I am a patient of Dr Vitalis so was really pleased to discover that he and Roberta shared premises as it made it very convenient, and it meant she was endorsed by another health professional who I know, respect and trust.
Over the years I have experienced many treatments ranging from the soft music, oils and bliss types to the almost painful deep tissue massages, so I was expecting a certain amount of relief. However I was not expecting the results that Roberta was able to achieve. It was amazing!
Before the first session my neck was sore, my lower back was sore, my arms especially around the elbow were painful, and I felt stiff whenever I stood up after sitting for a few hours. I was feeling old before my time!
After the first session I was able to touch my toes – I had forgotten where they were! Previously bending over meant reaching my knees, and now after several sessions I can move my body freely.
You stay fully clothed, there’s no oil or soft music so it not a sensuous experience. It’s more like having a personal trainer give you a great work out except you get to just lie there! That’s my idea of exercise! Plus Roberta is intelligent, well informed and funny so it’s interesting as well. My husband and I both love our treatments.
Roberta also encouraged me to be responsible for caring for my body and ‘stretch’ every hour – not just move but stretch. At first this seemed a bit inconvenient but the result was remarkable – I think clearer and am far more efficient on my return to my desk.
I recommend Roberta to everyone! But if you suffer pain, your body aches and you feel stiff, tired and sluggish – then seriously – just make an appointment – she can fix it.
