Shannon Runion

Physical Therapist

Shannon is a Native Texan who grew up in the DFW area but has lived in Central Texas for a number of years. She eventually moved to Boerne in 2014 to be closer to family after the birth of her daughter as her husband is from San Antonio.

She obtained her Masters of Physical Therapy from Texas Woman’s University in 2002 and has additional certifications in Complete Decongestive Therapy and Manual Lymphatic Drainage for the management of lymphedema and The McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy. Her love for John F. Barnes myofascial release began in 2015 after becoming increasingly frustrated with the traditional model of therapy.

Outside of work and family, she enjoys the outdoors, sunshine, and good food.

Amber Drabek

Physical Therapist

Amber is a native Texan, raised in Austin, Texas. She attended Texas Tech Health Sciences and received her Master's in Physical Therapy in 1997.

In the Spring of 2014, she sustained some injuries that led her divinely to receive physical therapy that were solely myofascial treatments. Through her own personal awakenings, she began to develop a love and a passion for John Barnes' myofascial treatment and techniques. In November 2014, she began her adventures into her MFR training. Soon, thereafter, she started to practice solely as a MFR therapist.

Outside of work, Amber enjoys spending time with her family, friends, and her 2 rat terriers ....."Kristopher" and "Grace".
