Bones For Life®, Ortho-Bionomy®
These are feedbacks about what people experienced after taking the Bones for Life classes or experiencing an Ortho-Bionomy session:
I just wanted to thank you again for the time you took to give me an Orthobionomy consultation. Your knowledge, caring and expertise in body alignment, mechanics and therapies helped me to understand better what is going with my chronic knee and hip pain. You communicated this clearly and made me feel like I was in capable hands. After our session, I did feel better in the areas that continually cause me trouble.
What touched me most was your genuine care and concern for my well being. You didn't try to sell me a package, but rather, informed me of my choices and advised me on what I could do to improve my condition. I truly appreciated this approach.
Thanks again and feel free to use me as a reference. Warmly, Christine, May 2017 St. Augustine,FL
I learned about Anne and her therapy methods at a presentation she held at the Anastasia Branch Library in the spring of 2018. I have suffered extreme lower back pain for years; took 3 months of physical therapy in 2017, with little relief. In the winter of 2017-2018 I developed constant pain and numbness in my right leg, starting at the upper thigh and going down to my little toe. It was during that time that I was diagnosed with sciatica, lumbar stenosis and damage to L4 and L5. Another 3 months of physical therapy brought little relief. Because of the constant pain I was limited to basic chores at home and curtailed most of my activities. Walking and standing aggravated the pain. Rather than live on pain pills I decided to give Anne a try. After 8 therapy sessions with Anne I am feeling so much better. The back and leg pains have decreased considerably and I have been able to resume most normal activities. She worked with various muscles and joints and she magically releases the painful areas. She discovered I was walking incorrectly which probably was a result of overcompensation for various pains in past years. Once I corrected my walking, the level of pain decreased considerably. Anne has suggested some simple exercises and positions I can do on my own that help relieve the pain. She has also shown me breathing techniques to ease the stress and help me relax so my body does not tighten up. Anne’s magical fingers have truly been a blessing to me.

Anne, It has been an awesome journey here in Gainesville and fortunately for me that I met you along the path. My body had been out of sorts for months and was limiting my activities, actually limiting my life. After taking a few Bones for Life classes and feeling hopeful, I received Ortho-Bionomy® sessions. Lo and behold this was the solution to reconnecting to my body. Your knowledge along with your caring and down to earth professional manner made me eager to meet with you. I do believe that the Ortho-Bionomy sessions combined with Bones for Life movements were a recipe that worked. I feel like a renewed woman. Thank you, thank you, did I say thank you. When I return from California I will be back for “tune ups”." M.M., 2016
"I have to tell you that my neck felt great the evening right after the workshop. I have 3 herniated discs from a car accident in March 2010 and my neck hasn't felt that good since then. I feel like I've grown a few inches. It’s been almost two weeks since I took your workshop and I’m still feeling great! I continue to practice the exercises and I also realized that I needed a new pillow so between doing my Bouncing on the heels, the Wave processes, AND a new pillow, my neck is feeling great. It’s amazing how much it’s changed my outlook on my day to day dealings with life stuff." Bonnie from Winter Park,FL.2016
The Bones for Life Segment 1 workshop was really a great class. It’s always amazing to experience how awareness, combined with small movements, can make such changes in posture, flexibility and overall improvement in ease of movement. Anne, you really made the class interesting and fun and allowed space for each of us to experience the work at our own pace. It’s nice to take a class that is so useful for yourself and to learn things that will help your clients as well. Thanks, I will definitely be taking more Bones for Life classes from you.

"I am standing up straighter. Feeling all areas on my feet in order to balance and feel more grounded".
A student from Orange Park,FL.
"Having been diagnosed with Osteoporosis, I found that your Aging Gracefully with Bones for Life workshop provided me with new tools for building bone strength. The class was informative, gentle and worked with our body's innate intelligence. Incorporating these simple exercises re-patterns our physical structure into an overall healthier alignment. This has a positive effect on all body systems and general wellbeing. I will continue to utilize this and look forward to attending follow-up workshops."

" I went on a 9-mile hike on Saturday, and at one point, I started having a bit of low-back pain. I adjusted my spine the way you showed us, and the pain went away! It was great. After the walk, my back didn't hurt at all. I love that I have another tool in my kit to help me with wellness. I love that the processes are easy to do, and that they have lasting effects." Thanks for a great class! "
Kathy, Gainesville, FL
"Thanks again for a great class. I learned so much and am experiencing many benefits as a result. I am walking better, my sleep has improved, have less tension in my neck, shoulders, and lower back. I now have more awareness of my alignment and can easily use the processes to shift my posture in sitting or standing. Standing is almost effortless and I feel much more grounded and stable. Also, I had an immediate improvement in sensory integration--particularly left side/right side integration. Before I felt hypersensitive on my left while feeling almost nothing on my right. Now I feel both sides are more equal and integrated rather than like two separate halves that weren't connected. Another noticeable change is that I am able to quiet my mind and let go of excessive mind chatter. And to think that was with only the first 5 processes. I can't wait to learn and do them all and am planning to come to your next class for sure. "
Mary Sue, Gainesville, FL 2015
"Bones for Life was a delight to learn and simple to implement. I felt improvement in my posture within 5 minutes of doing the processes and by the end of the class I felt more balanced, taller, stable on my feet and fully grounded. I'm a firm believer in this work and greatly appreciated Anne's instruction and hands on approach with the students."
