Brendan has an innate sense for how the body works, and what is needed to get it back to health. He has a passion for his work that creates a trust and confidence between him and his patients. When Brendan first treated me years ago, there were patients in the clinic that refused to work with anyone else. Helping people is truly a calling for Brendan. He is always striving to expand his knowledge and add new skill sets that complement his considerable expertise. If I lived in the Chicago area, I would go to Brendan for care in a heartbeat. There's no one I trust more.Sandra Eiro
I really thought Rolfing would be painful. Brendan explained that it is used to improve posture, relieve chronic pain and reduce stress. Considering the amount of stress coursing through my body, I got myself all geared up and expected that I would need to bite down on a leather strap as I endured the treatment....but to my surprise, it wasn't painful at all!Adaku Zerhouni
With his knowledge of the human body's muscles and fascia, this guy made major changes in my body's alignment. I dig the fact that he also kept me corfortable and informed; he explained that fascia is connective tissue that forms beneath the skin to attach, stabilize, enclose AND separate muscles and other internal organs. Fascia...its so awesome. As a Rolfer a.k.a. Structural Integrationist, you have to advance and learn new skills on a regular basis. So not only is he warm, caring and intuitive...he knows what the #@&$ he's doing!
I always thought that I had good posture, but after a series of 10 sessions with him, I actually feel taller! My aches and pains have diminished and it feels easier to breathe.
Structural Integration was the right answer to realign and rebalance my body. I am thrilled with Brendan's guidance and knowledgeable approach to this therapy. In each session he was informative about the transitions that I would experience and setting expectations on how my body would adapt. For many years I had received chiropractic care that was beneficial but on going. I found Brendan's structural integration addressed the muscular alignment that I needed to rebalance my spine and 3 months after completing my Rolfing series, I have not needed a chiropractic adjustment. I also had a twenty-year-old foot injury that changed the way I walked. I've noticed marked improvement in my gait and movement now that Brendan targeted manipulation to that foot. I am absolutely thrilled at the results of my sessions with Whole Body Kinetics and feel that my workouts, yoga and Pilates practices are a million times more beneficial!Yelp Reviewer
