Success Stories

Dear Dr. Rettner:

After receiving your treatment for Releasing Birth Trauma I have felt more of a profound effect today than yesterday. It’s pretty amazing.

I walk more slowly and feel absolute 0% tension of anything mental or physical.

I even seem to be more outspoken just out and about so far today.

Thank you very much.

Neck & Back Pain

I went to Dr. Rettner for pain in my back and neck that has resurfaced over time. I’ve had chiropractic treatment since I was young, and am a big fan. Now, I find that many chiropractors are at least pretty good and can help – but others go much farther.

Dr. Rettner came highly recommended from multiple sources as being a true healer, and this is certainly true. In addition to the chiropractic work, he utilizes other energetic techniques to foster a deeper level of healing. I found myself feeling better on many levels after working with him, and will continue to keep going back. If you’re seeking deeper transformation, don’t spend any more time looking – try out the good doctor

I went to Dr. Rettner with neck, shoulder and lower back tension as well as severe pain in my big toe joint. Dr. Rettner was very thorough, skilled and caring in his adjustments and treatment. He gave me a holistic view of my symptoms and what the underlying cause is on an emotional, physical and physiological level.

I felt much improvement after my treatment and highly recommend Dr. Rettner.

I recently began work with Dr. Rettner, as a result of residual pain resulting from old injuries, allergies and as a preventative measure in the aging process. I am approaching mid 60’s and want to prolong my health and vitality. We established an initial work plan addressing all of my issues.

I have started the plan and already feel the positive results. Dr. Rettner is a true healer and goes beyond the perfunctory duties of ordinary Chiropractics. I already feel one inch taller, my posture has improved and I have adhered to dietary recommendations that he has given me; specific to my needs .

Work with Dr. Rettner helped to increase my energy, alertness and overall well being.

I came in to see Dr. Rettner with a painful dislocated rib, the result of a bad fall a week previous. He solved this problem in just one session. The session was packed with numerous techniques, many of which I have not experienced before. (Dr Rettner is not my regular chiropractor.)

The result was quite amazing. The pain receded right away and disappeared in two days. What a turnaround-I am very grateful to Raphael.

I would describe Dr Rettner as skilled, healing, supportive, compassionate, and once you get to know him better the surprise of his quick wit and humor is a plus!

My L5-S1 disk is bulged and a painful left knee benefited from his amazing work.  I have been seeing Dr Rettner for over a year now. The adjustments and muscle testing have given me excellent results. I can completely bend my knee pain free! So now that I can do deep knee bends, this is allowing me to finally do yoga which is helping to support my back at a rapid pace. My personal life this past year has been really challenging, the energy work he does has been very healing.

Dr Rettner knows what he is doing and I am so thankful I have found him. I look back and see that I have come a long way with the benefits of his techniques while giving me a lot of support and compassion. His work is spot on. This yelp is long over due.

Thank you Dr. Rettner.

I went to Dr. Rettner because he helped a friend of mine who was in a lot of pain from a spider bite with a lymph massage to hasten the healing. I have a thyroid problem and suffer from multiple flus so I went for the lymph massage for a particularly long lasting flu and the results were amazing; I felt so much better I was able to go for a long walk the next day.

Since I have multiple issues; immune system, adrenal, digestive and thyroid, Dr. Rettner has put together a plan for me to get my energy and well being back. He does a lot of alternative energy work but just as much purely chiropractic work like spinal adjustment (though I’ve seen a lot of chiropractors and have never had quite the level of release I’ve had with Dr. Rettner).

I’m very impressed with his knowledge of the human body. He works very quickly but very deftly and with great confidence. My back and neck feel much looser after my adjustment and I have no doubt he’s increasing my energy level and my overall wellness.

I look forward to every visit.

I came to Dr Rettner after I pulled my back carrying music gear. He had me up and running after a few sessions and has kept me in good shape since. If I have an ailment or tweak something I book up another session and feel the benefits quite soon.

I like how he covers both the physical and energetic bodies. : )

Dr. Rettner is a HEALER! After seeing many medical specialists for over a year to address a multitude of symptoms, including severe pain, inexplicable falls, skin rashes, and memory impairment, I felt discouraged neither cause nor cure were found. In one visit to Dr. Rettner I experienced a miraculous healing on multiple levels of my being and now have a vibrant life once again.

The joy of returning to dance, and losing 25 lbs. effortlessly in less than three months is astounding to me. His gift to the world as a healer is a treasure for those who need healing.

I feel so much better after my session with Dr. Raphael Rettner! He is a very caring man and gave me in-depth, knowledgeable care that addressed my neck pain, low-energy, stress and severe pain in my big toe.

Dr. Rettner is great with client rapport, asks questions and give good background information before moving forward with the treatment. His adjustments were superb!

A week later, I am still feeling much better!

As a colleague who’s been adjusted by many other chiropractors since beginning receiving care in 1976 I have a large basis for comparison. Dr. Rettner is outstanding! His clinical skills, diagnostic and adjusting skills are superb. I have recommended him to my family members without reservation. He sets the bar high.

My neck hasn’t been in such great shape for years!!!   A gifted chiropractor!

I have been seeing Dr. Rettner on and off for many years, since I was 15 years old! I was struggling with a lot of depression and emotional issues, struggling in school, struggling with relationships, struggling with life in general. Dr. Rettner is a holistic practitioner so when he began to work on me, everything turned around, not just one or two things. Now really, I’ve been to a lot of unskilled chiropractors who would adjust you only to find you out of alignment in the same places time and time again, but Dr. Rettner knows what he’s doing.

I feel better with every adjustment, and I feel like a new person when I walk out of the office. I’ve been to the works for my depression: psychologists, psychiatrists, homeopathic doctors, nutritionists, gurus, self-help books – you name it. The difference is that Dr. Rettner is intuitive. He was able to get to the heart of the matter. He does muscle testing for allergies and he does flower essences for emotional imbalances. He really worked a lot on all of my stress that was causing my neck and back to hurt.

Also, he’s got a lot of tools up his sleeve. Like I said before, when I saw all of those other practitioners, they only practiced one or two modalities. But Dr. Rettner has such an interest in health that he is always teaching me new things. Oh yeah, he also worked on me when I was in a car accident and he saved me from getting old and prematurely crippled, so in reality I owe him a lot more than I could ever say on these pages.

I highly recommend seeing him if you are someone who wants to experience a high level of health.

Raphael Rettner, D.C. gives the best neck adjustments on the planet! My neck often goes out due to low blood sugar, and when he’s done with me, I feel like the lights are back on in my head and I can function again. I can’t recommend him enough.

He’s also great with stubborn weight loss problems, although I have never had to see him for this reason. Plus he’s guaranteed to make you laugh as well as get your bones in shape.

I have just returned from Dr. Raphael’s Rettner’s office, and my back pain, which had me immobilized, is gone! Not to mention the thorough and exacting treatment my whole body/mind/spirit received…. a powerful alignment of skill, care, and healing. Humor included at no extra charge.

Dr. Rettner is a true healer. A visit to his office is like going to an appointment with a guardian Angel. He has a holistic approach and method and this is why I say that. I have had lower back pain (sacrum), upper neck pain, vertebrae in the middle of my back twisted, and had several blocked chakras from a bad tendency to not deal with stressful events correctly and/or appropriately, basically my whole life. These are completely associated with most if not all physical pain and suffering.

He has totally transformed my back and stabilized my spine, and we are doing a lot of energy work and un- blocking and charging chakras. I haven’t felt this limber and flexible since I was probably 15 years old, and every time I walk out of there I feel like I’m gliding and I can’t stop smiling…

I feel absolutely great, and feel like I am seeing familiar things through a new set of eyes with a new perception. All anxieties and temper flares have just melted away…

I highly recommend him to anyone and everyone!

My name is Paul Thompson. I sing in a choir and also do solo performances around the Bay Area. I felt like my voice desired to reach a higher level but something was blocking its progression.

Prior to seeing Dr. Rettner, I could reach an A or A flat. Dr. Rettner cleared out the emotional armor surrounding my vocal chords, and I can now reach a high “B” note with relative ease. A high “B” is the next level, which is extremely good and high for a male voice. My voice coach and others who’ve heard me sing recently think I should move into operatic singing.

I’m very pleased with the Chakra Armor Release of Emotions technique that Dr. Rettner employs in his chiropractic practice.

Weight Loss

I got on the scale after 2 treatments and I had lost 6 pounds. Dr. Rettner’s combination of common sense and science works amazingly well and you won’t feel deprived!

Ashley

I tried to lose weight before seeing Dr Rettner but couldn’t. I haven’t been this skinny in fifteen years. Since I discontinued using sugar in my diet I have lost so much weight that I’ve gone down 3 notches in my belt and no longer suffer from heartburn.

Phil

His wife Julie said “I have never seen him this thin since we’ve been married. He’s proud because his friends have noticed how much weight he’s lost.”

Julie also said “Since eliminating sugar, rice, corn and wheat from my diet, the extra mini-pregnancy has disappeared. I can now wear clothes that made me feel unattractive-before the changes in my diet.”

Although I came to you with a weight problem, you managed to help me with so much more. I learned about my food allergies and a whole array of foods which I like and are beneficial to me. I’ve lost over thirty pounds and I’m still easily losing two pounds per week. I feel better than I have in years.

Thank you for all you do.

I’d like to thank you for providing your very effective eight week plan. I really appreciate your very positive and knowledgeable approach in helping improve my total health.

I’m enclosing my recent blood chemistry tests from my family doctor.   In eight short weeks my total cholesterol has dropped 19% from 201 to 163, my triglycerides dropped 26% from 251 to 185 and my weight dropped twelve pounds.

Thank you

On top of being incredible at fixing whatever seems to ail me at the moment, and aligning my body back to perfection, I originally went to Dr. Rettner to lose weight. I’d gone to one of his workshops and thought he might be able to help, where everything else seemed to fail. He’s skilled at finding out what the original problem is for the weight GAIN.

He runs many tests for the different systems and parts of the body, including thyroid, the adrenals, the kidney and liver function, etc. and we literally ruled out things through tests until we found the winning combination for me of diet modification and proper supplements to improve my depleted adrenal system.

I finally reached my weight goal, and I’m overjoyed!

Charylu

I went to see Dr. Rettner because i wanted to lose weight. The process we went through over a period of eight weeks ultimately was more important as a way of taking responsibility for my health, and making changes in my diet and lifestyle that were important and hopefully will assist in longer range health goals.

And eventually, I even lost some weight! And what a lovely person he is.

I’ve had good experiences with Dr. Rettner in a couple of areas. He has worked on some neck and back problems that were getting worse, now they are getting better. Who could ask for anything more?

Now I’m working with him on weight reduction. I really appreciate the detailed approach he uses that goes into much more subtle things than the usual “eat less” plans.
