Linda M. – Classes Help
“I have not missed a class since I started Postural Alignment classes back in October 2015. It has made a significant difference in my neck and shoulder pain. I have herniated discs in my neck and have tried everything from Acupuncture to Prescriptions to Pain Management and have not had much success until I starting Deb’s Postural Alignment class.
I had pain in my wrists which I thought was Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and recently found out that I was misdiagnosed. My pain was radiating from the herniated discs in my neck. My wrist pain has also subsided since I have been taking Deb’s postural alignment class. I especially love the fact that Deb explains exactly why we are doing each exercise, its purpose and the affect that it has on our body. I have felt such a positive change in my life and overall well-being.
Thank you so much Deb!”
Gwynn D. – Fixed More Than Posture
“I have suffered from back and neck pain for years. I also knew that my posture was not very good, but did not connect the two. Then I started having severe hip pain and even a numb lower leg. I went to the doctor and was given muscle relaxers and pain killers, but the pain persisted. Next, I started going to a physical therapist, which I kept up for a few years, but while I did get some relief, it wasn’t enough. Finally, I heard about Deb’s class. I have to admit, it was not so much the idea of she might reduce the pain that motivated me, but more the idea I could get help with my posture. I enjoyed the first class, but knew I needed more and preferred to not do my exercises in a class setting. Seven months ago, I had Deb start working with me on a monthly basis. Each time I go, she photographs me to analyze my posture from the side, back, and front. It is exciting to see the progress over where I had started. I am finally straightening out! My hip pain and numb leg issue have disappeared. My neck and back pain are much reduced. My friends and family notice that my posture is improving – I am told I look taller and thinner! I plan to continue with this program until my posture is where it should be and the pain is gone. I spend time each day doing the exercises Deb gives me. The menu changes each month based on how my posture has changed. This is a program that truly I believe in and the proof is in seeing what it has done for me.”
D. Parrish PTA – Degenerative Hip
“I have been working with Deb Freeman, for almost 4 months, to relieve chronic right hip pain of over 5 years duration. During that time, I have had a significant decrease in the constant chronic pain, and an increase in hip stability, function and muscle strength. It has been a team effort in that Deb uses before and after photos at every session, her visual expertise and my feedback to create exercise programs specific to my condition at that time. As my condition changes the exercises change. She is my coach and I do the physical work. The exercises are clearly listed and come with video instructions for each.
Deb is not only totally focused on your performance and progress in each session, but checks on your progress between sessions through phone calls and on line evaluation forms. She is passionate about helping people recover from pain and it shows in her work. As a physical therapist assistant for over 30 years, I appreciate good treatment as a client and that is what I’ve gotten from Deb.
If you are willing to put in the work, she is there to help you.”
Tracie F. – I’ve Tried Everything Else
“I have a couple of pain issues – mild rheumatoid arthritis that would mostly bother me in my feet, and more challenging – tailbone pain that was unexplained and daily. The arthritis was just something I’d gotten used to over the years, but the tailbone pain was something I could not live with without some relief. Over the course of 5 years I have had 7 spinal injections to help control the pain, but none of them ever worked 100% and some of them didn’t work at all. Deb introduced me to posture therapy a few years ago when she was just using it herself for pain relief. I first bought the Pain Free for Women book and read it and started doing some of the exercises. I had some relief in my feet which was great, but I didn’t really stick with it and the pain just came back.”
Michelle I. – Increasing Energy
“It has been an honor to work with Deborah and learn more about posture therapy. The most challenging part of the program is learning how to say his name.
As a teacher and practitioner of yoga and bodywork for 30 years I understand the necessity of practice. Recognizing how important practice is if our desire is transformation. With this method the exercises are simple, clear, and forthright. Deborah’s devotion to the practice reflects in the way she radiates life. Because she has transformed and continues to grow inspires others who have a similar intention or desire.”
Yona B. – In Only 3 Classes
“How many ways can I say ‘thank you’? I feel so much better!
My story: I fell last year, broke my ankle, tore a ligament and went through the normal sequence wearing a ‘boot’ and then physical therapy. It took about 5 months before I began experiencing sharp pains in my neck whenever I lay down. After several more weeks, the neck pain became my constant issue. My chiropractor tried to help but the results lasted about 24 hours. I went to my acupuncturist and she determined that it was coming from the ankle injury. I went to her several weeks in a row as I was getting results that lasted 3 to 4 days after treatment. However, the pain would come back. I couldn’t sleep for more than a few hours at a time before I would need to massage some numbing tincture in order to get a few more hours of sleep. This whole thing was exhausting me.”
Rachel D. – Runner Seeks Relief
“I have been running for about 7 years now. As the years have gone on, I have been getting more and more into it. It started with running a 5K and has become running a marathon. Unfortunately, with running far distances, comes easy injuries. I had been struggling with multiple injuries with my knee, shoulders, hips, and shins. I was referred to a chiropractor. I went for two sessions and while it cracked me into place, that only last for a few days before I was in pain again. Deborah Freeman then told me about posture therapy. She took pictures, and was able to give me a full diagnosis and a menu of e-cises in just a few days. She made sure that she made the menu short enough that I would get to the e-cises everyday. Deborah also took the time to show me each one so that I would get the full results.”
Rebekah H. – Hip Pain
“The E-cises Deb gave me made a big difference in my posture and overall feeling of well-being. I initially started with the e-cises because I was having issues with pain my hip. By strengthening certain parts of my body and correcting my posture, the pain in my hip went away, and I also began noticing a more confident presentation in my body language. I felt taller, more healthy and aligned, and overall more comfortable moving around, especially during exercise. I am very glad I chose to start this program, and I plan to continue improving my body and mood using e-cises.”
Sharon S. – Chronic Back Pain
“With chronic back pain, I was at the point of trying anything except another surgery. I was introduced to posture therapy and was skeptical at first. Actually, I was concerned that the wrong movement would make me worse, but after just one session my pain was relieved, as well as the headache I happened to have at the time! This is absolutely worth trying before ever going under the knife.”
