     I used to have a lot of low back pain from cycling.
Each time I'd cycle the pain would get worse.
Now I do these stretches before I cycle and
no longer have the pain.
Health Food Cafe Assistant Manager

Lou's stretching has taken away my many year's ongoing neck pain
& severe tightness, that nothing else did.  J
ust the wrong turn or tweak
& it would be in great pain for 2 weeks at a time.

Lou's method of stretches also made me stronger.
Before, I couldn't add any bulk from working out.

By now stretching the way these DVDs teach, I can relax the muscles,
& actually added an inch to my arms in just 2 months.

It Lasts, because the actual tissue, the fascia surrounding the muscle fibers, is lengthened. 
And the legs leaning forward with torso-back leaning back, is straightened.  Both improvements are what cure many people's lower back pains.

I've had long term pain all over, & recently got 10 sessions of Rolfing (r)
I also now get trigger point therapy & chiropractic, so most of the pains are gone.
Yet my neck is still sore and my deep muscles are still tight.

    Lou analyzed my structural photos & explained how I still have
a big zig zag & indentation in my lower back, with my neck sticking forward. 
& this misaligned shape is part of the inner tightness I feel.

Even though I'd already gotten these good treatments, when I then
did Lou's Stretching DVD #1, I felt so much lighter & even straighter.

Adding Lou's "Bodywork Stretching Method" to the
Structural Integration Bodywork, ie"Rolfing (r), I'd gotten, has helped already.
And having had the Bodywork enables THIS stretching to create
the increased looseness, muscle length & alignment, on my own.
They help each other, & I hadn't known a LOT more Str Int could, & should, be done,
beyond the first 10-12 hours of the Standard Rolfing (r) Basic Series.

in my own yoga practice, especially the technique of how to get more length
by taking my attention into the muscles and spreading the fascia.
I also learned new positions in order to lengthen more of my structure.

Blue type summarizes key points

This is both a local area and an interconnected area stretching system. 
By doing a series of specific muscle areas and then a number of muscles
in the same line of your leg, arm, torso, etc,
you get more of your body lengthened & loosened,

and the next time you stretch any one area, it goes easier & further.
You'll also see the difference of first releasing muscle nerve tightness
& once that step is done, you can get bigger & longer lasting results
 in the same areas by then lengthening the shortened 'fascia' part of your muscles.

Developed from what I've created from the Structural Integration Bodywork
yoga, & physical therapy, for 26 years
I do the Yoga & PT stretches in the same section by section
fascia lengthening method  that I do the original ones i developed,
 & I integrate them into the 'system' for aligning and interconnectly
 lengthening areas, &  the whole body.

It teaches you by doing them, how to stretch the bellies of the muscles
and groups of muscles, as well as linking the stretches from one area
of the body to others.  This results in each area lengthening more

& your joint looseness is better than the usual way people are taught to stretch.
You can learn how to integrate your yoga & other stretches to improve
your body a few steps better than how you would do it
isolating the stretching of one body part from another.
Stretching Tips Article   -
-   typical stretching method shortcomings
& gives a method of how to do a little of what the DVDs do a lot.

Importantly, you experience how tightness in one area causes
tightness & pain in other areas. 
When you loosen both
the painful or tense feeling area, AND, the interconnected areas
 where you may not feel tightness and pain, then all of the areas feel much longer,
even where you thought you had no shortness.
(Even Olympic Athletes saw how much looser & longer they could become)
Bodywork Testimonials     Athletes      Back Pain     Other Pains & Tightness`    Seniors

   You can stand straighter with less or no effort,
your chest can feel more uplifted, arms not so curved over,
& your arm reach & leg stride are longer.
   You can even feel how the arms lengthen from the middle of the chest
 and how the legs can "move" from the belly & back.
   You can feel how lengthening arms & legs also loosens
the neck, back and rest of the torso.
   Fingers & hands get looser & feet more flexible.
   Your torso & limb muscles also get lighter yet with more power.
   The removal of deep fascial-muscle tightness gives "lighter' feeling.

Breathing gets increasingly deeper, fuller & easier
   as more of the body gets longer.
   (I also tell you how & why the improvement works .)

With this approach I made my & others' Bikram's  & other Yoga go longer & easier,
(The Bikram Teachers noticed.)
Physical Therapy stretching also increased.
Bodywork Testimonials   Yoga Teachers & Students

I use these same stretches & method in my hands-on sessions with clients,
Other people said their Bodywork from other practitioners also increased.
Adds noticeable whole body length & looseness to the hands-on,
Enables next hands-on to go further & deeper.

The stretches & the groupings on the DVDs
lets you do groups of related stretches at a time for backs, neck, arms, legs, stress
through the day, even in clothes at work  -- in 30 sec to 5 min stretchings

GREAT for computer tightness quick improvements --  right at your desk, too.
You can uplift & widen the torso & neck, stretch the arms, shoulders & hands,
   relax your legs, straighten your back & relax your face & head,
   all while even sitting down.

Releases tightness & stress right in the car or between stops.
You can even do leg loosening more & more thru the day, 1-2 mins at a time.

As well as in a whole DVD routine at home or in the gym

You get the feel for putting your awareness & feeling into the areas you are stretching,
& feel for yourself how it keeps spreading longer.

Also, if you are tight in any areas,  you can do my unique
 'brief & repeated tugging' (not bouncing) method,
 to get the muscle-nerve tightness loosened as well as the fascia lengthened.

Further, this is NOT a struggling painful stretching. 
Rather, as the fascia in each section gets longer, other areas lengthen more easily
& then returning to the original area, it gives way further & easier, too.

This system is more thorough than many others to improve the three necessary parts:
Fascial lengthening --- Interconnected muscle groups --- Structural realignment
And you can add to its effectiveness with your additional stretches
(But it is usually insufficient to try to incorporate these individual stretches into
your own routine that has not been a successful improvement method for you already.)
Just keep in mind these three necessary elements.

More thorough fascial fiber spreading in more areas
of the muscle, muscle groups, & whole body.

In this Structural Integration method,
what I have you do is put your body in certain positions
& keep a gentle but firm pull in a long length of muscles.
Then you focus on each few inches of the longer length
to encourage the collagen fibers of the fascia in that section of the muscles
 to spread one from the other, back out to their proper distances.

We also get more of the muscle areas than most other stretching gets.
For example, after doing say, a long stretch down a body part,
we then turn the foot, leg, arm or torso to get a couple other angles for other lines
of section by section stretches moving up the line. 
For example, we stretch the back of the legs
 in three lines, the adductors also in three lines,
and adjust the foot and leg position to get both the lower leg as well as thighs longer. 
We angle the quad stretches to lengthen the pelvic area as well as the middle thighs.
The same in the torso,
besides detailed methods of stretching the front and back center lines,
we also do the angles of the front and back and the sides,
including on the outside, in the rib cage, and along the spine.

This multi-line method as well as the section by section of each line method,
gets noticeably more length than just, for instance a stretch only down the middle
 of the back of the legs.  And in addition, lengthening one side angle
 of the same muscles enables another stretch down the middle line
to go further & easier.

We also do twisting stretches to open the leg and arm muscles,
separating one muscle bundle from another as there are a lot in say, the thigh or arms.
  That way, the leg or arm is looser that just from the lengthening stretch,
and the areas it connects to get looser as well, because the pulls
on the bones of the pelvis, for instance, the bone that also connects
to the belly and back, will then be less pulling on that bone. 
And that bone is then less pulling and tightening on the abdominal & back muscles.
Also, the next lengthwise stretching of the opened thigh area goes further.
The twisting releasing, which opens up more of the bone, joint and muscle
 range of motion, increases agility.

There's also a way to rotate the torso in a sequence to get all the areas
 to lengthen more, and a way to open the ribs and abdomen in front,
as well as stretch the spine in back more precisely & thoroughly than most people do
in yoga spinal twist positions.
You learn to guide subtle body movements to pull at specific areas
one after the other.  This spreads the collagen fibers back out and the areas
you have done this in will be longer and stay longer.

Why we do multiple areas and multiple lines.
This is different from the isolated stretching methods used by others
because we are lengthening the fascia bodysuit that everyone has.
Our fascial shape, including length, is made of thousands of tiny collagen fibers
throughout a gelatinous fluid that surrounds all the muscle fibers
& wraps up the whole muscle. 
It is this fibrous fascia filler & wrappings that become the tendons that connect
the muscle belly to the bones across the joints. 
And with activity, including athletics, and also tension, collagen fibers bunch up
closer together through the whole muscle and in many muscles,
more & more  When you get longer from Bodywork & stretching, it is because
you are spreading the collagen fibers back out from their bunched up locations.

So to both make the muscle fiber and nerve tightness 'let go' and to then
lengthen back out the distance between the many collagen fibers through the whole muscle,
we are relengthening the many areas of each muscle,
 and the groups of muscles that interconnect with one another. 
If you only lengthen the calf or the thigh, or in one line down the middle
of the back of the leg, you are only getting some of the distances to relengthen
 while the other areas of the muscle are just as short as before.

In addition, if you only try to lengthen the one muscle in a line,
then the shortened other muscles in the next lines, are still pulling the area tight. 
This is because fascia is like  a big body suit all over the body,
and tightness anywhere makes its pull felt in all other areas.
It is also because the tightness of nearby muscles pulls with their tendons
on the bones that this muscle is connected to, and that makes the same joints
still tight and keeps a tight muscular pull throughout the whole multi muscle length.

Here is an example of my method in this regard.
There is one kind of back of leg stretching standing,
and one lying down, that are unique groupings of areas.,
and I add a modified, one legged yoga position (to get more length out of it
 in the standing leg),  and some other yoga and Physical Therapy stretches
that again focus on the section by section collagen fiber spreading back out apart.

I significantly improve the calf stretch type of position
Not only do we do an extra front to back
 pushing of the calf as we are doing the lengthwise pulling,
we also do the same technique for the ankle-heel, Achilles tendon,
behind the knee, and lower and upper thigh, as well as in the belly of the calf.
In addition, we do the foot and leg turning at different angles to get more of this deeper modified calf stretch (leg stretch)

I have people do stretches in an order according to how tight they are and
in which sequence, --  we find by doing, will give way better.

It is the unique positionings of the body,
the focus of your attention inside the muscles you want to lengthen,
and the longer lines of interconnected muscle groups that
enables this stretching to go further and easier.
Plus, there is a repeated set of stretches that keeps lengthening legs & back
as we add additional areas of stretching.

By understanding the alignment & misalignment of the legs
to torso to head and neck, we can lengthen multiple areas of the whole body

 so the zig zagging of the structure front to back and side to side gets less and less.
It is this tilt one way and tilt the other way that keeps the body tight as one part pulls back on the others, and vice versa.  This is to try to keep you upright against
the downward pull of gravity.  But that gravity is only pulling you down
because the parts of the body are tilted to it.

And importantly, you should know that the fascia grows
into the positions the muscles, which keeps holding that shape,
 as well as the tightness is repeatedly
bunching up the collagen fibers.

So if you can't stand upright easier and straighter after stretching
or Bodywork, then your body parts will tilt back to the compensating other side,
  Even if you had loosened the legs, for instance, or the back,
then the body will be forced to retighten in the shape it did before,
just to compensate again for the parts that were not lengthened.

Spreading apart the positions of many collagen fibers,
Lengthwise and across the muscles,
coupled with the arrangement of the stretches & what each stretch's
purpose is  in the structural shape,
makes this system effective.
Longer On-Site Article   Improving Athletic & Physical Performance with this Approach

As I mentioned above, this creates
Significantly More Muscle Length 'Between' the Joints,'
as well as at the joints, that you normally 'think' is looseness.

So this longer   Belly-of-the-Muscle   LENGTH  ---  frees joints to go further.

increases flexibility at the joint ,& even in the way the muscles themselves move.
individually and in coordinated groups.
The muscle-joint movements move together:
the bellies of the muscles lengthen and rotate along with the joints themselves.
  So there is greater range of motion that is also more integrated one muscle to another.
And the whole body functions more as the properly functioning system
it is designed to be --- once a lot of the shortened fascia is re-lengthened.

This is also what fixes structural misalignment ,caused by short muscle fascia,
including the structural misalignment that creates tightening the back

which is caused by pulling from other shortened body areas, especially legs.
This is THE MAJOR CAUSE of developing back problems.
E-book Overview & Excerpt Page    Understanding & Fixing the Underlying Cause of Back Pain

Lengthening the Fascia of the Bellies of the Muscles increases the muscle power
because the muscle fibers can then move a longer distance
 & more of them in the muscle groups are "organized with each other."
Lengthening the muscle belly also removes spasm pains
& the chance of pulling a muscle or tendon.

After the 3rd session I
jumped a whole foot further than I had been doing
all season -
Mike Powell, World record Holder - Long Jump

After one long session my 3 week long hamstring tightness was gone
& 2 days later
I equaled my best time for that time of the season, done 3 years earlier -

Christina Cahill, 6-time British Women's 800-1600 meter champion

After 5 hrs Bodywork, my chiropractor could get vertebrae in

After the first 2-hr session, my upper back pain was totally gone,
I was looser & more upright & when I got home I immediately increased

- 30 yr old weight lifter.

The Typical Problem
People who have had Muscle Tightness & Pain  
And have been Stretching, Getting Massage, Chiropractic, etc
& it doesn't help much or it doesn't last
Then they are not lengthening the fascia - systemically
 - & not in the body's front or legs.

What's needed is
You need to spread fascia all over the body, not just locally,
to re-lengthen the "interconnected muscles"
 & your top-bottom & left-right "zig zags"

THEN people get noticeable, fast,  increasing & lasting improvements.

My Effective Solution
The KEY is to spread out the accumulated shortness, or bunch-up,
of the collagen fibers in the fascia parts of the muscles,
& the way to do this well is to lengthen small sections at a time,
going methodically along long lines of interconnected muscles. 
My exercises teach this.
Easy to do, not straining, yet powerful good effects.

This "method" of "fascia fiber spreading"
 increases people's other stretches' effectiveness as well.
So instead of just isolated muscle stretches, we do section by section
spreading apart of the collagen fiber bunch-up people have had for years.

My Method automatically teaches you about your body's misalignments & how to fix them,
Including the Cause of Lower Back Pain.

All our muscles and bones are interconnected
& tightness even in a distant area, pulls on many other places.
So as more of the Body is relengthened, all the areas get freer
& can stretch even longer themselves.
You discover this "happy fact" with my phone coaching,
& when you do the DVDs at home.

Low Back Problems

These are almost always caused by accumulated
shortness of the fascia in the legs and abdomen,
& your whole body gets pulled forward in the legs
& has to lean backward in the back,
with your internal muscles getting strained and pulling
your back vertebrae too close together.

In order to keep you upright and not falling forward,
the back of the legs up to the back of the head gets really tight,
and your hips and knees get pushed too far forward
& get un-natural strain put on them.

It is a classic case of overall body misalignment
from accumulated shortened fascia -
& for most people, there IS a WAY to FIX it !

Explanation from Lou Gross
This Bodywork


This creates immediate rapid (in the first 5 minutes & 1st hour), 
      and long term improvements
      (lasts for weeks, months & years) 
It re-lengthens, in very large amounts & very deeply, 
   the accumulated "fascia" shortness that creates muscle
   tightness,  that has increased over time, like years and
   decades, or even recently in training or recreational sports.
It's the shortness in the body's physical fascia tissue
    that is bunched up.  
Lengthening it with this approach fixes backs, posture &

DVDs for Do it yourself & with family & local massage therapist

This is NOT a bang-into-you painful deep massage.
We actually spread the muscle-fascia of your muscle system
   "horizontally," along the length of the muscles,
   so they are restored to their more original longer length.

There is then more muscle power
Because you can use more of the muscle fibers' lengths
   & the joints then get noticeably looser.
Tightness caused pain is reduced & even disappears.
And there's less chance of injury pulling or spasm.

Plus, it enables chiropractic & massage to do more,
   as more of the body is accessible,
   and  the muscles are longer so vertebrate can move
   & be  adjusted.
And they stay in much longer since the chronic pulls that
    were pulling them out, are now relengthened.

Feels Good -- Fast Significant Improvements Immediately
Long Lasting -- Cumulative over the whole body
Posture gets a lot straighter fairly quickly - & stays

2.  See this Page if you want,
   A "structure" checklist - what info to provide Lou
SCAN THIS & mention SOME pertinent info appropriate to you.
You do NOT have to FILL OUT out everything on this checklist
 - just tell me what's the issue,
-  what has helped or not helped
-  how long you've had it

Mainly I want to know
...what your shape looks like (leans, tilts, twists)
and where you have tightnesses or pains,
...what accidents you had or if it is a pain or tightness just creeping up and getting worse. long it has been there,
...& if massage, chiropractic, stretching etc help or not, and if they last.
...Also outline a few areas of most significant tightness or pain & mention what stretches you do. 

 & I'll ask the rest of the questions & explain what's going on for you,
usually in 5-15 mins. 

If you are ATHLETIC you probably also have decent fascia and your structure is probably short in the fascia from muscle tightness
and "bunched up" -- plus like other people, you'll have shortness
caused zig zags
My unique stretches (as well as hands-on) help this a lot.
See Descriptive Testimonials
Olympic Athlete, Coaches, Recreational 10K & Marathon Runners

I'll repeat info on the phone but it helps if you get some kind of idea about fascia shortness and muscle tightness - and zig zags in your structure causing tightness all over. 
Then I'll tell you what to read after we talk

3. Q & A about Tightness, Backs, etc & Misalignment
This is also helpful, to learn about your body tightnesses
   & how it is bent or twisted, or in pain.

It's long but it does tell you a lot about "why"
   -- what's going on causing Backs, Necks, Tightness
Talks about how zig zags in the structure & tightness
  are an overall pattern that causes many problems,  including Backs.
  We call them typical misalignments & over the whole body
      it's called- the standard or basic imbalance -- & when it's extreme,
      people feel tightness & pain.

These are E-mail Dialogues with an athlete trainer
    about common structural  issues.
I recently re-read it & it's just what I e-mail back and forth
    to a lot of people   --  Just as if I was in person talking to you.

We correct these starting in the first stretch sample sessions,
  & the first hands-on hour or two


4. Back Problems -See Back Book Menu & Ordering Page
Helpful to read at least
the Long Blue Narrative on this page - also can read the testimonials & what causes back pains and the method of the Bodywork

"Understanding the Underlying Cause of Back Problems
   & How to Fix It"
"Lou, Your Back Book offers a very clear understanding
       of the problems that are manifesting by the millions
       in this country. "
       JK, physicist and back problem patient for years

There are standard shortnesses and misalignments in almost all people that, when a lot, cause back problems, hip problems, tight hamstrings and neck & shoulder tension.
 They CAN BE improved fairly quickly & easily for many people.

This Book gives Specific Explanation of Lower & other Back Tightnesses
   & How the Structural integration Hands-on & Stretching
   Methods work to fix the back, neck & rest of the body,
   while making the whole structure looser than it's been in
   a long time, years, for many people.

This is a PhD Physiologist & MD created method that has been in use by practitioners throughout the world for decades.  I have been doing it hands-on for 25 years, & I developed stretching exercises & a fascia lengthening method to simulate & improve upon the hands-on treatments, plus, I have Instructional DVDs that teach you & others how to do the hands-on in your own home, athletic area or practitioner's office.

You can read what's in the
DVD's 1,2,3 Package & 4,5 - Info Page
You can read Bodyworker-Practitioner Testimonials, for My DVD's


As a Structural Integration Bodyworker I have developed
stretching that has worked for people for 25 years. 

It lengthens the fascia part of the muscle system in interconnected lines of muscles so that the pulls down from other areas are removed and the area of pain and other tightness is released.  People feel lighter, taller & looser.

Comes with unique, detailed 100 & 200 pg
Informative E-books.

Hi Lou,  
I received the DVD's on Saturday - they're perfect !  
So easy to follow, and so informative. 
From Ms. LZ in Arizona USA

Lou's DVD Videos are a good value.

From a Health Club Owner in the UK (England)

This is NOT a yoga nor aerobics method, but I & others have used this method, & some of these stretches, to improve our yoga & aerobics.

It IS a Structural Integration Bodywork method, to lengthen the fascia & learn how to stretch "actively," not passively, in long groups of muscles, section by section, with your mental awareness right inside the fascia-muscles you are stretching
.  And by using other parts of your body as a lever while you are in special positions.

This Stretching definitely helps the hands-on Structural Integration Bodywork sessions.  Doing them in between sessions, the Bodyworker can often do more in the session.
And in the stretching people get more results, in lengthening & in aligning their bodies.  Definitely, the hands-on helps the stretches do more, too.

Both the DVDs & My Free Stretch Coaching Introductory Session are Personal One-to-One FASCIA Anatomy Instructions & Simultaneous IMMEDIATE Body Improvement.

There's a few paragraphs more about the method just below.  A New, improved "Method," for ALL Stretching

I explain on the phone  with "making sense" talking
 - & then you also see it with stretches as I coach you,
   paying close attention for your own body.

Besides feeling better, people learn two major things


A lot of people
have stretched away their back pain at home & for low cost, & some even did it right in the phone consult, including a professional golfer.  At the same time you help BACK pain, you also help HIP problems.  

Here's the re-lengthening concept

If you make your LEGS longer on the insides (medial), & front, & make the front of your torso longer & more uplifted, as well as lengthen some of the tightness you created in the back of the legs, then you can get the torso to sit over the legs, instead of arching backward in the low back and maybe bent over in the upper back, chest and neck. 

When you have to arch backward, you simultaneously have to push your hips forward & that makes tightness & misalignment in the hip joints, too, plus even more tightness in the thighs and legs, including the hamstrings.

Lengthening the front & front of legs is key to loosening backs better.
You can Read  Combines with Chiropractic & Improves Its results
For more info about improving backs  Back Fix Book Info Page

Often helps prevent surgery, like disk replacement, if the back is lengthened soon enough, & it usually helps the surgery to be more successful after the needed disk is replaced.
You can Read
 Helps orthopedists & prevents unnecessary surgery


This Stretching "Method" Improves ALL Stretching:  greater length, more loosening, easier, & it lasts longer because you're stretching the interconnected muscle lengths, too.

You can Read   Different from & Compatible with Massage
Massage can make it easier for me to stretch with my own body, because it can break up the muscle-nerve tightness, & then the fascia spreads easier.
    but regular massage  is not a fascia lengthening process.

You can also use specific stretches at brief times in the day and at work, and also integrate them into your longer workouts.  People have said they help with car driving, desk sitting, leaning over a computer & typing, & lots of walking.


You'll probably learn things about your body structure that almost NO Pilates teacher may have told you.

This do it Yourself Method gets similar results to my own Professional Bodywork.  Here are some testimonials.   Many more testimonials Links

 My throws are stronger & more accurate
             High School Baseball Shortstop

One of my sophomore basketball players had just
         one 2-1/2 hr session.  I'd noticed all season that
         he had trouble dragging his legs up and down the
I noticed in practice in the very next 2 days
         that he moved much more efficiently.
  And he
         himself felt his legs were much looser.
               College Basketball Coach

My best Long jumper had been out of practice
          for a whole week with low back pain.  After a
          single 1-hour treatment he was back in practice
          with no pain & more looseness.  During the State
          Championships he got a cramp in one leg that
          would not release.  After a 45 minute treatment
          in the trainer's tent, with his next jump he took
          second in the meet.
             College Track Coach

A senior baseball catcher had been receiving
          electrical stimulation healing for a week for the
          triceps muscle in his upper throwing arm with no
          correction of the pain.  Lou found the arm & his
          whole body were very tight.  After 1-1/2 hrs
          treatment the arm pain was totally gone and
          was still gone a week later.
             College Head Trainer, also taking the Olympic Team
                  Training Course.

        Now I don't feel beat up nor have to see the
          chiropractor after each strong workout.
             Olympic Team Alternate Long Jumper

 They taught us that running is faster when the
           body is relaxed.  Now I can do it.
                Olympic Team 400 Meter Runner

I didn't even know my feet were tight.  I just
          came in for hip tightness.  Now I can also push
          off with my toes.
                6-Time Big-8 College Conference 400 Meter Running
                Champion (Now the Big 12)

Now I pass people at the end of a marathon,
           going up hill, and I am completely recovered
           after just 2-days.  I am 3-months ahead of the
           Runners' World magazine schedule & this is the
           only thing I've been doing differently from what
           they say.
 Dentist. 28 yr old Marathon runner

       Even from the first sessions, a tremendous sense
          of looseness, relaxation and lightness appeared
          in each of the areas of my body that were
          worked on, including my legs.  My neck & lower
          back problems have significantly improved, too.
        Now after hours and hours on the tennis court, I
          usually do not feel the stiffness and tightness
          that I used to feel on an almost daily basis.
            Country-Club Tennis Pro

         I'm age 36, training for my 4th Olympics.
         I'd had chronic Achilles tendon tightness and
           operations for tears on both ankles.  The
           bodywork corrected the tightness in my calves
           and they now move fluidly.  Scar tissue had built
           up & that also got broken up. 
         My thighs are also looser and lighter, they move
           easier and faster & I've noticed I'm picking up
           speed in my training.
 The treatment broke up &
           loosened the scar tissue under my buttocks at
           caused from pulling too hard during weight lifting
           about 2 years earlier, tearing the upper
           hamstring.  And it was never the same.  Every
           time I did weight lifting for it, it would hurt.
           Now, it feels a lot better.
       My torso feels looser and more flexible & an
           ongoing point of pain is now gone. 
         I'd also had a misalignment
so that when I lifted
           my right leg it didn't come up straight but twisted
           outward after it was half way up
That, too, was
        This all was accomplished in three, 3-hr
            treatments.  I made finalist in the Olympic Trials.

Mike Powell, WORLD RECORD HOLDER Long Jump
(from many 2-hr and 4-hr Bodywork sessions)

            Lou makes my body work the way it's supposed to work.  The treatments allow me to do what I do, easier, and more fluently.  And when I really have to work hard or dig deep, I'll be able to go further.
            After each session my flexibility, range of motion, speed and balance are all better.  When I get to the warm-up, that's when I realize how much more I have.  My range of motion is so increased that it takes me some workouts to get it integrated with my strength and technique.  And when that happens my overall performance gets even better.
            After the third session, I had the best workout I ever had in my life and jumped 28-2, almost two feet longer than last years best in a workout. Even when I'm tight, I've jumped 27-6.  The looser I am, the easier it is to get out there.  I had the speed and strength before, but the flexibility I've gotten from the treatments allows me to utilize it.

            I also don't have to work at control as much; now it just happens, and I only have to work on the areas that need work.
           My overall body positioning is also better, and the way I walk and stand is better

These DVD's teach Massage Therapists, Trainers, Yoga Teachers - Even MD's, DC's & Nurses
who are used to thinking neuro-muscularly, & locally,
how to also see the body as an interconnected unit,
a fascial putty & bone-muscle system of
"whole body architecture."

Both the Stretching & Hands-on How-to
   Give you a more powerful tool to remove tightness

It is especially fast in removing large amounts of tightness,
    & it's long lasting.
With fascial, soft connective tissue manipulation and this
    fascia stretching method, a person's structure can be
    systematically reshaped for pain erasure & significantly
    increased performance, & rather quickly,

You will see how to lengthen local tightness 
  & lengthen the Interconnected shortness of other muscles,
  where it does not feel tight or in pain,
  & also lengthen the Misalignment & tightness,
     BOTH OF WHICH ARE continuing to cause more tightness,
     where it hurts, such as tight legs & abs cause pain in
     backs, hips & knees.

of TWO World Record Holder Men's Jumpers, &
The 6-time British Women's Middle Distance Champion, & I
fixed the back of the #11 Women's Doubles Player In the world.  I also treated other Olympic & professional athletes & college coaches.

After 8 hrs of Lou's Bodywork, I was 2-3 months ahead of the Runner's Magazine Program Achievement Schedule, I was passing people at the end of a Marathon, going up hill, I had no change in gait from it, I could play Golf 6 hrs later on the same day, & I felt totally recovered in just 2 days.
   28 Yr Old Dentist, Athlete, Marathon Runner

A Massage therapist found a limiting tightness in my hamstring 3-weeks earlier but couldn't loosen it up.  I had been experiencing this restriction, too.  Lou did a long afternoon Structural Integration session and it both removed the hamstring tightness & made the rest of my body more open, longer and more flexible, too.  My Performance went up in an elite race just 2-days later.
  6-Time British Women's Middle Distance Running Champion
       & 3-Time Olympian

I'd had chronic lower back pain for 50 years and had tried acupuncture, massage, chiropractic, diet and been to famous doctors.  This bodywork was the only thing that really helped, removing the pain completely for weeks and months at a time.

     Ms I.G., Artist/Homemaker, age 76

I was absolutely ready to schedule back surgery for a severe extruded disk in my lower back at L5-S1 (12 millimeters).  I also had sciatica in the right leg for the previous 2 months.  I had 5-hrs of Bodywork in two sessions.  About two weeks after the second session the pain completely subsided and I had full use of my right leg.  Two years later I am still well.
     Mr. N.S., Interior Designer & Firm Owner, age 38

I stand up straighter & breathe deeper.  I see further from side to side, turning my neck much further.  I used to get a lot of pain in my hands & now it feels tremendously different, unbelievably so.
  Before Louís 2-hour treatment on my arms and back, I didnít feel like doing anything.  It was all a chore.  Now I am enjoying making cookies and cake for my son.

A NEW Stretching & Hands-on Approach
Why it works better, &
How it can make your other stretching
work better, too.

       A Key reason My Methods seem to work when what people have already tried didn't work as well, is because as a Structural Integration Bodyworker, I've been trained to know which deep & interconnected muscles need to be lengthened.
       And then,  as a college degreed engineer, I teach people a specific body structure "engineering way" to do both hands-on & stretching movements, to lengthen all those local & interconnected muscles in their "fascia" parts. 
      It's an educational information & a how-to-do-it for-what-results instructional approach, rather than just a "going to a class with everybody else, following along, approach."
Once your tightness is much looser and longer, you will be able to do, yoga classes, athletics and so forth more, and enjoy it better.  AND, you can make these other activities more effective for your stretching by using these interconnected-muscle, fascial spreading "methods" from my system.
   What about Pilates' lengthening?  Pilates helps a lot, but I always check people & see they can be "helped" by both increased lengthening in the bellies of the muscles & by creating a better structural alignment.
         In Pilates, too, the instruction is "Position like this," and "Stretch it." 
         But no one is telling you, bring your mind's attention here, and adjust your pull with this other part of the body, as well as inside the part you are stretching, so you get right there, and then adjust a little further this way, and then that way, to make the other parts of these muscles lengthen more, & now go on to the next area of muscles inch by inch in your full length of the stretch.  What do you feel?  Test it out like this?  If it isn't going fully, go back to here.
           And now go back up through the areas and pull in the opposite sequence.  In fact, go to the opposite side of the body, and instead of trying to bend and stretch this new side, while contracting the first, let's try to lengthen all the sides together.  And so forth.

         So in my method, we use a special "positioning," based on structural architecture & we emphasize a unique mind-into-body, very meticulous, section by section re-lengthening  of the fascia in the bellies of the muscles, for the whole body sheath & in-between organs.  We pull the collagen fibers of the fascia into a longer distance.  We also do a unique separating of the bellies of each muscle from their gluing onto the bellies of other muscles next to them. 
   In this way, people always get much longer "length" sooner, & that increases flexibility, and strength, plus balance and power.  It even increases endurance and reduces recovery time. 

          Olympic Level athletes said that after my hands-on, they could run faster & be more relaxed at the same time, as well as being more relaxed, taller & straighter just walking around the house.  Seniors & Business people got immediate, deep stress removal & felt deeper ongoing relaxation, stress "immunity" & had better sleep.
          A very stressed 16 year old said even just the first stretches on the DVD always calm her down right away.
          And a number of people have said that even these gentle stretches are ALSO a very good workout.

So this method is not to replace your yoga and pilates, not even your massages, but to complement them, that is, to make all your stretching work better by making use of how your muscles are constructed; and very significantly, to show YOU, with your own body experience how to make them more effective right when you do them.

       "I  was told by my doctor that I probably have Fibromyalgia, was put on a dairy-free / wheat-free diet, and supplements such as fish oil and vitamin C (for inflammation). Some mornings my legs seemed almost paralyzed, and it would take 15 minutes to loosen up all my joints before getting out of bed. After shuffling and hobbling around for the first hour, I would gradually begin to limber up enough to make it through the day.
        I discovered Lou's website on the internet, and called him.  Lou was very patient, asked questions, and listened. Then he guided me through a process of stretches over the phone. They were a bit intense but gentle at the same time. I was sweating heavily  and drank water - it seemed like a lot of 'junk' was sweating out of me.
        Over a  couple hours on the phone I learned ;  !.) how to make immediate changes in my diet    2.) how to do the stretching on my own  3.) how to release muscle tension caused by trauma.    
       The next day my legs had improved. I continued the stretching throughout the day. The second day my legs were noticeably different. I could get out of bed right away, the pain had lessened, and I wasn't as tired. I am very impressed with this technique. Months of chiropractic and  massage therapy did nothing to affect change  the way this has, and I  actually feel hopeful for the first time in months.
        I would like to recommend Lou to anyone who feels they suffer from the same condition. Lou is also a very compassionate person to talk to.   
L.Z. Phoenix

Lou Coached me thru some of his stretches for 25 minutes - right there in an herb shop relaxation area, and my chronic hip pain was gone, my leg tightness was much better, and I felt taller, more upright & more flexible all over.  And I have been stretching & getting body treatments that did not fix this.

A New Stretching & Hands-on Method - Short Article

    Usually Re-lengthens a lot of Tightness & Often Helps Backs Loosen & has Removed or reduced a lot of people's Pain right on the phone.  Then you can do more over time & improve further.

Helps people understand & get a feel for doing other stretching more effectively, too.  Where to stretch first, then second, & how to get more muscles to lengthen than most people seem to have been doing.  And where to do special hands-on, where the stretching does not work as well.  Then hands-on also makes the stretching easier after that.

     An orderly systematic releasing approach based on the Bodywork System & then using this "method" of fascia spreading & interconnected muscle groups stretching with yoga & other kinds of stretches.  People learn about what is causing which tightness - and you can even get my inexpensive Ebooks that explain a lot more for you, too.

     TEACHES YOU Structural Integration techniques & a whole body treatment understanding, how each muscle and body area affects others, so you can correct the whole tightness & improve the pain and back, neck, etc.

The combination of THIS stretching & the Hands-on works better than each individually.

    What You should Get for Stretching Thoroughly
           (overseas please add $5 shipping & PayPal $5)
Just the Stretching combo (1,2) is great if you
        already get deep massage or Fascial
        Lengthening Bodywork & they do your head.
        Especially for stress & back tightness, loosening
        the head & hands on fascial manipulation is
        very helpful. 

From seeing clients' improvements & watching
         Video 3 again, I notice My Hands-on method
         combined with Stretching method is better than
         just the stretching alone.
 So I made a discount.

  2.  Add Video 3 - Hands-on for yourself - 
  adds the hands-on to the stretching,
   including Bodywork on the Head
   - Very Helpful. 

       "Just from doing the head hands-on in Video 3, I sleep
           better," said a web designer, age 50.

      analysis of the basic imbalance causing back,
      neck, shoulder, & hip problems plus head
      tightness, & a method to release emotional
      tension even from deep inside & what got stuffed
      into the legs. 
   Also directions on what needs to
      be lengthened for cross legged meditation,
      legs looser & back easier to sit up straight.  You
      can apply this instruction to enabling you to
      be able to sit easier with better posture in the
      car or bus, at school or work, at meal time, etc.

        Substitute Video 3 for Stretching Video 2:
    Get Stretching Video 1 - for great lengthening,
        & Hands-on for Yourself Video 3,
        plus an Ebook, w/Consult-analysis 
  This does help.  Video 3 teaches you how to do
        hands-on for yourself a little at a time, through-
        out the day, in front of the computer, while
        relaxing watching TV, riding in a car, etc. 
        The loosening for the face, eyes & jaw as well
         as hands helps remove accumulated strain.
     The stretching can also be done throughout the
        day in 1-minute to 5-10 minutes at a time,
        including to loosen arms, legs, neck & torso
        in the car, on the job & adding it to your
        workout routine. 
     The twist stretches in Video 3 help separate
        muscles from each other in the legs, pelvis &
        some more torso, so they stretch further with
        the elongation stretches & you feel looser.
       They also stretch & loosen the internal
      At the end of Video 3, there's a unique method
        for releasing emotional tension & feelings or
        thoughts that I use with my clients & there is
        also an explanation about the zig-zag
        imbalances we get, & how to help correct them
      And if you are a cross legged meditator, or in
        yoga, there is instruction on where to lengthen
        to make the legs looser & to be able to have the
        back more upright & easier.

     head, arms, upper chest for the
first hour
Then most of a
second hour to lengthen legs, pelvis & torso front more, including abdominals, to create alignment to help backs release more tension, stand straighter, & not fall back into the tightness & arch as much. 
     Tight legs (that we all get) keeps low back
        tightness & tension all the way up to the neck
        & head.  Tight legs & arms even keep chests
The Back Book Explains a lot of this.

      This is an actual stroke by stroke hands-on
        session, showing just how to hold the hands,
        where to push, in what order, what
        improvements you want to look for & how to
        look, & even a couple complementary
        stretches to add to the hands-on.
      It helps in athletics.
      The first half on back, neck, head, arms is with
        the person sitting in a chair, on a bed, even
        sitting on the ground outside.  You can adapt
        it for someone lying down if they are
        bedridden. So you can do it all or in part as a
        tune up for family, friends, at work, at the
        health club.  You can do elderly parents,
        spouses when they come home from work,
        & it's great to relieve back tension & stress,
        even helps headaches with the head, back &
        neck loosening. 
      And on the face it makes a lot of people look
        younger.  It removes tightness from a lot of
        driving & computer work.

      Do Video 4 again & you can get deeper into more
         muscles, to make the treatment do more.

Seniors & Structural Illness Improvements
      Doing what's on Video 4, I have helped people
         who have had a stoke or have Parkinson's,
         MS, Cerebral Palsy or are confined to a
         Wheelchair.  They get more mobility &
         flexibility, better blood & lymph circulation,
         greater relaxation, & often even better
         expressiveness & happiness.


        TO WORK ON YOU? 
         AS WELL AS VIDEO 4.
           Legs Video Mini-Course  by itself.
             Great for Dancers, Athletes, Seniors, Backs

This is also VERY HELPFUL for Emotional & Trauma Release
   processing - as the leg tightness we all get, holds the
   belly, chest & head tight.  Loosening deep in the legs
   I always found releases deeper emotions & blockages,
   & even removes stress from the torso and head - a lot.

1. Stretching DVD's: 
    2-hrs Hands-on for first relieving &
    improving backs,
then fixing the whole
    structure to fix the back even better & make
    the fix last longer. Also, necks, arms,
    shoulders, then rest of body loosening &
    lengthening - with explanation of overall

A mini course on improving overall body
    alignment & muscle group integration.
OK to get just Video 1.


1.) Immediate 2-hr Mini Course for fixing backs, improving alignment, releasing heads & stress, arms
& some legs.
2.) Immediate 2-hr Mini Course for deep leg & pelvis loosening & lengthening, that also releases low backs & abdomens further.
3.) Immediate 1-hr Course for Self-Bodywork for you & your clients-friends-teammates.
4.) Immediate 2-hrs Structural Integration Bodywork & Fascial Lengthening & Widening Stretching method.
Fixes tightness & pain, incl backs, by itself, & interspersed with the hands-on how-to makes both work even better.

And, you get Lou's Before & After you get the DVDs & Books to refer you to specific chapters & stretches, teach you - with tour own body, in what order to do them for you & your clients-patients, & how to apply your hands & positions even more than is already clearly shown on the DVDs.  And the books are very detailed & even have educated Olympic Class Athletes.

These DVD's & my phone consults & Books teach
Massage Therapists, Trainers, Yoga Teachers, Chiropractors, even Nurses & MD's
who are used to thinking neuro-muscularly, and locally, how to also see the body as a big, interconnected unit, a fascial putty, structural system of "whole body architecture.
With fascial, soft connective tissue manipulation and this stretching method, a person's structure can be systematically & rather quickly, reshaped for pain erasure & significantly increased performance.

You see how to lengthen local tightness &, importantly, the Interconnected tightness and the Misalignment tightness that's continuing to cause more tightness where it hurts.

Learn a Fast , Comfortable Way to Improve Structural SHAPE by learning how to manipulate the Fascia Body Suit.

Practitioners can incorporate actual Structural
   Integration Fascia Manipulation Sessions
   into their own treatment sessions:

      a.  Massage therapy
      b.  Physical Therapy
      c.  Athletic & Personal Training
      d.  Chiropractic & Osteopathy
      e.  Prep & Follow up for Orthopedics
      f.  Yoga Classes
      g.  Health Club Aerobics
      h. Home strength workout loosening

MY "fascia" Structural Stretching is VERY EFFECTIVE
     1.  Teaches you about structural alignment
     2.  Teaches you how to lengthen fascia
     3.  Fixes tightness & some back pain by itself
     4.  Increases softening, loosening & lengthening
             of the next massages & Fascia Hand-on

2. Hands-on How-to DVD's:
      1. Teaches people immediately - low cost.
      2. Follow Lou Stroke by Stroke
      3. Explanation by Explanation.

      4. Actual Live, total sessions you can do.
This is NOT an idea of this and that & then
             you integrate all these ideas into your
             own massages.  THIS takes you through
             actual, complete Structural Integration

Which Videos to Get & What They Teach You
      Why get DVD's 1,2,3 Package & When also 4,5

Free Consultation explains
Why you have your Pains & Muscle Tightness & shows as well as explains how to fix them.  You even get to try out the stretching before you decide to buy, &  after you buy, you get free ongoing support from me on your structure. 
     And both on the phone & in the videos, I teach you about your structure, so you're more knowledgeable about how to help yourself & how to do other people's videos & classes more effectively.
     I almost always know what's going on with     people & I ask specific questions about your structural shape, what you already do in work activity, work outs, stretching & even what your diet consists of. 
     Then we test how tight or loose your muscle  & fascia network is at the same time that we work to loosen & lengthen it.  There  is a sequence of areas to stretch for any particular condition.

   We analyze & de-mystify your issues related to your background experiences & describes the method to release them & why it works. 
Explains the methods & why the fascial loosening-stretching on the phone or hands-on in-person helps the Netherton-Reichian methods work easier, faster & more thoroughly.
     Also Refers you to more detailed article info on site.  Sample session & technique.  We talk about schedules and reasonable costs.  Can be done in more than one consultation for time needs.

Q & A about Tightness & the Basic Imbalance

     I call it a Structural Integration Bodywork Approach to Stretching. I modeled it after the Hands-On Bodywork & then used the Bodywork Principles to also get yoga & athletic type stretches to really do more.
     It is a unique approach that I call "Structural Integration - Fascia Re-lengthening."  It restores the length of the fascia soft connective
tissue in your muscles, which removes a lot of stress created tension, as well as athletically    created tightness & seniors' strain to get around.
It's not just a joint loosening method. It makes the actual bellies of your muscles     longer again, so that the joints feel looser & you gain power, strength & agility at the same time.
     It also lengthens groups of muscles that are supposed to work together, but we do the stretching by lengthening each little area after another.

Email Lou with brief Description of your condition
      --- A "structure" checklist - what info to provide Lou
OK to also phone

I've taught this method for 22 years, to young athletes, seniors into their 80's & people with significant muscle tightness & injury.
The problem I repeatedly have seen is that the purposeful act of pulling the collagen fibers of the fascia through the fluid isn't focused on. 
     So  if a person has his or her mind in the body & does indeed get the fibers to spread back out, & if you know to do this purposefully, & put your mind & stretching movement
into this additional factor, both the muscle lengths & the whole structural alignment get longer & straighter.

     THIS METHOD has often QUICKLY helped Back Pain, & Low Back Pain, Pinched Nerves & Sciatica, & pains & stiffness in other body areas, too,
      BECAUSE we are both making things     considerably longer in the local are we stretch, in the interconnected muscles they would have been pulling on & we are bringing the body's structural inter-relationships back to where they should be, including being straighter & having greater range of movement & interconnected coordination.

     If you already get massage and/or     chiropractic & even physical therapy, then you can try it & see for yourself how adding this    could help you achieve more, as it has for a number of people already. 
     It helps massage & chiropractic do more &    even exercise & weight work get greater     results when the fascia is lengthened; the muscle fibers can then operate more in their full lengths, other parts of the body are not tightly restricting them & a more organized structure's muscles work better together as a system.

     Helps Seniors move & feel better
     And if you're an Athlete or Yoga Practitioner, or you do Pilates, you can learn how to do your kind of movements in a way to get a longer stretch.

       I  was told by my doctor that I probably have Fibromyalgia, was put on a dairy-free / wheat-free diet, and supplements such as fish oil and vitamin C (for inflammation). Some mornings my legs seemed almost paralyzed, and it would take 15 minutes to loosen up all my joints before getting out of bed. After shuffling and hobbling around for the first hour, I would gradually begin to limber up enough to make it through the day.
       I discovered Lou's website on the internet, and called him. Lou was very patient, asked questions, and listened. Then he guided me through a process of stretches over the phone. They were a bit intense but gentle at the same time. I was sweating heavily  and drank water - it seemed like a lot of 'junk' was sweating out of me.

       Over a  couple hours on the phone I learned ; 
1.) how to make immediate changes in my diet    
2.) how to do the stretching on my own 
3.) how to release muscle tension caused by trauma.

      The next day my legs had improved. I continued the stretching throughout the day.
       The second day my legs were noticeably different. I could get out of bed right away, the pain had lessened, and I wasn't as tired.

        I am very impressed with this technique. Months of chiropractic and  massage therapy did nothing to affect change  the way this has,
and I  actually feel hopeful for the first time in months. I would like to recommend Lou to anyone who feels they suffer from the same condition. Lou is also a very compassionate person to talk to.   L.Z. Phoenix


These are very good stretches
you've shown me.
I can now stretch a lot further. 
English National Team TRACK & FIELD OLYMPIAN.

Not just another Yoga Video.  This is new. I've been
 doing and teaching yoga for 20 years.  I've been
trained by Ma Yoga Shakti.  And
I learned some
 new things from this video that I've now
 incorporated in my own yoga practice,
 the technique of how to get more length by taking
 my attention into the muscles and spreading the
fascia.  I also learned new positions in order to
lengthen more of my structure.
Co-Director, Yoga Shakti Residential Country Mission,

 As I watched Lou's DVD, I saw more effective
 ways to do the stretching positions I was already
 doing and I saw ways to stretch areas I never
  And I stretch daily.  The logic of Lou's
 better positions and method were immediately
 obvious.  This is indeed an outgrowth of his 20
 years Structural Integration Bodywork experience. 
 I found his information, manner of explanation and
 demonstrations all excellent.

The information is very good and the stretches do
 lengthen the myo-fascia. 
I felt better even from just
 the initial
, multi-position torso sequence.
"John Barnes Method" Myo-Fascial Release Therapist

I was impressed that you could fix the back without
 even touching it. 
I liked how Lou taught us to
 actually lengthen the fascia in the appropriate
.  It's obvious from his teaching that Lou is
 well educated in his field.
Massage Therapy Student, Kaiser College


      For the cost, or half the cost, of one Structural Integration Bodywork session, you can have 2-7 hrs of video that coaches you thru how to stretch a lot of your body, better; even how to do yoga stretching better. 
     And How to Do the Bodywork on Yourself and
get a lot of it from family, friends, or a local massage therapist.

And I have found people get noticeably more benefits from the hands-on Structural Integration sessions when they do this kind of stretching along with it.  I even use it in the session to pull  areas more, so my  hands can do more.   And I can pull a number of areas all
 together, taking advantage of what I have done
 with my hands.

     You can even get more benefit from your deep massages by adding this kind of stretching.  

     And through my links page you can find a Structural Integration practitioner in your area.

     It's a Body-Mind Negative Emotional Energy Releasing & Negative Thought & Belief Patterns - which simultaneously improves one's energies & loosens the structural muscles & organs as well.
     A Non-Traumatic, Conscious, & Very Thorough Method.
     Most methods give you new things to do, what I call behavior modification, while  this gets rid of what's in your way:  "Stuff" you picked up in the past, even when you don't remember it.  This also makes Behavior Modification & Personal Improvement noticeably easier, & one's abilities get stronger as well.

My rates are a lot cheaper than psychotherapy when it's out of your pocket.
And I can teach the methods to practitioners.

Noticeable Significant Benefits start in the first session and accumulate as more is cleared.  Whatever is cleared is gone permanently.

In Person Bodywork-Bodymind Sessions - Usually $100/hr - currently $80/hr
Typical L.A. West Side Bodywork alone 125-150

Multi-session Bodymind-Bdwk Rates
    lower. (Usually $90/hr - still $80/hr)
Some discounts to 70 even for single sessions.
Stretching & Self-Help Bodywork & Release
    Processing rates lower.
You get Structural Integration Bodywork
  & the Netherton-Reichian Therapy at the
  same time, often $100/hr each, plus free - more
  stretching & nutrition, plus meditation.

       by phone - woks well.

$50/hr    Sessions are usually 1, 1-1/2 or 2 hrs long. 
(I accumulate hrs - so eg:  1-1/2 and 2 - 3-1/2 hrs).
1st Hours cost a little more because I also do a lot to analyze at first & the work is usually charged at $80-$200/hour & I then make it more affordable for people who do a lot of the hours to get personal growth and long term issues accomplished. 
Some discounts to unemployed & low income
     I am rather generous to people who are
     dedicated and do a lot of hours, even if they
      have decent incomes.
 (Rates from others typically $75-$200/hr)

Includes the Structural Stretching & Reichian techniques along with the Netherton focus - and even some energy consolidation practice.  You can do these at home on your own, too.

I also teach you how to do some of this on your own while I am working with you.

Here are Details of the
Free Consultation &
The Ongoing Sessions

VERY EFFECTIVE & FAST, easy to do, significant, immediate, permanent, cumulative improvements.

I am very understanding, acknowledging, non-blaming, compassionate, communicative & explanatory
-- & I don't get shook up by ANY past traumas or behaviors.

I am also VERY focused & I know where you are body & mind & what to have you do and say next.

     I'll Explain How Negative & Upsetting Emotions Really! Get Stuck in the Body & How to Easily & Thoroughly Remove Them.
     It's quite different from what a lot of people think.  But I know my understanding is correct because my methods work 100% of the time, for 20 years already, and give much better results than the many methods other people have done.
     But, I do more than remove old trauma & emotions from the  body, which I do very well.  In addition, the Negative Messages of Your Mind are Often NOT YOUR messages.  They were put into you long ago by other people.  This method can get them out, non-traumatically.
     We remove negative belief and command systems,  And we change the form and quality of the body, thought patterns & its energy field at the same time, from the negative manifestation to a very positive and capable long term condition.

This is not just a body manipulation technique, or just an energy and tension removal - but we do release the body and release old tensions and energies, that people feel go out of them right in the session - even in a session over the phone. 
     I use my State-of-the-Art Structural Stretching techniques & Reichian therapy methods, as well as the unique and highly effective school taught Morris Netherton Techniques I have been using for 20 years. 

     Not EMDR, nor the usual Reichian, rebirthing,
hypnosis nor a re-living & repeating, going over it technique, like some Psychotherapists use.
     Not a conscious mind analysis either.  But your conscious mind does participate and you remain alert and in control during the entire activity. 
     Not hypnosis or hypnotherapy.  You can stop or pause any time, eat or go to the rest room, yet you can also remove more and more old stuff.  And you will be "present" and "centered" at the same time that you are emoting or acting the energies. 
     This is a gently controlled laboratory technique of finding and expressive-releasing the energies that got stuck inside you.  THAT removes them, in a rather non-traumatic way.

     You stay you, and at the same time, you do a processing technique to remove the old embedded energies from your body.

     Even the Reichian Therapy breathing, tensing & moving techniques I use are not intense. In THIS method, we have already loosened some of your fascia so the muscles are somewhat looser & the energy can flow out of them & up to your forebrain where your conscious mind can be aware of them & change the energies into the sentences the energies are implying, which is what you & others in the past episodes were saying, thinking, emoting or implying with your actions or attitudes. 
    So we use these techniques to squeeze more energy of the past episodes out of the body muscle & organ system.  I have invented some of my own that gets stored emotions out of the legs & abdomen where fears & angers are located, & that people don't get to as easily with just verbal processing.

So this is not a stirring up method to get you all overwhelmed with the emotions.  That does not cleanly release all the old energies. What we bring up, is removed from you right then.  In fact, what you're already had, for years, gets cleanly removed.
     This is a Focused, Dissolving-out Method in use for 45 years.  Immediate, permanent, cumulative results.  Significant clearing in each 1-2 hour session.  People's Bodies feel cleaner, more relaxed, and more open, without feeling so vulnerable as before.  People say it's been removed out of them.

     The result of THIS method is that people feel more confident & less tight to a deeper level inside them. 

     And the empty space inside them is now available for their own conscious, positive activities.  So they do more.

     I use the slogan, "We make the good parts of you bigger while we make the bad parts of you smaller."

     We "use" your consciousness & your brain's abilities as well as your awareness and physical condition.  And I give you information & insight verbally, as we move through old episodes and clean them out of you in a non-traumatic manner.  I coach you through the sequence of events in the old episodes, those that had their energy imprints stuck inside them. 
     We go step by step, line by line, and even if you did not remember the events or details, the energies of the body can be removed as they come to consciousness with the body loosening techniques we use.
     The big results are because we actually remove the embedded energies you picked up in tight, tense, fearful & stressful circumstances, even back through pre-verbal, infancy, birth & pre-natal times, even when you do not remember, & especially, when you do not remember, the events.  Your body has the old tensions and energies and with Netherton-Body techniques, your consciousness can access them and remove them.

Besides physical tension, it simultaneously removes emotional upset, depression, anger, flashbacks, fears, guilt, blocks, phobias, stored sorrow, even suicidal thoughts.

 As I said above, besides the energies & tightness, we simultaneously remove negative belief systems & negative commands from others, from those times, out of your unconscious mind & from the body structure & its energy fields. 
     This includes the attitudes and words that were said by abusers when they did bad things to you, or even from well meaning people while you were unconscious.  Further, we remove things you don't even remember were there, whether from an adult loss or from a childhood trauma. 

We even remove key episodes you didn't even know were there from infancy, birth, prenatal & the creative unconscious.  In these cases, we remove the negative feelings and even sentences, that your body absorbed energetically, without your thinking nor analyzing them, from Mother, Father, other adults and siblings and even doctors and nurses in the birthing experience & while you were still in your mother's womb or birth canal.
     We remove what went in as Direct Energy Implantation.  It did not go through the brain's analysis.  In fact, THE material that's in the subconscious causing the ongoing blocks and trauma is what did not get analyzed I the brain.  That's why we use this technique to access and get them out. We treat them for what they really are, foreign energies, not you; pollution.

      And we increase the quality of more & more of what you are.  By removing these tensions and other people's words and energies from your structure, the amount of you that is cleared gets larger, and you then have more space inside of you to use for yourself and your accomplishments.

     Almost anyone can do it, even if they had trauma for years, & people get better at it as the clearing out & overall improvements continue.

     As your clearing & transformation continues, I give you more in-depth, explanations about why we're doing it, and why you're feeling better at deeper levels of your body-mind.  I also give you a roadmap of what levels we'll be going through & how you'll increasingly benefit.

     Now that I've cleared out a very big trauma, (with 2, 2-hr sessions over the phone) I feel a LOT better & I feel confident that I'll be able to get all this life long painful & disturbing stuff out of me and gone.  I can see there is a light at the end of the tunnel. 
     I'd tried other methods, including going over and over the old event with the therapist.  That didn't really work.  I'd done other techniques that did help some, but I still had been filled with the same old stuff.  Lou's method actually removes the material & I felt it coming off. 
     I felt immediately better physically as well as emotionally & mentally.  And his explanations & support while we're doing the sessions is very helpful. 
     I'm lucky to have found him

     I've combined the methods of experts, it's simple to do, & rather non-traumatic.  I explain to your conscious intellect just what we're doing and why, it releases old stuck energies rather fast, you're conscious & alert when you do it, many people can feel the releasing as it goes on, the results are immediate and permanent for what we have dissolved away, and a lot of it can be done over the phone whether you're also a hands-on person or a new phone person.

     If you're used to Reichian, Bioenergetic, Kinesiological or other kinds of release processing, you'll appreciate this method, & see how it adds to what you already know & do.

     When we have a strong emotional experience, as with the loss of a loved one, or with a series of losses, our bodies absorb a lot of that emotional charge in the soft connective tissue & in organs & our cells' energy field. 
     My well established, school trained methods combine to remove this stored emotional energy in a straightforward & Non-Traumatic Way, whether it happened years ago or recently.


And it's nowadays hard to find people who do the Netherton processing, especially a Structural Integrator with a Reichian Therapy background, energy cleaning skills & a long term meditation-spiritual practice.  And someone who can, and will, work with you over the phone.

Summary of Testimonials

If there was a way I could make a living at it, I'd treat everybody I connect with, because I think everyone can benefit from Structural Integration, and so did the PhD Physiologist-Biochemist who developed the system.  

It not only
cures back pain & severe muscle tightness, it makes bodies, young and old, function a lot better, feel a lot better, & even look better.
top athletes said so.

Whether you live locally, travel to me, or have me travel to you, you can get a lot of benefits in a very short time, and it lasts. I specialize in 2-4 hour sessions and with 2-4 hours daily for 1-2 weeks.  My my own specially developed techniques allow me to do this versus 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hr sessions only once a week which is typical from others.

This site is loaded with
detailed information articles and booklets about it.  Just go to the menu at right & start reading from the top down.  You'll learn a lot in the first 10 minutes, and it gets better from there.
Unique, Highly Informative Books

I work in my local area, and I also provide a couple of fairly unique services that I've found helpful for many people.  As I said, I can do a lot of sessions in a week or two, even a few hours a day, so you don't have to wait for 3 days or a week for your next session, or take a month or two to see big results. 

See Holistic Professional Programs Below,
  for executive & others

And I will travel to you, have you put me up for a week or two, and treat you 3-4 hours a day.  If you ever consider having me for an intensive multi-session, multi-day visit, be assured that I will communicate with you, in-depth & often, so you become as comfortable with me as you are with the idea of the treatment.

When I do a travel trip to work, I can also set up group talks or workshops, & arrange to work on other people you know.

Pain, Tightness, Athletics

           My Structural Integration Bodywork has
successfully and repeatedly fixed back pain, severe back tightness & other structural pain due to tightness as well.  It often improves and even cures sciatica. 
           And my method of using Structural Integration really helps remove the structural causes of a large amount of back pain. 
Hence I nicknamed the knowledgeable approach, Back Fix Bodywork, and even titled my book this way.
           It's significantly re-lengthened chronic hamstring tightness
.& other leg and foot shortness.  From this, it's
fixed a lot of knee pain, Achilles tendon soreness and hip or pelvic misalignment.  In general, it helps pain and tightness in legs, pelvis. neck, shoulders, chests, sides, bellies, arms and hands.
           Structural Integration is specifically designed to remove tightness and tightness caused pains and misalignment throughout the whole body.  By lengthening many muscle groups in the fascia part of the muscles, the whole body gets longer, straighter, more erect, and looser.  And both anterior pelvic tilt and posterior pelvic tilt improve, which improves lower back pain, hip pain and tightness, pelvic tightness, even knee tightness.  People of all ages feel looser and more alive, and look even look younger and less stressed.
           People find their hands and fingers move more freely, and their arms and shoulders are lighter and looser.  They also breathe deeper.
           I have worked on seniors to age 91.  They gained better mobility and agility.  People say they "feel better" just moving around, even "younger."  They can walk faster and reach further, and they can get up and down easier.
           My youngest client was age 5. 
He, and his teenage sister became better in sports and were more helpful and outgoing.

           It's well known that Structural Integration increases Athletic Performance.
  And a lot of athletes, including golfers, have back pain.  A number of elite athletes and college coaches, including those with chronic lower back pain, have been very pleased with the results they received from my work.
           Tightness from working out, or from lack of movement (as with stroke, MS, & other conditions) has regularly been loosened. 
Working out on weight machines is a very common cause of tightness leading to lower back pain.
           Scar tissue can be broken up.  Injuries like pulled muscles can be prevented because the tissue is much longer again.  And injuries that occurred in tight muscular areas can be helped to heal faster because the pulls that caused the injuries are removed
This bodywork also helps healing because it increases circulation very deeply, and it removes a lot of old, hard waste products.
           Tight arms and shoulders from using crutches can also be loosened up.
           The Structural Integration treatment works very well in conjunction with strength building and physical therapy programs.
 People say it keeps them flexible as well as strong. 

             Besides the articles listed below, I always recommend, people with muscle tightness and tightness caused pain or stress, to read the menu section 5, My Most Commonly Recommended Articles for Structure and specifically the first four articles, and the next ones on different from massage and helps chiropractic.  Section 4 lists many categories of Testimonials, along with more articles on the Free Articles Page.

 If you have pain, or want to improve your athletic performance and expressiveness in sports or the performing arts, please review some of the articles below.  They'll help. Then feel free to e-mail or call me.  Besides Bodywork or stretching sessions from me, I have a booklet that explains how to find, interview and work with a practitioner.
 Note that Structural Integration principles and applications are employed in some other Bodywork practices and are part of the Postural Integration Bodywork system in which I have Master level certification.
             People who've already had some Structural Integration, and even deep tissue massage, or myofascial release have found they enjoyed my  treatments, and they got a lot out of each one.

  In this regard, I specialize in going very deep, comfortably,   This is what's often necessary to correct a lot of back pain and deep, long term tightness.  And it makes athletic performance that much better.

Stress, Tension, Emotional Release

  Structural Integration Bodywork is very effective for stress removal and helps tight heads. Loosening the many bones and muscles of the head increases comfort and relaxation in the entire body.  The many pieces of the head should move, as we breathe and when we express ourselves.  But they get very tight, especially during stress.  That adversely affects the back and neck, the nervous system, the ability to breathe deeply, all the internal organs, our emotional capacity, and our abilities to think clearly and process large amounts of information.
           In my own treatments for stress, I first do a lot on the head, neck, shoulders and back which makes a big improvement right away.  This also removes a lot of head trauma. 
In the standard 10-step Structural Integration recipe, the head would not get done much, if at all, until the 7th session.

           Stress and back pain are related.  Having back pain, in itself, can make us feel stressed.
           But we're also more susceptible to the effects of stress when we're already tightened up from the misaligned shape of the body. 
This shape, with a big arch in the lower back, often causes back pain, especially lower back pain and/or sciatica.            
            We're not very "stress immune" because of this.  The entire back of the body, including the head, neck and legs, is being held tight.
 So the body is already in a stressed and tense condition.  And added tightness due to the next stress just tightens it up more.
             Just a little bit more tightness from the emotional reaction can bring on the back pain or make it worse.  Also, emotional tension in the gut tightens the muscles connected to the vertebrae in the lower back.  Some people may get immediate lower back pain or sciatica whenever this happens.
             This structural misalignment also creates a stressful behavior, one in which we "have to keep going."  We're pulled down in front and we're constantly arching the lower back to pull ourselves up.  The body posture says, "I have to keep straining, even just in everyday life."
After this shape has been corrected and the body was more balanced and centered, a number of people have been able to "let down" from intense work and do more things for themselves.

             Structural Integration Bodywork is purposely designed to correct this misalignment and remove the chronic tension.

           Working the whole body, months and years of accumulated stress are removed
at the same time that tightness all over the body is re-lengthened and the shape is more straightened out.  Built-up emotional charge in the tissues, gets erased, too.          
           Faces look more open, less strained or "scrunched up," and even younger.  Eyes get more relaxed.  Neck tension is reduced.
           The body is literally "reformed" and "cleaned up," and its tissue quality and metabolism is healthier.  So it works a lot better physically & is more stress resistant as well.
 People find the old stress they had is gone, they don't tighten up in stressful situations as much as they used to, and they let go of their tensing up faster.
overall openness and "unblocking" has helped many people express themselves more openly and more confidently.  And their minds were calmer and clearer.  A lot of their old fears due to tension and embedded negative emotions, were now gone.
             My own special multi-faceted program, Postural Integration Plus increases these stress release benefits from the bodywork alone, and adds more personal development.  It's especially helpful for trauma release, too, from very old as well as recent experiences. 
The energies we absorbed during the past trauma still stay inside the body and therefore keep making our reactions to current stress more than they should be.
 When we remove the old emotional energies created inside us during past stressful experiences, we no longer react in such a stressful way to our current stressful experiences.  Netherton and  Reichian Therapy techniques add a lot to the releasing we can do with the Bodywork itself.  They can actually get out the deeper energies in the organs and remove the negative "belief systems" that say we should get so tensed up in those kinds of situations.

People who have already gotten stress and trauma release from deep tissue massage, myofascial release, or other Structural Integration programs including Postural Integration, find they can use these methods to build on what they've already done.
              It has also immediately improved what people have worked on in their psychotherapy and spiritual counseling.  As a general rule, whatever we've already worked on mentally and emotionally, gets better when we do the physical and energetic parts, too.
              Even just Structural Integration itself has helped many people in their ongoing psychotherapy and counseling.

Improving Professional & Artistic Performance

            In the Structural Integration Bodywork method, we aren't directly fixing pains in the way medical doctors do.  We are simply, but very sophisticatedly, re-lengthening and re-organizing the body's fascial, soft connective tissue system. The method is a series of inter-connected hands-on sessions.
This putty-like tissue surrounds and goes through all our muscles.  It's what accumulates tightness and keeps us in a tight shape even when we mentally relax, get a massage or take a hot bath.
            By re-lengthening it, we are both removing the tightness and creating better overall structural alignment. The relationship of muscles and bones is actually put back toward where it's designed to be anatomically.  That even removes the tight muscular pulls from one part of the body to another.
            Problems disappear that were the result of the old restricted form.          
            In this new condition, people's psychological well being and mental performance has increased along with their physical improvements.  Awareness, centeredness, and both
mental and creative focus have all improved. 
           Performing artists, business executives and others, have been able to express their feelings and intentions more clearly and openly.  They were more confident and articulate.  And they said they had a greater "depth of feeling" inside themselves, but were calmer. 
Their minds also got clearer about what they saw in themselves, and they were clearer and less troubled by what they noticed in others.  They could take more effective action and they got kinder.
           Many people's shapes change.  They're straighter,  Many notice they're a little taller and shoulders may not be so rounded.  Body proportions get better so some people actually look thinner.  And a number of women's legs look nicer.
           People who have to "present" themselves
give a better "presentation" just because of this change in our shape and the better quality of our muscles and energies.  Of course, removing back pain and tightness, whether from stress or working out to keep in shape, gives us more of ourselves to present in a "positive" effective way.
           These body-mind improvements have also helped athletes better accomplish what they're being coached to do.  And they've helped business people better integrate what they've learned in seminars.

           Many results are exceptionally long lasting, or even permanent, and much greater re-lengthening results are created in much less time than with massage, acupuncture, trigger point therapy, and reflexology.
           As with the removal of stress, all these results are increased when the Postural Integration and Netherton Therapy techniques are included. 
They remove deeper tensions and interfering energies that the bodywork simply doesn't.  It's been especially helpful for actors, singers, announcers and dancers.
           Netherton Reichian release processing with Structural Bodywork Stretching is available by phone.
People can do this with me and have the Bodywork in their own area.  Yet even without the Bodywork, or if they've had the Bodywork before, many people can do a lot just on the phone.

Increases Benefits to Other Therapies

           The greater length and better overall alignment created with Structural Integration have regularly improved Chiropractic results and have increased the benefits from Orthopedics and Osteopathy.
Excess curves of the spine are often improved, especially lordosis and swayback.  Most lower back pain can be corrected when we correct the tightness and misalignment that cause it.  Even protruding disk or herniated disk problems and pinched nerves have been helped.
            Because the muscular tightness has been re-lengthened and the overall spinal misalignment has been improved, Chiropractors and patients report they get more vertebrae to go in, easier, and they stay in longer.
            The quality of the tissue also improves. That has increased the benefits from the next massages, acupressure, cranial-sacral work, reflexology and even magnetics and other physical therapy techniques.


Benefits to Massage       Chiropractic       Orthopedics

These structural, physiological and even energy improvements have made it easier for people to get more out of movement training such as Alexander Work, Rolfing Movement, Aston Patterning and Feldenkreis, and from yoga, tai chi and breathing meditation techniques.

Full or Partial Transformation 

            While the best and most long lasting results from the Structural Integration system happen when the whole body is treated, even one or two long sessions have helped many people;
removing a lot of recent stress and tension, and noticeably reducing some of their tightness.
            Chronic back pain usually needs a number of sessions to be able to relengthen enough tissue. Some neck and shoulder problems get better quickly.  Others require a deep re-establishment of the body's proper structural shape, as is done for the chronic back pain conditions.  Knee pain often takes a number of hours on at least the legs, back and pelvis.
            Hamstrings can often be lengthened somewhat right away.  But very large athletes with a lot of built up shortness require a number of hours to make them very long again.  The whole "interlocking" leg and pelvic muscle system has to be relengthened to get deep in the hamstrings.
            Specific traumatic episodes can often be cleared with my Postural Integration Plus system in a few hours to a few sessions.  Life long problems from a lot of childhood abuse naturally require a lot of sessions because there is a lot of tension and stored emotional charge.  But as each set of past trauma is cleaned out, significant, cumulative, and long lasting improvements do occur

Postural Integration & Bodymind Therapy

As I've been describing, Structural Integration is often combined with other Bodymind release methods
to increase the long lasting benefits, and create even more significant improvements in our well being.  It can be part of a whole personal growth system.            
              I have included in-depth articles
and testimonials about the system I use, which includes Reichian, Bioenergetic and Netherton therapy methods.
I was formally trained in the Postural Integration system and I've added to it.  Postural Integration combines Reichian Therapy, Bioenergetics, Gestalt and Chinese Medicine energy work with the Structural Integration Bodywork.  I also studied with Morris Netherton PhD.
             This combination is very thorough for trauma removal and stress reduction.  It has cleared up phobias and flashbacks.
              It is excellent for emotional release, including the loss of a loved one.  Yet that release itself is less traumatic than without the Netherton technique.  And it's a "feel good" cleaning that's also more comfortable than having the stuff still inside.
              This system actually removes long term negative patterns because it finds and removes the series of "most significant episodes" making up that pattern. 
I have a lot of successful experience helping people remove the restricting effects of abuse.
              This system creates more effective and personally satisfying abilities, at work and in personal relationships.

My rates for multi-hour intensives are often less than the hourly cost
in other areas, including travel costs.  Includes free stretching sessions, nutritional advice & optional emotional release processing.

            In my own Structural Integration approach, I incorporate advanced relengthening techniques in many sessions that usually aren't done in the basic 10-step process. These enable me to get better results, sooner  than would be common.
            I also work in more than one area in each step, also not that common.  And I work in longer sessions than the usual hour to hour and fifteen minutes.  This all enables me to make people feel better overall, sooner.
 Sometimes, if a person's body is malleable enough, I can relieve even chronic, worsening back pain in a few hours.

           I do a lot on the back, shoulders and neck, as well as the head, often right away, and in other sessions as well. This increases flexibility and relaxation even before I begin the usual "unraveling" sequence.  It makes that unraveling do more in the first sessions, too.  T
he repetitive tune ups keep people more relaxed and enable those sessions to do more as well.
          Very importantly, this approach increases our "mind-body awareness."   Besides being great for athletic performance and stress reduction, people can tell more of what the treatment itself is doing for them. 
It also helps remove old emotional energies out of the body easier, when they're released from other muscles.
Doing a lot of the head, neck and back, in the first and  many other sessions is not done in the typical week by week 10-step or 11-step program prescribed in the basic recipes used by practitioners in other schools.

           This approach enables me to do "multi-session" travel visits, too.  I combine the longer session, do more areas approach, with my unique hands-on method, and the "structural" stretching exercises that help the next Bodywork sessions do more.
           I drive or fly to the person (or group) and stay a few days to a few weeks, or they come to me.  With this system, we can do a number of long sessions on consecutive days and make great, fast progress.
I also include energy work and acupressure, high level nutrition tips, and the optional release techniques,   So we can get a lot done right away, in both the purely physical and/or the psycho-somatic realms.

My Whole Person Programs for Professionals

           Just above, I described the benefits received by business professionals and performing artists.  So I've put together Performance Enhancement programs, tailored to each personal and professional need.
           My multi-feature approach enables me to help people in more parts of their bodies and minds than with just the Bodywork alone. 
Many folks say they feel I'm working on a number of levels at once.       
          Almost all the features are done right during the Bodywork process itself.  So it's a synergistic, whole body and mind approach.  Each feature enables the others to do more.
I also refer people to features that I, myself don't provide.  I'm actually known to be a very knowledgeable resource guide.
          These programs, of course, increase physical and professional performance, and simultaneously remove stress, tightness and pain.  They also add support, insight and nourishment, in physical, psychological, nutritional and even spiritual ways.
           A key feature in my approach is educating people about their body-minds.  It's a show and tell about how humans work, and how we can all make ourselves work better, and more enjoyably.  This has worked in both their professional and personal lives.

A different kind of performance enhancement...

Rather than giving
you information
you learn, or skills
that you master...

These treatments, processes and foods increase the quality
of your "innate"
state of being.

I make who you 
So everything you
do is better.

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel & I already feel much better after just 4 hrs.
45 year old former Rape Victim (removed trauma from when she was in her teens)

This method specifically removed negative things stuck in me from old, past events, that, because I have been in psychotherapy, I knew I did not want but had not been able to release before.  The Improvement in my self esteem, my relationship with my husband, the release of resentment & the removal of childhood and teen abuse, that I received from a 4-hr afternoon session in my home, would have taken, I believe, 50 hours in my psychotherapy
34 year old Medical Office Manager, mother of 2.

In one 2-hr session I removed from my body the sorrow, anger & even muscular tension left over from the loss of my Mother 10 years ago.  And I'd had hours of other kinds of release therapy & even bodywork schooling before.  This removed a lot that I didn't even know was in there.
44 year old Massage Therapist & Herbalist

After a series of sessions, removing one past "residue" after another, right out of me, I have a lot more of me, available to me.  I was filled with anxiety and confusion.  It was even a physical thing, not just emotional feelings I was mentally aware of.  Now there is an empty space where that had been, and itís available to me for nurturing myself.  I can use this bigger, physical part of me for my own, positive feelings.  In the past, I disassociated from my feelings.  But now, Iím able to own them & I also have strong boundaries whereas before, I had a bunch of jumbled desires that were defined as a boundary, and were acting dysfunctionally as one.  I am coming from a stronger, deeper, and less "polluted" part of me.  And whatís wonderful is that people now treat me with greater respect and are very willing to offer to give to me, without my needing to ask to get my needs met.  They just see my situation and lovingly offer to help.  They are actually directly "feeling" this positive part of me deep inside me, and they are also experiencing a nicer feeling outer part of me, too.
63 year old Health Food Chef. Longtime Meditator, Mother & Grandmother

Lou's treatments have changed my life - I'm now a better me, and, I no longer have the residues of a difficult past.  I had indeed been in therapy for years, and gotten some good help.  I had a long physical & sexually abusive childhood & was intimidated & repressed, I no longer have the tightnesses in my body I got from those times, including rapes & severe hittings, nor the back pain, flashbacks & daily suicidal thoughts.  I haven't had to take anti-depressants for a year & I'd taken them for 5 years before.   I have a more loving new husband, a better job without an invalidating boss, a freer housing & financial condition & I'm free from repressive controlling family members.  I've also opened up into a more fulfilling spiritual side of me.
38 Year Old Computer Help Specialist, Mother of 2.

I began a series of Bodywork and Body-mind releasing treatments soon after my father died.  I was feeling sad, depressed, and dissatisfied with all my relationships in general.  In the first 2-hr session I released a lot of pent up frustration as well as grief and felt "100%" better.  Through succeeding sessions I've developed a greater, and growing, sense of well being and self worth.
22 year old karate teacher & carpet cleaning business owner

While I was a loving, caring & capable person before, my heart is now even more opened and I have the confidence, capacity and increased capability to work with even more difficult situations & help more people better
35 year old Social Worker - Nurse.
