The following testimonials are from a sample of my clients.
- Chronic pain relief
With receiving regular bodywork and learning self-stretch routines, I no longer have those mornings where it hurts too much to get out of bed.
- Frozen Shoulder
For two years my shoulder was frozen. I couldn't comb my hair, use roll-on-deodorant much less reach for anything on a shelf above my chest. I had constant aching and throbbing as well as trouble sleeping as it was difficult to get into a comfortable position. I had gone to physical therapists who assigned stretching and exercise routines which just increased the pain without increasing the mobility. After two bodywork sessions, the throbbing was gone, I could sleep without pain and I could use roll-on-deodorant. After 3 sessions I could comb my hair again. After 6 sessions I had sufficient range of motion and continued my healing without additional bodywork.
- Rehabilitation - major accident - scar release
After a major accident, multiple surgeries, one year of therapy with 6 different physical therapists, my shoulder was still frozen. It took only 9 sessions to regain functional use of my shoulder. Later, after a the third surgery on my hip, the healed surgical scar was painful to the slightest touch, my range of motion was restricted and I was in constant back pain. After myofascial release sessions with Sharon the scar was no longer painful and mobility gradually increased.
My dentist was amazed. After one session of bodywork my jaw pain was gone. It had been so bad that I couldn't open my mouth to eat without sharp pains. My dentist was going to fit me with a new mouthguard. Sharon did myofascial release on my head, jaw and neck and the pain was gone. The clicking was gone. I could open my mouth with no trouble. Occasionally it will start to get tight again, and before it gets to the point where I can't open my mouth, Sharon will work on my jaw and head and all is well.
- Aikido - falling - back pain
I train in aikido which means that I roll and fall constantly. My body takes a real beating sometimes. I was in a lot of pain and Sharon worked on me before class. In a very short time she straightened out my hips and sacrum and the pain was virtually gone. My rolling movements were far more relaxed and I felt entirely better after class. On another occasion Sharon used the myofascial release techniques to help me with lower back pain. I could feel my limbs stretch and at times become utterly weightless. The next day I felt much greater ease of movement.
- Neck pain
Normally, the day after a massage my neck begins to hurt again. After Sharon worked on my neck, back and shoulders my neck didn't hurt the next day at all.
