“Words cannot express how grateful I have been for Rick’s exceptional skill and care…Over the years I have pursued every healing path I could find…Each of these interventions was helpful, but still I found myself stuck – in continuing pain, depression, and anxiety that so often accompany a chronic condition. I began to resign myself to what I called the “new normal.” Then I found Rick…Rick combines knowledge gleaned during his long career as a physical therapist with unique methods based on new developments in neuro-physiology. Add to that Rick’s training as a Reiki Master, his compassion, and his gentle spirit and you have a gifted healer. Rick’s unique approach recognizes the powerful connections between emotions, the brain, and the body. His treatment methods are unconventional, but they have been profoundly beneficial for me. We are so blessed to have Rick in Durango!”

“My life has changed immensely after learning TRE’s from Rick. Chronic pain kept me bed-ridden at times, unable to find joy in life. Now I can hike, bike, kayak and garden. Tension Releasing Exercise was easy to learn and Rick’s coaching and care has allowed me to get my life back. I do TRE’s for only a few minutes daily and never need pain meds.

Before seeing Rick, I would have mild panic attacks over almost anything that was stressful…At night, I would toss and turn, sometimes taking an hour or more to finally fall asleep…I would pace as I thought… After my first appointment, I noticed that my breathing was calm and deep. That night I also noticed something amazing; I could sit or stand still…Now, if I do get stressed, I can recognize it and quell it.…In short, seeing Rick and getting his help has completely changed me for the best, and I owe him my life, because I believe he may have saved it.

Our son suffered from stress and anxiety, which affected his health prompting heart palpitations…The very first session with Rick started a tremendous change. He could sit still and talk, carry on conversations without pacing about…He can relax, he can remain calm through stressful activities…He no longer comments about how many heart palpitations he had during the day. His confidence in himself has improved greatly… Rick has made tremendous changes in our son that will help him throughout his life. There are not enough ways to thank Rick for the help he has given our son and us!

“Rick, all I can say is “Thank you”… I have had to compensate in order just to walk bent over in pain. At the first appointment you used a new procedure to re-balance my muscles and free up the operation of my hip, back, shoulders, neck, and legs. My body is in heaven without pain and I now walk upright with shoulder, back, and head up…Thanks”.

“I broke my neck in 1975 at the age of five, and had a C1-C2 fusion in 1983. In 2001 I had a 3rd degree AC shoulder separation surgery. Needless to say, I was a wreck in my neck and shoulder area. By 2007, I was beginning to experience pain and immobility in my neck region…I received standard physical therapy for a few months. No progress was made; so I decided to give Rick a try with his “new” method. After 2 sessions, I no longer experienced the pain and discomfort that I was living with. Within a month, I was back on my mountain bike. The treatments are odd and peculiar, but they really do work…I am very satisfied with what Rick has done to me. I highly recommend you try out his “mad skillage”.

“I woke up one morning with my right shoulder in pain. I couldn’t raise my arm and had little strength in my arm. I had to wear a sling to manage the pain. I came to see Rick and he used the PRRT technique… By the end of the session, I had regained most of the range of motion in my shoulder with no pain. By that evening, I had full range of motion also pain free. Now weeks later, my shoulder continues to be pain free. Truly amazing! Thanks Rick!”

After five months of counseling with two podiatrists, a spine doctor, and two surgeons regarding my foot and ankle pain, the only option offered to me was surgery. Fortunately a friend recommended I see Rick Stockwell…Not only did Rick solve my foot and ankle problems after several weeks of skillful and patient treatment, he also gave me relief from the headaches and anxiety I had been tolerating after Gamma Knife radiation surgery on my ear (14 months ago)… After his skilled manipulations and massage released the tension, my body has relaxed from “head to toe”. I feel that I am regenerated and given a normal life once again. How exciting to be given this new chance!

“Feeling great since my first visit. I don’t know what he did, but he put his hands on me and I was healed. It felt like magic. Thank you” (Patient’s comments when she called to cancel further visits as they were not needed).

“I am a believer in the PRRT technique, which Rick uses…After a thorough assessment, Rick mixed traditional physical therapy with PRRT…When I saw a massage therapist who knows my body very well, she was amazed to find that my body was “completely clear” and left her without any specific problem to focus on. This was after only 3-4 visits to Rick…I love PRRT and wish I could do it long-term”.

“I mentioned that I had an old injury to the left side of my neck and shoulder from 1992, from which I have been having pain and numbness in my shoulders since then…That lingering numbness in my left back/shoulder area has been all but eliminated…I have the utmost faith in Rick. He is gentle and kind, and has an intuitive knowledge of where and how to ease any pain the body might have”.

“I have seen chiropractors, massage and pressure point therapists, and acupuncturists. I would always get short relief…This was a cycle I was tired of… After the first treatment four months ago, my shoulders relaxed greatly. And the amazing thing is my shoulders have stayed relaxed. Since I started four months ago, my posture has straightened and I have gained ½ inch in height. The cycle of tightness in my shoulders has been broken. I feel so much better and I am amazed how few treatments have been required… I am so happy that I have found PRRT therapy, and we are fortunate to have someone in Durango who is trained in PRRT”.
