Don’t Just Take Our Word For It, Take Theirs


All my life I’ve played sports. From tennis to swimming, I’ve always had an active lifestyle. Despite knee surgeries and being diagnosed with fibromyalgia, I continued to remain active. That was until my neck and shoulder pain became unbearable. For four months, I stayed out of the pool. Taking pain medicines and doing what I could to stretch and encourage light body movement left me immobile and discouraged. I was familiar with Dawn, the fitness and wellness director at The Healthcare Gallery. I had heard about her ability to target specific areas of her clients’ bodies, so I decided to give it a try and register for personal training.

My goal was to relieve some of my neck and back pain, gain flexibility and balance back and improve my posture. After only one session with Dawn, I saw improvement in my posture. 

For the first time, I was taught how to hold my neck and shoulders in ways I had never heard of. Dawn developed workout plans and routines that I could do both at the movement studio and at home, making it easy for me to stay consistent.  Every time I come to Healthcare Gallery it’s a joy. In addition to the kind staff and effective personal training sessions, the art throughout the facility is so uplifting. To be surrounded by both good people and a beautiful atmosphere is so rewarding. After only a month and a half after my first visit, I am more active at home, can bend down, complete lunges and even swim. My whole body is getting stronger and it’s made me feel better both physically and mentally. I no longer have to take medicines for pain and finally get to enjoy swimming again.
