"I have been dealing with COVID and COVID related Pneumonia for the last 12 days, suffering from fever, chills, body aches, cough, chest congestion and shortness of breath. I started working with Harvey five days ago when I had reached my low point. Harvey has helped me tremendously with breathing and body movement exercises and with his caring and compassion. He has helped me to open up my chest, to breath deeply, to gain more energy and to regain confidence that I am on the road to beating this thing. Thank you Harvey, you are amazing!"
“As a practicing physician (internal medicine) I have been very impressed with the care, expertise, and effectiveness demonstrated by Mr. Shields with the patients I have referred to him for evaluation and development of treatment programs for various musculoskeletal problems.
I have been equally impressed by Mr. Shields’ capacity to grasp complex pathophysiologic processes and apply that understanding functionally toward practical solutions to the problem. Having extensive experience supervising and evaluating Doctoral and Post-Doctoral candidates while at Harvard and M.I.T., I feel that I can unreservedly endorse Mr. Shields in his efforts. Further, I strongly feel that Mr. Shields would be an invaluable addition to any program.”
"I am a 68 year old young lady from Tennessee that had an opportunity made possible thru a close family member to work with Harvey. I had been diagnosed with Covid-19 and was having some respiratory problems and anxiety that was brought on from the fear of the unknown. Even though I am a retired nurse, when it is you and you already have some lung issues, the possibilities of a bad outcome is very frightening. Harvey has been a blessing. He has helped me with breathing techniques and given me some great advice on diet, exercise and supplements. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to work with him and hope that others can receive the same support and guidance to assist them to better health. He has also worked with my husband when he tested positive and that has been very positive. God is working thru him and I am amazed by his insight, his belief in God, and his willingness to help others.
“My family believed and Harvey believed, and that was about it. Other people might say it now, but they didn’t know. Harvey knew. And if he didn’t know, he sure made me feel like he knew. He works miracles. Everybody has their own way of doing things. I guess I feel like God sent Harvey to me.”
One of sports greatest comeback stories. After avascular necrosis ravaged Garrison's left ankle post surgery, most thought his career was over.
“I’ve worked with different trainers over the years, and the approach that Harvey takes is very unique and is the one that has worked the best for me. Harvey is passionate about what he does…he always adds new things to my workouts to keep every part of my body strong and pain-free.”
"I began working with Harvey on day 6 of having Covid-19. Harvey helped me open up my chest, balance my energy and get hydrated. My oxygen levels went back to normal, I could breathe easily again and all of my symptoms went away. I believe that had Harvey not helped me heal from Covid-19, I would have ended up in the hospital with Covid pneumonia.
“Through years of playing baseball and numerous injuries and surgeries, Harvey is the only one that has helped me to be able to walk without pain, feel confident that I can go further and push me to improve. He is constantly adapting my workouts to produce results and to strengthen every part of my body.”
"This virus has definitely taken a toll on my lungs. As someone who works out multiple times a week, has a relatively healthy lifestyle, with a background in sports medicine & fitness, the techniques that Harvey has shown me over the past few days is nothing I have ever experienced before. It's been a game changer. My lungs definitely feel more open and I actually feel like Im getting more oxygen now than before COVID. I highly recommend Harvey for those suffering from COVID and anyone who wants to improve their overall health."
“I can unequivocally endorse Harvey Shields as one of the best in the area of stretching/flexibility and rehabilitation of injuries.”
“Your fitness and injury prevention program has taught Costco employees how to properly move their bodies to prevent injuries while on the job, how to get strong and be more flexible to prevent pain and injuries, and how to stay healthy with diet and exercise tips and suggestions. The program you created and your work with 52 warehouses and over 13,000 employees has been a huge asset for Bay Area Region Costco’s.”
"As soon as Harvey learned that my mom and I had Covid-19, he called and began helping us. He guided us through exercises using energy to movement, and instantly we both started feeling better. He showed us how to deep breathe while doing his exercises, using our own strength. After a few days of working with Harvey our symptoms were gone and we felt so much better. I continue to work with Harvey to keep my immune system strong."
“I first met Harvey when he stopped me and told me I was using my cane incorrectly. He showed me how to correct this and it instantly felt much better. The exercises that Harvey showed me really helped my legs, my arms and my neck to feel much better. I continue to work with Harvey to strengthen and improve my body and keep myself in good health. And I happen to be 94 years young.”
