FERY DOES NOT PROVIDE PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION OR INJECTIONS.
FERY IS A LICENSED MASSAGE THERAPIST. SHE IS NOT A MEDICAL DOCTOR.
Fery Roder has been practicing Deep Muscle therapy for over 30 years. The technique is a form of massage therapy also known as deep tissue massage.
Deep muscle therapy/deep tissue massage offers an
alternative to common pain management treatments that may have
undesirable results. For example, prescription medications can cause
adverse side effects (and only mask the pain) and may cause addiction.
Surgeries may ultimately prove ineffective and cause additional
problems, let alone being invasive, expensive and usually requiring long
Recovery from injuries (e.g. whiplash, falls, sports injury)
Pain of the head, neck and back (chronic and otherwise).
Muscle tension and spasms
Repetitive strain injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
High blood pressure (circulation)
Plantar Fasciitis (painful inflammation of the foot)
Deep muscle therapy, or deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on
manipulating and realigning deep layers of muscles and connective tissue, getting to the underlying cause of pain.
Deep muscle therapy is non-invasive (non-surgical) so does not require long recovery periods. It does not require
any blood tests and complex equipment, just a massage table and Fery's
talented, experienced hands.
Deep muscle therapy is a slow, intense form of massage that requires a lot of pressure at times. This may cause some discomfort and even pain. However, if pain does occur, Fery can always use a gentler approach.
Deep muscle therapy is intended only for the relief and
management of specific pain. It is not intended for relaxation or pleasure (though pain
relief can definitely be relaxing and pleasurable).
Deep muscle therapy tends to be a progressive process that
takes regular sessions over time to fully relieve and manage pain,
depending on the condition. However if the pain is not chronic relief can occur quickly, perhaps in one session.
Fery studied at Rudolph Steiner's premier school for Anthroposophy, The Goetheanum, in Dornach
Switzerland in the early 1970's.
At the Goetheanum Fery majored in
special education, initially practicing deep muscle therapy primarily
on individuals with mental and physical disabilities, in Switzerland
and here in the States.
By the early 1980's Fery was treating an increasing number of patients, privately and at the
practice of Dr. Henry N. Williams in Lancaster Pa. Dr. Williams was
(now retired) a practitioner of modern and homeopathic medicine.
In 1997 Fery joined a clinic of fellow practitioners at the Media Wellness Center in Media Pennsylvania.
In January of 2011, Fery realized her career-long dream and opened her own practice.

Eurythmy is a kind of dance therapy that helps to ease and manage specific ailments and pain.
Eurythmy is made up of easy to perform steps or movements (you don't need to be a good dancer, athlete, or even flexible). The steps are also easy to remember because each corresponds with and resembles a letter of our alphabet.
Eurythmy is also practiced simply as an expressive art form, similar to ballet.
Eurythmy is an essential part of Anthroposophy and is taught at Waldorf schools.
Fery's nutritional remedy class teaches how to prevent, treat and manage specific illnesses by eating, and not eating the right foods.
Fery's approach is based on the Anthroposophic and old world belief that food and illness can be categorized into warm and cold elements. Foods that are in the category of warm element are effective in treating illnesses are in the category of cold element and vice versa.
For example, a sore throat is in the category of warm element, so eating cucumbers, which are in the category of cold element will help soothe the pain.
