I was coming to the end of my rope with a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia. Since our weekly/bi-weekly sessions began I have begun to see vast improvements in both my chronic pain, energy output, and overall outlook on life. It has been an overwhelmingly positive and restorative experience and I cannot recommend Elaine enough to anyone who is looking for help with their pain symptoms or even just stress management.

Testimonials

I had lower back pain for many years. I am an avid rower and have found through various injuries and getting older, that the back pain was interrupting my daily life. I couldn’t sleep, couldn’t walk longer than 30 minutes without having to sit down, and felt helpless. I had tried going to a chiropractor, massage therapist, and physical therapist. All would give some temporary relief, but it wasn’t sustainable. Since working with Elaine, I have been sleeping better, rowing with out feeling like I’ll pull my back out, and actively being engaged into my well being than I had ever understood before. Sometimes we just cannot see the obvious; it takes someone like Elaine who can give us a different perspective and therefore part of our life back.

My lower back has been a reoccurring issue for nearly 20 years, the cycle from good health to poor is usually attributable as mentioned to workloads. Elaine was great to talk too, she did not take a viewpoint as others have in the past of “well you need to block out at least 3 X 1 hour sessions a week”, instead she listened to how my life is, and helped me realize that a custom plan could fit into my life utilizing short windows of time and adding more in when I had the space to do so. She is conscientious, thoughtful, a great listener, and a natural advisor and coach!
