"My name is Corissa Levair and I am a woman with many hats. I am a realtor, real estate investor, holistic health practitioner - I am many things. I am learning now how to be a clinical research associate - so a lot of things.
I just completed the 21 Day Pelvis, Legs & Feet program that was offered in June 2022. I had been doing Block Therapy for about 4 months before I started the program, and I knew when I saw Deanna offer this program that I had to jump on board and be a participant in this program as well.
It was really cool for me to do the before and after shots. Even though for myself I didn’t see much in the way of appearance and changes, what I felt after was pretty incredible. Prior to coming to Block Therapy I had had 4 major abdominal surgeries from when I was 26 onward. The last one, which was pretty invasive, was in 2015. In 2018 I had a major health crisis and no-one knew why. My medical doctors didn’t know why, I met with holistic health practitioners and they didn’t know why. I finally met with a functional medicine team and decided to start clearing out some of the things that were going on in my gut. We found out that I had parasites and viruses and bacteria and all sorts of things but we didn’t know why. I do travel so that was one of the things that they thought maybe I picked up things when I travelled. But we are mammals, we all pick up things in what we eat and walking barefoot. We were just trying to rule things out. While my health did get a little better from 2018 - 2022, my health wasn’t getting as good as I wanted it to be.
Last fall my friend introduced me to Block Therapy and I kind of hemmed and hawed about it and I thought, no I don’t think so - that doesn’t seem very right for me. Then when I started digging deeper into why I was feeling the way I was feeling, I realized maybe it was abdominal adhesions from my surgeries that were causing my symptoms. I did research about adhesions and fascia and it led me right back to Deanna and right back to Block Therapy. In January I decided to jump on the bandwagon and I started with the Sampler Program. In a week I experienced tremendous results just with the Sampler Program. For those of you that don’t know what the Sampler Program is, it is an introduction to Block Therapy and you use a rolled up towel. That was pretty incredible for me, just those first few sessions. I decided to get the Starter Package with the two Blocks - the Block Buddy and the Block Baby.
In those few short weeks of doing the Sampler Program and the Starter Program, I stopped reacting to certain foods. This is huge for me - you have to understand - I would eat something that I had normally eaten for my entire life and I would break out in hives and rashes. I stopped reacting. My GI system was on a 7 day cycle - I was still eliminating every day but my cycle was only pushing things through every 7 days. After the Starter Program I was down to 3 days, and thats huge. For those of you who understand how the gut works, that is huge.
When I saw that Deanna was offering the 21 Day Pelvis Legs & Feet program I knew from listening to her and my own research that our adhesions and fascia work from the bottom up. We are like trees. I felt like I had been a palm tree swaying in the wind instead of a steady oak tree. I went with the 21 Day Pelvis, Legs & Feet program. After those 3 weeks, my elimination is now down to 18 - 24 hours instead of 3 days. I feel better. My whole life I felt tilted and I was clumsy - I was always bumping in to things. I feel sturdy and strong in my gait. My feet feel like they are gripping the ground instead of gliding around on the ground. I feel like I have more control over my body and how I move. Because of my one surgery - I have a scar from hip to hip - I have very little belly fat because of the way the surgery was done. My belly was hanging over the top of that scar like a folded piece of paper. Now it’s more flat. My belly has pulled back into my body instead of falling forward. This means my lower back pain is almost gone because the way the adhesions were working, they were pulling my whole belly forward which meant my whole lower back was being pulled forward. Now my posture is almost straight. I still need to work on pulling my shoulders back a little bit more. I have a lot of work to do. But I feel like I have such a good direction now that I didn’t have 6 months ago.
To me, Block Therapy is life changing. I would encourage anybody to do it. Start with the Sampler Program. What have you got to lose? Its very basic, very easy and it gets you breathing the way you are supposed to be breathing with our diaphragm. Having full breaths and breathing with our belly. So we start there and then working through the Starter Program. Its amazing what you will feel. I was so sick, and if I can feel so much better….my life has totally changed around. I am very, very thankful to Block Therapy. And thankful to Deanna and Quinn for all the work that they do in getting this out to the world. We need to be sharing this more. That’s how I feel.
Before Block Therapy, I always felt that I was half way intoxicated with alcohol or something because I was always tipping and bumping into things. Now I feel strong, I feel in control of my body. It is so empowering. In 2018 when my health took a really deep dive I thought, oh my goodness I still have half of my life to live. Is this the way I am going to live my life? Something has to change. Because I can’t live like this. I can’t. Working with the functional medicine team was amazing. They helped to a certain degree. Then me going back through my research and the word adhesion just popped up everywhere. And that was the clincher. Like I said my friend talked to me about it and I was like eh…what is this? When I decided to listen and allow myself to go into the process…Block Therapy was there for me. It has been life changing. Totally life changing for me.
The cherry on top of it all is that I was away from my husband for two weeks - the last week of the program and the week after it - and when he saw me for the first time after those two weeks he was like oh my goodness, you are standing taller and your legs look amazing and your butt is firm and smooth. And I was like…well this didn’t show up in the pictures! But for him to notice these things - a man who hardly notices things - was just the affirmation that I needed that I was on the right track. Because of that I restarted the 21 Day program again because I know I have a lot of work left to do so I’m doing it again. It’s been incredible. I wake up every morning feeling stronger than the day I did before. There is nothing else that I can attribute to that but Block Therapy. I’m not doing anything different. I haven’t changed my diet or exercise routine which is simply walking and biking - walking with my dog and taking bike rides with my husband. On a very random, non-pushing basis. It’s been very good. I am incredibly grateful and thankful to Block Therapy for my new life. And I am just very excited for the future. I am excited to see the changes that will happen in the next 6 months. If my first 6 months with Block Therapy brought about this many changes, what are the next 6 months going to bring? I am very excited to see that."
