Letters from Clients
Improvement in Arthritic Condition:
I would like to tell you about Adrianne. She has been my massage therapist for almost three years. Adrianne has an incredible knowledge of the human body. She has helped me with my arthritis is so many ways. A month ago she made the comment that I looked much younger than when I first started coming to her. As I look back on how my body felt then, I realize she is the one who really made the difference. Along with her massage she peppers it with words of wisdom of how else I can contribute in helping my body heal. She has shown me how to do certain exercises while swimming. She is also well versed in weight training, something I must pursue more diligently.
When I am out of town I realize I cannot skip a treatment. If I do, I suffer the consequences. However, I can never replace the benefits I receive from Adrianne with another therapist. Along with the massage I exercise. This, however cannot take the place of Adrianne’s massages. When I first came to her I was racked with pain. I could not raise my arms above my head. She continues to work with this and has made a huge improvement in my range of motion, something my doctor did not seem interested in.
I have not mentioned Adrianne’s sweet spirit which is just another perk of having her in my life. There have been times oer the years when I have come to my session with a heavy heart. Adrianne can sense this. Along with helping my body she has helped me come out of a session renewed in spirit.
I am so thankful to have found Adrianne. I tell everyone I know. Although I don’t know you, I hope you will try Adrianne and see for yourself what a help she can be.
— Norma Heflin, Oro Valley, Arizona
Giving up the cane:
When I first came to Adrianne, I was limping, using a cane and taking strong painkillers. (My doctor thought I had osteoarthritis in one knee.)
In one session, Adrianne had found and started working on an area where muscles had been getting more and more twisted, evidently over a period of years. After several sessions, I could give up the cane, and soon I could cut down and then completely stop the painkillers.
I have continued seeing Adrianne in the two years since that problem was totally eliminated, because the benefits from her treatments have been very important for my overall physical and mental well-being. I have never encountered anyone giving a personal service who was more caring and devoted to healing and helping.
