I had a file cabinet fall on my head two years before I had seen Jill. I was in loads of pain. I was taking pain killers around the clock, plus seeing a chiropractor, but nothing was helping. After one and a half hours of treatment from head-to-toe, learning exercises and having my TMJ worked on, I was 90% better! After just one treatment.
I was having chronic trouble with my knee, and I asked if she could help me. She said that she could. After just one treatment, my knee no longer had chronic pain. I guess you could say it was almost a miracle. I was so happy to have met her, and will continue to see her as a massage therapist when I have physical problems.
I had fallen in my kitchen; this caused me further trouble with my neck. After just one treatment, my neck was feeling so much better. The type of therapy that she performed superseded and surpassed what my chiropractor and another massage therapist was able to do for me.
When receiving treatment for my aches and pains, I have held to the belief that the root cause of the problem needs to be found, instead of treating the resulting symptoms. For that reason, I am thrilled to have found someone who has learned techniques that do just that. I have a job that requires me to sit at a computer most of the day. As a result, my sciatic nerve was irritated and caused me pain when sitting or walking. I would stretch throughout the day which alleviated the pain and tightness temporarily. After two sessions with Jill, I found I could walk without the pain in my leg and my shoulders were much more relaxed. After several sessions, I was pain free and only had to keep up with the prescribed exercises.
My job requires that I must sit at the computer for long periods of time. I frequently experienced tension and pain in my back, which are compounded because I have scoliosis. I have suffered with this condition for years. But, since my initial sessions with Jill, these problems have not reoccurred for months. My sessions with Jill were invaluable.
I was buried in a mass of painful knots and stiffness. When I first met Jill Hayden I had almost convinced myself that I would never be the active, energetic, physically strong woman I had been just a few years ago. I woke up one morning about six months after the surgery and could barely walk across the floor. My whole body, especially my left side, had been taken over by painful knots, stiffness and tingling-nerve type feelings. I felt like I was 90 years old instead of 40. I was dragging myself to work every day, and was ready for bed when I got home at 6 P.M. The numbness and tingling on my left side wouldn’t go away for months. I did not have MS or any other of the other countless illnesses they tested me for. I was finally diagnosed with fibromyalgia.
To make a very long story short after my first session with Jill I slept better and stood taller. By the third visit I decided that she was helping me more than any of the medications. I decided to detox myself from all these medications, which added up to five by now. I underwent a two week period of withdrawal that was both painful and scared me to death. I have been off all the medications now for a month. I see Jill once a week and I am almost pain free. I stand taller, think clearer. I can feel my mind and my body working together again. I am free, I can walk and I have been back in the gym working out. I can take care of my family again. I can smile and look the Fibro monster in the face and say, “I am stronger than you!” I can do anything. I am alive and my body is balanced for the first time in years. Thank you Jill, for your healing touch and powerful technique. It is such a wonderful feeling to be back living life and feeling joy.
I walked with a cane for seven years due to an accident on the job. After Jill worked on me I didn’t have to use my cane anymore. She is very professional and I recommend her service to all who hurt.
I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and after just a few visits with Jill I have already benefited. The stiffness and pain have been significantly reduced. I am also not shaking as much as before I began to visit her. I am more flexible and also more hopeful as a result of her care. Another benefit of Jill’s therapy is that I been able to reduce the dosage of my Parkinson’s medication. She is always very careful to leave medical matters to the doctors. She knows where the lines are. I believe my neurologist will be very pleased with my progress when I see her again in four months.
In addition to tangible physical benefits, it is truly enjoyable to be in her company. She is generous with helpful nutrition and exercise information. It is obvious that she is a capable, considerate therapist who really cares about her clients. It would be my pleasure to recommend her.
I am vice president of marketing for a national television network. My wife, Gail, and I have been going to Jill Hayden for more than eight months. We first heard about her from a doctor we were seeing who had been impressed with Jill’s treatments. Although we had gone to another massage therapist, we had not been satisfied with the results. In September 2001, Gail decided to see Jill, largely because of the positive recommendation we had received. She was very impressed with Jill, and her treatment.
A few weeks later a doctor reported that I needed “serious body work,” because of high levels of stress. I was told that I needed to improve my relaxation. Gail felt that Jill could help me. I started going to Jill December 2001, and immediately was impressed with her treatments. I had been to chiropractors, several massage therapists, and doctors, but none of them helped me as much as Jill did. Her treatments where thorough, and unlike other massage therapists I had visited. I did not merely feel better for a short period of time, but I felt the result long after treatments themselves.
One of the things that impressed me the most was that I felt that Jill provided practical solutions that helped me throughout the week. She gave me exercises and made recommendations for an exercise video series we could watch, and helped me find ways to make changes in my lifestyle. I felt that she really cared about me and my health. We found that her advice was consistently solid and that her approach was professional. When I was retested, my doctor reported that my condition had improved dramatically and that my levels of stress had diminished considerably. I attributed much of this to the treatments I received from Jill Hayden
We were so pleased with the results that we began to tell other people about Jill. During the following months, we brought several friends and family members to her for treatments, including several people who where visiting out of area from other states. All of them were impressed. In particular, Gail’s sister experienced a dramatic change in a spinal condition after one treatment.
Experience 1: When I went to see Jill in 2000 I just needed a massage, or so I thought. Instead, I got a complete workout from head to toe. Could hardly walk out of her office. It was the best body therapy experience I have ever had. That says a lot because I have tried it all. Anyway, about the third visit, my hip area decided to release under the competent hands of Jill. Wow. I could hardly walk for a week (only due to the fact that every muscle fiber from my hips to my chin stretched like it had never been stretched before.) Exactly one week later, I woke up without any lower back pain. This is a pain I had for at least 20 years which woke me up about every two hours during the night. So, for 20 years I never slept through the night. With the lower back in balance now, I wasn't waking up till 7:00AM. I told my husband I needed to go to the doctor. I must be sick because I am sleeping so hard. He told me that is how normal people sleep.
Experience 2: I was hit in the head by airbags in a car accident. About two months after the accident, I would have a terrible wave of dizziness when I turned my head to the left. So, I went to Jill. She started with the same routine... feet first working up to the neck and head. She balanced out the muscles in the neck area. Honestly, I felt horrible... I went home and went to bed. The next morning, I opened my eyes, gently turned my head to the left and right. No dizziness. But my body felt like it had been hit by a mack truck. I was in the bed for two days but I have never had the dizziness again.
Experience 3: My shoulder was hurting so bad that the only relief I would get was to hold it up over my head. Also, the nerves would 'zing' down my arm when I used it. Not good. I was living in VA and Jill was living in FL. I thought it would be too extreme to go to FL just for some body work. I went to two chiropractors and massage therapists, used a tense machine, put on umpteen creams. After I realized I was being ripped-off by a practitioner, with tears running down my face I told my husband I was hopping on a plane and renting a car to go see Jill. His response? "I told you to do that when this first happened." A month after my problem started I finally was on my way to recovery. Although this issue did not go away overnight, the therapy plus the continued self-therapy Jill suggested eventually fixed the issue. I have never had this since.
I was so impressed with the results of this therapy, I decided to take the classes offered by Jill. I started using the therapy with family and friends. Because it was very satisfying to see results, I went to massage school and became a certified massage therapist. Through the Isometric Muscle and Body Balancing, I have helped a stroke victim regain the use of his hand and arm, brought relief for sciatic nerve sufferers, helped with facial paralysis, neck and shoulder issues, sinus pain and a host of other issues. I am so grateful to have Jill in my corner and hope that is some small way I can benefit others with Isometric Muscle & Body Balancing.
