What Clients are Saying About Emmanuel Birstein

33-year-old Female
I want to feel more balanced
I have noticed that I feel calmer and more balanced now that a few days have gone by, although not all the symptoms are gone, I am still getting headaches and not sleeping well. I would say that overall I do feel healthier and more balanced than before and I think that the session was helpful.

I noticed a little bit more spontaneous and confident speech/sentences after seeing Emmanuel. The change is slight but for me noticeable.

Mother of 5-year-old Autistic Boy
Hello and good afternoon Emmanuel,
I took a few days to observe Mason before updating you, since he is unable to communicate I am unsure how he truly feels but from observation there has been a difference in his all around behavior since the session, his "stimming" habits (hand flapping, involuntary screaming,repetitive pacing) all have intensified greatly and he has not been sleeping very much as he seems to have more energy in general. I, on the other hand benefited very much because the pain I've experienced in my abdomen for almost a decade has since subsided and I've also been able to completely overcome my tobacco and sugar cravings almost immediately. I am unsure how to proceed because I did read craniosacral therapy may help the detoxification system of the body, which Mason has medical lab results of positive tests for many heavy metals (the highest including arsenic, antimony, barium, cadmium, and lead) so the intensity of his behavior may be the purging of the metals from his body or I thought if some blockages were elevated maybe he's having a hard time adjusting to the new feelings in his body? What are your thoughts?

Hello Emmanuel,
I just wanted to update you since we last spoke, I have noticed an improvement in Mason's ability to comprehend and he seems more aware of his surroundings. I have spoke with my husband at great length and we would like to focus on healing/regulating Mason's nervous system. We have stopped all of his supplements/additives (for over a week now without any adverse effects) since those did not seem to be helping. We would like to help Mason without any additives and if you feel as though you could help Mason further (without him being on any additives) we would like to set up more visits with you. Please let me know your thoughts when you get a moment, there is no rush especially with the holiday tomorrow.

My Test Results
I hope you are doing well. I just wanted to share some good news with you. Emmanuel had been helping me with some issues with my cervix. I think I had told you that I had abnormal cells that had progressed and my doctors were insisting I have some invasive treatments. Emmanuel thought he could help if given some time. I put the treatment off a few months and worked with Emmanuel. I had follow up biopsies done last week and the results were amazing. Even my doctors were surprised! I have no more dysplasia. I was ecstatic since I have been dealing with this for over a decade. I wanted to share this news with you and also thank you for recommending him to me. 

2016-2017 (Multiple Sessions)

I had to have a follow up biopsy of my cervix and everything went great! My doctor did multiple biopsies and found no evidence of any abnormal cells. Thanks you so much for all of your help. I have been dealing with this for 12 years. To hear her say it is gone is beautiful to me!! I would love to meet with you for some additional breath work. No hurry, I have a very busy month...

I feel unprecedented strength in my inner core. I became self-confident, I realize my talents, I changed my eating habbits. I even lost some extra weight. I feel the exciting strength and energy. My monthly cycle stabilized, the PMS and associated pains are gone. The nagging abdominal pain and tension after surgery on my ovary disappeared. I perceived the world in a quite different way now. With deep gratitude for your help.

  • I have enjoyed the benefits of a 15 year relationship with Emmanuel Birstein. Emmanuel has helped me with various health issues: sinus headache, digestive problems, anxiety issues, alignment and any other ailment that was causing me pain or discomfort. I have found that I typically can go about a year to 18 months before needing another session. After all this time, it is still difficult for me to explain what he does. I consider myself fortunate to have met and been treated by Emmanuel. I highly recommend him for anyone open to alternative methods of medicine. Emmanuel treats the problem not the symptom.

  • I had suffered from depression most of my life.... In my very first appointment [with Emmanuel] my depression was gone.

  • I first wanted to thank you for assisting Emmanuel Birstein when he did Craniosacral work on me at the end of the [Active Isolated Stretching]class ... a little over a month ago. I would like to give you an update on how effective this work was. In this last month I have not had the recurring nightmare I had been having for over three years following a rear end collision. In fact I have had only one panic attack while a passenger in the car. Also the need to react in a protective clamped down reaction has completely left my lower half of my body. I am extremely grateful to all of you and especially Emmanuel and James for the wonderful and effective work they have done.

  • Six months ago when I started cranio sacral treatments with Emmanuel Birstein, I had been suffering the physical effects of a stress disorder, such as insomnia, tinnitus and digestive problems, for over a year after partial shoulder replacement surgery. The physical symptoms were not the only signs of my malaise. They also included poor energy levels, inability to concentrate at work, lack of intuition and creativity. During the course of the treatments, my inner spark came back, the very essence of who I am and how I interact with others. My ability to rest came back. I take pleasure in my work again. I am sleeping better and not waking up bleary and feeling sick during the day. Healing a nervous system disorder takes time and not all the symptoms have disappeared but they are so much reduced that I can function and live. Emmanuel helped me understand that all the physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual capacities are connected and that as my shoulder heals and regains range of motion, so will every other part of me. I'm well on the way.

  • I have Amyotropic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's disease), and I have tried different therapies to stop the progression of my disease with no success. I was referred to Emmanuel over a year ago. Emmanuel has not cured me, but he was the only one who consistently helped me to ease my breathing, to relax, to reduce swelling and to be free of pain. On one occasion Emmanuel even moved my kidney stone saving me from unbearable pain and the imminent surgery.

  • Emmanuel helped to facilitate healing in my body by asking the right questions to bring about pain release. (No one has ever done that before). Emmanuel worked in conjunction with his Craniosacral therapy techniques at the same moment I made the verbal statement and mental decision to release the pain. As a result of his Craniosacral therapy techniques, I felt lighter, freer, more peaceful and my deep SI joint pain was gone.

  • My right shoulder was frozen about 8 yrs ago. Although I regained mobility, my range of motion remained greatly compromised. Using a combination of myofascial and orthopedic techniques Emmanuel resolved my limited range of motion. As a therapist, I fully expected gradual release of my tissue restriction. However, Emmanuel returned my range of motion in one session. I was impressed with Emmanuel’s thorough knowledge and impressive skills. I would not hesitate to refer clients to Emmanuel

  • I am a healthy person in my mid forties. I saw Emmanuel only once just to get relaxed. I did get relaxed, and unexpectedly after that appointment I got back my problem-solving skills as if I was 25 years old again. In addition, for more than a month after the session I could read without glasses. Thank you Emmanuel for making my life brighter!

  • Emmanuel Birstein was able to clear my inner ear of fluid AFTER I had 5 months of unsuccessful treatment by an internist and an ear specialist. I highly recommend him as a skilled professional in his field.

  • Emmanuel, I would like to thank you for my recent treatment. After learning about your work I was a little skeptical. I had no major physical problems but knew my body was not quite right after having 3 children in less than 3 years. I did not want to use a chiropractor and become dependent. I was willing to try Craniosacral therapy with the understanding that I would not need to continually rely on the therapy. The session itself was phenomenal. I was intrigued with how knowledgeable you were with the body and how you have a gift and can feel tension and pain. While working on my ankles you could sense the changes in my hips and I could feel the sensation also. Even if I had not received positive results from the therapy, the massage itself was wonderful. During our discussion I learned that emotions are embedded in the connective tissue and emotional issues are sometimes dealt with during sessions. I mentioned to you my fear of jumping horses. I have been riding for over 20 years and have been trying to overcome this fear for most of that time. Even though I knew why I had the fear, I could not rid myself of the tension and nausea. Let me tell you, fear of jumping is counterproductive to a good ride. After the one treatment, I have noticed an incredible difference in my riding. I spent the last weekend jumping fences I could not imagine jumping prior to the treatment. I was asking my trainer to jump some of the elements. Various people have commented on the change and I can only attribute it to your treatment. Thank you many times over. Gratefully,

  • We have been seeing Emmanuel for over a year with our now 4.5 year old son who has seizures, and developmental delay. We can't express how grateful we are for the amazing milestones Emmanuel has helped Landon with. He has helped with GI issues, sleep issues, low tone, and most recently helping him eat 100% by mouth after almost 3 years of complete g tube feeds. Emmanuel has given hope when we felt hopeless. Landon is really doing amazing! Eating everything and now moving everywhere!

  • After Emmanuel's work our child completely changed. He could sleep peacefully, his headaches stopped torturing him, he became successful in school, became full of life and joy. Our family's life has transformed because our boy stopped suffering. We will be always grateful to Emmanuel. God give him health and longevity.

  • After the treatment with Emmanuel my headaches and neck pain disappeared. The fibroma in my left breast dissolved and the wound on my left leg that for three months bothered me with inflammation was healed. The quality of life has changed: I feel fine emotionally. With love for Emmanuel and life.

  • Patient XXX, 50 years old had a bilateral radical mastectomy with breast implants replacement. At the time of the surgery, the uterus and both ovaries were also excised. The left breast implant did not do well and was removed, and since then the wound on the left side of the chest was constantly oozing, was hyperemic and painful. Due to significant inflammation, the surgery was out of question. This clinical situation was going on for four months and had greatly reduced the quality of life of the patient. Right after a single session with Emmanuel the patient reported a significant decrease in pain in the chest, the inflammatory source encapsulated within three days, and surgeons finally (after four months of torment), were able to operate. The joy of the patient was hard to describe. She noted that all the symptoms went away quietly and smoothly.

  • Thank you very much Emmanuel! It is not to cure me, but his outlook has enabled my mind to rethink my existence in this world, to take a fresh look at ourselves. His hands, brain, I do not know what else do wonders!!! He did not just cure me, but his outlook has enabled my mind to rethink my existence. Once again, thank you very much Emmanuel.

  • I had polyps in my uterus and had the surgery already scheduled. And then I was referred to Emmanuel. After the session the bleeding immediately stopped and I felt an extraordinary relief. Since then I feel 10 years younger (and I'm only 32). Although Emmanuel suggested to wait with the decision about the surgery till my next period, I could not wait;since I was about to leave for a third world country. The surgery was performed as scheduled without any complications, and I feel fine now. I am sure this is due to Emmanuel.

  • I want to thank Emmanuel Birstein!!! I was lucky enough to get him for two sessions, and the results after his work are stunning. The relief came immediately after the first session. I was in a very bad state: swollen face, pus from the eyes, problems with my back and the wrist injury. In two days after the session my face ceased to swell, pus stopped oozing from my eyes and the wrist problems vanished. A week later I recovered almost completely and forgot that I was ever sick.

  • My reaction to everything around became much calmer, and the coughing is gone! I am a very emotional person, I take everything to heart. After strong emotions I literally felt heaviness, pain in the chest and started coughing. After Emmanuel worked with me, I felt an amazing tranquility and my entire body relaxed. The first session was followed by a period of acute cough, that was taken care of by a homeopathic remedy. After the second session I started perceiving everything in a different way. The tranquil state of mind, that descended on me during the second session still stays with me. Constant agitation, emotional instability are gone, my reactions are calmer - and the coughing did not come back!

  • The scars after two abdominal surgeries caused adhesions in the pelvic area. For ten years, I constantly felt the tension all over the body and especially in the abdomen. I had gynecological problems and constant back pain. After two sessions with Emmanuel the tension in the abdomen and pelvis was gone. The left ovary stopped bothering me, the menstrual pain is completely gone, lower back pain is almost gone. Already during the first session with Emmanuel, I felt like everything in my abdomen got set in place. There was a sensation of release. The scar became much softer, and after the second session, it almost disappeared.

  • This person has unique therapeutic abilities. His extensive experience in the treatment of wounds is almost unprecedented. I personally know a man who had a bone fracture while camping. He was able to heal the bone fracture in the field conditions. Emmanuel Birstein healed that fracture in a short session tight there.

  • It changes the quality of life in psycho-emotional terms. After three treatments the headaches and neck pain had gone, fibroids in the left breast had dissolved, the lesion on my leg healed (after three months of continuous inflammation). The quality of life in psycho-emotional terms has changed. With love to Emmanuel and life.
