Pain is not a natural part of aging. We have become so detached from our bodies and so stuck in limiting and inaccurate beliefs that we just assume that as we age we will have to deal with pain. In fact, studies show that chronic pain disorders and musculoskeletal pain decrease with age, https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2017/10/25/back-pain-repressed-emotions.aspx

 

You need body awareness to tap into you own natural healing abilities. Current research suggests that do to the complex nature of pain to be effective pain needs to be addressed from a mind-body approach. I show how to use mindful natural movement to restore your mobility, stability and strength. You’ll be free from the pain that has sapped so much of your energy and able to return to a healthy, active lifestyle, free to participate in life again.

The importance of physical play:

    Play helps us understand and experience our bodies and the world around us.

SUCCESS STORIES

“I decided to seek the guidance of a personal trainer a couple years ago, accepting that I was likely not going to make great advancements in my physical health, strength and endurance without help. As I’ve grown older and more cautious of injury, I’ve tried working with different trainers. I found their programs to seem canned and not tailored to my safety, goals or needs. I observed Jeff working with other clients before I decided to see how his approach with me would be.  Jeff has not only proven to be a tremendous catalyst for me to progress towards my physical goals, but has helped me realize my potential to have even greater well balanced physical strength and health. He’s remarkably patient and never fails to be invested in, or be prepared for our sessions. I always feel like he’s training me, not just any one.  The quality of his training is apparent and obviously takes far more of his time than just the direct contact with me.  Money, time and energy well spent! When I first started working with Jeff, I planned for it to be short term. Now I hope it’ll be for the long term, knowing and feeling better!”

I am 77 years old. I have been attending exercise classes on and off for most of my adult life so I am familiar with many different types of exercise training.  In the last year or so I felt like I wasn’t improving my physical well-being. In fact, I often left class feeling sore and tired. A woman I knew from previous classes, but who no longer attended, recommended Jeff. She said that he had really helped her in ways that regular exercise did not so I decided to try something new. 

 

I made an appointment to meet with him to discuss possibilities. He asked all the right questions needed to plan a program for me. His calm manner revealed a person with insight and empathy. I had been reluctant in the past to have a personal trainer because I didn’t want a drill sergeant. 

 

Working with Jeff has been pleasant and productive. Each visit he always has a new program to build on the previous one. He also sends videos to help you work out at home between visits to the gym. 

 

Working with Jeff has been beneficial both physically and mentally. If your body feels good your mental state will follow. If I could bottle how I feel after a session with Jeff I would make millions.

For 19 years I have had chronic pain on my left side due to an auto accident. Some of this is pain that goes from my neck to shoulder blade and down my arm to my fingers. With help from physical therapists, massage therapists, Pilates, acupuncture, and many more modalities, it has improved through the years, but not enough to allow me to write (I am left-handed) or do similar things with my hand without regretting it. After working with Jeff, the pain to my fingers has improved significantly. I was able to hand write a 2-page letter without pain and the pain is not chronic now. 

 
 

A couple years ago I started a membership at a local gym. I had an appointment with a personal trainer. He never showed due to being stuck in traffic. Jeff said he would give me my initial training. He asked what I wanted to get out of exercising at the gym. I stated I wanted to get in shape but without increasing the pain I already had. He said he was the person to do that. I was seeing improvement without an increase in pain for a few months. Then I was diagnosed with cancer and was not able to get back to the gym for almost a year. The cancer caused new problems to deal with along with the old pains. Progress has been slow post-cancer, but one miracle that has happened is my pain to my hand has subsided sufficiently so as to write with control and without pain. I needed to handwrite a 2-page letter, which I was regretting, but did it anyway. Afterward I realized the pain didn’t come back.  

 
 

The “standard” improvements have been good too. Exercises I wasn’t able to do at all, I am able to do with the guidance of Jeff. An example of this is squats. Jeff describes how to improve my movements to get better results. Simple things such as arm placement or head position makes all the difference. 

  

Jeff is very professional and patient. He is also knowledgeable in how the body works. Patience is something I really appreciate. My body doesn’t always do what my mind tells it. When that happens, he will suggest a motion that will help get the body to respond the way it should. That of course combines all three qualities I mentioned previously. 

  

Jeff has been a miracle worker for me. From relieving some of my chronic pain to getting my body in shape, I look forward to each session. The progress is slow, but steady. I am sorry that I didn’t have him helping me 19 years ago. I am thankful to have found Jeff to get me on the road to better health.

I have always struggled with spending money on myself. I guess I just take pride in being thrifty. So, when I was finally eligible for Silver Sneakers, I joined the Zone. During my intake, I shared that I suffer from pain in my right hip due to bursitis. The Zone employee excitedly told me, "We have a guy who could help." I was initially reluctant, but I signed up for sessions with Movement Coach, Jeff Columbia. He worked with me twice a week to teach me gentle movements that have helped decrease my pain, increase my range of motion, and strengthen my muscles to move my body the it was designed to move. After three months when it was time to recommit, I did not hesitate. Working with Jeff has been the smartest money I have ever spent. With tears in my eyes and incredible healing in my body, I thanked Jeff and the gentleman who told me, "We have a guy who could help."
