I began my lymphatic drainage massage therapy treatments with Bonnie early in 2005, after re-injuring my knee while on the job as a firefighter. I had already had two previous surgeries for damaged articulating cartilage and the injuries I sustained caused additional swelling and pain to my knee. Both prior to and after surgeries, Bonnie's skillful hands helped ease the swelling in my knee which greatly reduced my pain and allowed me the ability to continue working. Unfortunately the damage was too extensive and I underwent a total knee replacement.  It was then that Bonnie began a series of myofascial release treatments on my leg to help ease the stiffness in the knee and the surrounding soft tissues of my leg. These treatments were coupled with the lymphatic drainage massage therapy and I believe that because of these therapies I was able to get the best possible range of motion for my left leg. -Debbie, LaGrange NY

Excellent class, very inclusive and helpful to all. I take a therapeutic (yoga) class with Bonnie and she meets you where you are. I have osteoarthritis and Menier's disease and I feel great afterward. I take what I've learned and apply that at home. Bonnie is very compassionate and caring with all her students no matter what abilities or disabilities we have. She is the best!!!! Very welcoming and non-judgmental. We have a lot of fun too and don't take ourselves so seriously. Love the peaceful studio space, very good energy. Highly recommended!!!!  -A Google user

    Again you have proved to me you are worth more than any price you charge! My shoulder feels really good, slight discomfort, but I went about my business after the massage and didn't even realize I have a problem with my shoulder. Only after I returned home and thought about the day I realized how much it hurt prior to receiving your massage. You truly are a angel in disguise! Thank you for your knowledge and expertise! You are a true professional.
Thank You.-John L., Hopewell Junction, NY

Bonnie is highly knowledgeable and has provided me with invaluable information - not just about nutrition, but also about exercise and spirituality.  She is a HUGE inspiration to me! -N. Thayer, Pleasant Valley, NY

I'm a vegetarian, massage therapist and a yoga instructor, people frequently assume I'm the picture of perfect health.  Between work and an active lifestyle my schedule is quite demanding. I would often grab things on the go and eat on the run. Bonnie told me to "Sit down and savor it!". This became, and still is my food mantra. Bonnie showed me that being conscious while I was eating was a great way to eat better food. When we take time to enjoy what we are eating we are more likely to eat things that are better for us, less processed and less chemicals. She showed me how to prepare snacks, make better choices within my comfort zone and introduced me to things I absolutely love that didn't know existed before.

Through small easily manageable changes Bonnie was able to transform my approach to eating. Knowing what a better choice is, making time for preparing and savoring my food, three easy steps to being healthier.  These changes also trickled over in to other aspects of my life allowing me to make better choices, make more efficient use of my time and enjoy life.  -Mark Terza, LMT, RYT

While working with Bonnie, I learned to pay attention to myself, physically, mentally and emotionally; and that self-care is extremely important for my well-being.  Bonnie has much knowledge to offer, tips, wisdom, and emotional support for anyone who works with her.  She considers the "whole person"; which is an approach that is very new to me.  -Gigi L, Fishkill, NY

Before I started learning about how to eat healthfully, I was eating fast food and junk food and I hardly ever cooked at home.  Now, after learning how simple it is to shop for and cook at home healthy and organic meals, I feel better, look better and eat better!           -Christine L.

Bonnie has helped relieve my neck pain and migraines that I have suffered with for many years.  She has also helped me regain strength after having hip surgery.       - Sandy R, Brewster, NY

My dentist referred me to Bonnie to help with my TMJ and the ringing in my ears.  After a few sessions of myofascial release along with a couple of nutritional sessions, I began to feel relief and continue to have a lot less pain in my jaw and the ringing in my ears has stopped.  Bonnie gave me exercises to help my jaw (TMJ) and explained how some foods cause inflammation in the body that could have been contributing to the ringing in my ears.  I am unsure if the ringing in my ears stopped due to changing my diet or from having myofascial release treatments, or perhaps the combination of both; either way, I am happy to be feeling better.    -  Nancy W, Beacon, NY

Thank you Bonnie for helping me get my life back!  Your positive energy, encouragement and amazing treatments were and continue to be invaluable.    -  Laura F., Germantown, NY

My pain management doctor recommended Bonnie to help with my back pain.  My goal was to decrease the pain medicine and eventually live my life without having to depend on the pain medicine.  Bonnie showed me exercises along with stretches and breathing exercises that I could do on my own time along with receiving MFR treatments as I continued to see my doctor.  I am now living my life without the pain medicine.  I continue to see Bonnie less frequently and do my exercises, etc. daily to assure that I don't fall back into my old patterns that have created my pain.   - Mike R., Poughkeepsie, NY

I am 89 years old and have been suffering with pain in my body.  My doctor referred me to Bonnie.  Bonnie explained how the fascia in the body gets tighter as we age due to bad posture, from injuries and from surgeries.  My shoulders have become rounded over the years, I have had numerous surgeries and injuries throughout my lifetime.  When Bonnie works on me, I walk out of her office feeling much taller, lighter and free from pain.  I normally have to adjust the mirror in my car when I leave her office.  I see Bonnie once a month to give me some relief.  I wish I knew about this years back, but glad I know about it now.  - Elizabeth D., Millbrook, NY

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and see Bonnie to help stay ahead of the pain.  I have tried just about every modality finding no relief.  A friend mentioned Bonnie to me and thought I should give myofascial release a try.  I am so glad I decided to call Bonnie.  Her sessions allow me to have a better quality of life.   - Kathy F, Poughquag, NY

I went to Bonnie right after my rotator cuff surgery at the same time I was receiving physical therapy.  After our sessions, I felt the tissues in my shoulder feel more open/more space, which took the pressure off.   My physical therapist said that he thought I was recovering from surgery quicker after receiving his treatments along with Bonnie's.  My surgery and recovery was very successful.  - Joe V., Fishkill, NY

I started going to Bonnie after I broke my ankle.  Her sessions helped me tremendously.  Thank you!  -Karen M., Carmel, NY

I am a yoga student and a client of Bonnie's.  I find her classes are always different and tailored to the students present in class.  She gives a few modifications to her students depending on their ability.  She is very good about meeting us where we are in the moment without judgment.  She has a way to help us feel comfortable with each other in class, there is no competition.  She and the other students are supportive and encouraging with each other.  You don't find this everywhere.   Her knowledge of the body always amazes me.   As a client, Bonnie has helped release some restrictions so I have more range of motion and more ease in my body.  I feel blessed to have Bonnie in my life.    - Sandra S., Kent, NY

I have been a monthly client of Bonnie's for 20 years.  Over the years, I have had headaches, neck pain, low back pain, shoulder issues, etc.  I continue to go to Bonnie even when I do not think I have a reason to go other than knowing I always feel so much better after having a session with her.  It is my maintenance plan by going once a month.   - K. Abbot, Hopewell Junction 

Bonnie has been my personal trainer for 5 years.  I did not enjoy working out much until I met Bonnie.  She is a great motivator by saying the right thing just at the right moment, changing each session so I don't get bored and she even helped me become a runner.  She coached me to run my first 5K race up to a marathon over the years.  I have lost 30 lbs, my blood pressure has lowered and I feel great!  I look forward to working out with Bonnie and never like to miss "my time" with her.   - K.L., LaGrange, NY
