General Testimonials 2
Just got home from work and I had a client who plays piano and sings for a living. She said her neck, shoulders, back, and arms were pretty sore, so I explained about MFR, what we could do and how the session would run.
She said great so we started the work. As I started working she commented on how great the work started to feel so I explained how I had taken a class this past weekendand was implementing some of what I learned.
When I got to her hands and fingers, I had her wiggle them before we worked to see how they felt and then again after the work, she couldn't believe how good they felt.She started laughing and said that she does that when she gets really relaxed. I also did the neck traction, which I nailed on the first shot and she was estatic about it!
During the session I was explaining about my experience with the rib cage and abdominal work and how much better I could breath and how open I felt. She immediately asked if we could do that work in the next session cause she was defintely coming back to me.
The cool part about this is I only had one booking for the day, I was getting ready to leave when I was asked if I would stay and work on a member that had just walked in hoping for an appt. I said sure.
When I checked in with her the second time about the work and to make sure the pressure was ok she said that the universe must have brought us together cause the work felt so great and couldn't believe how good she was starting to feel. She also explained that she was going to only do a half hour session but decided on and hour and was glad she did that. She asked if I did 90 mins also.
When she came out of session she was laughing and said how great she felt (loose, open, better ROM) and that I did awesome work and was gonna try and book an appt with me next Monday.
I just wanted to thank you for a great class, and the experience I will gain with each massage will be priceless! I also texted your TA right away and let her know. I told her I felt like busting out of my skin I was so excited! She was very proud and excited for me! You guys both ROCK and I wanted to thank you so much for the new tool!
Hoping part 2 works out in Oct, and will hopefully have great new experiences to share! Thanks again!
Thank you for sharing your knowledge and enthusiasm with us last weekend. I must honestly say that this was the best workshop I have ever attended and the information that I gained has already been put to use helping manage the pain in my clients. I am so excited to have a pallat of new strokes and techniques to utilize daily.
Count me in for Part II, the lower body April 20-23. I cannot imagine anything that would keep me away from that workshop. Thank you for listening to our requests to move the date up as I too did not want to wait until next fall to learn this valuable information.
Please do enjoy your holiday season and wishing you and your family a joyous and prosperous new year.
Namaste and Regards,
Having been in practice for ten years I have taken many classes to improve and advance my work over the years. Howard's Myofascial class is an absolute inspiration for any Massage Therapist who is looking to advance their work.
I have experienced wonderful results in clients with postural problems such as kyphosis, chronic low back and neck tension and restricted range of motion. If you are looking for a technique to make a difference in your bodywork take this class.
I wanted to thank you for being such a good friend and mentor for the past ten years. When I took your course back in 2001 I had no idea what a positive impact it would have on my career. rom the most basic principle (think globally and you'll get everything) to the advanced techniques you teach, I have used something I learned from you in every massage I've given since taking your course. That's literally thousands of massages.
I am now working at a very prestigious social club in Boston, MA. There is no question in my mind that the skills I have developed while using your teachings opened the doors to this wonderful opportunity. I was referred to the club by a client whose low back pain went away after I applied your teachings during his massage.
Thanks again, for everything
I have some awesome stories!! I hosted a wellness Clinic at my place of employment and gave demos on myofascial release. I had two clients sign up that night and they have already seen me 3 times each.
One client called two days later to say that the numbing in her arm had disappeared completely for 24 hours. She had had that numbness for over a year! The other client had shoulder issues and she has since not felt any pain. I also have a client with MS and he is absolutely in love with the work. He is having less pain.
Another Client who is a LMT had not had such a release in her upper body for years....and she was seeing an acupuncturist for a year or so. So I am very excited to offer more of this work as it has proven to work immediately and also has brought me great success financially. I love educating my clients with new and different ideas about looking at pain.
WHAT A BLAST - Thank you, Howard, for another unbelievably positive experience at this weekend's Myofascial Release Massage Part 2 workshop. While I've already worked for years as a successful fascial practitioner, I continue to expand my understanding and hone my skills because of your training.
You are a gifted and generous teacher on many levels; it is a pleasure to be in your classes. I continue to admire your clarity and openness. Really, I'm blown away by the apparent ease with which you run such a well-orchestrated workshop. And your manuals are excellent! (I would expect to pay additional for the quality of teaching materials that you include in the tuition price.)
Well, I awaited Part 2 with great anticipation, and my expectations were far exceeded. So my enthusiasm about Myofascial Release Massage continues to grow, and now I'm eager for Part 3.
With respect and gratitude,
First and foremost I want to thank you so very much for an absolutely amazing weekend. I walked away from the weekend absolutely energized and full of excitement. Many aspects you covered touched my life in so many ways. I'm only sad because I have to wait until September for Part II.
I started some of the work on Monday....and below is the email I received from my client the very next morning. I have to admit I haven't received an email like this in quite some time! I know I did the work, but you gave me the tools and for that I am so very thankful. I wish I could do more to show you my appreciation. I'm so excited to grow with these techniques, but even more excited to help more and more people who are in pain.I look forward to seeing you again in September!
With much appreciation...
Thank you so much Howard for sharing your talents and instruction. I' ve been using the Myofascial Release techniques I learned since the first class with dramatic and remarkable results. Furthermore, these techniques haved shaped my approach to bodywork and I recommend other collegues to add this knowlege as a valuable asset.
More than a few people have come to a session with little to no range of motion in the head and neck. One in particular had to be driven to the massage center because of their inability to move their head.
Through use of the myofascial release strokes from the first class pertaining to the upperbody, I was able to facillitate significant changes which allowed the client to walk away from the session with complete range of motion in the cervical spine!
One of the clients I've worked with asked me to focus on an ankle sprain he had for over 40 years and it had always given him mild discomfort, especially taking stairs. Before our 4th session the client thanked me saying I had "saved him thousands of dollars in medical bills!" He had planned to have foot surgery before moving for retirement. After a week of pain free movement he no longer felt surgery was required.
I'm happy to say these type of stories have become more of a constant reality for me. Thank you so much Howard. Hope to see you in January.
Good Morning Howard,
I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know how excited I've been all week to be able to use the myofacial release techniques starting with my first client Monday morning. I love the way you teach. I felt confident when I left on Sunday that I not only knew how to use these techniques but why and what they could do for my clients.
Thanks so much Howard. I look forward to seeing you in December.
