I was urged to visit Kathleen by a medical expert I thoroughly respect – The phone call was made that afternoon.
I came to Kathleen with the goal of expanding my knowledge of posture, alignment, self myofascial release and facial lines. Little did I know that my body would be the subject of dissection and evolution. Thank goodness this was the case: I have learned more about my movement patterns and how to adjust them to optimize my physical potential than I ever expected. As a wonderful aside, I come away with a new tool each time I visit Kathleen that I can utilize in my own practice as a Personal Trainer.
Kathleen is one of the most valuable resources I have come by in the mind/body realm – I couldn’t recommend her enough.
I am a physician and around 7-8 yrs ago I herniated a disc in my lower back skiing. I tried everything including physio, massage, personal trainers and prolotherapy, all with some degree of success. But I was still left with a lot of pain and tightness in my muscles and my experts felt it was myofascial pain. I saw Kathleen to do Therapeutic Ball and she taught me how to roll on various balls to release muscle tension and pain mainly in my lower back, buttocks and legs.
Recently I saw her again to do upper body and feet. She has an incredible knowledge base and is passionate about what she does. For those of us with busy lives she provides a way to treat ourselves at home, releasing the days tension and pain on our own time. Therapeutic ball has given me a sense of control over my own pain and hope in knowing that I can control it myself.
I was recommended to start Pilates as a way to stabilize a low back condition, which I have been dealing with for years. Since our first session, I have been extremely thankful for the care, knowledge, understanding and professionalism displayed by Kathleen in her practice. She has taken the time to research my back condition and really understand how to incorporate the right movements to help me manage the instability, reduce/eliminate the pain and make me stronger and healthier.
She has also helped me regain range of motion and strength in my left shoulder after a major surgery to repair a torn labrum. I can’t recommend her enough to folks that are trying to restore their core strength and flexibility.
Kathleen is my rock ! She truly cares about your entire well being. She has helped me for the past nine years deal with back, hip, shoulder and personal issues. With her , I can at 62 enjoy traveling, hiking ,kayaking, golfing and even water skiing. She is my blessing.
