This method, developed by Howard, corrects postural problems and alleviates the associated aches and pains. It is a complementary therapy to yoga, Pilates, or stretching and is especially good for cubical dwellers and people who have developed bad postural habits through employment or hobbies that "encourage" slouching.
This method was also developed by Howard and is designed to restore breathing capacity. It is especially well suited to athletes and singers, but is also very helpful to people suffering from asthma, emphysema, COPD, and other respiratory conditions.
Improves physical performance and helps to prevent and speed recovery from injuries. A tender or painful area felt during a massage can mean that muscles lack oxygenated blood, and a sticky feeling to the tissues can indicate fascia is bound, hindering flexibility and ease of movement. Massage can bring awareness and reveal areas of the body that are stuck and not working to full capacity.
Works to bring the body to a more symmetrical posture. Relief from pain can vary depending on the severity of the scoliosis. Clients have experienced very good results with the techniques incorporated in the session. Clients are also given self-care techniques to maintain the positive effects from the massage.
What can I say about Mr. Howard Mermelstein that has not already been said? He aided me with my COPD by massaging my chest in such a way I was able to breathe when my mechanical aides of life fell short of easing my breathing. When I last broke my hip he helped me to walk again even after arthritis plagued me from many fractures from World War II. This young man has healing hands and positive energy. I endorse him for my 88 years and hope he continues his medical field to help many more people.
Distinguished Flying Cross - Mr. Sol Sadicario
I was diagnosed with scoliosis at age 4. Every year the spinal curvature and pain got significantly worse. Every massage therapist I saw would give me temporary relief, if any. Every doctor I saw convinced me that surgery was my only option. After my first few sessions with Howard, they were proven wrong. I knew my life was about to take a change for the better which was completely unfathomable. Howard’s alacrity and ability to motivate anyone has resulted in me having hope and dropping my fear of being stuck living the rest of my life in pain. Individuals like Howard are few and far between. It is my sincere hope that everyone in need of physical assistance will take the opportunity to work with him because it will be a life changing experience. If every therapist was to commit themselves with the same level of enthusiasm that Howard expresses in his work, we would undoubtedly be living in a much happier and pain-free world.
