It's amazing to think that stubborn pain that I had been enduring for years could go away so quickly. After years of a mild but annoying lower back ache, and 2 years of chiropractic treatment, Laura was able to cure me 100%, not just a reduction of pain but a complete cure. I recommend that anyone who has chronic back pain see Laura. She can really help you. She uses the Sarno method of understanding muscle tightness and focuses your mind on the possibility of psychology being the root of many stubborn muscle aches. Sometimes it can be hard to believe that pain can be caused by psychological causes but after reading Sarno's book, I have come to believe in how logical this is and how illogical it is to constantly seek treatment that is just a placebo or a maintenance of the pain without solving the root of the pain. I have also enjoyed Laura's massages. I've been enjoying massage most of my life and really find it a great way to relax and kind of sink deeper into my body. Laura
I suffered with lower back pain for many years and visits to a chiropractor and sessions with a physical therapist resulted in only temporary relief sometimes a few days, sometimes only a few hours. Out of desperation and unable to get through a day without thinking I must need surgery, I booked a session with Better Back Massage Therapy in Norwalk. I was encouraged when Laura told me that I do not have to live with back pain, and endless suffering will not be a part of my life. With all my visits to chiropractors and sessions with a physical therapist, no doctors told me there is a cure for my back pain just treatment. Laura, however, with her many years of helping people like me, said that I can live without lower back pain. After a few sessions, along with Lauras positive attitude and professionalism, my lower back pain was well on its way to being a thing of the past. That was about twenty years ago, and today I am still living virtually pain free. Thanks, Laura.
My sessions with Laura Skutch were life changing. I finally came to understand that stress is the source of the lower back pain that Id been dealing with for at least 4 years. Laura expertly and compassionately guided me through the principles of Dr. John Sarnos book, The MindBody Prescription, and helped me to understand how to apply them through examination of my own personal story. Her unique combination of skilled massage, and thoughtful guidance in exploring my own stress triggers, allowed me in only a few short weeks, to reclaim the active lifestyle I thought Id lost. She really has changed my life!
Laura Skutch helped heal my chronic back pain and helped me learn to deal with the underlying anxiety that was causing the pain. For years my upper back, shoulder blades, and neck were full of painful muscle knots. My body always felt tense. Sometimes the pain was so bad it kept me from sleeping and from relaxing and enjoying life. I went to several doctors and tried acupuncture, yoga, chiropractic, massage therapy, and Chinese herbs. Nothing was a permanent solution. I knew my back pain was caused by stress, but I didn't know how to stop my stress from causing the pain. Then I found Laura Skutch. I went to her because she combined massage therapy with stress-reduction, which sounded like exactly what I needed. It was. My back pain is significantly reduced thanks to Laura. In a few short weeks, I've learned how to stop the pain right when it begins. Laura is compassionate, knowledgeable, and fun to work with. Laura is an excellent massage therapist, and thanks to her guidance, I now un
I'd suffered for over five years with what I'd been told were symptoms of a ruptured disc in my neck. I'd been treated by a chiropractor weekly for over five years, and I haven't had one appointment since I began working with Laura. Working with Laura has changed my life. I've taken control of my physical and emotional wellness. After my second appointment with Laura Skutch, my pain decreased 80%. With continued work, I now live 95% pain free, and am still moving forward. I would encourage anyone suffering from chronic pain issues to explore massage therapy with Laura to learn how to do more than manage their pain. They can be free of it!
I lived with arm and elbow pain for 10 years, convinced it was pointless to expect any better. Laura only asked that I be open to a new possibility. Hey, why not? She used a mind-body method that has been proven so effective, it makes surgeons and chiropractors a little nervous. You dont needs tons of sessions, nor do you need to pay $1000s to get cut open. It includes great massages, some reading, some re-thinking your approach to your body. If youre committed to the process and do the mind work, I can almost guarantee that your pain will go away. Mine has. Isnt it nice to know that our bodies are much stronger than we think? Laura has a formidable grasp of this approach. I highly recommend her as a practitioner and partner in your health.
I've been using "A Better Back Massage Therapy" for almost 12 years!! I feel it is a wonderful program for stress management and maintenance! Besides the excellent and professional therapy service I've gained a ton of insight with discussions on the physical aspects of how to cope with stress and incorporate practical steps to keep ahead of or even with it. I would highly recommend a visit to anyone.! Mike (5-10-2011)
I researched for a Massage Therapist June 2007 to treat my excruciating lower back pain..After reading the qualifications for Laura Skutch of A Better Back Massage Therapy,I made an appointment.The Massage Therapy treatment I received provided for relief from the pain,which I found out was stress related.The holistic approach practiced by Laura Skutch,as well as my willingness to follow her recommendations led to an elimination of the lower back pain.I continue to go approximately every 4 weeks,four years later, as stress reduction preventative measures and for other benefits.There was a recent almost re-occurence of back pain recently but I employed the breathing technique taught to me by Ms. Skutch and the pain soon left prior to my next appointment. In terms of Treatment Technique, Professionalism and Value, I wholeheartedly recommend A Better Back Massage Therapy. George in Norwalk, CT
