"Helping People come Home to themselves and creating a better Home to come Home to." - Anat Baniel
Hi Sue, Thank you so much for all the work you did with Maizie! We noticed the following changes. They seemed so subtle at first that I wasn’t sure if I was seeing things. But over time the subtle changes have led to big improvements. Here is what I noticed... Talking more. Bigger sentences. Sharing what she is thinking about. Easier conversation flow when previously it was more difficult to coax her to talk (we had to ask a lot of questions). More engaged. Better eye contact. She has fully stopped drooling. I actually packed away all of her drool bibs a few weeks ago. We no longer use them and she always has a dry shirt. It’s amazing!! She is sleeping better. Going to sleep faster, staying asleep all night. It used to take hours to get her to sleep and she would wake several times a night. Improved balance. It was very subtle and I can’t put my finger on what the change was. It seemed to come from her hip/lower back area - she seemed less ridged in that area. She has made big improvements in gross motor skills since we saw you. They have noticed her strength and balance at daycare. She is starting to keep up on walks with the other kids and is better able to climb stairs and play equipment. She began sitting with her knees bent and feet under her bum rather than w sitting. There is definitely an incredible improvement! Without you, I don’t know how we could have helped her get to this point other than constant nagging. Her feet were starting to turn in so we are very relieved about this change. We really noticed a difference and can’t wait to work with you again! Thanks again for everything! We are so excited about the work you are doing!

"In a word, Mahhhvelous! Sue is wonderful. Her manner puts you right at ease. And the treatment itself is so gentle and sublime that you don't want to leave. The after effects and integration are like nothing I've experienced, anywhere. After the first few treatments, the way my back and hips sat was so new, I didn't understand what was going on. So to speak. I now sit differently. I walk very differently. And I'm very grateful. Highly recommended to all, to experience what is possible."

"My name is Laken. I am a 25 year old mother of three. I have had the pleasure of working with Sue. I have struggled with severe hip pain for as long as I can remember (22 years approximately.) A large portion of the time, the pain would be so bad that I would barely be able to even walk sometimes. After having my three children I have found that the pain got substantially worse, so I was on the hunt for some pain relief and recommendations on what I could try next. When my mother delivered me she had some complications and instead of giving her an emergency c-section they pulled me out as I was stuck. I wore a hip brace for 1.5 months as a new born on my right hip. After years of chronic pain and trying numerous treatments and pain medication (acupuncture, chiropractic & have seen numerous specialists), I figured what could I lose by trying a 45 minute session with Sue. The results after my first session were unbelievable!!! The next day I felt exhausted but I felt my pain was gone! I can confidently say after three months and three sessions that I have not experienced one bit of chronic hip pain that I have struggled with for the last 22 years. I am completely blown away at the way my body and brain worked together with the Anat Baniel Method. I will forever be grateful that Sue reached out to me and introduced me to a new method of treatment, Anat Baniel. I can now live my life to the fullest with my three kids and husband without struggling from severe hip pain that used to completely stop me from walking sometimes. Thank you for taking the time to listen to my personal experience."

"We started seeing Sue shortly after we were told that my son, Edison, had Osteopetrosis, a genetic condition, causing Sclerotic Bone Dysplasia, an overgrowth and hardening of the bones. He struggled with his breathing, which triggered the doctors to order x-rays when he was a day old and again at a week old, both confirming sclerotic bone. Sue was still a student of the Anat Baniel Method (ABM) NeuroMovement at the time and generously offered to try the method to help with his breathing. Edison was only 3 weeks old at the time. I was also suffering with carpotunnel and was having trouble sleeping because of the pins and needles in my fingers. I had no feeling at all in my thumb, first and second fingers. Sue said we would do a few treatments for me as well. After our first treatment, we were both tired and went home to nap. When I woke up, I was so surprised and excited to feel my pointer finger had feeling in it!!! It just got better from there... By the end of the following week, I had most of the feeling back and was sleeping so much better. As far as Edison, after 3 months of specialist appointments, x-ray's, blood work.... we finally got in to see the bone specialist and the genetic specialist and councilor from Children's Hospital. She sat us down and said that she had prepared an outline for us that would entail a series of bone marrow transplants and a few other procedures. BUT... after she saw the updated x-rays, she could not explain what she saw. THE OSTEOPETROSIS WAS GONE!! There was no evidence of sclerotic bone left in his body and our specialists could not believe or explain it... She said that she could only find one other case in history where the sclerotic bone got better in a child. I am so thankful that Sue helped us and offered this treatment to us at such a difficult time. We didn't know what to expect, if anything, we just felt like we were at least trying and doing something. I did not expect to see such amazing results. Really a miracle. I am forever thankful!"

Hi Sue. I wanted to tell you how much your treatments have improved my walking.
About 9 years ago I had a bad fall on ice. My right hip kept getting worse, more pain, sometimes it would give out and I had to grab onto something so I wouldn’t fall. Then my left knee started hurting and hard to walk upstairs. Dr told me I had Bursitis and to take anti-inflammatory medication every day to keep the swelling down. The pain was so bad if I tried to go without the medication It would hurt all day. When I would sit for a while at work I would have a hard time standing up and walking. I would usually have to hold onto the desks or railing until my legs felt strong enough to walk on my own.
After taking the medication every day for about 6 months I asked Sue if she thought her lessons would help me. She said "well let’s try". I had an intensive of 6 lessons and I haven’t taken medication since then. It’s been a month and it still feels great. I’m early 60’s and I’m not ready to hold back doing things and going places. Sue gave me pain free walking. She is an excellent Practitioner. Cheryl Trotter Calgary, Alberta
It is with joy that I can testify my experience with your work. I met you “ before ” and “ after ” your training given by Anat Baniel’s Method. Your first goal was to help your son ; but what touched me deeply was your devotion and transformation into being full of hope to transform your child’s life. So when you wanted to practice by sharing this experience with us, I thought right away that : yes, I’m going to go to help this mother ! So the first time we met, I came for you, in order to help you… but when I felt the positive results on my whole body, then, as for the next sessions, well I came for me !
I have no more pain in my right arm and I can even put it behind me easily. I especially feel hope and fears have no more room.
I also bought the book, Move into Life, by Anat Baniel, in order to learn more about this soft alternative method.
I thank you for your help and wish you full success in your studies and for your future. You are a good therapist. I recommend your work for you take care of us just like a mom, and I have full confidence in you.
With Love, Claudine Jaffray, British Columbia
"This method comes along to bring a new possibility to open up our physical and sensory systems to a new consciousness of brain plasticity. It gives me more insights, more profound ways to feel the life running into my body. I can feel myself more unique, more authentic. These sensations give more confidence and a lot of hope and happiness. Thanks to ABM, especially to Sue who is a very good therapist." Miliana Jaffray, British Columbia
