The C-Section Recovery Center


John James, LMT, and Lauren Cato Robertson, MS, LMT, BCTMB

C-Section Recovery Center (CSRC) is the first and only massage therapy clinic of its kind, specializing in the relief of chronic pain and dysfunction for women that have experienced a C-section birth.

CSRC’s approach comprises a team of seasoned therapists using a hybrid of manual therapy techniques acquired through decades of education and training, incorporating specific practices and distinctions unique to the practice into their work. By facilitating the body’s natural healing processes via tools including customized breathing homework and advanced bodywork, they aid the body in coping with the effects of a C-section. CSRC focuses on what is correctable, such as how someone breathes or moves, rather than relying on the accuracy of symptoms alone, helping their clients achieve lasting improvements.

By treating the root of the problem, whether that’s the c-section itself or an existing problem that has been amplified by the C-section, CSRC is dedicated to helping women and their entire families live happier, healthier lives.

John James, LMT, and Lauren Cato Robertson, MS, LMT, BCTMB, are the founders of the C-Section Recovery Center, located at 3400 Silverstone Dr., Ste. 119, in Plano TX. For appointments, call 972-612-3399. For more information, visit


The Best Of Local Healthy Living Providers - Dr. Deborah Z. Bain, FAAP, ABIHM, IFMCP - Natural Awakenings North Texas - Dallas - Fort Worth Metroplex North

A board-certified pediatrician for more than 20 years, Dr. Deborah Bain now practices functional, integrative pediatric medicine. She says, “In medical school, we were taught to diagnose and treat with medications, surgeries, therapies, etc. This approach is a ‘a pill for every ill’ style of managing the disease state, it is not focused on prevention or restoring health.”

Bain says, “After my own health battles, including nine neck and back surgeries, plus breast cancer in my 30s, I sought out additional, alternative training. I knew that if I could get well after cancer by paying attention to nutrients, detoxification and diet, then I could also reverse some of the most chronic diseases in childhood without the use of medications.”

She states, “The body gives warning signs way before disease can be diagnosed. Unfortunately, once things have progressed to a state where it is able to be diagnosed, it is often it is too late to reverse all the damage. The disease did not just appear. It came as a result of a predictable pattern of breakdown with a predictable outcome. So, rather than focus on managing sickness through prescribed protocols, I take the integrative approach that gets to the root of the problem before vague symptoms become a disease state.”
