Carol's Bio

I have been a therapist for over 10 years. I believed if we could be in perfect posture/alignment we would be happy and healthier. I had so many questions that nobody could answer for me, until I met Deanna.
When I was introduced to Block Therapy, I was instantly hooked, and quickly signed up to be a teacher. I felt this was a great tool to help align us. I then went through the Block Therapist program where Deanna answered all my questions and taught me so much more! I feel as though Block Therapy is the last ‘block’ to my puzzle!
I’m so excited to be part of the Block Therapy community. I'd be honored to help you on your journey!

Spiritual Empowerment Expert

Wende's Bio

I swear I have been the most hesitant Blocker ever!

I was introduced to Block Therapy in March 2018. I was helping my girlfriend, Victoria Goodman, become a Block Therapy Instructor, by being her student model. I cannot tell you I loved Block from the beginning. Truth be told, I dreaded it SO. MUCH. My body was in rough shape, full of trapped inflammation, pain and emotional trauma. It hurt so damn much when I started that I wondered why anyone would voluntarily put themselves through this. When she received her certification, I was ecstatic! No more Block Therapy!

And then………..
Victoria asked me to do a three month assessment with her. I will admit to rolling my eyes before saying I would help.
It wasn't until I did that 3 month daily challenge that I started to notice the difference that Block was making in my life. I was more calm, more focused. My body hurt less and started to move more fluidly. In 3 months, I had some pretty dramatic changes and realignment happen!
Slowly but surely, my pain started to decrease. I started to notice the changes going on in my body. I learned I could control my headaches and migraines without chiropractic help. Speaking of the chiro, I haven’t seen one since October 2018!!

Over the last many years, I have been reversing my chronic pain conditions, to the point I was able to end a 20 year cannabis habit. I used cannabis for pain and mental health issues. Thanks to the Block, I no longer need to use any medications to make my days more manageable. I am happier, healthier and empowered!

If you are seeking 1:1 Block coaching, feel free to reach out. As a Block Therapist, I can help you unwind your chronic issues and regain your own personal empowerment. My husband and I reversed prostate cancer using the Block and fascial releases with my hands. Incredible, right?

I am also a Spiritual Empowerment Expert with over 20 years in the spiritual realm. Energy is my first language and helping people understand that energy is their birthright is my life's work. Be sure to take a look at my website for ways to work with me energetically.

I believe that when you align your cells, you align your life and free yourself from those things that are holding you back.

Breathe and Believe!

Heidi's Bio

Hello, I’m Heidi Hunter. I’m an artist and creative empowerment teacher.  I learned early in my 40 year career in the arts, that a block was a bad thing.  Until now.  I came to Block Therapy ™ in a particularly challenging and personal time.  I felt betrayed by my aging body. I had never been 60. Until Now. I thought I was slowing down, and I didn’t want to. I came to accept chronic pain, anxiety, and physical limitations as permanent. Until Now.

Lesley Graham

Victoria, British Columbia

Block Therapy Instructor
Block Therapist
Certified Natural Health Consultant

Lesley's Bio

As life was unfolding Lesley was experiencing pain in her hands including trigger fingers and nerve damage. The chronic pain interfered with the joy and freedom of movement that made her feel so alive.

At the time she was a stone sculptor and found it increasingly painful to work for even short periods of time. None of the natural healing techniques nor the more traditional treatments were effective in reducing the inflammation or in reducing the pain. She has always been passionate about taking responsibility for her physical and mental well-being and her spiritual and personal growth. Deanna’s book found its way into Lesley’s life. Reading “Fascia Decompression: The Missing Link”, Lesley knew intuitively that her search to find a natural healing modality to get to the source of her condition had ended.

Block Therapy has become the underpinning for her own healing and proactive practice and, as a certified Block Therapy Instructor and a certified Block Therapist, she is now passionately sharing this therapy, exercise, meditative practice and way of life with others. She is grateful to be, once again, living and experiencing the joy that freedom to move without pain allows. Lesley’s purpose now centres on supporting and empowering others to create optimal health and wellbeing for body, mind and spirit in their lives as well.

Justin's Bio

I didn't come to Block Therapy because I was looking for a particular solution.

Generally speaking, I was doing ok!

I had been eating well for years, was taking high quality supplements, had been dabbling in various form of meditation and self exploration, I liked to mountain bike, hike, do yoga and I stretched on a regular basis. I was in decent enough shape and I didn't have any medical concerns to speak of.

But here is what I didn't realize.

My guts were compressed, as was most of my body. I was highly anxious with a taste for worst case scenario thinking. My spine was curved and my body was tense. My right hip and low back pain of 5 years wasn't going away, despite the temporary relief I felt from regular massage and chiropractic care. I wasn't nearly as strong, toned or flexible as I could have been. My breathing was shallow, my diaphragm was barley being used and I was shorter than I needed to be!

Yes - you read that right! I actually gained 2 cm of height in less than a year - as measured by a medical doctor! She was shocked and had to retry the measurement. I thought it was pretty neat for guy in his 40's!

Today, I help busy adults who struggle with poor digestion and unhappy bellies - bloating, pain, discomfort and constipation - find lasting relief through mindful eating, holistic nutrition and Block Therapy!

Stacie's Bio

Stacie is a mother of two teen age boys and a wife of 19 years.  She is a certified Health Care Aide, a Registered Canadian Reflexology Therapist, Licensed Canadian Reflexology Teacher, a doTERRA Essential Oils Specialist, and a Block Therapy Instructor.  
Stacie’s passion for providing one on one client care started back in 1996.  She has been serving the public for over 30 years.  Searching for self care, she randomly scheduled a reflexology treatment and was fascinated by how she felt after just one hour.  She set her focus on reflexology training.  Falling in love with performing the treatment and the results, she registered her business name “The Sole Whisperer” in 2009.   
Starting off as a mobile reflexologist, she has changed many lives with her therapeutic hands.  She eventually designed a space from the comforts of her home, where she now provides her clients with her passion and expertise. Throughout the years, she certified as a hand and ear reflexologist.  Achieving her ultimate goal of teaching The Certified Professional Reflexology Training Course, she now supports others to dramatically change their path and benefit from the profound healing of reflexology.  Presently she combines plant based essential oils, reflexology, and teaching into to a full- time practice. 
Discovering Block Therapy was the next piece of the puzzle.   Fearing that she may have to give up her dreams due to physical pain, she was introduced to the block by a fellow teacher and friend.  She was guided through the basic classes, and quickly concluded that the block was the pain management therapy she was seeking.  She now visualizes offering clients and other reflexology therapists this brilliant therapy to manage and transform their physical bodies.

Certified Block Therapy Instructor
Certified Personal Trainer - National Academy of Sports Medicine (CPT-NASM)

Leeanne's Bio

Originally from Canada and now living in New York for the past 16 years!
Having spent the last 20+ years in the corporate fashion industry my body and mind have been slowly letting me know that it is time for a change. Block therapy came into my world a few years ago as an initial class my sister took me to. Although I thought it was fantastic, at that time I was “too busy” to take on another practice and would get back to it “later”. After years of traveling, jetlag, hauling heaving bags, working day and night, sitting at a computer for hours, and all the stress that most of us know too well…my time is now.
Always staying active I’ve had my share of exercise practices from Crossfit to Bikram Yoga to a short Triathlon phase. I’ve learned that you have to listen to your body, I’d developed many subtle injuries that manifested into chronic pain. After spending hours and dollars on physical therapy, chiropractic, massage therapy, and acupuncture, I did find some relief (all of these treatments can work well alongside Block Therapy). However, Block Therapy has embodied healing for me in an entirely different way and it’s been incredibly effective. It is not only restorative, it has increased my lung capacity, strengthens muscle I’ve ignored my entire life, taught me correct posture, and given my mind meditation space. Block Therapy has become my daily practice and lifestyle, and I’m excited to teach and share with others how they can also heal and experience the many benefits of this amazing therapy.

Valerie Loridans

Shreveport, LA

Certified Block Therapy Instructor

Valerie's Bio

Valerie is a Registered Nurse, Yoga teacher, and Certified Block therapy instructor. Being in the medical field for over 35 years and frustrated by the lack of options for real healing outside a pill and a band aid, Valerie began searching for answers to chronic pain for herself and her patients. Learning about fascia as an overlooked key to health she tried various modalities like yoga and foam rolling as a means to work with fascial adhesions and pain. When she found Block Therapy the search was over. This practice is all encompassing in its ability to relieve pain, restore postural alignment, and calm the body and mind. She is now studying to be a Block Therapist and understand even more how the fascia affects our posture and health and be of more service in helping others learn and understand their bodies.

It was in these settings that JoAnne focused on the more therapeutic aspects of bodywork. This lead her on a three year mission to find and release her back pain. After purchasing many tools, taking many classes, the answers and many more questions were found in the connective tissue or fascia of the body. Block Therapy and the study of fascia is what released her back pain.
