My name is Luisa Guembes Buchanan. I am from Lima, Perú.

I am Concert Pianist and Musicologist with many years of experience as a concert and recording artist, lecturer, and teacher.

Afflicted by Poliomyelitis at the age of one, I spent a great deal of time compensating and managing my disability.

Severe back pain became more frequent as I aged therefore I was unable to spend as much time as I wished in my profession and the quality of my life was seriously diminished.

After a stay at Canyon Ranch, where I received daily Physical therapy, it was suggested that I get in touch with Igor Burdenko.

Having tried a host of therapies I was a bit skeptical at first. Dr. Burdenko was very welcoming, he simply examined and asked some questions and then proceeded to tell me what he could do for my problem but that I needed to follow through with his method for a couple of weeks at least to see if this was for me.

The improvement was almost immediate. I have so much more stability, freedom of movement, and freedom from pain. Of course I occasionally have pain but it is not what it was and I am now enjoying the freedom to devote as much time as I wish in whatever project I am involved in.

The psychological effects of this newfound freedom are so immense that they are in my opinion a big part of what makes the Burdenko Method so very unique.

I will always be grateful for knowing Dr. Burdenko. His commitment to his patients is absolute. This is another aspect of the therapy that I was unable to find elsewhere.

I would recommend this Method without any hesitation.
