“The doctor wanted me to have two Total Knee replacements, I didn’t want to, so he said go see Vickie. The aquatic program helped me from having knee surgery for 5 years.”

Dolly Chambers

“I could have started with the water exercises sooner after my auto accident, since the water is so much friendlier.  The stomach crunches were excellent, I did not have to engage my knee (injured in the accident) and the upper back and shoulder exercises are great too, since my rotator cuffs are such a mess.”

- Garry K.

“Materials are clear and water-proofed.  After one session, I had 30% decreased tightness in my low back, after one session. Stairs is 100% better, less stress on my knees.  My stiffness in my knees and back went from a 8-9/10 to a 1-2/10.”

Barbara L. K

“The water program gave me the little push I needed to exercise and taught me the correct way to do it.”

Carol W.

“I was in a car accident and tried 7 – 8 months of physical therapy with no pain relief, and my Internist suggested that I try water exercises with Vickie.  After 6 weeks, my pain level was able to go from a 6 – 8 down to a 2-3, depending on my activity level for the day, and pain free if I paid attention.  It was a significant difference, to the point that I could have a normal life.  It was a pain free life for me, and I could have a normal life and do daily activities.  Whereas prior to the water exercises I did not have a pain free life, I did not have a normal life, and I couldn’t do daily activities.”

Stephanie L.

“What I learned from Vickie’s water exercise program, I learned proper techniques that I put to practice with my daily routine and use it routinely to train my patients.”

Mani .J

Occupational Therapist

“I am 66 years old man living with my wife in Brooklyn.  I have multiple orthopedic issues that

make it impossible to walk any real distance or to swim laps, something I had done for many years.  I was getting no exercise at all, and that in itself was making me feel unfit and unwell

After four sessions with Vickie, I have the beginnings of a regular water-based exercise routine I can do without pain and have regained some abilities on land that I had lost.  I can already climb stairs without hesitation and navigate inside our apartment without using walls and furniture to steady myself.”

Harry K.

“This class at the was an 8!”
