What my patients say about me….
“My son Charlie had scoliosis, and he worked with Tal for about a year on exercises to strengthen his core and help correct his curve. She was terrific with him. She took the time to explain the exercises and made sure he was comfortable with them so he could do them on his own in between sessions. He responded very well to the schroth. He no longer has scoliosis; as his curve is now extremely minimal. He simply has it is observed every 6 months with a low dose x-ray to ensure it does not return. We are very grateful to Tal for her expertise.”
I worked with Tal Lifshitz (Landa) for over a year, on issues related to a partial knee reconstruction, and pain management that resulted from the related flare up of pre- existing chronic back pain. Tal taught me how to incorporate exercises into my daily routine, so I could effectively stretch and function without fuss either at work or while on vacation. Tal came very highly recommended by my pain-management doctor; and she met or exceeded every objective set by my doctor and me. When we started working together, I was in constant pain and unable to comfortably function at work or in social settings; and I certainly couldn’t maintain an acceptable level of physical/cardio activity. By the time we finished working together, I had resumed my regular daily routine and incorporated Tal’s recommended exercises into my exercise regimen. It was a complete pleasure to work with Tal on every level.
