“A session with Art is not just a moment of being taken care of with the utmost awareness, but it is also an honest and revealing experience. Art creates a safe and empowering environment.
I can rave on about how amazing Art is at Neuromuscular Therapy but I would like to take this opportunity to share with you how safe he made me feel. As a women it is not always easy to see a male practitioner. From the beginning Art made it very clear to me that I was in charge. I had two words at my disposal- stop and lighter. These magic words made me feel safer but I still wasn’t completely at ease. Throughout the session he kept reminded me that I had to use them. It is interesting to realize that even though he gave me freedom and clear instructions to vocalize my comfort/discomfort level, I felt scared to do so. He is very intuitive, therefore he was able to tell by my breathing when I was not well. At the end of the session I was completely at ease with him and trusted his guidance. Art never stopped checking in with me and reinforcing the magic words. Moreover, when I began releasing some sorrow he compassionately encouraged me to let go, all the while staying within the context of the bodywork.
My neck and shoulders feel free. My shoulder blades have glided back to their rightful place and my calves have loosen their grip. Art is a wonderful practitioner, I will recommend him to everyone I know.”
