I’ve been going to Edilma Avendano for massage for many years. She is wonderful! She does the Rolfing technique of slow, deliberate movements on my muscles that gives me the maximum results for my body. I carry a lot of tension in my neck, shoulders, and mid back from a fall I suffered 30 years ago. I was in much pain for years and had tried many kinds of healing techniques such as wearing a neck brace, physical therapy, chiropractic, holistic chiropractic and acupuncture. After getting no results from any of these, I tried massage therapy.

I’ve found Edilma’s massages to be the most beneficial. Her excellent technique helps me release my muscles by letting go not only physically, but also mentally and emotionally.

Edilma has taught me that everything is connected—your body, mind, spirit, and emotions—and how important it is to take care of yourself in all of those areas. I highly recommend Edilma Avendano at Matiz Wellness Center for the best in healing massage. She and her family will take very good care of you!

In September 2016, I began having numbness in my feet and hands and walking issues. I’ve gone to many practitioners, healers, alternate healing modalities ,doctors, and a functional neurologist (X-Rays, etc.), Feldenkrais, Acupuncture, N.I.S., physical therapy, Orthogonial Atlas adjustments, Infra-Red Laser therapies, etc.

I am 67 and growing up my spine had a long scoliosis curve affecting many areas of my body. I’ve also been in several serious car accidents.

Most of the practitioners helped me in some way, however, the improvements didn’t stick or some therapies aggravated the symptoms. I began working with a Christian Science practitioner who help me correct my thought, and stay in alignment with Divine Oneness. Then, I was referred to Edilma. She is known as the Healer’s Healer. I was a healer definitely in need of help.

Of everyone I saw, all the intuitive guidance, etc. no one mentioned Gridwork to me.
I was using a cane, a waist support brace, and using a wheel chair at airports and going to stores when I first met Edilma and had a friend drive me for my first visit.

From my first session with Edilma, I began walking straighter and with a longer stride. After my second session, I became more balanced with walking and experienced easier mobility. My third session was a distant healing. The physical discomfort has lessened and some of the numbness in my hands and feet has lessened. The seeming impossible is happening for me as I know I am experiencing physical changes in my structure. I am healing, and I look forward to 100% healing!
