Lara is a deeply caring person who will not quit until she has found just what works for you. Thanks to her tremendous knowledge of various techniques, I have found relief with injuries and physical limitations that keep me from doing the things I love to do. After wasting tons of time and money going to doctor after doctor without receiving much relief, I found Lara, who always gets to the root of the issue and fixes things quickly
A few years before the end of my major-league baseball career, I was diagnosed with a ruptured disk. Unbearable pain finalized the need for an operation. The surgery was a success, but despite strenuous workouts, I never fully recovered. Pain was a constant factor and I had flexibility limitations that kept me from being able to bend at the waist. A decade of frustration was erased after just two sessions with Lara Riggio. Her application of Muscle Activation Technique produced incredible results. The day after my first session, I woke up without pain for the first time in over twenty years.
I had been suffering daily with symptoms of avoidance, intrusive thoughts, anxiety, depression when Lara was recommended to me. I had many reservations about doing a non-medical therapy. Would she be equipped and qualified to handle the heaviness of my situation? All of my fears disappeared once we started our work together. Lara’s calm, confident, supremely competent explanations and guidance, coupled with unmatched compassion, allowed me to walk away with a number of effective coping skills that helped calm me down during panic attacks and other stressful situations. I left feeling more equipped and more confident about my ability to control myself in situations that I would otherwise avoid.
Lara has an amazing gift and I am so grateful that I was put directly in her path on my way to a fully fulfilled life. I know she is critical to my success. Not only do I see and feel a difference in my life since going to Lara, but friends, family and co-workers can all see a noticeable difference. I call Lara my energy healer… because that is what she does. She helps me stay balanced and focused on my ultimate outcome.
As my business was rapidly growing, I found myself working all the time, feeling overwhelmed and drained. Lara helped me take my life back by getting me in touch with what I wanted in my life and my business. Lara helps me stay grounded, balanced and connected to my heart's desires.
While working in NYC on a launch, I was incapacitated by intense lower back pain. The pain was so intense I thought I was going to have to cut my trip short to return to Spain for medical attention, fearing I needed surgery. I was amazed when I saw Lara; in less than 40 minutes I could bend and move normally again without any pain. I am so grateful - I have no idea how she did this so quickly when I felt ready for the hospital!
While playing ball in high school, I fractured one of my lumbar vertebrae. My low back was a constant source of frustration. Over the last ten years, my situation worsened. Pain prohibited me from running and from playing basketball or golf. Sitting in a car for more than an hour also triggered my symptoms. I had been seeing a chiropractor for three years and had received minimal relief. After four MAT sessions with Lara, I started playing hoops again, driving to and from the Hamptons weekly, golfing frequently, and began to run long distances again!
Lara has helped me in many ways. She’s my go-to person when I need to shift emotionally or energetically. After feeling exhausted due to adrenal fatigue, after one session with Lara, combined with the exercises she suggested, I felt significantly better in just one week. Her exercises helped me reduce chronic knee pain from a level 7 to 0. She does truly amazing work and is the one to go to when you don’t know who to go to! For energy and emotionally healing she’s my first choice.
A week before I was supposed to run the New York City Marathon, my right knee hurt constantly and made a clicking noise when I bent it. After a long run, my entire right leg would go numb and my right hip would start hurting. After waking up each morning, it would take four or five hours before I could walk normally. Lara saw me limping through the gym on a Monday. When I told her that I was going to run the marathon that Sunday, she insisted on helping me. She worked with me for about an hour and a half. When she was finished, my knee pain and clicking were gone, and the numbness had disappeared. I ran the marathon completely pain-free.
I went to see Lara during a very challenging time in my life and our work together was a game changer for me. In the last decade, I have referred many of my psychotherapy clients to Lara, with amazing results. I have never known a more intuitive healer who can quickly and accurately get to the core issue and offer real solutions. Do yourself a favor and work with Lara. You will thank me!
When I found Lara, I was not walking, no longer working, and my physical and emotional state was in bad shape. Lara helped me stay positive while we rebuilt my body. With a clear mind, an open heart, and an energized body, I found my way back to the stage in Hair on the West End in London. There is no one like her who does what she does, and I am eternally grateful for her guidance!
I thought I didn’t have a choice but to have surgery, since I was no longer willing to live in pain. The morning of my second opinion I went to see Lara; she was able to quickly assess the muscular compensations and the emotional stress driving my pain. Just three sessions later, I was pain free, had my flexibility back, and had a new outlook and life direction as well!
I've worked with many body workers and energy healers in my life, but WOW! I knew Lara, but I didn't know all she could do, until she pulled me and my body out of a debilitating migraine headache at a retreat where we were both teaching. Amazed, I went for another session, and she blew me away again by helping me uncover a deep desire and clear the fear that had been holding me back from realizing it. She's the real deal. So glad to know someone like her exists, a real body whisperer.
Lara has helped me transform my relationship to stress. Situations which would have gotten to me in the past no longer phase me. Learning how to calm myself with her magical exercises and transform unproductive narratives, she has helped me become a happier person and business owner all around.
Lara taught me how to speed up the healing process during my cardiovascular rehab. She reduced the intensity of my body cramps and her techniques helped me sleep through the night when I was dealing with insomnia for weeks after the surgeries. Lara helped me reflect on the years of over-eating and taught me how to change the way I think about food and physical fitness. Lara’s energy activation therapy lessons taught me how to keep myself energized so I could return to work sooner and regain my life. With her patience, amazing skill, and talent, Lara has taught me how to live a happier, healthier life.
I've worked in the alpha male banking world for 15 years, and when I started out, I did my best to copy the men and become one of the boys. When I was miserable and saw that wasn't working out, I was lucky enough to find Lara and see that copying their linear approach didn't work for me. Lara helped me to get in touch with and trust both my inner voice and feminine intuition. Changing my approach and following my instincts helped me connect dots, be more creative, and bring people together to create win-win solutions that ultimately got me promoted from Vice President to Director. I now see my feminine sensibilities are valued; they are an asset versus an impediment.
Many of my clients have been surprised when they meet me for a first session, especially if they were referred by a friend who told them they had to see this amazing “Energy Healer.” Funny but true – one client said they were relieved to see I was wearing Lululemon and not a flowing moo moo our first meeting!
I prefer calling myself an Energy Effect Coach. Because I can help you be at your best energy effect. During one of my sessions, we can coach your energy to move to different places in your body (like from tight muscles to weak muscles) to fuel different emotional reactions to stress, and to motivate different actions in your life. The goal is to get your body’s energy, your intentions and your actions into alignment and supporting the same desired effect.
Studying the same techniques that helped me overcome sciatica, chronic fatigue and emotional limitations, over the last 15 years, I have become an expert in Eastern Healing and Western Exercise Science. You can benefit from the fusion of both the Eastern and Western Techniques I have studied with exercises that can help balance your body, energy and mindset. And, I take pride in having a no BS, results-oriented approach to my work. I was led to study these modalities because they worked.
From overworked entrepreneurs and CEOs to veterans struggling to re-acclimate to civilian life, it’s rewarding to help clients overcome their limitations and be at their best energy effect. You can get more done with less energy when your body, energy and mindset are working together verses against one another.
My Central Park Energy Center is located at Columbus Circle. And my work has been featured in The Daily News, Huffington Post, Mind Body Green, Elle as well as on Fox News, NY1 and the CW11’s Morning Show.
I hold advanced certifications from American Council on Exercise, National Academy of Sports Medicine, Muscle Activation Techniques, and Eden Energy Medicine, and I have studied MAT Pilates, Psych-K, Emotional Freedom Technique, and The Egoscue Method.
It would be my pleasure to help you feel your best and be at your best energy effect!
