What does personal well being mean to you? What are your goals to achieve your optimal state of well being? To help my clients attain their respective goals and achieve outstanding results, I implement a holistic approach: physical, mental, and spiritual.
As a deep student of my craft, I am passionate about learning the latest techniques and modalities and incorporating these methods on a personal level for each client. Each session is personalized to take into consideration the very unique nature of well being. No session is ever the same; I keep things fun, effective and interesting.
A 55-year old Fortune 100 executive contacted me after his doctor said his lifestyle was killing him: he was overweight, smoking two packs a day, hypertensive, and had high cholesterol. We evaluated his negative lifestyle choices and integrated progressively challenging lifestyle changes (baby steps). Using diet, mindfulness based stress reduction, visualization, and exercises he enjoyed, he lost sixty pounds, stopped smoking, normalized his cholesterol and blood pressure, and is now living a happier, healthier and less-stressful life.
A recently-divorced woman wanted to enter the dating scene but felt she was not as attractive as she had been when she was years younger. Having spent many years neglective her well being to care for her family she now found herself ready to take on this new challenge. We worked together to create a lifestyle plan that resulted in her losing 25 pounds by reducing her alcohol consumption and making wiser food choices. We also worked on increasing her strength, flexibility and mobility, which translated to a reduction in chronic back issues.
I helped another woman lose 20 pounds in the 8 weeks prior to her wedding—and she kept off 15 pounds (and still fits in the dress!).
I help you look and feel better
A 50 year old mother, social activist, philanthropist and eternal optimist was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer and underwent multiple aggressive treatment modalities. Together, we addressed the symptoms of her treatments and the lifestyle issues that would adversely impact her recovery by strengthening her body and mind to adapt to her changing body and the side effects of her treatment. Happily, she is presently cancer free and on a path to sustainable self-care and wellness.
A 56-year old, who was neither athletic nor coordinated, wanted to play respectably on a recreational volleyball team. I guided him in packing on 20 pounds of muscle, while enhancing his flexibility (through TheStretchRx) power, and coordination. He now plays on two teams and has a mean spike.
I help you enjoy competition
I can help you
A 45 year old executive and former college golfer was complaining of back pain and limited mobility brought on by countless hours behind a desk and seemingly endless cross country business travel. His previously “scratch” golf game had diminished as had his confidence on the course and in the office. We implemented a functional training regimen focusing on mobility and flexibility. His workouts were 50% HIIT and 50% StretchRx and he is now pain free and golfing on par.
I led “Mom Boot Camp” when my daughter was in elementary school. The moms wanted a healthy and social alternative to sipping coffee and nibbling snacks while waiting for school to finish. They all found their inner competitor and had fun in the process.
Just for fun
I assist you in improving daily function
A 76 year old woman came to me following hip replacement surgery and months of physical therapy. She was still experiencing post-rehab limitations that prohibited her from doing some of the things that she loved, like dancing and hiking. A friend told her about my StretchRx program and after 2 months of the program, which included assisted stretching, myofascial release techniques and vibrational massage using the Hypervolt, she is back to weekly dancing and long walks in the woods.
