Has it ever been difficult for you to “stomach” a situation? Have you ever heard yourself saying (or thinking) “that person is a pain in my neck!” Or, wishing that you had “the heart” to say something that’s been on your mind? Have you ever wished you “had the guts” to do something you’ve been dreaming of? Our language references the fact that our emotions and bodies are connected, and yet most of us go about our lives oblivious to this . . . until . . . we get sick, or injured.
I had a pain in my neck that was incredibly painful. There was no accident, or moment of injury, I just woke up one day and my neck was out. And it stayed out – despite chiropractors, and a very skilled physical therapist. Sure, they figured out I had a leg length difference, and one pelvic bone smaller than the other, but despite all treatment (including a ¾ inch lift in my shoe) my neck would just not stay in alignment.
After several months of very little progress, the physical therapist I was seeing referred me to Beata. “This might be an emotional issue . . .” he offered gently. (And had I not been in so much pain, and desperate for help, I might have been offended.) “This is who I see when I get stuck and need some help,” my physical therapist said. “I think she can help you, too.” And he was right.
I have come to believe that our bodies reflect our thoughts and emotions – and that my body was just “talking” (and talking, and talking!) to me until, with Beata’s assistance, I became quiet and listened. Beata’s kinesiology treatments have helped guide me into entering a more trusting and communicative relationship between my body and my feelings. See, I had been turning away from myself; my gifts, my life’s purpose, and investing in a relationship that was not truly supporting my life. And though my mind was ignoring these things, my body could not.
I am so grateful for the physical and emotional strength, flexibility, and awareness that Beata’s work has brought to my life. I am truly blessed!

I came to Beata because I had a lot of back pain during my pregnancy. It was amazing how Beata was able to help me to alleviate my back pain using such a gentle approach. Once my baby was born, she also helped me get back into shape and she treated my new born just to support his development with the cranial sacral therapy. Eventually, she treated my whole family as my husband and older son were in a car accident. She has been a support to my whole family.

After 10 years of jaw pain I just assumed it was something I was just going to have to live with. It was at its worst when I was 17, at which point I could only open my mouth 60% of the way and was in serious pain all day. Since then I have seen an Osteopath, who got it to a "manageable" level, and several chiropractors that had little impact. I had never thought to see a physical therapist for TMJ, but when I heard another person talk about how Beata had cured their TMJ I made an appointment immediately. Within the first session I saw a huge decrease in my jaw pain and by the end of the third session I had full mobility of my jaw back. I cannot explain how amazing it is to be rid of a "condition" after 10 years of living with it. Thank you Beata!
Beata’s knowledge of healing at a deeper level combined with her compassionate ways have led me on a journey toward wholeness on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level.
I first consulted Beata 3 years ago because of some knee and hip issues. Slowly and skillfully she has helped me peel back the layers of the onion that are me. I have learned to recognize and release long-held beliefs that are so much a part of me that they have imbedded themselves in my physical being.
Through working with Beata, my overall alignment is much better, my long-standing hip issue is nearly resolved, and my vision has improved. My emotional health has improved as well. I have learned to recognize that beliefs that have held me in emotionally painful states. Beata has also helped me work with some diagnoses that I would not previously have thought of bringing to a physical therapist.
Beata has been a blessing to me.
A treatment session with Beata Moreno, regardless of the modality in her vast repertoire being used, leaves me consistently changed in a way that is positive and profound. Connecting the physical, emotional, and spiritual parts of our selves when addressing our ailments permits a deeper healing to occur. I recommend her approach to friends, colleagues, and patients alike; there is no one who could not benefit from this work.
I am so grateful for Beata's heart, mind, body, spirit approach to healing. Her ability to get to the "root" cause of my health issues was awesome! I was experiencing so much physical and emotional pain, but I am now on the road to recovery.
Beata Moreno is an amazing healer. I had chronic pain and discomfort in my left shoulder for many years.
I tried routine chiropractic adjustments which offered temporary relief, but the symptoms always returned.
After one session with Beata I better understood what my body (and specifically my shoulder pain) was trying to tell me.
Beata’s approach to holistic physical therapy balances the science of conventional physical therapy with her intuition and her gifts as a healer.
Thanks to her approach, my shoulder symptoms subsided. I highly recommend Beata to my friends and clients.
