My 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 half
ago 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!
