Lisa Citarella has been treating our daughter (16) for the past 4 months for complications due to scoliosis. When Odelia first started seeing Lisa, she was in a lot of pain and could not even bend over to tie her shoes. Through a very careful, thorough examination and therapy plan, Odelia is now getting ready to play volleyball for her high school team this fall.
I cannot say enough about Lisa’s professionalism, vast knowledge, and absolute optimism in treating Odelia. She always answered any of our questions promptly and followed up about any concerns. It is obvious that not only is Lisa a real expert in her field but she really loves what she does. We feel very fortunate to have been under Lisa’s supervision. Plus, she is an absolute gem of a person.
Lisa is an amazing, knowledgeable and experienced personal trainer, and has made all the difference for me in recovering from post-partum complications. Lisa’s approach to corrective exercise and body awareness has been an invaluable tool – I am stronger and regaining functionality faster than I ever thought possible. She comes to every appointment prepared, and worked closely with my physical therapist to ensure consistency in treatment. I love that she is able to adjust my routine on the fly when I am having trouble executing an exercise. I am so grateful to have found her!
Lisa is smart, patient, and inspiring. She observes me carefully, consults with my physical therapist, and gives clear instructions. Lisa insists on appropriate core strength and body positioning first, which keeps me safe and helps me gauge my daily activities. Lisa is thorough and has the know-how to get me from one level to the next, all the while being able to listen to me, adjust to my input, and explain the relevance of each exercise.
Lisa is amazing. She has pushed me hard and it has really helped. She was always positive and upbeat even when I was feeling discouraged. I feel very lucky to have Lisa helping me because she gets just as excited, if not more, when I see small improvements in the way my body works and my ability to play sports without pain.
I absolutely love working with Lisa. Not only has she taught me how to exercise safer and smarter, she’s also taught me so much about my body and how it works. I no longer get pain after every workout and am feeling healthier, stronger and back to my life! Her knowledge of the body and it’s mechanics are superior…she really is the best!!
