Vanessa is one of those rare professionals who combines expertise, talent and dedication, with a warm, human touch. Her years of experience working with New York’s finest performers make Vanessa eminently qualified to take on any challenge, big or small. My experience has been so positive that I almost look for opportunities to recommend her to others.

I wanted to let you know that my sister and I ran the Texas Flower Country 5K yesterday at Wildseed Farms and my time was only 1 minute slower than last year! I was sooooo excited to cross the finish line pain free (and no abdominal pain today either!) As you know, after last year‘s race I wasn’t sure if I could ever run again. Thanks to you and your amazing Therapeutic Pilates/Physical Therapy I am running again pain-free.  I know I sound like an infomercial, but I am super excited and wanted to let you know. I am so grateful to you for everything that you have done to help me get back to this point, and I’m excited to continue running (mixing it with cross training as you well suggested!). I am again so grateful for your help.

I just wanted to thank you again so much for the PT you gave me last year.  My back was just a mess due to lumbosacral imbalance, but the exercises you taught me have kept me out of the pain zone for over a year.  I had been hesitant to travel before therapy, but I just got back from a 3-week trip to Spain, Turkey, and Greece, and handled everything with no problems (including carrying heavy bags up six flights of stairs in Madrid and Istanbul, ugh).  Now that I'm back home, I am vacuuming up a storm, and can also do that with no pain like before.  I do my exercises faithfully every other day, and even look forward to them.  As far as I'm concerned, you should get a Nobel Prize, or whatever the top prize for PTs is!  Just wanted you to know how much you helped me, and how grateful I am for your expertise.

Vanessa is a master teacher. The clarity of her instructions and demonstrations makes it easy to follow the class. And she is able to give directions for maximum value for each participant, regardless of previous experience. She is the best yoga instructor I have encountered!

Thank you so much for helping me re-cover so beautifully! You made the healing process joyful and gave me hope and confidence when I was in a dark, fearful place with my injury. You helped me reach my goal of coming out stronger than I was before! For that I am eternally grateful. Thank you again for your warm spirit, kindness, compassion, and healing energy!

Your skill amazes me because I had my injury for so long and you were able to turn it around when no one else could.

While participating in a six-month training program for the New York City Triathlon, I experienced a number of sports injuries. I was beginning to become very discouraged and wondered whether or not I would be able to finish the training, much less the Triathlon. Then I had my first few sessions with Vanessa. She really listened to my frustrations and understood how important this goal was to me. She discovered the smallest nuances about my body mechanics that have made a world of difference not only in sport, but in the rest of my life as well. The program she developed for me was manageable and effective, and best of all, it kept me moving! I completed my training program and raced my first Triathlon in just over 3 hours (my goal)

I can’t even begin to express how much I appreciate the time and energy you gave to me!
