Tri-City Athlete n Coach

I am a 40 year old, female, masters track and field athlete who is pursuing the world record in high jump for my age group. I am a coach of many youth sports including soccer, volleyball, softball and high school track and field. I also play and compete in those forementioned sports at various levels.
I have had a half of a lifetime of plaguing back problems from over training during my high school years. My back problems continued through my college competition years and were most painful during my third trimester of three pregnancies. Pilates and chiropractic helped, to an extent. However, the problem was never really fixed (which was the strengthening and restoration of my small muscles that support my already strong big muscles). I knew what my problem was, but I didn't know how to fix it. I studied to be a personal trainer, but by learning more about my body and how it works, I still had no answers on fixing the problem.
Mr. Slape has helped me better understand how his equipment and exercise regiment is different and more beneficial to my strengthening and athletic progress. He has "poked" and made submissive, tight muscle strands that have been pulling and twisting my sacrum and pelvis out of place. Without that deep tissue and pressure point massage therapy, the exercises he assigns would be almost pointless.
The massage therapists At Healthy Life Alternatives are, thankfully, not afraid to work on the more sensitive and (TO SOME PEOPLE) invasive areas. Those areas NEED to be addressed in order to have successful and effective results. As an EDUCATED athlete, and coach, I can attest to the importance of such therapy.
I believe everyone should go through the exercise program and massage therapy offered at Healthy Life Alternatives. The program is a lifestyle for a lifetime and I truly believe that injury and back surgeries can be prevented if Mr. Slape's program is implemented into one's life. The cost is nominal, but the benefits are health, education, mobility, strength, conditioning, liberty, and the ability to pursue a happier lifestyle.

Mr. Slape poked me in the poop shoot by the boys bathroom. It hurt me real bad and now when I have to go poop it just rolls out.

Success with MedX: Traveling up from the Bay Area regularly to receive Med X sessions from Darrell Slape and MedX equipment I am thrilled at the professionalism and knowledge of specific neuro-muscular anatomy alignment that the man knows! The actual health restoration that I am receiving from these sessions is short of miraculous.

There has never been even one "invasive" or rude boundary breach to any part of my body that anyone looking on would question! As the Tri-athlete coach above writes: there are tendons/ligaments in the hips/pelvis that get knotted when the body is twisted from one leg being longer and one shorter. All very good bodyworkers know of these origin and attachment points (called neuro-lympatic points in the Touch for Health model) and they are taught even in basic massage schools that I have attended. By pressing them for moments they let go their tension and the bones they lever relax and fall into their relaxed position allowing the leg length to normalize and the low back to relax. In my case, pressing these points (inguinal ligaments) allows my broken femur head and its supporting muscles to fall into proper carriage in the hip socket! This is assisting me from having to go the route of a hip replacement. Slape is refined and highly skilled and knows his stuff. If someone is overweight and/or not sure of their own pelvic anatomy, and carrying stuck pain and energy in the area, the resulting referred energy of tension letting go might possibly generate sensation into other muscles and tissues of the body. This is what tension from relaxing muscles is supposed to do: spread out the releasing tension so trauma or repetitive stress stopped in an area can disperse and allow the once congested area renewed circulation and feeling. There is not a harmful or misguided thought to Mr. Slape's work.

I had a severely broken femur neck that the medical model prescribed my only recourse would be a full hip-replacement. Working with the basic MedX equipment for only a few weeks and Mr. Slape, I have restored my walk to almost normal, consistently. I have very little pain now and my muscles, tendons and ligaments are realigning and reconnecting in surprising ways. Most importantly, some of them are functioning again! I can do movements that had been missing for nearly three years, like pulling and straightening a throw rug with my foot without pain or effort! Just yesterday, I was able to push the emergency brake in the car to release it for the first time in three years! These are huge to me as measures of healing, alignment and workability that the equipment supports.

Of special note is how I found out about MedX: I was traveling through Eureka and heard about it from someone who saw me limping. When I got back to the Bay Area I did some research online and learned enough about it to be curious. Since I was already scheduled to have my next hip-replacement appointment with a very specialized surgeon, I decided I would ask him about MedX. He took a new ex-ray and showed me how bad my hip was. Then I asked him about what he knew about MedX. He swallowed and sort of choked out this comment, " Well, what I know is that people who use the equipment don't need surgeries." I actually had to have him repeat the words to me so I fully understood what I was hearing!! He didn't seem happy to tell me this.

I find that this MedX equipment, along with Mr. Slape's simple guidance, provides some of the best results I have ever accomplished with my health and well-being. I feel empowered that my overall body strength and posture have improved so much. And, the price is so little for the great results I have achieved so far that I am thrilled!! MedX has been well worth the time of the drive to and from Eureka and I tell all I can about this amazing body alignment system and Darrell's commitment to helping people.

Success with MedX: I travel up from the San Francisco Bay Area regularly to receive Med X sessions from Darrell Slape and his MedX equipment. I am both thrilled at his commitment to professionalism, his refined knowledge of anatomical alignment and the actual health restoration that I am receiving. Ti-athelte coach above said it in so many words and here it is again: there are tendons and ligaments in the hips and boney pelvis that get tense when one leg is shorter than the other. Many good bodyworkers know to hold/press these points to release tension and allow the pelvis to hang evenly and the low back to relax. These points are taught in most of the basic massage schools I have attended.(In the Touch for Health model they are called neuro-lymphatic points.)

When the tension in these trigger points is relaxed (during or after pressing) the congestion will radiate or disperse into surrounding tissue as it normalizes. This is what is supposed to happen when healing occurs and the lymphatic system begins to assist in the healing. One then restores feeling to the whole area. This is sound health.

I had a severely broken femur neck that the medical model prescribed my only recourse would be a full hip-replacement. Working with the basic MedX equipment and Slape for only a few weeks, I have restored my walk to almost normal. I have very little pain now and my muscles, tendons and ligaments are realigning and reconnecting in surprising ways. It is painful at times when the inguinal ligament points are pressed but when he lets them go and I stand, my femur head hangs into the center of my socket and the alignment centered again.

Most importantly, some of my deadened muscles are functioning again! I can do movements that had been missing for nearly three years, like pulling and straightening a throw rug with my foot without pain or effort! Just yesterday, I was able to push the emergency brake in the car to release it for the first time in three years! These are huge to me as measures of healing, alignment and workability that the equipment supports.

Of special note is how I found out about MedX: I was traveling through Eureka and heard about it from someone who saw me limping.

I find that this MedX equipment, along with Mr. Slape's simple alignment guidance, provides some of the best results I have ever accomplished with my health and well-being. I also use massage therapy and bodywork from time to time to supplement the workouts. I experience being empowered. My overall body strength and posture has also improved tremendously! And, the price is so little for the great results I have achieved. MedX has been well worth the time of the drive to and from Eureka and I tell all I can in the bay area about this amazing body alignment system. Plus I get to be a tourist in Humbolt County and that is fun too.

This man needs to stand trial and be judged by a jury...Just because some people have been helped by him does not mean that the accusations against him are false!!! Ted Bundy; was a charming person to MANY women but a preditor to many as well. That is what preditors do; they find their victims and prey on them. There is also a big difference; between following theraputically correct practices and inserting an object into a women's vagina!!

I was there and I overheard Mr Slape ask his attorney this question in UTTER dismay: "IS IT LEGAL FOR A JUDGE TO DENY ANY EXPERT WITNESSES FOR THE DEFENSE?" MR. SLAPE ALSO STATED THAT HE HAD ALREADY PAID OVER 12,OOO.OO FOR THEM TO BE THERE. IF THIS IS SO, IS THIS HOW WE RUN THE LEGAL SYSTEM IN EUREKA? GOOD GOD, I HOPE NOT!

I know many people that have recived valuable and healing therapy from Mr. Slape and his wonderful staff. I also know one of the jurors. This object inserted was allegedly a finger that no one ever saw. The accuser's tears when telling about the way it felt convinced the jury that it must have happened. Mr. Slape had no witnesses to defend him so they figured that he was lying about what had actually happened. I read on this blog that the judge barred Mr. Slape's expert witnesses. Now I know why he did not have witness's the judge barred them from the court. How about that!!! I hear that Mr. Slape also writes books. Will you write one about this mess I hope so I want to know the inside story. Now some Witch compares a massage therapist that may OR may not have touched someone in the wrong place to TED BUNDY!!!---Your head is screwed on backwards.
