Testimonials

"My name is Livnat Hai-Choron and I brought my newborn to Phyllis Gordon because he failed two hearing tests. First hearing test took place when my son was two days old, he failed the test on the left ear. Second hearing test took place when my son was three weeks old and again he failed the test on the left ear. The Audiologist said there could be trapped amniotic fluid in the ears. At that point I decided not to wait for miracles and simply go to Phyllis, who also resolved my daughter's colic and acid reflux issues when she was four months old. When my son was four weeks old I took him to Phyllis. During the same treatment we both clearly heard fluid going down my son's tiny body from the face area to the bladder area. We saw Phyllis again a week later, when my son was five weeks old. She did another treatment on him. By the end of the second treatment his face completely changed. It turned very symmetrical, as I have noticed in before treatment and post treatment photos Phyllis and I took. The next morning my son had his third hearing test. My son passed the test on both ears and that was the end of this ordeal. Thank you Phyllis Gordon from sparing my son from continuous, more intervening hearing tests."

"I have had neck and upper back pain since being in a car accident when I was 6, and craniosacral therapy was the most effective pain management therapy I found. I started seeing Phyllis Gorden when I moved to New Jersey and needed to find a new therapist. Phyllis had an excellent blend of professional detail and personal attention.  She used a holistic approach that addressed both what was going well and what needed tweaking in all areas of my health, not just physical.  Her craniosacral sessions effectively kept my pain at bay, and her perceptive questions during therapy were always right on target.  She taught me more about how my body holds emotions, allowing me to read my physical signals better.  I have moved out of the local area now, but I still think of her warmly and appreciate the influence she has had in my life!"

“It's a shame that LinkedIn doesn't include a category for "Healers," because that's the category I would need to describe Phyllis. A few years ago, I was facing a challenging procedure and turned to Phyllis. Using a combination of profound expertise in her field of work, and something I can only describe as pure magic, Phyllis gently and painlessly realigned not only my neck and jaw, but also my energies. Her touch is informed, expert, and sure, and she brings the highest level of skill and integrity to her work.It is my pleasure to write this recommendation on her behalf."

"I went to Phyllis for help with the tendonitis in my left arm/elbow, brought about (most likely) by playing my instrument. She zeroed in immediately on the spots that needed work with precision and an intuitive "radar", and I left feeling better than I had in weeks. Phyllis also gave me some stretches that have continued to improve the stiffness."

~Jacqueline Stern, Cellist, Tenafly, NJ

Phyllis has become essential for our healthcare needs.Her extensive knowledge, coupled with her gentle manner and compassion, makes her the ideal healer.She truly understands our individual needs and we are fortunate to have found her."

~M.E.B., NJ

"As an Occupational Therapist who has had training in a variety of manual therapy approaches, I can say with confidence that Phyllis Gordon has remarkable skills.Part of my initial impetus to seek some of that training was the experience of seeing Phyllis do a demonstration of craniosacral treatment at a program sponsored by the NJ Occupational Therapy Association.

To the untrained eye, she seemed to do nothing but hold her fingers in the ears of the volunteer patient but, to my amazement, one of the patient's hips (which had been in a somewhat abnormal position) slowly moved into perfect alignment... and the patient walked more comfortably.I have been treated by Phyllis, have had her treat family members and clients, and have participated in advanced training seminars which she has taught.I have seen her successfully address a wide range of problems including musculoskeletal, visceral, and even orthodontic issues.Great hands and a caring heart."

~Rochelle Bukatman Tropp

"A career in advertising has taught me to take testimonials with more than a grain of salt. Call me skeptical or narrow minded, I know nothing about cranial sacral therapy and don't believe in healers.

But after living with unrelenting pain caused by four arthritic vertebrae and stenosis throughout my neck--not to mention the frustration caused by physical therapy that brought no relief and equally unresponsive physicians--I turned to you for help thinking I had nothing to lose.

I could never have anticipated how much I stood to gain. You instinctively zeroed in on each area of discomfort and with soothing precision calmed every one--restoring not just my mobility but my sense of self-sufficiency. I am feeling better than I have in months and optimistic that debilitating pain is not part of my future. I still don't believe in healers. But I certainly believe in you, your professionalism, and your gift for making people feel better.

Thank you so much."

~Monica Rosenberg

"I began therapy in the hope of resolving my TMJ and pelvic discomfort. Phyllis amazed me by knowing exactly where my body was structurally imbalanced as well as the stressors in my life that were contributing to these imbalances.

My issues were quickly corrected. and most importantly, Phyllis gave me tools to prevent reoccurrences and to prevent new issues from forming. The skills Phyllis taught me have changed my life and allowed me to create the wonderful, balanced life I now enjoy. Phyllis is in a league of her own! I will continue to refer people to her every chance I get!"

~Dr. Suzanne Wolfe, Chiropractor, Myrtle Beach, SC

“After many years of severe episodic tinnitus and vertigo, I was depleted from struggling to get through the day and anxious that I would have another debilitating episode. With the treatment I received from Phyllis, my symptoms have been substantially relieved.

I’ve been able to reengage life positively—with a smile.I never imagined I could be so much better! Phyllis gordon is a true healer.”

~Dr. Barry Klein, Psychologist, Millburn, NJ

“I suffer from weakness, a loss of muscle tone, and decreased range of motion in my leg as a result of degenerative disc disease, severely limiting my normal activities. Phyllis assessed the problem and developed a treatment plan that dramatically improved my symptoms and allowed me to return to a more secure and active lifestyle.

Phyllis’ gentle but firm approach to treatment is extremely supportive and helps her patients through the physical and emotional challenges they face. Her professionalism and compassion are evident in everything she does.”
