"I am so grateful to have found Shana. She is a true healer. She has that gift of an intuitive understanding grounded in an in depth knowledge of the functional anatomy of the human body. Throughout our work together she has been a continual student, doing workshops, teaching others, and learning more to support the treatment of her clients. Her love of dance shines through in her work as she imparts a fluidity and embodiedness that weaves its way through each of the specific concerns I have brought to her. Working with Shana has made a tremendous difference in my body and my life, and I recommend her without reservation. Thank you Shana."
“I’ve been a client of Shana’s for 4 years. She is intuitive, caring, & knowledgeable. She has a network of skilled & trustworthy practitioners to aid in your support should your situation require it.”
"If you have pain and no one else has been able to figure out how to heal you...you need Shana. I have always approached any 'alternative' methods with a mixture of hope and caution...but after Shana fixed my tennis elbow after a year of struggle with other treatments ( after only 3 sessions!) I was a convert. Her diagnostic method is unique and she cares about getting the results. I'm not sure she can treat and help with every type of pain, but I've yet to come to her and not get relief. Over the years I have seen her for tennis elbow, wrist injuries, neck, back, migraine treatment and am always get off the table in better shape than I came. Besides, she is a wonderful person, with a good and caring heart, and an awesome 'table-side' manner. Shana is great...don't even consider going to anyone else!"
"Shana has treated me for various injuries, for emotional healing, and for general body work. I cannot say enough about how good I feel after each session. You can feel how thoughtful she is in all of the body work she does and gets results every time. You will NOT be disappointed in Shana - it will be the best massage/healing/body work you will ever get...hands down!!"
"Shana Walt is a magical being whose ability to harmonize body, mind, and spirit results in physical serenity.
I have degenerative disc disease in my spine and rheumatoid arthritis which combine to put my muscles from clavicle to hip into a 24 hour daily spasm.
She let me see where the nerves misfire to trigger the spasms. Shana painted a detailed picture with words to illustrate where and how the infrastructure is not in line.
I was able to visualize the connections and where to let my vertebrae settle so she could re-route the energy and balance the systems.
Give yourselves the gift of self care. I am very grateful that I did."
"I have worked with Shana Walt for more than a decade. I can say that from the early days there was a palpable intuition operating and unique healing touch that I experienced in the sessions. Her methods and techniques seemed to be guided by a deeper listening. Fast forward ten years of experience and continued training and my experience is beyond compare. I leave a session with Shana feeling a deep connection inside myself along with a fluidity in movement that brings a smile to my face and my heart every single time."
"Shana is amazing. I am a chiropractor and massage therapist myself so I am *really* picky about who I go to for my own care and who I refer my patients to, and I do refer so many of my patients to her because her work is effective. She is holistic, anatomically precise, connected, knowledgeable, loving, and just all around a bodywork ninja magic lady. I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone."
"Shana is truly an AMAZING healer. Her knowledge of the body is mind-blowing. You might come in with a pain in your jaw and she'll massage your hip and it will go away. She made me realize how little I know about the human body. I went to see her for a pain in my shoulder that wouldn't heal and by the end of our session it was completely gone. Plus, she has a great table-side manner that is genuinely calming and caring. I can't recommend her more!"
"Shana is amazingly talented at her craft. As a physical therapist myself, I am always impressed by her exceptional knowledge of the body and the kinematics of the musculoskeletal system. Shana intuitively feels and observes imbalances and uses many different manual techniques to release tight areas. She always checks that her work was effective by retesting muscle strengthening. I highly recommend her!!"
"Shana's presence alone is a healing force. She is intuitive and grounding. From the moment I met her, I felt both sensations of meeting a woman with the ability to be ignited like a spark, yet also a coal burning calm and strong. Shana made me feel welcome immediately with a listening ear, non-judgmental affect, and a candid spirit. As she moved my bones, muscles, and flesh, she explained the process and how it related to what she was sensing and attempting to shift. She coached my breathing, and honored my shifts between silence, laughter, and tears as deeper things moved through me. At one point, when she was simply holding me by my pelvis and the base of my skull, I was able to completely release my muscle tension for the first time in years.
I had been in severe pain from sciatica and piriformis syndrome for over 3 weeks. Certainly, in one treatment, my problem was not permanently fixed. However, I left her office in absolutely no pain, and have continued to dance, train, and teach 56 movement classes in 12 days without pain. I have recommended Shana to my clients, yoga colleagues, fellow dancers and friends. She is truly a gifted healer."
