Comments from Clients:

"I feel so much better, thank you for checking! I am sleeping amazingly... and whatever you did to my sternum area, I think it got rid of my heartburn... So, thank you!" - K.W.

"Since I started receiving massages from Marlena, I have experienced major and unexpected health benefits.  As a result of surgery for a ruptured appendix, I have suffered for many years from serious diarrhea.  My doctors always said that it was something I should expect as a result of a condition called “short bowel syndrome” and that nothing could be done for it.  However, since Marlena began massaging my abdomen to release the scar tissue caused by the surgery, my diarrhea has improved dramatically.  Rather than having multiple diarrhea events every day accompanied by cramping and nausea, it is now rare for me to have a bad episode.  My health and well-being are much improved and I spend much less time feeling ill and chained to the house.  Thanks so much to Marlena for her help!" - C.M.

"Thank you so much for the session.  I had to wait a few days to make sure I wasn't imagining the difference.  I feel much better, and my hips even swing a lot smoother .  The wooden leg feeling isn't there anymore.  I still feel some twinging here and there, but I am so relieved to see the burning has stopped.  I am looking forward to working with you again to see how much of my movement I can gain back." - V.Y.

"The Visceral Manipulation is the only thing that worked for me so I will be back later for more ...There seems to be some problem with my urethra closing properly and  the little VM you did relieved that for almost 4 months (I do not want suggested surgery)." - P.W.

"In the 5 years that I've been going to Marlena, she has used her magic touch to free old scar tissue in my shoulder to restore flexibility, promote healing in a surgical site, keep my old knees in travel shape, lower my stress levels, and iron out the various aches and kinks from traveling. I appreciate her commitment to continuing education and always adding to her bag of tricks. Her clients benefit greatly from her variety of techniques." - P.L.B.
