Give me a call today to discuss what’s going on with your body, and how I can help.
Here’s the story of Claire, my sweet mommy. She is in her 70’s, lives in Florida, her and her husband keep a year round garden (collards in the winter, in April she already had waist high tomato plants). She loves to putter around the yard. She exercises just about every day, rocking out to her 50’s cassette tapes in the spare bedroom, and walking along the river with her husband. She is active, vibrant, and loves being outside.
Look how cute she is!
Recently, she was suffering from back pain so bad that she was unable to do the things she loves. When I visited her this spring, and saw how stiff she was, I knew we had to do something right away.
We started with heat, massage, and abdominal breathing. Each day we did a few exercises, and/ or soft tissue work. As she started to feel better we added new moves, slowly working our way from tiny clamshells and bird dogs, to bridges, squats and plank variations. After two days she was feeling better, after two weeks she was pain free!
She was walking at her normal pace, and able to do her regular exercises (she was even able to get on her hands and knees to pull weeds!).
If this sounds like an experience you have had, or are having with your back, watch this video, and listen closely to my cueing.
Go slowly, do less than you think you can, breathe, rest, and be really sweet with yourself.
There is hope, even if you have been diagnosed with arthritis, or a disc issue. Whether you are trying to prevent surgery, or recovering from surgery, I am here for you.
If you’d like me to personally take you thru these exercises give me a call. (503) 705-4762

I’m Claire, Anne’s Mom.
I have an area in my low back which gives me trouble about every 6 or 7 years when I do something stupid. I love to work in the yard and exercise. In early spring, there’s always a lot of yard work I want to tackle. In mid-February our weather was beautiful. I over-did it and ended up with some nasty low back pain. When Anne came for a visit in mid-April, my back was a little better, but I was still not able to exercise or do yardwork.
Anne massaged my back, applied heat, and showed me some exercises and stretches to help me. After a week and a half, I was much improved. A few days later I was just about pain free! In the last week I have been able to work in the yard 2 days with no problem. I’m continuing my back exercises, and plan to start back on my regular exercises soon.
Anne was a lifesaver. She knows her business and wants to help you.
Don’t stay in pain – give her a call!
