“In 2009, a staph infection from a cortisone shot landed me in the hospital for over 100 days. During this hospital stay, my leg muscles atrophied, and after my release, walking was very difficult. Through a variety of excellent practitioners in New York and Florida, I actually got back 70% of my pre-hospital mobility.
I had worked with Ellen Comerford, the Founder of Core De Vie, in Boston from 2003 to 2008. Fortunately, I found her again this summer in Nantucket.
My goal was to move from walking modest distances with difficulty to playing 18 holes of golf pain free…walking 18 holes. Working 3 to 4 times a week over a 10-week period, Ellen got me there through a combination of Gyrotonic and Yamuna Body work.”
While I won’t beat Tiger Woods anytime soon, I have had a great summer of golf, walking comfortably the month of August.

“Core De Vie’s regenerating cream is AMAZING!!!! I drive miles for it!!!”
“I have been working with Ellen for several months to help a creaky/arthritic hip, and to prevent a total hip replacement. Utilizing Body Logic, core strengthening, and body alignment I have not only eliminated the need for any pain relief, but my PT has dismissed me from her practice as I have regained a normal range of motion. If someone is looking for a holistic approach to healing the body, working with Ellen is the way to go! She has years, and years of experience in the field with a wealth of knowledge that bridges several modalities. I can not believe the results, and am so glad that I found Ellen!”
