I can hardly believe the tremendous improvement I’ve been feeling in my hip since my sessions with you. After my recent diagnosis of spinal stenosis and osteoporosis, I thought I was doomed to a life of pain with every step, with getting in and out of a car or standing up from a seated position. Even turning over in bed at night was miserable. The thought of traveling, touring or entertaining at home was over for me –until I got under your gentle but powerful healing hands –along with informative, anatomical explanations of the various therapies you applied.
I feel like my life may be a normal one once more, and I owe it all to you- and your constant encouragement to do those darn stretching exercises at home! “A Million Thanks to you for all you've done”just doesn’t say enough. I’ll remember you with great appreciation and fondest memories.
