Take a Step Toward Pain-free Living




Back pain

"My life was really limited because I was afraid my back would go into spasm and then I'd be incapacitated for several days. Then I met Gadi and he introduced me to Strain Counterstrain and it has changed my life.

It has been over a year and I haven't had one back spasm. If there is any tightness in my back, I use the method and it's gone.

All of his techniques are easy to learn, easy to understand, easy to do. The way he teaches, it's not complicated once you start practicing. You can do each of the moves at home and you don't need any special equipment."



Carpal Tunnel, arm and neck pain

"I had carpal tunnel so bad my hand and arm was in pain all the way to my neck. I could barely drive. I had seen acupuncturists, chiropractors, nothing was helping. Doctors said I'd need surgery...

I found Gadi and he showed me how the problem was actually in my neck.
I went to 3 sessions over 3 weeks. The pain was gone and never came back.

He's fabulous and the Strain Counterstrain system is excellent."



Back and Hip pain

"I've been working with gadi for over 3 years now and I can't say enough good things about it.

When i first started with him I had a lot of issues with my lower back and hips. And working with him and the releases has completely changed my life.

I no longer get back spasms that would put me out for weeks at a time. And it's just a truly miraculous method. I highly recommend it"
