury, immobility, poor posture and inflammation (chronic or acute),
can cause the fascia to get dry.
This dryness can create pain, tightness and movement restrictions to the area affected.
The main function of the fascia is protection and connection.
It is our bodies' cushioning system.
Fascia envelopes us in layers,
each layer defining our parts while protecting it at the same time.
It may all be described as connective tissue, but each layer has a unique function
and needs a different approach in order to get restored.
What are the different fascia Layers?
1. The subcutaneous layer or the superficial fascia layer is dense, thick and cushiony.
This is the fascia immediately under the skin. Imagine this layer like a sponge.
Just like a sponge, it can get dry and get brittle.
This layer needs hydration to function well.
2. The Intermediate layer is the covering of the muscle itself.
This is the myofascia layer.
Imagine a sausage, the casing holding the meat is the fascia
and the sausage is the muscle.
We can identify each muscle because each muscle has its own fascia covering.
In order to function well, each muscle has to be able to shorten and lengthen
within its own fascial sheath to generate force.
Each muscle also needs to be able to glide against the surfaces it is adjacent to.
3. The deep layer is where the muscle attaches to the bone
or against another muscle.
The muscle attached to the bone needs to be able to freely glide.
Each layer has to be addressed differently as each layer has its own unique structure and need.
The Sajonas Method creates immediate, lasting pain relief
because of this approach to the fascia sytem.
Step 1: Hydrate the Subcutaneous/Superficial Fascia layer.
Step 2: Glide and move the Muscle Fascia Layer(outside the muscle)
Step 3: Find and release the restrictions, adhesions and scarring
within the muscle layer, a technique called Targeted Myofascia Release
Step 4: Lengthen and maintain tissue fluidity through 3 dimensional stretching.
If you have pain even after surgery, rehab, massage or adjustments,
you may have fascia that is bound up that needs to be restored.
Fascial restrictions can cause chronic pain if it is not properly addressed.
The Sajonas Method
- addresses the fascial restrictions in each layer
- restore proper joint mobility and alignment
-restores muscle strength and
proper muscle recruitment and contraction
-activates the parasympathetic nervous system
to induce deep relaxation and promote healing.

What is Postural Neurology?
Maybe it's not as simple as
postural Neurology explained
Posture is defined as the position in which someone holds their body in space while standing or sitting. You may have often heard "stand/sit up straight."
Healthy, erect posture actually depends on a lot of factors and perhaps not as simple as standing up straight.
Good posture requires good input AND output
1. Eyes or Visual System
2. Spine for feedback and movement
3. Ankle joints for stability and feedback
4. Inner ear or Vestibular System
5. Cerebellum for balance
6. Frontal cortex for muscular strength.
Postural correction is complex and all of the above system needs to be addressed to produce results.
As a Certified Postural Neurologist,
Jeanne Sajonas, PT examines and provides brain based, targeted correction to the whole system to create immediate and lasting results.
