Dramatic Life Changes


Found a New Life after the Loss of Daughter

Since the loss of my daughter, in July (2005), I have found nothing pleasurable, little to no motivation to do anything more than what is robotically there to do each day at work. When I stop moving and my mind has the opportunity to ‘think’ the realization can often be too much to bear.

Since your clinic I have, well I can’t explain it and won’t try to figure out an answer, more energy, feel more relaxed, have gotten out from under a seemingly never ending cloud and have started practicing my much loved yoga again. – Lisa D., CA
