Marilyn Arsenault
May 10, 2013 Rob Pearce Case Studies

Client: Marilyn Arsenault

Age: 45

Bio: Competitive runner & founder of Mindful Strides.

Reason for becoming a client: To prevent injury and ensure joints and muscles remain in top form; to enhance mobility, efficiency and alignment; to counter the demands of high-performance training and avoid training interruption.

Treatment approach: Whole-body care, including massage and joint mobilization to level pelvis, improve rotation and release sacroiliac joint (SI) stiffness. Special attention to feet and ankles to assist pliability and mobility.

Frequency: Weekly maintenance visits (1-2 per week).

Outcomes: Improved biomechanical range and continued injury-free performance at the elite level.

Client feedback: “Regular sessions with Rob help me to maintain efficient joint movement, muscle balance and suppleness. Even though I’m training hard, I recover quickly, which supports consistency week over week. At 45, I feel stronger and faster than ever.”

Bob Smith

Client: Bob Smith

Age:  61

Bio: Retired commercial fisherman and boat builder/carpenter.

Reason for becoming a client: Past workplace injury and acute pain/incapacitation. Originally diagnosed with L4-L5 herniation and treated with surgery, chiropractic, physiotherapy, ice, and painkillers.

Treatment approach: Focus on cause(s) of original herniation; massage to gauge muscle tension and assist relaxation; correction of asymmetrical elevation and rotation of hip and pelvis causing abnormal tension and weight bearing.

Frequency: Weekly visits (2-3 per week) and house calls at most acute; monthly visits to reinforce gains.

Outcomes: Improved structural alignment, balance, and pain-free mobility. Freedom to return to function and trade-related hobbies.

Client feedback: “After three weeks flat on my back and the threat of surgery and a wheelchair, I turned to Rob for help. Thanks to his “magic hands,” and some committed effort, I now experience only minimal discomfort first thing in the morning. I visit Rob for a tune-up about once a month, and I’m able to work again at the things I love.”

Age: 55

Frequency: Monthly maintenance visits.

Outcomes: Enhanced well being and pelvic stability; reduced lumbar stiffness to enhance training efficiency and recovery; increased resilience to training load.

Thanks to Rob for being so supportive, kind and caring.”

My private practice is situated within the multidisciplinary Guan Clinic of Traditional Chinese Medicine in downtown Victoria where I share space with four talented and complementary practitioners. They’re a caring group, so it’s great to exchange ideas and tap into their expertise on behalf of my clients. Our door is open if you want to say hello or find out more about what we offer.

Dr. Bing Jun Guan MD (China) is a registered Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioner. He developed the Structural Dynamic Therapy approach combining orthopedic theory with hands-on techniques.

Beverly Norman is a certified Alexander Technique teacher. “Alexander Technique works like an oil can to Oz’s Tin Man—it lubricates joints, but acts indirectly by correcting “misuse” of everyday movement patterns. The result is the release of chronic tension and pain held in muscle. The approach restores support of gravity and upright posture.”

Dr. Nora Morcos MD has practiced Classical Homeopathy and SHEN Physio-Emotional Release Therapy for more than 20 years.
