"...and Christy's work has helped bring my leg back to a condition that otherwise wouldn't have been possible trying to do this on my own. I can feel that she cares about my well being in a way that wasn't like what I had experienced at any of the physical therapy clinics."

CLIENT STORIES and Successes

Lower Back Pain, Scoliosis, Child Birth Coaching

Beginning in 1979 I started seeing a variety of health professionals, internists, physical therapists, chiropractors, neurologists and orthopedists for lower back pain. The relief was sporadic and their diagnoses were inconclusive, eg. "bulging discs, scoliosis, no evidence of any problem."

When I started working with Christy Friederich in January 1987 she was able to discern that my problems were created by postural imbalances. Her use of Ortho-Bionomy © plus a home exercise program have resulted in an ongoing healing process that has improved my posture and health, as well as, renewed my vitality.

Ortho-Bionomy© is a gentle, individualized approach. The body sets the pace. The releasing and rebalancing happen gradually. During the past three years I have experienced subtle and dramatic changes: my chest size has expanded; my feet are longer; my breathing and digestion are easier; my gait is not so stiff; I have more energy and the ability to handle discomfort when it arises. These physical changes have "rippled out" to the emotional and psychological levels as we.

I've been so impressed with the results of Christy's work that I have brought my daughter and husband to her. In March 1990 I had a second child. Christy assisted at the labor & delivery, as well as with a postpartum Ortho-Bionomy/exercise program. She worked with my infant son's postnatal neck and shoulder soreness - enabling him to nurse and sleep more comfortably.

I am very grateful to have found a process that honors the body's natural inclination to heal itself and gently facilitate that healing. Sincerely, S.L.

I can't think of a time when what we've worked on hasn't dovetailed into and supported whatever else I'm working on in my life. Specific healing stories? The most powerful one I can think of is the work we did with Kev on his birthing process." S.L.
