Amazing Results – I suffered with terrible foot pain for a decade. Each step I took was painful. Nothing helped until I started a series of treatments with Rama Davis. After the first session, not only did I feel a remarkable difference in my feet and entire body but I felt euphoric, as well. This was a no-brainer -- I was hooked. Rama is a valuable resource for good health and I cannot imagine life without his practice.
LIFE CHANGING HEALER – I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS--My last appointment with Rama was on 9/10/10 and my body has been transformed. I will be 50 this coming April 2011 and my body feels as good or better than when I was in my early 30’s. My treatment started in 7/2010 and I was skeptical on my first few visits, however by my 3rd visit I was sure I had found a “fountain of youth”. I have had on going problems with my lower back, pelvic, left hip, left leg, TMJ and my right shoulder. I had an injury in 05 to my left shoulder and neck, I had surgery on my left shoulder in October 09 due to not getting the right therapy and wish I had found Rama then. After the work Rama did on my left shoulder my range of motion increased by about 60% and the pain was down by at least 40%. Mind you, even though I had been though physical therapy at least 24 times I had not gotten any relief or increased range of motion. My neck is now my biggest concern as far as the pain. The work Rama did on my neck actually help with the stiffness and headaches, I have bulging disks and he is not a miracle worker. My body is still learning the new patterns and getting better every day. Like I said, he is not a miracle maker, but he is a talented and accomplished healer. As time passes on I find that my shoes don’t fit like they use to. The old pattern worn in my shoes really proves to me that my body has changed, it’s like wearing someone else’s shoes. Yes, I had to get new shoes. I also have curves where a woman likes to have curves. His massages are wonderful as well, but the Structural Integration was the key for me. I breath deeper, walk taller, lighter and my posture is incredible, and it hurts to slouch, a constant reminder to be on my sitting bones. Before this work I always complained of having a boney but, well no more. This was the best investment for my well being and health that I could have done. I highly recommend this to anyone that is feeling like your body is giving up on you. I am raising my 3 year old grandson and prior to my visits with Rama I was having a hard time keeping up. Now I can run, jump, skip and play with him without being in pain all night and the next day. I have cut my pain meds almost out of my life, YEAH. I highly recommend this work to anyone. Ladies following one on the sessions my face looked as though I had a mini facelift, my chicken neck and joules have been diminished and my cheeks are more prominent. I will say this again, Rama is not a miracle worker; you have to put in some work. If you would like to talk with me I am sure Rama will get us in touch. By the way he also has some pretty dorky jokes. This man is a professional, he is sensitive to your needs and he is a good listener. My life has been enhanced by knowing Rama Davis. I can’t thank him enough.
Rama Rocks! – I've had rolfing sessions once before in 1995, but never Structural Integration. SI is a completely different (and far more pleasant) experience. Rama is professional, knows what he's doing, explains everything in a comprehensive manner and is a lot of fun to boot! He loves what he does and what more could you ask for when someone is working that intensely to relieve your aches and pains? I've have nine sessions with Rama and I feel my body has changed all over the place for the better. He personalizes each session to you. He does not worry about the time it takes (meaning he is not distracted by the clock)... your session is as long as it takes to achieve that session's goal. I really cannot recommend him enough.
best investment in yourself – i just finished session 10 of the 10 SI series with rama. i had been exploring SI as an option for me due to chronic pain from poor posture and alignment issues. as an active person (soccer, run, snowboard), my chronic knee, hip and back problems were really beginning to impede my performance. i did a lot of research beforehand and was drawn to SI because the process is a permanent change to the body. i chose rama as my practitioner due to his experience with athletes.
my experience through this process has been quite extraordinary. everyone's response to SI is going to be very personal and somewhat different, but to date i've experienced improved quality of breath, improved speed, improved balance and significant improvements with my alignment and posture. others have commented on how i look taller and more relaxed as well. after session 7, i measured my height and i stand nearly an inch taller than i did the last time i measured myself. obviously, i didn't grow; this height "gain" is from the process and my body's own ability to stand taller as rama and i have worked out my frozen fascia.
the whole thing would feel really hippy-dippy to me if not for rama's practicality and coolness factor. rama is a careful and thoughtful practitioner. his professional space is open and clean. he answers all your questions carefully and thoroughly. he explains everything and obviously has great passion for the work. his readily shares his knowledge with you as his client so that you are able to absorb and adopt the changes happening with your body. he is a great listener and sincerely cares that you are feeling and seeing improvement in your body.
i am excited to feel and experience how my body will change over the next months and years. i can not advocate enough for the SI process (i am a convert and it is worth investing your massage therapy dollars at some fancy spa into the SI series). i have recommended rama to numerous friends and teammates because i believe strongly that he is one of the best SI practitioners in southern california.
Actual Results...wow! – After relocating to Los Angeles I sought out a massage therapist to conitnue working on my back (post-car accident) and it took me three MONTHS to find someone in the area who was qualified, trustworthy, and actually commited to improving the body (not just sqeezing a few muscles for a while and leaving me feeling a little sleepy like 99% of other massage practicioners.) Rama Davis is extremely qualified and knowlegeable about his practice and the human body. You can trust his work because his goal is to get you HEALED, not dependant on his services. The things you will learn from him are invaluble as well, and he is a wealth of knowlege in many related areas of natural healing. Just...go call and make an appointment already! He is REALLY that GOOD!
Who knew? – Never again will I go to my $40/hour thai massage guy after having this experience with Rama. Now, I treat my massages like my hair. Why go to Supercuts and pay less for an okay hair cut you have to live with when you can pay more for a fabulous hair cut that will make you look and feel fantastic and more confident?
Up until now, I didn't fully appreciate the difference between a professional and an amateur when it comes to massages. Most therapists ask you where your trouble spot is and then don't spend enough time there. Not Rama, he listened to me and delivered. Most therapists I've been to seem to just go through their routine of a full body massage don't really tune into what you need more of. Not Rama, he was able to find all the sweet spots and really hone in on where I needed work. It seems like most therapists I've been too find the tension and just when it's getting good, they're on to another area that's not nearly as awesome and I want to tell them to go back. Not Rama. He instinctively knew what my body needed. He did this thing with his elbow in my shoulder blades as many times as it needed to really loosen things up and it felt amazing!! And he spent lots of time on one of my favorite spots in between my neck and skull. He used techniques I'd never felt before. I think his deep understanding of the human muscular skeletal structure comes through in the ART of his massage. I'd like to try the Structural Integration series with him someday very soon. Thank you Rama for making me feel amazing!! I'll be back.
