Nothing I did not like

Nothing I didn’t like
by Margery on Feb 10
Catherine conducted the most thorough intake of any of the many health professionals I have dealt with, including pain management doctors! She takes as much time as needed to determine what health problems there are so that she can give the most effective treatment possible. I was impressed by her knowledge, experience, and her willingness to explain the physiology of specific problems and her treatment of them.
by Margery on Feb 10
I came in with a pounding headace and severe neck and shoulder pain. Catherine worked on the sources of my pain with a combination of manual lymph drainage techniques and massage. It was pleasant, relaxing and I could feel the benefits almost immediately. I left with only a light headache, in much less pain and very encouraged.
by Margery on Feb 10
I was almost totally unfamiliar with the lymphatic system and its relationship to pain. Through both the intake and massage sessions, Catherine took the time to expain the processes. I was surprised to be able to feel the benefit almost immediately. She was able to relieve much of my facial pain and I was able to breathe much more freely! She has had an extraordinary amount of experience and it certainly shows in how effective she is.
