My body doesn't hurt anymore. My headaches are gone; so is the
neck pain, low back pain and the daily shoulder pain. The tightness in my chest
is gone and I can take deep breaths. I'm physically stronger.
I can do more than I've ever been able to do, for longer. I sleep
better and I look much better.
almost constant pain in my arms and right leg (diagnosed as
Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy with Reynauds). And I've
negative, humdrum, unhealthy and "doomed."
I have a recurring pinched nerve in my upper back that radiates pain
down my arm. This Bodywork does more, in less time, than any other
treatment I've tried, including massage, physical therapy,
hydrotherapy, TENS unit for pain, range of motion therapy and
biofeedback. And the pain stays away a lot longer, too.
Mr PA, Auto Mechanic, Severe Motorcycle Accident Victim, age 34
From 3 hours of Bodywork and “Structural Stretching,” the most
significant result was that my TMJ is much better. Before,
pressing around in front of the ear would always hurt a lot. In fact, all
the area was excruciating when I pressed with even the slightest touch.
Now, only a couple of spots are “slightly” sensitive. From this
Bodywork, I also sleep very deep, much better than before.
I had a lot of trouble in just everyday life, getting pain in both shoulders and both sides of the pelvis, affecting me significantly
while doing even simple things such as walking and standing. I was also
frustrated because I could no longer do my regular swimming.
And after teaching a 3-hr class, I could barely stand up.
I had neck strain for several months that wasn't going away. I'd had
chiropractic once and a lot of physical therapy at an orthopedic surgeon's
office. But these treatments didn't go deep enough to relieve the
problem. This Bodywork was the only thing that helped, and it has
helped a lot.
I’m thrilled with the speed of release from Lou’s treatment. In
just 1-hour my body is expectedly lighter and more expanded, but also, my
posture is more erect, with no strain to maintain forward and backward
balance. I look forward to learning this modality from Lou, and to
incorporate it in my practice.
Ms DLK, Licensed MASSAGE THERAPIST,
Myo-facial Release Practitioner
had a 3-hour session with Lou, and
with his method, I got the equivalent of five 1-hour sessions I’d
gotten with the Rolfer I’d been seeing in California for years.
Lou also went deeper than my Rolfer had ever gone, and there wasn’t the
pain, either. It didn’t hurt like the long deep pulling I’d had; and I
didn’t feel “planed.” Lou’s hands on-technique uses shorter strokes and
combines a fascial stretching, a massage pressing and a tissue healing.
I also didn’t hurt the next day as I did after the Rolfer’s sessions.
In just 1-hour Lou fixed
many problems in my body that many other
therapists and chiropractors could not fix. It not only made me
feel looser and more relaxed, it changed the shape of my body
so that my excessive lower back curve was less, I stand straighter and
taller, the pain in my neck, shoulders and back is gone, and I breathe
deeper with longer breaths.
Just one 2-hr session fixed a pain in my right groin and upper thigh,
and my back feels wonderful. After having three 2-hr sessions, I haven’t had the pain again in over a year.
Ms TN, Registered NURSE and regular ATHLETE, age 31
I'd been in an auto accident followed by a motorcycle accident. My right hip and both lower leg bones were broken. I was in
constant extreme pain
and had very little flexibility. I was unable to walk and couldn't even
straighten my leg. I'd also been limping for 8 years due to a tumor
growing in the same hip joint.
The bodywork treated tightness and limited motion from fractured neck vertebrae C6 & C7, from a skiing accident. It got rid of the
stiffness and nerve twinges, my head and neck are now more
aligned with my torso, and my neck feels and moves better.
Mr TF, Corporate Chief Administrator, regular ATHLETE, age 48
I’d fallen and had a severe knee injury for which I’d had an operation;
and my legs, and whole body, were very tight, with a number of chronic
painful places. After 4-1/2 hours of Bodywork I walk looser, not as stiff
and robot-like. My right ankle which was stiff and in pain,
as if it was bruised, is now better and no longer in pain.
1-hr treatment I felt "5" inches taller. I really
felt good. Usually I'm tired at the end of the day and
I wasn't after the treatment. I felt very rested. The
arthritis in my hands, which is usually all the time, no longer hurt. My neck is a lot looser. I'm standing straighter, and my shoulders are
looser. I also doesn't feel like my back is so tight as usual.
I had polio as a child which caused paralysis in my legs, and
arms, and I still have my right arm and left leg significantly atrophied.
I've walked with a very decided limp for years. In fact, even just
prior to the 10 hours of Lou's Bodywork in 3 days, I used to have to swing
my right leg around to kind of throw it forward, and I've been using a can
had a lot of tension around breathing, and I’d had a “knot” by my Khyphoid
process, in the center of my upper abdomen, just underneath my diaphragm.
Lou’s Bodywork completely loosened this up.
Overall, I released a lot of physical, and emotional, tension. So I felt more and more relaxed and the benefits not only lasted, they increased cumulatively from session to session. It became easier to do my personal and professional life. And even though I was under a great deal of strain at the time, I became lighter and happier.
Ms DH, Project Financial Agent and Financial Consultant, Certified “Shen” EMOTIONAL RELEASE THERAPIST
I had a lot
of Bodywork treatments from Lou over 3 years. Even the first few
2-hour sessions made a very big difference. My whole body felt
better. I was looser, freer, more alive and I found my endurance was much
greater. I could swim in the ocean for two full hours before getting
tired. A lot of tension and tightness also was removed from my face and I
little more than 1-1/2 hours treatment, the bad knot I'd had in the left shoulder, radiating pain down my arm, was totally gone and I couldn't even
feel where it had been tight or painful. I also felt much looser and
After I broke my shoulder, I had this Bodywork.
Because of the
treatments, I was able to have full range of motion in my shoulder which
the doctor had thought would be impossible.
I also returned to
work a month earlier than the doctor had predicted.
The pain and
tightness I'd been feeling in my legs all week was gone in one 2-hr
I'd fallen and gotten a sore wrist, which was hurting me
for days. I’d
tried rest, ice, a bandage, compression, homeopathics, Touch for Health,
Reiki and two other kinds of energy healing, and a good chiropractic
adjustment on the wrist and back.
series of treatments were really good, they made a HUGE
difference. I felt more connected physically, all around. My
body parts felt more like when I was a kid. And my posture got
straighter and more upright.
It's helped loosen my body a lot, especially the chronic
pain in my shoulders and neck, including the tightness and pain from
an auto accident. It's increased my flexibility, especially in the

ongoing hip pain from an old injury, and it aligned my legs and feet

had constant pain in my right knee to the point that it restricted
movement and diminished strength. I'd contemplated arthroscopic surgery.
The pain went away after the first 2-hr leg bodywork session, staying
away for a couple of weeks and coming back occasionally, but nowhere
near what it was. Then, when I'd stretch my leg, the pain went away.
With more bodywork sessions, to make the treatment more thorough, the pain
has stayed away for longer and longer periods of time, and I only have
to stretch a couple minutes to remove the pain.
Also, if I stand for a great deal of time, as in my job, I get left kneecap pain and popping and pain down my leg. If I now stretch for about 20 min's, the pain goes away.
Mr JG, Martial Artist, Intensive Care NURSE
Since Lou’s deep and thorough treatments, my leg and body have felt
tremendous. I no longer have the muscle tightness and spasms, and the
fascial pain, in my right leg the way I did for 4-5 years. And it kept getting
steadily worse. Also, the whole lower back area is a lot better. I haven’t
had any problem there since, and it was a problem off and on for 30 years,
does fantastic work. His gentle but deep muscle and fascia
manipulation has loosened up both of my shoulders
and helped to lighten my spirit.
Dr KB, DC, DOCTOR OF CHIROPRACTIC
I don't have as much tightness in the shoulders as I used to. And as
the tightness of my muscles has released, I feel freer and I'm standing
Mr WT, Businessman, age 28
My chiropractor said "Lou's treatment was the best thing that could have
happened to me." She said that after a treatment, when I'd leave,
there was something missing in the treatment but she didn't know what it
was. And after 3-hours of Lou's Bodywork, I saw her again and when I
left there wasn't anything missing.
I'm moving around better and I'm breathing better; my breathing is now totally open, totally different from what it ever was.
