This Patient was having persistent pain since having deviated septum surgery. The symptoms improved through my using cranial sacral therapy combined with myofascial release therapy. She wrote this to me.
Hi David, I had hoped I might be able to see you before I left town to move, but alas too many things are required that don’t leave me the final opportunity. So, just wanted to send you a note to say thank you for your help and kindness this spring. I really appreciate it.
As a physical and craniosacral therapist myself, I appreciate David’s skill, knowledge and professionalism.
When I first saw David, I was limping terribly and was waiting for a knee replacement. This limp caused strain throughout my body. His total body approach addressed the knee pain as well as my gait and spine tension.
David’s approach helped me recognize the tension patterns throughout my body caused by the limping gait. I continued sessions with David after knee surgery as my body changed during recovery.
Each session began and ended with a whole body assessment and review of my symptoms. David’s presence and individualization of the therapy added a deep healing experience to the treatment.
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.
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.
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 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 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.
Thank you, David!
I wanted to express gratitude to David Herring. He has been incredibly caring and helped our daughter to release stress accumulated in her jaw with holistic manual therapies that was causing numerous issues. I feel relieved to have met a health care provider who sees human body as a whole system. Our girl is happier and more active.
Hi David, I just wanted to let you how much your three sessions helped my sciatica. Since my last treatment, my pain level has steadily decreased to feeling pain free. I was having knee pain at the same time I had sciatica, but I knew the two were unrelated as I’ve had knee pain before also. I had an appointment yesterday with an orthopedic doctor, had x-rays and was told I had almost bone on bone arthritis in my left knee. He gave me a cortisone shot which gave me immediate relief. So, your treatment for sciatica and the cortisone shot in the knee have been a godsend. I’m finally able to move around without pain and also get a good night’s sleep! Thank you, David!
I have been working with David for just over a year now and could not be happier with the results I have received. He has helped to greatly reduce my back pain, neck pain and knee pain. Thanks, David!
Many thanks for keeping on the road to good health, I appreciate your generous time and commitment more than you know. I have come to David for various problems. I have had pain in my knees that he has helped relieve. He has helped me with clearing blocked energy that had made my legs twitch and jump at night. I sleep much more soundly thanks to his work. He even helped me with a virus that had been hanging on for many weeks using one of his techniques. I have recommended him to family and friends and all have experienced positive results. I would recommend David without hesitation to anyone who is looking for relief from pain and stress.
From the beginning I appreciated David’s thinking about different issues. He offered information and approaches that seemed unique to me. It was remarkable that the symptoms decreased and then disappeared over time – simply by his use of light touch techniques that cause no pain while being applied to very painful areas of my body.
In fact, in addition to helping the areas of pain, I found his sessions relaxing and stress releasing.
