"In December of 1996, my hands closed into fists as result of an injury called dystonia. Dystonia is considered by the medical profession to have no cure. At the time of the injury I was in my second year of college and practicing five to eight hours a day despite a lot of pain.

"She really understood everything so quickly, and was able to even anticipate some of the pains and symptoms I hadn't told her about. I went from being afraid that I'd need surgery to feeling that I had an intelligent, understanding and patient teacher who could work with me."
"I had been experiencing pain in my hands, wrists, and forearms that was diagnosed by a specialist as tendonitis. Though the pain had started as a minor annoyance, it quickly escalated to the point where I could no longer do my work, which involves many hours each day at a computer and considerable amounts of data entry.

"I first studied with Edna [Edna Golandsky, Healthy Typing Inc. Founder] a little over 20 years ago. The lessons were then, as now, revelations, both technically and musically.

"I developed burning and tingling sensations in my right hand shortly after beginning a new position that required me to type for several hours a day.
