Client Testimonials

It’s been difficult to find someone to treat me for pain. I have had 4 spinal surgeries and in 2011 I was diagnosed with transverse myleitis, my spinal cord is continually inflamed and often causes pain.

I read about myofascial release, and then did a search and found David on line. He’s helped me move forward at a greater pace than any other professional. It’s really worth the long drive.

It is truly amazing to me that David’s therapy helps me so much and I feel very lucky to have found him. David does a more newly developed system of therapy and it is hard to find people who are able to do it well.

-Francis  (Note-Francis is a patient with a very difficult pain to manage. She was sensitive to touch and needed a gentle touch to help her relieve pain and stress. We were able to get her on the right track and on her way to feeling better. It helps to contact us at Innovative Pain Release Center to determine your needs.

Living with multiple chronic illness and permanent nerve damage that cause severe pain and dizziness for many years, I found myself grasping at straws to help myself. I am very sensitive to the medicines the neurologist prescribed. The pain and dizziness had become unbearable and I rarely had a better day. Having always been a strong and positive person I was not willing to give up on having a better life at the age of 61. Having tried acupuncture, the TENS unit, calmare treatments, cervical shots, PT, and various medicines among things over the years with limited success, I truly felt like giving up on ever feeling better. Then my husband and I attended a health and wellness fair at Colonial Heritage community where we have been living for 2-1/2 years, where we met and spoke with David and his wife Linda about integrative manual therapy: a noninvasive therapy that included craniosacral therapy and other therapeutic light touch techniques. Having lived with severe pain from a cervical fusion, spinal cord stenosis, spondylosis and cord damage for many years, along with small fiber peripheral neuropathy, I would welcome any relief from my symptoms. The most important thing was that I would not be further injured in any way.
I can’t say enough to express my appreciation and gratitude for David’s sincere efforts in helping me to live a better life.

David is a professional, kind and caring IMT therapist who is very generous with his time in caring for a patient as a whole person. He takes the time to fully listen to and address any and all of your issues of pain and discomfort and identifies the areas one may need help in relieving pain and feeling poorly. He looks at you as a whole person and addresses all the various systems in our body along with your medical history. Dietary nutritional discussions along with many other healthful suggestions and the totally relaxing light touch pain treatment sessions have truly helped improve my life. I have been able to eliminate and cut down several medicines under the guidance of my pain management doctor. I am feeling the best I have in many years. I combine easy gentle chair yoga, walking, eating a more healthful diet for better nutrition and trying many of the various healthful suggestions from David along with my light music and meditation. My sleep and dizziness have improved, I have increased energy and am able to do more gentle activities without increased pain. I feel totally relaxed after a session as if I’d been to a spa. I am able to do some activities I have not been able to enjoy in a long time.

David has helped me significantly with vertigo, digestive problems, reflux, having difficulty getting food all the way through my esophagus, recovery from a leg injury, dental surgery, and eye surgery, circulation issues with lymphedema, and generally staying healthy and feeling good most of the time. I come to David once a month no matter what is going on with my health at the time as his therapy always releases all my stress, helps my energy to stay high, and gives me a sense that his therapy is playing a big part in my staying healthy and feeling good. After all, I am 78 and very active and love life. As a result of my therapy with David Herring, I experience my body, mind, and spirit as integrated and heated. It is a joyous feeling for which I have deep gratitude.

David listens very carefully to what my problems are and I feel that he really brings improvement, most notably in misalignments of my feet, hips, and ribs that no other health practitioner was able to solve, or maybe understand.  Generally, I am sleeping better. David has also brought me relief for headaches or nausea. I find it quite a miracle.

At last, someone was actually able to locate the epicenter of combined factors that had eroded my health and vitality until I had become almost an invalid-the proverbial ‘monkey-wrench’ in my gears of good health. What amazed me the most, was that he immediately put his hands on main lynchpin problem and deftly began the gradual process of extracting it, so that when I left his office to drive back home to the Northern Neck following my initial visit, I was 100% pain-free and felt greater well being than I had in literally years. I have begun to taking courses to become a certified practitioner myself.

I know we will be coming to David for a long time. He gives the example of the onion, and that he’s got to get down to more and more layers each time.  And Justin has felt significant improvement. We used to come every other week, but the ‘off’ week really did turn out to be ‘off’ for Justin, so now we come every week. We have other medical professionals in Justin’s life, but coming to David once a week has given us the greatest relief and satisfaction.

I have some bone issues that have caused a serious low back pain for many years, David Herring helped me better almost immediately.

Don Leftwich, Williamsburg, VA 

I had a bad fall a dozen or so years ago, and have had three back and neck operations over the years. I am in fairly constant pain, especially my shoulder. So when, after a long photo shoot, David invited me to ‘try the goods’, I went for it. After that hour, which has been more than two months ago, I have not felt a twinge of pain in my shoulder. Sounds like a miracle, but there you have it. I’m going to David regularly to work on other areas.

 I have been coming to David’s office for treatment for the last two years. The gentle therapies David provides have been instrumental in recovering from significant and chronic back/leg/hip pain. David truly listens to your concerns, asks detailed follow up questions, and hones right in your specific issue.  Even though I no longer experience chronic pain, I always feel refreshed and rejuvenated after my monthly sessions with David. I cannot recommend the treatments he provides enough! David’s calm nature and gentle therapies have made a huge impact on my life.
