Heartwarming Comments

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

Independence High School

It is with great pleasure that I write this testimonial for Dr. Frank Ricci. I searched long and hard to find a speaker for my Tobacco use prevention education group.

In my 38 years of teaching I have observed many speakers and attended many workshops. This ranks as one of the best. He was very motivating and is an expert in behavior modification. By the end of the night he had students "ready to quit" smoking.

If you have an opportunity to have Frank work with your group you will not regret it. - Ronald Locicero, TUPE Coordinator ESUHSD, Independence High School, San Jose, CA   View Letter
