What My Clients Say

Just wanted to drop a note to thank you for the EFT time on Saturday. I am always skeptical about things I don’t really understand, so am quite surprised by the results. I have gotten so much done since then..little projects I’ve been putting off, a big walk, got up early this morning, etc. I keep checking in with myself to see if perhaps I’m just on some sort of high or something, but no, that’s not it. I just feel like I have the energy to accomplish these things. I don’t sit here and ask myself if I have the energy..I just do. It just happens.

So perhaps there are other EFT things we can do. I know I can do it by myself, and I’ll pull out the info you gave me and see how that goes, but I also like to work with you.

Thanks again! P.

I’m Getting Things Done!

Hey Randall,

As usual, It was very nice to see you yesterday.

I think I have told you this, but I have to say it again. I am so glad that Dr. Jenny Oakes, sent me to you.

In regards to my back issues, since the car accident, you are the only professional that has helped me get better and that includes the emotional component, and al the care during my pregnancy and now difficult postpartum emotions, are just the best and make me feel much better every time.

Thank you for being such an incredible holistic therapist and a great human being!

Thanks again for the on-going support. MUCHAS GRACIAS!!

Innovative And Effective

I wanted to send you a quick note to express my gratitude for the session last night. Thank you so much for taking the time to find the deep rooted issues - my spine has not felt this much "freedom" since my surgery 18 years ago - not even with all the extensive flexibility training I had as an athlete!

I also tried Original design for my shoulder this morning and felt so much relief! I am so grateful thatI came across your website and booked an appointment - looking forward to seeing you in 2 weeks!

Thank you so much,

Deep Relief From Post Surgical Scar Tissue From 18 Years Ago

Thank you,
 not just for your words, but for your actions.  You succeed everyday!  In case you are ever tempted to think that you, or your methods, are anything less than awesome, because one of your clients doesn't seem to grasp it, I will tell you my story for the past week.

Remember first that I seemed overwhelmed or confused the last time I saw you, you read me something and I couldn't grasp it at all.  I left there to face a week filled with shame producing events. I survived them all with a sense of some sort of quiet underlying my whole being. The survival took time, it just felt strange.Then early Friday morning, I found myself face to face with a mental image I've indulged in for a long time. The moment it started, I became the most powerful person ever to walk the face of the earth and said No, never again, that is shame and I will have no part of it in my life.

I stopped, took my time, used EFT against any remaining shame and marked the place it occurred, not a precipice or a step from nothing to something or a rescue from impending doom, but a place where I was surrounded by solid ground, strength and purpose. I couldn't even see a precipice from where I stood.  So thank you, more than words can express. I will be back. And I will succeed.

Empowered with your EFT

Working with Randall Friedman over the past months has changed my life. Through deep tissue massage my pain and tension has been released in my back, shoulders and neck. I now move easily and am able to exercise and enjoy life to the fullest. With added EFT treatments I no longer have negative food cravings and have lost over 60 pounds of weight, and let go of many limiting beliefs that were indeed holding my back from the life I was meant to live. I would (and have) recommended Randall to anyone who is in pain and who may want to make some changes in their lives! T.N. (Applied Tensegrity, Deep Tissue Massage, muscle energy technique, EFT)

Making Changes!

A note to share with you and others, so that they may also benefit from your knowledge, skill and care.

You have helped my entire family. I  initially met you in a public garden where you were kind enough to treat my hip when I mentioned that it had been bothering me for several months. Since then, because of your treatments and prescribed exercises, I am almost pain free but more importantly, I feel that I actually know what I need to do in order for my body to become stronger. My children have been taught EFT by you and we use the technique as a family. They now have the knowledge to tap themselves whenever they feel it necessary to remove any negative emotions or hindrances. One can only imagine the difference this has made to the daily stresses that a 10 year old might face. A lifetime tool. My husband came to you with limited movement in one shoulder. In one session, it had released substantially. These are only a sample of the good things that we have received from you since being so fortunate to have met you that day in the park.

I look forward to continuing to learn from you.

I just finished an hour long infrared sauna. It went by so fast. It’s always a struggle to sit in there but I push myself to get through it. I was doing EFT the whole time. I really enjoyed it. I felt quite focused. That was a surprise. I actually did a session on my belief that I can’t mediate because I can’t focus and have inattention. I feel great – very relaxed. I had to laugh. I have an endless list of beliefs I’d like to change apparently. I kept thinking of new things. L.K. (Massage, and used and taught self EFT, Shared meditation techniques)

Relaxed and Focused

Hi Randall,

Thanks so much for last week... I felt infinitely better after the massage. My recovery progressed faster, and I think I'm almost there.

Thanks, F.L. (Came in with fever, feeling very run down. Cranial Sacral therapy and cupping to help break the fever and cough, C.O.A.T. for body aches, energy work to re-energize drained lower Chakras.

Thanks Randall for today's session - I really appreciate your compassion and empathy as it was much needed and you certainly knew what to do and how to help. I felt better and had a lot more clarity as to what I was feeling. Big hugs, S.K.

Thanks for your compassion and my Improved clarity

You have taught me so much in such a short time –thank you. I also feel very different today after seeing you and appreciate all the various treatments you have applied. I am quite impressed! See you next week and thank you for your offer to teach EFT as well as your open communication. Thanks again! S.K.

Thanks for sharing what you know

Why did I pay you to get rid of my spider phobia when I left I couldn't even remember what it felt like to be afraid of spiders. For a while I actually forgot how bad it was before I spent an hour with you. My friends were reminding me how bad it was for me. I recall now that if there was a spider in my home I would scream, cry and run out of the front door. If it wasn’t found, I would not stay there. Spiders stopped me from living a normal life. I couldn’t rent a basement suite because spiders are more prevalent on or beneath ground level. If there were a spider in my house I would get a stranger off the street to kill it or get rid of it. Can you imagine being so terrified that you would literally get a stranger to come into your house.   The first time I encountered a spider after I saw you, was at my boyfriend’s house in his bathroom. I simply got a shoe to kill it. I hesitated for a moment feeling a little bit badly for the spider. I killed it anyway but immediately afterwards I felt so guilty. Since then I have seen at least four spiders in his home. I don’t bother them and they don’t bother me.   Thank you so very much for your help. You changed my life.

When I left your office I felt ripped off!

I just got all my marks for this past session. Thank you so much for lowering my stress level for this semester. I still find it hard to believe how calm I was able to stay with all the impending deadlines for assignments. I would have been in tears more than once during the semester so thanks again. You rock. (EFT for test anxiety and feeling like there isn't enough time to do everything)

Stressed Out & Overworked Student

Randall Thanks. You know, my wrist is totally better now. That was awesome. Funny, I never thought massage would help my wrist. I should maybe get some of that cream too. I really appreciate you going over time to do my back too, my back very much loved that and appreciated it! My sinuses were even clearer after I left yesterday....healing happened. LoveD. (Capillary Flow Work) (Positional Release)(MLD for sinuses) (Traumeel Creme for inflammation & pain control)

Happy Wrist too, who knew?

That was a great massage yesterday.  My hamstring was far less painful today in ‘most’ positions and shoulder hardly bugged me at all.  Thanks Randall! See you in a couple of weeks.  Diane (ps.. Richard said it was ‘good’. That’s a great compliment coming him.(Deep Tissue Work)

Thanks

Pleasant surprises

I've been doing the "arm up the wall" stretches correctly for 6 days and they are really helping my tennis elbow. So much so that I don't wear the tenser around my forearm anymore & the pain doesn't wake me up during the night. Isn't that fantastic?  I have not yet mastered the "snob" neck/muscle stretch/pull yet but am working on it.  Thank you for everything you do for me. YOU are greatly appreciated.  Janice (Deep fascial Release work) (Detailed arm, neck and shoulders work)(Self care exercise)

Pleasantly surprised

Hi Randall - Thanks again for Friday's treatment... The capillary flow stuff was really wild. Felt great all weekend. Jess

Wild Stuff

Feeling much better - quieter, relaxed - in my body today. My calves (lateral left heel bone) a bit stiff but, nothing too unusual for me. Better neck and pelvis. Lots of awareness now in my legs, posture... when I stand and walk. That's great!   And thank you ever so much for EFT. Already turned 2 people onto it! It's very effective isn't it? To experience for myself how it's the interpretation that causes suffering. Replace with a loving affirmation and watch the emotion change too. I love it! Mich (Muscle Energy Technique, EFT, Applied Tensegrity)

Really Relaxed

Hey Randall,

Just wanted to let you know I'm feeling much better today. I finally was able to sleep through the night. My neck/back aches has gone from a constant 6 to a 1. I look forward to making that a 0.

Thank You!

Long Time Neck Pain

I have amazing experiences every time I see Randall.  He had recently introduced me to a technique called Matrix Energetics so when I badly sprained my ankle the night before my next appointment, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to test it's potential. The morning of my appointment the pain in my ankle was incredibly intense. I had to walk about four blocks and take a bus. The pain was excruciating. When I got there I removed my shoe and answered a few questions about the pain. Randall quickly went to work on my ankle and used the Matrix energetics technique, We concentrated on it together for a few minutes, then he said, "Okay, give that a try." When I stood up I was completely amazed that literally 80% of the pain was completely gone! I was actually overwhelmed for a moment I had to hold back my tears. It's so amazing when something like this happens in an instant before your eyes! After my massage there was barely a glimmer of pain. When I walked home I felt great, as I always have after our appointments. After expecting I would be greatly immobilized for days. It was truly special.

it has been great working with you, I have learned so much about so many things!

My Amazing Experience!

Remember I said I wasn't expecting a big difference when cycling? Well I was totally wrong, my hip movement was so fluid today and I felt no restrictions in my hip sockets. I guess you don't realize it when you ride year after year. Anyway the back felt nice and straight too. So far so good. I will do a 2 hour run tomorrow, so I should have some feedback. No pain either.  Cheers Jeff (A serious Iron Man and Marathon runner)(Deep Tissue Work, scar tissue reorganizing. Applied Tensegrity)

To let you know, I am so thrilled that I feel so much better already. I was just really kicking myself for not finding you sooner. I hope I mentioned that Mr. Ingraham sent me to you! I owe him 😉

I meant to call you and tell you what a great job you did on my neck that time about a month ago. I was FINALLY able to sleep normally. M.A.( muscle energy technique, original design work, detailed neck massage)

Phew

Hey Randall

Thanks again for my massage and eft session on Friday. I know you gave me extra time and I really appreciate it. My back/neck issue is gone and I feel great. I am amazed yet again at how effective EFT is, especially when done with you. I can't even explain how different I feel. Clear, free and energized.

I will try to remember to do it on my own when I recogize issues popping up - or the symptoms of my issues, such as hours of computer games, overeating, etc.

Got my bike fixed and back home today. So Happy!

Thanks again!

Massage and EFT Together, Feeling Great

"I was a non-believer, or a skeptic, but there really is NO MORE neck pain! and I did not have any pain tonight, getting off the couch, which is always painful. Thanks Randall!" (10 minutes of Matrix Energetics! With all the work I've done and seen, I am really blown away)

My Big Surprise.

I just want to thank you for the great massage today. As a runner training for an ironman I am constantly pushing the limits of what my body can handle. Though I do some yoga, it simply does not accomplish the healing and recovery powers I experience from one of your massages. Your understanding of the body and the techniques you choose to apply for each injury (as they occur during my training) produce a speedy recovery for me. The best feedback I can give you is from sending my friends and family with various aliments for a session with you. So far I have sent 5 clients your way who have been as pleased as I have with your healing skills.  Please keep up the great work!

Speedy Recovery

At the risk of belabouring the obvious, damn, thanks for cracking open the blocks! Range of motion dramatically improved, morning stiffness gone and overall pliability of neck and shoulders is amazing. Enrolling in a Kung Fu class to retain and expand the newfound rubberity. Yeah, I make words up. I'm what they call; dictimaginarily free. You were going to pass on some extra info. regarding different modes and paths to peace, calm, enlightenment and other expansive methods. I would be rather appreciative of any recommendations. In Peace, D (Deep Tissue work, Muscle energy technique for structural alignment, Applied Tensegrity for fascial balance and long term changes)

Cracking open the blocks!

Yesterday I had my first experience with Original Design, and though it seemed quite improbable as I went through it, there was definitely a noticeable positive impact on my body's alignment right away. Then, with a bit more 'tweaking' from Randall, I was fully aligned, and the pain I'd been experiencing was gone. Not only did Randall once again perform a miracle on me, he has given me the tools to keep practicing at home. His commitment is so obviously in getting people better, which is why I recommend him to everyone I know.

My first Original Design experience

Thank you for an incredible session yesterday (I slept like a baby). When you get a moment, I can please ask you to get the recipe for rack of lamb from your Mom. U.R.

I finally slept through the night!

I just thought I would let you know how effective that technique you are using is. I don't think my back has been this good for many years. I am not sure how many. I started having back problems when I was about 28. It might go back that far. Maureen (muscle energy technique, original design work, deep tissue massage)

My back is better then it’s been in years!

Great Results

You do wonderful, wonderful things for me...

Thanks for what you do.

Hi Randall, I just wanted to let you know that yesterdays session brought some noticeable shifts in thought and feeling.  It didn't seem like it at the time.  I feel lighter and more peaceful.  I am interested to see where this shift in consciousness will lead to. Thanks, A.(EFT, NLP)

Light and Peaceful

The session was phenomenal. I have been working with EFT for over a year and the fact that you integrated it with the bodywork was marvelous and Samuel learned a lot from watching. My shoulder pain released and has been much better. SF (She is a well known Healer)
