Testimonials for Lance
After a couple of invasive and life-altering surgeries, I’ve spent years dealing with residual pain due to deep scar tissue. I’ve tried many methods to alleviate the pain…but nothing has been able to give me relief. 6 months ago I received my first massage from Lance. I was amazed at the relief I felt almost instantly. Not only has he been able to significantly reduce my pain level, he has also given me different exercises to do on my own to help further. In addition to the relief from massage, Lance is also sharing his knowledge with me. He talks me through what he is doing, telling me what areas he is targeting and why it will work. Lance really knows his stuff. I would recommend Lance for ALL patients seeking pain relief. His knowledge and technique offers patients a natural way to feel better, thus avoiding reliance on medication for pain relief. – Doug C., Cincinnati, OH
After suffering from severe pain and many forms of ineffective treatment for degenerative disc disease in my neck and lower back, I required a cane to walk and had very limited movement. I then broke my foot and needed surgery. Recovery took more than six months, during which I could not walk, causing the muscles in both legs to atrophy. With his knowledge of physical therapy and expertise in therapeutic massage, Lance was able to help me regain mobility from my back problems and to quickly recover from foot surgery. I receive regular treatments for maintenance. I’m very happy to report that I’m not only able to navigate stairs, walk long distances and stand for extended periods with minimal pain, but I’m also able to get down on the floor to play with my new granddaughters! I feel much younger than I did eight years ago, and I’m grateful for each pain-free step I’m able to take. – Charisse R., Cincinnati, OH
