Most people tend to move in the same way most of the time. Compensations have developed in the body, many of which are unnecessary and unhealthy for the joints and muscles. Movement based therapy starts with a complete assessment of how you move in all three planes of motion. Based on the assessment, specific formulated movements are used to help free joint restrictions and create better range of motion and better balance and stability.

After menopause began, I could hardly sleep, waking up after just a couple of hours many nights. This went on for years, where I would get a decent night's sleep here and there, but most nights were full of frustration. I had a virtual session with Shea and slept through the night that night! I listened to the audio Shea made for me every night before bed for the next week I have continue to sleep like a baby! Shea is a magician!

Shea is a compassionate partner in working to eliminate roadblocks in one's thinking. Non-intrusive, gentle, yet extremely powerful and effective. Anxiety levels began dropping shortly after the first session. By second session, I had more peace and calm overall, feelings of self-worth. She is a gentle, kind healer and her work has changed my life. Highly recommend!

Wow! I feel that ever person I know should do coaching with Shea. I was VERY stuck in my life when we started, having a difficult time losing weight, concentrating and running my business. The 1st session did something to my brain that needed to be done for a very long time. I felt such a sense of relief knowing I was going to get better, and I continued to improve week after week. I have just finished my last session and I am definitely a different person than when we started. I feel much more confident, I have lost 14 pounds and I've been able to increase revenue for my business with the new ideas that have come to me during this process.

Since I was a teenager I had a lot of fear and anxiety. My father died when I was young and when that happened I became very afraid of getting sick. Because of that fear, I became sick over and over again. I was too afraid to even go to the doctor because I didn't want to know if something was wrong. Luckily, I grew up and was able to overcome being a hypocondriac, but I was left with daily anxiety. Every day there was a pit in my stomach I could not get away from. That lasted for about 20 years. Then I began having panic attacks that I could not control. That is when I went to see Shea. It was a bit of a process for me. The first thing I experienced was a better mood. I just began feeling better, is the only way I can describe it. The pit in my stomach disappeared. Then I began wanting to change my life. I was in a job I did not love, and I had no idea what my passion was. Suddenly, I began to think about things differently. I began to think about how I wanted my life to be and it seemed easy to make changes. I quit my job and started a business of my own. I honestly still can't believe I made the change so easily. I am now in a place where I love my life and I owe it all to her. I am writing this review because I no longer need her services, but will always be indebted to her.

I had suffered from sciatica pain down my leg for almost a year. I had injections in my back, had gone through physical therapy, and had used other massage therapists to help with the pain. I received some relief from what I was doing prior to meeting Shea, but nothing lasted. A friend recommended I see Shea for medical massage, as it had helped her get rid of her headaches. I was amazed at the difference I felt after the first session. After 3 sessions, my sciatica pain was completely gone. In writing this several months later, my pain has not returned. Shea spent the time to watch how I moved after the pain was gone and gave me specific stretches to do to maintain her work. I have since recommended several people to Shea and she has helped each one!

I drove all the way from SC to get medical massage from one of a kind therapist Shea Shulman for nerve pain down my arm! She not only diligently worked all of my trigger points out and got rid of my pain, but she was super compassionate, genuine, and concerned about my healing! If you are a Florida native, you are missing out big time if you go to a different place. Highly recommended! Five stars experience!

Shea is an amazing medical massage therapist. Her knowledge of the the human body is undeniable. I have been a client of Shea’s for about 8 years and she has seen me through all of my aches and pains including a frozen shoulder. I am truly thankful that I have her in my life.

She is highly skilled and focused on what you need. I had front shoulder pain for several years and had seen several therapists with no change in my condition. I saw Shea for 4 sessions and the pain was gone! Turns out the problem was coming from a chest muscle and not the shoulder muscles. Definitely recommend her treatments.

I have been seeing Shea for many years for massage therapy. Just being an aging man, there always seems to be something I need help with. I have seen Shea for neck pain, low back pain, knee pain, elbow pain and even thumb pain. Every time I see her, she fixes me! I even tell my doctors about her. If you have pain, go see Shea because she will likely fix you too!

After a car accident, I began having severe headaches. I initially contacted my chiropractor, who helped the severity of the headaches. However, they did not go away (I had them daily) and eventually began worsening again. Shea had helped me in the past with low back pain, and I should have contacted her sooner. I had a very bad headache the first day she worked on me. Before the end of the session, my headache was gone. I did two more sessions and did not have to see her for the headaches again. I now see her for a routine monthly maintenance massage and my body feels great! Thank you Shea!

I began having low back pain in my 30's. I played a lot of sports in high school that caught up to me early on, and now being in my early 60's, it has just been a part of my life I deal with. Sometimes it is really bad, and other times it is very manageable. I met Shea through a friend and she felt she could help me. I appreciated that she did not promise to "fix" my back and I felt a massage couldn't hurt. She convinced me to set up a few sessions, and I am glad I did. I felt good after the first session, but by the last session (I did 4 sessions), I felt better than I had in a very long time. What is amazing is that the pain has not returned to the low-level aching pain I would feel on a daily basis, especially in the mornings or after sitting for a long time. With just some daily stretching and a tune up from Shea once in a while, I am doing great. Shea is fantastic!

I developed plantar fasciitis after taking on high intensity workouts. My podiatrist eventually gave me a shot in my foot that helped temporarily. When I met with Shea, she told me that the foot pain was caused by my low back and hip muscles on that side. When she explained how the nerves work and how my back and hip could cause my foot pain, it made sense, especially since I had been dealing with the pain for about 6 months without relief from other things. Sure enough, Shea was right. My foot pain disappeared after three sessions, and she never even touched my foot! I did return for a fourth session where she worked on my foot, but I am not sure it was even needed. I have a better understanding of my body due to this experience and know exactly where to go if I have any other pain in the future.

When I went to see Shea, I was suffering from a lot of knee and hip pain that kept me from exercising. I used to love to go for long walks, but when the knee pain started, I became unable to keep up with my activities. I have had a lot of sadness in my life and as much as I worked on myself in therapy and meditation, it never fully resolved. The pain and inability to exercise made me more depressed. In the first session with Shea, my knee pain and my hip pain were significantly reduced. In fact, the knee pain went away. After the second session, my hip pain was so much better that I began to go for walks again. I was supposed to go back for a third session, but I have been feeling so good that I did not need it. I don't know exactly what she did, but it worked! I feel so much better in my mood and my body!

Shea demonstrates her passions through her actions. She actively seeks out new ways to expand and implement her knowledge, therefore bestowing upon her clients. If you receive therapy from her, you will certainly benefit from her vast skill, as I did.
