After exhausting traditional allopathic and non-allopathic approaches with neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, osteopaths and chiropractic care I continued to have episodes of back, thigh and leg pain. I did have temporary relief with epidural injections, physical therapy and acupuncture, as well as non-steroidal anti-inflammatories. I was informed by my health care providers, that surgical intervention was available with no guarantee of a successful outcome. I met Gina through a NMR website (Neuromuscular Reprogramming). Gina began treating my low-back, thigh and leg pain approximately one year ago. During that time, she has isolated and corrected weak muscle groups and nerve damage that contributed to my symptoms. She combines the qualities of inquisitiveness, intelligence and intuition in her care. She is a master body worker who diligently tests and retests muscle strength, range of motion and nerve function to find those patterns that are sources of pain.
As a physician, I am impressed with Gina’s knowledge of anatomy and her general concern for her client’s well being. My pain has decreased and my ability to perform activities of daily living has significantly improved under Gina’s care. The improvement has allowed me to become more physically active and participate in a daily exercise program. I am grateful to Gina and the care she has provided me. ~RM
I have been working with Gina for a decade. Why? When I have hurt myself, she has helped me heal faster and with no residual effects. After years of slumping over a keyboard and a steering wheel she has restored my posture to that of a recognizable human, which has also had an effect on my health and even headaches. Though she is also effective when you just need to lose the stress and turn into goo on the table, she has worked on things that have me healthier, more resilient and because of that, even happier. She has been an important part of my absorbing whatever life has thrown my way, and I know you will be as grateful as I am for knowing and working with her.

Gina has helped me enormously in my recovery from many years of sports injuries and multiple related surgeries. She does a lot of NMR with me and I have regained function that I thought had been permanently lost. Gina is both very caring and a master of her craft. She is a true healer. ~Max M
I don’t think I have ever properly thanked you for fixing my hip. After almost a year of increasing pain as a result of knee surgery, I am so grateful to have found you!
From the first appointment (when you so graciously made time for me on a holiday weekend), I was gradually healed.
Your patience with explaining what you were doing & why made so much sense. It took some time but has been so worth it, since I no longer have that problem.
You have also been helpful with other issues so I’m planning to see you again as soon as I return from my travels! Thanks again, ~Barbara
I have been seeing Gina for over 16 years. Her strong hands and broad knowledge of the body and how it functions has kept me limber and pain free. If I have a specific ache or pain she can help me identify the area and can almost always alleviate it. She is a wonder. -Judy S (70+)
I came to see Gina for help with long term shoulder pain. After multiple surgeries and a diagnosis of frozen shoulder, I had limited range of motion and lived each day in chronic pain.
After just one session with Gina, I was able to put my arm into positions that had been unachievable for many years. Her knowledge and skill is nothing short of amazing, and she has given me a renewed sense of hope for a pain free future. -Teresa

If I could I would get a massage from her every day.” -P.G.

“Gina Rathbun has magic hands and the brain power to tailor her massage work to your body. A visit with Gina will align your body, raise your spirit and completely relax you after a hard day or week. Before moving away, I sought Ms. Rathbun’s massages every two weeks to stay complete and reap full benefit of Gina’s body work. Gina is the best I’ve been to in my more than 40 years of regularly receiving masssages. I highly recommend her.” – M. D.
