When I first started going to Ephraim for Neuromuscular therapy, I was struggling with a painful left shoulder and very tense neck and upper back. My left shoulder was interfering with sleep at night, waking me up with pain and causing difficulty finding a position for it that did not ache. Physical therapy and cortisone injections had not helped the problem and two different Orthopedic Surgeons recommended surgery, both citing different issues. Over time, Ephraim has been able to improve my shoulder enough that it no longer interferes with my sleep and it does not ache as it used to. I firmly believe had it not been for Ephraim, I would have had surgery on my shoulder that was not necessary. I have recommended and will continue to recommend Ephraim to any of my friends that have painful necks, backs, or shoulders.

My occupation requires that I spend a number of hours each day at a desk which aggravates a neck and shoulder condition. My experience with physical therapy did not relieve the discomfort I experienced. After a couple of sessions with Ephraim I noticed a marked improvement in the stiffness and range of motion. The weekly sessions have significantly improved my ability to work without the pain and stiffness I had previously experienced.

I am a chronic headache sufferer, both migraine and tension, for greater than ten years. I had tried just about every headache preventative and treatment medication available with limited success. When I met Ephraim, I was averaging four to five headaches a week and was in the process of weaning off my medications. On my first visit, I told Ephraim not to worry as I had no expectation. Ephraim, on the other hand, was convinced he could help me. His confidence gave me hope and his personable manner put me at ease. Over a couple of sessions, I began to notice steady improvement; within a few months, my headaches decreased in frequency from four to five a week to only four to five a month - an incredible outcome which I never thought possible.

Ephraim's neuromuscular work has been and is a necessary part of my physical well-being. For the past year we have worked to create more balance in my muscular health, and recently on rehabilitating injured hamstrings and related problems. Ephraim's ability to unblock locked muscular patterns and slowly return flexibility to the tissue has helped me significantly. I teach Pilates movement for a living, and my overall physical condition must be such that I am a visible example of quality movement patterns for my clients. When I have a problem with injured or chronically tight muscles and can not correct the problem with working the muscle and stretching, I need help. I rely on Ephraim's friendly and professional assistance to restore balance in my body and promote the range of motion I need in my work and in my life!
