I have been suffering from chronic neck and back pain from a car accident many years ago. I have had several treatments with Catherine over the past several months. Being an energy facilitator myself, I feel her ability to know where the body needs to be treated. The home exercises she has taught me have helped relieve the pain associated with my years of chronic pain. Thank you Catherine!

This woman is so very knowledgable. She was singlehandedly able to help me thorugh a very painful period where each doctor i visited dealt with only one aspect of the problem. Ms Stapelton dealt with the body as a whole and as a result helped me get control of the situation that was causing so much pain.
