I heartily recommend Beverley Ikier who has worked on back problems and hip/joint strengthening for me, and for my Mom from when Mom was about 75 all the way to age 93.
Beverley is a very skilled board certified massage therapist and bodyworker who has practiced in this area for at least 20+ years, and also teaches local classes in “Osteofitness” which was a boon to my Mom who had severe osteoporosis. I am aware of several of Beverley’s clients who have reversed their Osteoporosis in hips and back without prescription medications, by focusing on strengthening exercises and therapeutic massage.
I have gone to her myself weekly for about 6 years. She has a deep knowledge of joint mobility, and effective hands-on strategies to recover from injuries or surgeries. Or how to strengthen so that pain is reduced and surgery may not be necessary in many cases.
Best of all, she is a very good explainer, very positive and kind and encouraging, and she helps clients maintain their strengthening between appointments with suggestions of take-home exercises that can be done standing at the kitchen sink or with very simple props that most of us have at home already.Marsha Knoll,
