Pain Relief Testimonials and healing stories
My daughter originally saw Don for her scoliosis (which is a curvature of the spine), which has caused her severe pain for years as she biked and ran. Don was able to relieve that pain with 8 NER treatments. She’s told me she feels like a new person!
Since my daughter’s treatment went so well, she decided as a surprise to schedule an appointment for me to see Don on one of my visits to Denver (I’m from Seattle). Over the past several years, my migraines have tapered off to 1 or 2 per week. I thought that was ok, but my daughter wanted to see if Don could help me lower the frequency.
I used to think my migraines were hormone triggered, but now I don’t believe that to be the case. Since I was treated by Don in October 2011, I have not had even one migraine – and it’s now March 2012. I was a skeptic until I personally went through the treatment, and felt the results. I would have never believed that I would be migraine free after living with it nearly all my life.
An additional benefit that I’ve discovered is that my heart palpitations and reflux are non-existent. I continue to take some medications prescribed by my cardiologist and nephrologist, however, the doctors are very happy with my progress and have either reduced the dosage or cut out several medications.
To say I’m happy with the results is almost laughable. I’m ecstatic!
Donald Kipp works miracles. With observation and a few minutes of application of his art; I have been pain free for 5 days now. I have freedom of movement in my hips and I can stand up straight like I was a teenager again (I’m 60). I have even given up the orthodics that were actually doing harm to my body.
No invasive surgeries or needles needed; just fine-tuned awareness and intention makes this holistic application a wonderful alternative to drugs and surgery! I can share how it has improved my life.
After trying chiropractic care, acupuncture, massage, inversion table and swimming exercises I managed to find some degree of tolerability in managing a bit of my pain. The swimming and hot tub seemed to work best. Recently, at a friend's suggestion, I had the opportunity to become introduced to Don. In one session, after taking measurements and performing his NER techniques, for the first time in over a year and a half I'm able to walk straight and at a pace anyone other than a New Yorker would be proud of. I do still experience discomfort in my leg but it's nowhere near what it was. I'm confident a few more sessions would help ease those remaining symptoms. Additionally, after the session when Don remeasured my height I was over 1 1/4" higher than just 20 minutes earlier at the start.
I cannot recommend this treatment enough. I feel like I'm getting my life back again, where pain is not center stage before everything else. There's no price for that kind of relief. Thank you!
Thanks to a few visits to Don Kipp and NER, I have been pain free and doing the physical and active pursuits (hiking, camping, weight training, mountain biking) I enjoy so much, I have my health and life back! NER treats the cause, not the symptoms, and I believe Mr. Kipp and NER can have the same results for anyone living with pain! Thank you so much
At some point we lost hope and this is when our pediatrician recommended us to visit Don Kipp. After only three visits Mark's issues gone away and for the last 8 month he had no symptoms. He is able to sleep, run, no headaches, no infections. We're very pleased and happy with the results.
A client of mine that is a hairdresser had a wrist bothering her to the degree she thought she'd have to give up her profession. After one NER treatment the symptoms disappeared and have not returned for the past 8 months. Another client was going in for neck surgery because he couldn't utilize the use of his arm and had blurred vision. After one partial treatment symptoms where completely gone and haven't returned for one year.
Clients I have treated with NER have returned to playing softball, tennis, gardening and work where before they believed such activities to be only a part of the past. My clients have discovered that they feel better for a long period commonly after one treatment and all delivered in an amazingly pleasant manner. I've even been able to receive great benefit from self treatment!
Incorporating NER into my practice (as a treatment alone or integrated with or into my basic Swedish) NER has become the vehicle which transports my idealism into realization of those I treat.
The neck displacement had also caused sleep apnea. I tried chiropractic, yoga, massage and various other treatments with no success. The sleep apnea has completely disappeared since NER treatment.
I am now in Massage School and even deep tissue massage does not bring back the problem where as in the past the slightest neck disturbance would cause it to return. It's been over a year now and I'm still feeling great!
He has developed a technique that combines touch and breath and it is simply amazing! I have seen him, my husband has seen him, and our 12 year old son, Billy has seen him. In all cases, we have gone to him with our bodies pretty severely “out of line” and he has sent us home aligned, healthy and happy. My husband and I went to see Don in pain, and left pain free.
Our reasons for Billy to see Don were less acute. He was not in pain, however we had noticed for years that when he walked he was canted forward, when he walked for long periods of time his feet tired quickly, and he had very little stamina. We never knew what to do to help him, until we met Don. After his first appointment, Billy grew a solid inch (which is a huge deal for a 12 year old boy!). He was standing tall. He was able to keep up with me (and go past me) on hikes for the first time in his life, his stamina increased and he felt physically better all around. The changes in him were remarkable.
I do not fully understand what Don Kipp does with his NER technique…but I don’t need to…it works! If you are reading this because you are unsure about whether or not this is for you…try it…for those who have not experienced any sort of “alternative” medicine, the idea may be a bit intimidating…please don’t let it be…NER will help you…it sure has helped us.
Through the internet and with the help of God we flew to Morrison to have 4 treatments from Don Kipp in the beautiful mountain surroundings of his office. Don discovered through measurements that my body was tilted forward 3 inches putting all my weight on the front of my feet, causing foot, ankle, knee and hip problems. The left hip was forward 33 degrees and the right was tipped backward and twisted as was my spine and neck.
Don went right to work feeling the nerves and muscles with his Neuroenergetic release method. I was amazed to realize that some of the places he touched were so sensitive, even though I wasn’t aware of it. The treatments were intense though not usually painful, and covered my nervous system from head to toe as I breathed at each place he touched.
It feels like I am now getting used to a new body which seems to re-position itself when I am standing, sitting and lying down. After only 4 sessions over 5 days I went from extreme pain which hurt every step, to relatively pain free. The hip and S-I joint do not throb. The neck which always hurt is 90 percent better. Most important of all, I feel lighter in my whole body. By being in total body alignment, it isn’t an effort to stand straight and I feel GREAT.
We moved away and eight years later I started having similar problems. I thought it was my shoes at first, but it wasn't. I tried a series of stretching exercises including Chiropractic care for three years from once a month to once a week with no relief. Went to our family MD and he said it's something you are going to have to live with. My husband said lets try and find Don Kipp, he helped you before. It took sometime searching records to find him. We made a connection, then an appointment and a one hour treatment with Don Kipp and NER. I am now pain free once again, doing exercises, lifting weights, and doing dance videos. He says with a little maintenance I can stay this way.
I FEEL FANTASTIC. Thank you Mr. Kipp,
My name is Wayne Sheppard, and I would like to share with you my experience of Don Kipp’s Neuroenergetic Release.
First of all though, let me tell you a little bit about my history of back problems. In 1983 I was involved in both a serious traffic accident, and had a skydiving accident. The result of these was that my pelvis had been rotated, causing a great deal of pain in my lower back area. I began to see chiropractors, physical therapists, etc., sometimes as often as twice a week; often the treatments themselves were very painful. After many years of trying many different modalities of bodywork, I was still left with a lot of pain every day, and as an example, it could take me several minutes just to get out of bed in the morning. Lifting my feet up to lower them off the bed was one motion that my back did not care for at all! I also sported around a quite pronounced limp; I now call it my "penguin walk". Any misstep could bring forth pain that would literally make me shout, and it could be days or weeks before I got back to my "normal" level of discomfort. After over twelve years of this type of living, I had simply accepted my situation.
One day in November of ‘95, a friend of mine asked me if I wanted to check some new work that, according to the brochure was useful to sufferers of a very long list of conditions and symptoms. I remember telling my friend that if anything was that good, there would be a line out the front door to get some! After trying many different things over the years that never had any lasting effect, I had become very skeptical, but I agreed to go with my friend anyway.
As it happened, I wound up being a model for the presenter (Don Kipp) to demonstrate with. This fellow "assesses" my structure, high shoulder here, pelvis forward there, and so on. After the assessment, he worked on me for about ten or fifteen minutes.
The results were, and are, astounding!! The "after" assessment I’m sure would be interesting to other practitioners of bodywork, but all I know is that my pain was 95% gone, and it took my limp with it! I got more lasting relief in fifteen minutes of NER, than had been achieved in YEARS of other systems, and the treatment wasn’t painful either. More importantly to me, these results were not temporary, requiring frequent "tune-up" visits or a dependency on this treatment. Sound too good to be true? That’s what I thought too, but it worked in spite of my skepticism,
I never realized how much I let pain run my life. There were so many things that I just wouldn’t consider doing because the price (pain) wasn’t worth it. Things that I enjoyed like football, softball, etc., even taking a walk in the mountains would carry some price, and I had become less and less willing to pay it.
Now I can live my normal life again! I don’t wake up and spend the first thirty minutes of EVERY day dealing with pain and hyping myself beyond it to function. I don’t limp around like a character in some bad western. There have been some surprising emotional results with this newfound freedom. I didn’t realize how limited I had become mentally as well as physically.
In short, I would highly recommend this treatment to anyone, as it has certainly been a turning point for me.
To Whom It May Concern,
It is with appreciation and high regard that I am taking the time to write this letter of recommendation for Don Kipp and the dramatically effective therapeutic healing modality Neuroenergetic Release® (NER) which Don has developed.
I have known Don Kipp for several years through our mutual involvement in an international organization as well as having had successful treatment from him for a number of physical problems I had been experiencing . The problems which I am referring to included chronic neck pain and stiffness following cervical fusion 14 years ago especially after playing tennis. I also had ongoing sinus congestion which I believed would eventually lead me to surgery.
Don works holistically with his patients to balance them on postural, structural and neural levels effecting their entire being. With his deep understanding of anatomy and physiology along with years of study in traditional as well as alternative healing modalities, Don has developed one of the most effective, lasting and painless methods to create beneficial change in the body that I have experienced. Don Kipp's focus is on wholeness and how all aspects are interrelated when it comes to healing. His technique is virtually painless and often profound change is experienced in just one visit. This was the case for me.
Let me begin with how Don's treatment with NER has benefited me in relation to the chronic pain and neck stiffness I was previously experiencing from cervical fusion. After the surgery and for the following 14 years I often had to depend on pain medication for relief. I tried chiropractic treatments, massage therapy and other healing modalities, which occasionally would give me some relief but it never lasted. I thought I would have to live with pain for the rest of my life until I experienced the lasting benefits of NER. After only 2 treatments I found I no longer needed pain medication. I also noticed a dramatic improvement in my posture and physical mobility overall. Another major benefit to NER is that it doesn't have to be ongoing treatment. All I needed was two treatments and it has lasted!
An additional benefit of this treatment for me was my ability to play tennis again without having to endure pain afterwards. Not only does my body feel better after a game, my game has improved dramatically. My overall physical strength, stamina, agility and flexibility have greatly improved. Simply put I am able to pound the ball like never before. This is all directly attributable to NER treatment.
As I mentioned at the beginning of this letter, I also had ongoing sinus problems and was not able to breath normally through my nose. I was always needing decongestants and nasal sprays and had finally resigned myself to the fact that I'd probably need surgery if I was ever to get lasting relief. One treatment from Don with Neuroenergetic Release and my nasal passages were unblocked and I walked out of there breathing through my nose for the first time that I can remember! It was that quick and easy.
I highly recommend Don Kipp’s Neuroenergetic Release® system both for patients seeking quick lasting relief and for health professionals who would like to learn an extremely effective and efficient therapeutic modality.
The first two-day weekend of the NER seminar I attended, I must admit I felt a bit overwhelmed, and didn't know how I could hope to do what Don does. The second half of the seminar I completed in Lakewood Colorado. Things started coming together, making sense and yes I was able to practice the release points successfully. Don had a wonderful persistence and presence in guiding me through this process.
For me, receiving three sessions of Don's NER work has been subtle but profound. The postural analysis I had done initially revealed a 35-degree forward rotation of my pelvis. This reduced to 7 degrees after my first session two months ago, and has held at that. This, along with several other postural / structural changes effected, has left me with an awareness when standing upright and walking, I feel more upright and balanced. I have also appreciated the changes as I am in a sitting posture and doing the marshal art form of tai chi; It is as if whether still or in motion, less physical effort is required. I have also had recurrent neck pain and tension related to heavy lifting and whiplash injuries. Since the NER sessions with Don I've noticed increased freedom of mobility, decreased muscle tension, and comparatively little pain in my neck area.
It has been inspirational for me to study with Don, personally experience his work, and get to know him. I believe that the NER technique he has developed has great healing potential, and is a wonderful compliment to my bodywork repertoire.
