My greatest passion in life is dance. Last year, I lost ALL feeling and sensation in my big left toe. Being a dancer, this terrified me that I could not feel the floor when I did a tendu, let alone going onto pointe. After a month, my toe went completely blue and I had crippling pain from the toe, through the arch and up the inside of my left leg. In panic, I ran to a foot and ankle specialist (medical doctor) who literally checked me and walked out saying, It happens sometimes. You'll learn to live with it! Then he gave me a prescription for a physical therapist for hammer toes. I cried in his office and he patted me on the knee and said there was nothing else he could do. Devastated to the core of my being, I sought alternative methods. My toe was now turning blue and I had trouble walking. I saw a podiatrist because 2 corns had now developed overnight due to the way I was now walking. He noticed the Achilles tendon was tight and also injected a solution to help with the pain in my ankle so I could walk, let alone perform! The corns went away but I still could not feel ANY sensation AND it also started to tingle constantly. By now, Shuriu Lo had been telling me to see an acupuncturist she knew, [Erin Holloway], as well as to develop my core muscles so I could be more stable. In one acupuncture treatment, my toe regained color and the tingly numbness was decreased by half! I couldn't believe it! I had also decided to see the physical therapist who ALSO said I did NOT have a hammer toe problem. He did conclude that the problem was in the FHL tendon [flexor hallicus longus] and used a weekly dose of deep tissue massage and ultrasound. He also had me using tape to support the arch daily. I actually left without pain walking for the first time in months! Once the pain management was under control, I began to see Shuriu Lo once a week. She spent some time assessing my needs and listening to my journey to that point. She was able to develop a pilates and dance conditioning program that within 2 months has changed the way I dance so dramatically that others have made comments. You're so lifted. Your pirouettes are amazing! They have even questioned that 8-9 months ago that I was THAT crippled. I have been dancing ballet now for 27 years and have always struggled with upper body and core strength. People always said I had beautiful feet but it was as if that was it. Nothing I did at the gym or at home mattered. My upper body always felt lacking aesthetically. What amazes me most is how diverse the program is and with good technique it takes so little to get such amazing results. Each session is VERY focused and targeted to my needs. Shuriu is so positive of my progress and is excellent at explaining or showing exercises in multiple ways. As a dancer/choreographer herself, she knows what will help me with class and eventually my performances. For the first time I am seeing benefits to this type of cross-training that continue to develop rather than ease off or stop showing results.

For years I had been searching in vain for relief from the residual physical issues that stem from a serious motorcycle accident. I've tried everything from conventional treatments to various chiropractors and physical therapy/rehab centers. All have offered some relief but none to the extent of Shuriu's deep, non-invasive, Thai Yoga technique

I've been under her care on a consistent basis for no more than 6 months and the way my injuries have responded is nothing short of amazing. From nerve-pulses jolting through my essentially atrophied left arm/shoulder to actual movement returning, to relieving the myriad of aches and pains on the overworked right arm/shoulder.........relief at last !!!!
