Lori's understanding of fitness, nutrition and overall health makes sense and stands the test of time. Sustainable lifestyle changes have made an enormous difference in my life. I have the physical strength and endurance to achieve my goals thanks to Lori's support and patience. She taught me to quiet my thoughts and to focus on balance, rather than simply the finish line. I am so grateful to her and hopeful that she will have the opportunity to change many other lives as well.

The best review you can give anybody is to recommend them to your friends. I have with total conviction and those friends recommend Lori to their friends. (I gave my wife a 3 month package for her birthday and she was like "what're you trying to tell me?" And now she feels better than she has in years.) I'm 58, with typical middle-age issues. I had been exercising moderately since 1989. I decided to make a change in my routine and have been working on excercise, diet and stress with Lori for about 18 months. I was attracted to her program because she is a licensed Physical Therapist and I assumed that she would know how to work with somebody my age. I've had an outstanding progression including strength, flexibility, understanding the relationship between my diet and how I feel, and learning techniques to deal with stress. Replenishing Soul has been a great experience for me and my wife.
When my wife broke her knee cap she needed extensive physical therapy. Lori did any excellent job in helping her rehabilitate her knee and went from 35 degrees range of motion to over 120 degrees in just a few months. She's a miracle worker...and so's my wife for working so hard.
I initially came in to see Lori for hormone testing because I was having mood swings, acne, I was emotional, feeling bloated, etc. Lori asked me to fill out a very thorough questionnaire to get a better understanding of what I was experiencing. After completing the questionnaire Lori helped me find ways to alter my current lifestyle to support my the needs of my body, physically and mentally.Lori, You're amazing. You have no idea how great I felt when I left your office knowing that I am already on my path to feeling better. :) Thank you so much. I look forward to making these changes and feeling GREAT! Thank you for all of your kind words and support. I don't know what I would have done had I never met you. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
I have been working out with Lori for the past two years. I can't say enough about her! She is filled with positive energy and knowledge and her main goal is to pass that energy and knowledge along to others so they can use it to improve their physical and emotional health. I can say that in the time I have been working with Lori, I have lost 20lbs, gained enormous strength, started eating in a more aware way and had a huge energy boost. She has helped me really see and define the connection between mind and body and on a daily basis I see benefits of the work we have done together.
I am SO GLAD that I decided to go and see Lori about nutrition and lifestyle counselling. My health has improved TENFOLD! I am off all of my medications, I sleep through the night, my skin looks AWESOME, and I am sorting my way through my many health issues that I have been masking for years of Western medicine and the many medications that doctors put me on. I wish more people would go this route for cronic diseases. Lori has totally opened my eyes. She is incredibly knowledgable and caring and I, at last, feel as if someone is treating the underlying problems that have been destroying my health for years instead of masking them with meds. Thanks, Lori!
Lori, I want to thank you for helping me to understand stress. You did so much for me in that and it has helped me in many areas of my life. I give you that credit for helping me understand the mind-body connection (tight muscles, etc.)
I went to see Lori about nutrition but she gave me more. She helped me eliminate some negative beliefs that prevented me from moving forward with my life goals. She was friendly, helpful, supportive and encouraging in our 1:1 sessions as well as through emails. She's given me invaluable tools so I can continue to have more positive changes in my life. It's been a great experience!
When I heard about the Wellness 101 class, I was skeptical. After all, I know alot about nutrition and health, and I'm against dieting, so what could this hold for me? I was pleasantly surprised at the depth of information and knowledge that both Dorothy and Lori displayed. Things I had never even considered. Their information was soundly grounded in science, even though it dealt with some alternative practices. Also, there were many "hands-on" exercises that helped bring the information home for me. The workshop gave me a whole toolkit of useful ways to improve my health and live better.
Dorothy is great! She really took the time to listen to me and worked with me to determine what would be the best for my body and lifestyle. After following the program for about 6 weeks, I could feel and see the changes in my body and had a better understanding of it. I had more energy, slept better and had an overall improved sense of wellness and balance. Who knew that just a few simple changes could make such a big difference. I'm so glad I've made this a part of my life, and I'm so grateful for Dorothy's supportive personality and genuine desire to promote wellness.
