June 24, 2014My name is John. I am 66 years old and I TRY to enjoy a 2 mile walk 3 or 4 times a week. About a year and a halfago muscle cramps started developing in my lower back and legs which at times were so bad that walking two miles was just not possible. I would get about 1/4 mile into my walk start cramping up and have to cut the walk short.Carolyn Cerbo is a trusted friend of 5 or 6 years that I know to be a caring professional who is passionate about her work in the areas of nutrition/naturopathy and massage therapy ("orthopedic bodywork"). Initially I did not go to Carolyn with my problem because her practice is about 90 miles from my home. Instead I used a massage therapist in my area who worked specifically on the muscle or muscle groups that were bothering me. This worked short term but in a few weeks I would find myself back on her table again.When I called Carolyn and explained the problems I was having she:a. Scheduled me an appointment about 2 weeks out. It was 2 weeks out because we are both busy people.b. Suggested I try Epsom Salts baths in the mean time, which I did and the baths helped some.In my first session with Carolyn she:a. Carefully analyzed my symptoms.b. Identified and correctly diagnosed my problems!c. Showed me some exercises to do at home on my own.d. Recommended a successful course of treatment to fix my problems which included 3 sessions close together. For a day or two after the first session I had some muscle soreness, which was expected, but was able to complete my walks without cramping up. However, I continued following Carolyn’s instructions - taking the Epson salt baths and exercising. When I went in for my second session with Carolyn I told her “Ya fixed my body!” I have been pain free for almost 2 weeks and I am walking without cramping up. Carolyn was pleased with the improvement but suggested that we go on with the session anyway explaining that a cumulative effect can be achieved through multiple visits close together. I am so glad we did! After completing the second session I am experiencing a whole new level of Pain Free! When I walk now it is like every muscle in my body is flowing together. Everything feels so smooth! My energy is up, my pace has increased even my posture is improved. Can’t wait for the third session.Thank You Carolyn!

Waited 3weeks for massage, no pregnancy massage table. I ended up 30min side ways only worked on my upper shoulder and neck and arm, then had me face up for the other 30min, it was so uncomfortable! I told her my lower back hurt and my left ankle had a sprain, and also my shoulders. Didnt get but 10min in ankle, no lower back, at all!!! Im still hurting, pd 75 instead of the 60 that was told. I would not recommend! No proper equipment, doesnt try to work all areas in an hour, cant afford her on her time and services.. sorry to expensive to not get relief

Best massage and body work I've ever had! I went to see Carolyn because of back & neck injury, and I have experienced significant relief from the symptoms I was having. I've had many massages, but Carolyn's compassion, education, and wholistic consideration of the body puts her in the top tier of massage therapist in the nation. I highly recommend Carolyn to everyone, especially individuals with pain issues or chronic conditions.
