“My old back and shoulder injuries, coupled with inactivity, were taking a serious toll on my life. I could hardly get up the stairs; my shoulder was frozen and my back was stiff. Thanks to Amy, I get around normally, have full range of motion in my shoulder and am free from debilitating back pain. Plus I am team business leader. It’s been a couple of years now and I still do my therapy. Thanks, Amy!” Ty

Testimonial:
“Having suffered with back pain on and off for the past 7 years I needed something or someone to provide a drastic alternative to the therapy that I had participated in for the better part of a decade. That is what I found in Amy Kraft. When I first met Amy I was in excruciating pain, which emanated from my low back and which was mostly characterized by a burning sensation in my left ankle. We began with very basic movements sitting in a chair. That was even difficult for me. Amy also provided me with a thorough ergonomic evaluation and as a result I changed the way I sat in my office and in my car. This eventually changed the way that I positioned myself throughout the day and resulted in minimizing my pain. As my pain diminished, Amy taught me some standing postures and then once my pain was completely absent Amy was able to increase the intensity and the difficulty of the exercises. As a professor of exercise science, I know how difficult it is to prescribe exercise, specifically appropriate progressions and regressions as pain subsides or becomes worse. Amy has this skill in spades. She has a knack (rarely found in this business) to evaluate the injury, and get to the root cause. I am now pain free for about 4 weeks after seeing Amy for 4 sessions. I continue to perform the exercises that Amy prescribed and I am back to my regular exercise routine. Amy is one who understands the anatomy to the point that she is able to discern from where pain is emanating and then prescribes very specific exercise and ergonomic suggestions to eliminate pain completely. I have worked with trainers and physical therapists my entire career, there are few that possess the special intelligence and compassion that Amy provides. I highly recommend Amy to anyone that suffers from back pain, for those that need an education in postural alignment and for those looking for ergonomic suggestions to improve posture.” -David S.

“I have had scoliosis since a teenager. Amy does too and yet I would never have known it watching her exercise and her energy. She gave me a list of yoga therapies that I could do myself to help realign. I also hardly take meds for GERD– My neck pain is gone now too!” Len

“Such intense sciatica pain in the office. With proper ergonomics & postural alignment, I am pain-free. Success+ sustains me in daily life too—Thank you!!!” Richard
Testimonial:
“Until I began working with Amy, my fibromyalgia kept me awake. I would be stressed at the firm and my family life suffered. Amy helped me ‘breathe’ & re-align—huge relief for my feet and lower back pain too. She re-vamped my personal workout as well. My skiing and tennis are 2 notches up!!” Debra
Testimonial:
“Until I met Amy, I was a broken record with “oh, my aching neck”…And in just one session with her postural alignment & ergonomics training in my office, I have not repeated that painful phrase in several years! Plus I look and truly feel an inch taller. I am even running again—without shin splints and blistered feet. Oh—I forgot—no more plantar fasciitis! I recommend Amy Kraft to all my corporate friends & associates.” Loren

“Amy worked with me on my posture, especially my shoulder girdle and rib cage. She gave me simple exercises to do at my desk and now I no longer have wrist pain—2 weeks before my scheduled surgery! Arm wrestling again with my 2 teenagers!” Roger
Testimonial:
“I am a case manager at Boston Childrens Hospital. Yesterday I met with Amy Kraft and seven of our case management associates and their supervisor for an hour of power postures and breathing exercises. We all prefer to call it our hour of bliss. I would  like  tell you why.

Amy contacted me immediately after I inquired about her  services while a she was at the Dana Farber Center. Rita Fountain had told me about Amy and I have been very eager to get these new  employees some relief from sitting all day and talking to insurance companies. This group fits the bill of people who endure high stress, sit at the desk and work on the computer from start to finish of their day. They have to maintain calmness amidst chaos. They cannot always walk away but I wanted them to learn  techniques to help them relieve stress right in the workplace. Sometimes the place is a jungle and they are often in fight or flight response. My hope is that they can learn to turn off that fight response. Could we make the workplace a lion-free zone? They are all young and enthusiastic and have made such a difference in our department and my aim to is keep them here and to make sure that they stay healthy. Amy sent me handouts and kept updating me with her program as the time for her class neared.. She came, she saw, and she conquered us. That hour went by so fast. Amy got to know everyone and even geared her talk toward some of their stated  health problems–back pain, foot pain, jaw pain. Amy was able to capture our group needs and address them. Her ability to connect with us was uncanny. She had wonderful handouts and pictures and  used props and gave hands-on assistance to  us. She used humor. Her enthusiasm for her work is palpable. She is joyous and I cannot tell you how much every participant loved the program. Many of them have incorporated her suggestions into their workday. Amy showed us how to use a long strap tied at the waist and looped over the shoulders to prevent us from hunching over at our desks and several of them are using some long straps. One even asked if she could take the strap home for the weekend. How’s that for teachers changing behaviors?  I see a lot more thoracic extension since Amy came.

Perhaps the best testimonial to Amy is the response I got when I asked if they would like a follow-up session with Amy. The responses were all enthusiastic: “Please do it before or after my vacation so I won’t miss it.” Or “Of course I would. I loved her.” One person even asked if Amy could include meditation. I asked and Amy immediately acquiesced. I have been sharing this story with my colleagues on 9 NW, the inpatient neuroscience unit and they are asking Amy to do a session with them.

In summary, Amy is a font of knowledge and skill and she radiates positive energy.he opened her heart to us and gave some very valuable lessons. She is a breath of fresh air and we are all grateful for her presence and her presents.
Thank you.
