The Revolutionary Therapy for Pain Management


Relief & Freedom of Movement from the Very FIRST Therapy

Thanks Yami, who taught me to be aware of my body, the importance of hydration, therapeutic baths and stretching. Before, I could not bear the pain in my body and now I have learned to handle it with greater positivity, to try to put it in the background, follow up at home and prioritize my health over everything else.

It has been a gradual process, but effective, because one should not take health for granted. Not only has Yami shown me a new way, but her life partner JJ, who has directed me, as a health coach, to raise awareness about my food, about those foods that really help me and about which foods can hurt me. This, after going through a huge scare that indicated that I was likely to have cancer in the gut. That possibility was gravely frightening, for God listened to my prayers, granted me a miracle, and allowed me to have two angels who directed me to once again prioritize the Well-being of my life, of course, without leaving out the great support of my family. I’m still on the path to achieving wellness, ever seeing the goal closer, lessening pain, learning to be conscious, live with awareness and importance of caring for our temple here on Earth. Thank you my great friend Yami, continue with this beautiful project in which I know that you have not only helped me, but many, who have been unable to prioritize our health. Ahhh and we have a way to go. Thank you JJ, for your beautiful advice, teaching me the importance of breathing, of good eating and of taking back what I enjoy doing in life. I have learned more with you on this path. If there is one thing that has made me clear both in an organic way is that Welfare is in our hands, but it really comes into effect only if we do our part. Keep counting on me!

Pain Management Therapy

Myofascial Release

 Changed My Life


Now is the time to Change Yours

Today I would like to share with you what I believe has been the most impressive health experience I have had in my recent life. Through the networks I learned about Yami and her relaxation therapy and myofascial conditioning. This came at a perfect time because between the exercises I do and the natural changes of the musculoskeletal system, I needed some kind of help. It made a lot of sense to me because as a doctor I know the important role of the fascia in muscles functioning and how they are affected. I decided to undergo a session. The experience was unique, not only for its effectiveness but for the relaxing nature of the whole process, not traumatic at all. From the first session you feel profound changes that eliminate pain and increase your performance and well-being. Since then, I try to receive them once a month and it has become the cornerstone of my muscle conditioning. I recommend all people who have an active lifestyle or who undergo any type of exercise, regardless of your age, to try this method that I consider extremely effective and relaxing like no other.

What is Myofascial Release?

Myofascial Release (MFR) is a safe and effective therapy for pain management in which the specialist uses her hands as a therapeutic tool.

By using firm and sustained pressure, without using oils, creams or other tools, an effect is created on the fascia (or connective tissue) that allows areas where there is inflammation, pain or restriction of movement to decompress and become pain free. This firm pressure is sustained in the affected area for three to five minutes. This time is crucial to achieving the piezoelectricity effect. Piezoelectricity is a process in the body that allows the connective tissue that is attached to muscles and nerves return to its natural state, gelatinous. As a result, it relieves pain, reduces inflammation and promotes freedom of movement. Restrictions caused by unhealthy fascia produces pain, inflammation, lack of movement in the area, tingling and sensation of localized heat or cold. This can cause the fascia in muscles and bones to receive pressure equivalent to 2000 pounds per square inch. This therapy is excellent for treating back, neck, shoulder, or any other type of pain. MFR also helps trauma, falls, muscle spasm, sports injuries, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel, postoperative recovery, sciatic nerve problems, herniated discs, stress and sleeping problems.

 How Effective is MFR?

 How Effective is MFR?

I began to use the MFR techniques I learned on my own body. Then I began using it with my clients. They kept asking “What did you do that I feel so much relief?” As the response of my clients began to grow, I began to rely more and more on MFR. It is now the main technique I use in pain management. This method has revolutionized my practice and my personal life. This incredible therapy has changed me for tremendous well being. I have traveled through several cities of the United States to learn the technique from the hands of its creator, John F. Barnes. He is a revolutionary pain management specialist and has helped thousands of people with their innovative techniques that I have brought to Puerto Rico. I started as a massage therapist, but after studying MFR in San Francisco, California, my life changed radically.

Amazing Relief in 90 Minutes

Amazing Relief in 90 Minutes

Stretches, compressions, vibrations, rotations and massage are used to promote pain relief in the shortest possible time. Although the effect of therapy is at the level of deep tissue, it is very relaxing and is not aggressive to the body. This program takes care of your physical, emotional and spiritual health. My goal is to help you discover that a lifestyle with health, vitality and freedom is possible. In each session you can integrate the use of essential oils and localized therapeutic massage as part of the therapy. At the end of the session we will teach you a follow-up routine to take home. If you follow the instructions carefully, the effect of the therapy is long-lasting and you will become less dependent on treatments. You will feel relief from the very first session.

It is a pleasure to visit Yami. From human warmth, great knowledge, as well as the massages designed according to the client’s needs, make her stand out. Her use of aromatherapy leaves you ultra relaxed while helping with muscle aches. I recommend it to everyone!

MFR Programs
MFR Programs
We will work together. The program can be a collection of 6, 10, or 14 therapies. I usually recommend 6 therapies. If at that time you achieve a considerable improvement, then we will move to maintenance therapy that can be twice a month or monthly. Also, we will discuss your lifestyle, your eating habits, sleep, etc. Small things can make a big difference in how quickly you can feel relief. Clients may feel better after 6 therapies or realize their pain has not yet disappeared completelyand they want to keep going. It is then we can move to 10 or 14 therapies. Your recovery is a joint effort. We start with the therapies, assign daily maintenance exercises and perhaps a therapeutic bath or essential oil blends to reduce inflammation and pain. We will work together for your health and well-being. You are unique and therefore will receive personalized treatments.

Revitalize your Body. Relax your Mind. Energize your Spirit.

Two years ago I had my first appointment with Yami to treat my back pain and I have to say that from that moment everything changed. Before arriving to Yami I had taken many pills and other therapies but none of them managed to have the relief I felt with Yami. Her knowledge, professionalism and disposition have given me such confidence that at the moment, I have been attending my therapies for two years with the certainty that I will always feel better. I have seen so many benefits with this therapy that, when someone tells me they are in pain, I recommend Yami immediately!

Simply a success!


What is Therapeutic Massage?

What is Therapeutic Massage?

Many people benefit greatly from  Myofascial Release. However, there are other techniques like Therapeutic Massage to relieve the pain caused by daily living.

First we will talk to find out what your needs are, what you are feeling and your expectations of the therapy. Depending on your health condition and how you feel, we will choose what is exactly right for you. The therapeutic massage can include, but is not limited to: manipulations, stretching, reflexology, acupressure, craniosacral therapy, use of essential oils. In short, everything your body needs so that after 90 minutes you will feel revitalized. I am a strong believer in therapeutic massage. Due to my active lifestyle: giving 4 or 5 therapies per day, or teaching salsa classes in the evening , my body also needs a Therapeutic Massage. It relieves me of the aches & pains and allows me to have a restful sleep so that I wake up renewed and ready for a new day.

Stressed Out? Combat Stress Naturally.

An interesting aspect of this therapy is the famous “dolor rico” or “therapeutic pain.” It is that pain you feel that hurts but at the same time you feel pleasant and relief. You know that feeling when someone is rubbing your shoulders. Great Relief! The relief you feel is so great that it is irresistible not to take a nap for several minutes during the massage. That momentary disconnection is important because those minutes are the beginning of the body activating its mechanisms to heal itself and that happens through natural sleep, not the one created by drugs.

When I go to a licensed therapist for a massage I always ask that they use 100% therapeutic grade essential oils so that their anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic and relaxing properties make me feel revitalized and full of energy. That is why I only use DoTerra, 100% therapeutic grade essential oils.

Therapeutic massage… 

  • Activates the circulatory system, which carries blood, rich in oxygen & nutrients… to muscles & tissues
  • Stimulates the lymphatic system, which allows to clean the impurities that run through your body
  • Provides Pain Relief
  • Reduces Stress
  • Reduces Inflammation
  • Provides Better Sleep

This type of therapy is recommended twice a month or monthly to keep the body in optimal condition. I came to know about pain management therapy through therapeutic massage. That’s why it’s so precious to me. Even in MFR therapies I always end up with 15 or 20 minutes of therapeutic massage because I am a believer in its benefits to the body, mind & spirit. My love for therapeutic massage led me to search for different techniques of structural therapy. I traveled to Chiang Mai, Thailand in 2011 and became certified in traditional Thai massage. Two years later that curiosity took me to Oahu Hawaii, where I became certified in Lomi-Lomi. And a year later I traveled to San Francisco, California, where I studied Myofascial Release, the revolutionary John F. Barnes technique for pain management that changed my life. All this was possible thanks to the therapeutic massage. I invite you to know more about other therapies we offer: Lomi-Lomi (Hawaiian Massage), Thai Massage & Sports Massage.

Magnificent! It's a healing therapy! Relaxing and healing.

You may have some questions related to treatments, therapies, length of session and other topics. Here you can find the most frequently asked questions that people have before the first consultation.

How different is Benestare therapy from other types of treatment?

Each therapy is focused on the specific needs of the client. A small interview is conducted before the therapy to know the reason for the visit. After the evaluation is done, I will identify problem areas as the therapies progress. I will always work with the client in order to discover the best treatment options to achieve prompt recovery

How is the cost of therapies justified?

The resources used in each therapy are diverse, with the purpose of providing relief AND reaching the optimum state of health of each client. We want to make the effects of the therapies last. For this, several disciplines, use of equipment and products are executed, in an exclusive time for each person, which results in a holistic treatment… unique for each client.

How are therapies? What does it consist on?

Before the initail therapy, a short interview is conducted to know the reason for the client’s visit, such as lifestyle and other important details that can shed light to know more about the symptoms. Then a structural evaluation is performed to know where there is restriction of fascia or limitation of movement. During the therapy,  I will use the best discipline that treats the pain or other symptoms of the client. This includes, but is not limited to:  structural work, mobilization of connective tissue, massage, aromatherapy, acupressure, stretching, products. Everything that is necessary for a gentle therapy. We want to allow the body to slowly reach its optimum state of health. After each therapy, I will offers a series of recommendations that the client can follow at home, as part of the continuity of treatment.


How do I know which therapy benefits me the most?

The initial conversation with the therapist is very important to know the reason for the visit. Based on these criteria the therapist develops a plan that benefits and meets the requirements of the client.


Do I need a medical referral in order to receive the therapies?

No medical referral is needed. Sometimes clients bring the results of medical tests so that the therapist has more knowledge of the client’s health condition, which is often an excellent reference. At present, the medical community knows the benefits of alternative therapies to improve health and recommend them.

Are there any contraindications to the therapies?

Pregnant women can receive therapies from the fourth month of gestation. Hypertensive and diabetics should take their medication before the session so they can receive therapy without any concern. People who have suffered a stroke, brain tumor or thrombosis must have medical authorization to receive therapy.

How long do the therapies last?

The therapies last 90 minutes. It is recommended that each client arrive at least 10 minutes early in order to make the most of the time for their appointment. Each program length depends on the client’s condition. Each program can last 6, 10 or 14 sessions (once a week) and after that…  maintenance is a great way to keep your body in optimum health… either twice a month or monthly.

Are therapies painful?

Sometimes therapies or structural work can create some discomfort that can last from 24 to 48 hours.

This is known as a ‘Healing Process.” We want to create a positive “chaos” that allows the body to stimulate. This activate its mechanisms of self-healing.

Why do you measure me before a therapy?

Before the initial therapy, a posture analysis is performed. This allows the therapist to assess whether there is any structural discrepancy that can lead to a problem in another area of ​​the body. Everything is connected!

For example, if one hip is detected higher than the other, this causes an unevenness in the knees, shoulders, neck and head because the body needs to compensate for the unevenness of the hip in other parts of the body. This evaluation allows us to know the technique or techniques necessary to help the body regain its normal posture.

Do you accept medical plans?

Medical plans are not accepted. Payment must be in Cash, ATH Móvil, PayPal or Check.
