During last season Ruth Chiles has been for me a sensational and truly perceptive Coach. She demonstrated an uncommon ability to give just the advice or to plant the thought that I needed in each moment to enable me to overcome the obstacles that I had and see them from a different perspective.

The journey that I did with her has made me feel that I can really reach my potential, not only in sport, but also in my life. She has helped me to consolidate myself and to believe in the possibilities that I have before me.Joel Almeida, currently playing in B.C. Mia Academy Titebi, Georgia

Improve the accuracy of his 2 pointers

Improve his constancy, concentration and motivation in the games

“In the last season in CB Fundación Granada, I had the opportunity to work with Ruth to improve my on court basketball performance and to improve my relationship with the team.

My main problem was my concentration and my constancy on and off the court. Through my work with Ruth I have improved my concentration and I haven´t had a single bad game or training practice from the day that I began to work with her and up to the last game of the season.

Actually I continue to use the techniques that she showed me to continue to improve my concentration and they are making me much more constant in my performance.

In my actual team in Switzerland I don´t have any problems with my concentration nor with my constancy. She has converted me into a true professional and I take each game and each training with the maximum seriousness.” Tyran de Lattibeaudiere, currently playing in Union Tours Basket Métropole, France.

Performance blocks: Resolve his Focal Hand Dystonia

 Musical instrument: Bass Guitar

Time suffered before beginning the treatment with Ruth: 1 year

"Working with Ruth is very fascinating. She explains from beginning to end, as much in the sessions as in the moment of leaving us exercises to do during the week, everything in a way that is really easy to understand. Some things have been difficult for me in the sessions, but she explained it to me in a way that I could understand. I quickly assimilated what she wanted me to do.

What is special about Ruth for me is that as she also suffered from this illness, she understands very well what one goes through in the moment that they have dystonia. She explains it in a way that one can understand and she also puts herself in our shoes as patients. She explains everything in a way that is easy to understand what we have to do in the treatment.

The results that Ruth said I would have, I have received. Some of them more rapidly than I expected, as I before taking this treatment with Ruth I had taken some other treatments in which I advanced very little. With Ruth, in the fifth session many of the spasms that I had in my hand disappeared and the contractions that occurred in my hand relaxed. This was something that personally helped me; it motivated me to continue with the treatment.

What I have understood about this illness and its treatment in my body is that now I know when I am stressed and when I have stress in certain parts of my body. The treatment has helped me to resolve this stress and the tightening of my body and it has helped me to resolve it much more easily.

Without doubt I would recommend Ruth to all fellow musicians or to the people that suffer from this illness. Don´t doubt it, in truth they should take this treatment. I was also a bit sceptical before undertaking it, but now that I am living it, logically I would openly recommend it. Don´t doubt it."

“The work with Ruth is very straight forward. The truth is that she adapts greatly to all the needs that I have. All of the sessions that we do each week last about one to one and a half hours and in them we can work in a very specific way everything that we want to work on. It is very comfortable working with her.

The way that we work is using Brainspotting and other diverse methods that she uses with me. Above all they help you to really connect to the sensations that your body has in each moment and to relive certain moments that have generated fear or situations that can affect the control of your mind and of your mind over your body. From there correcting all of these sensations to be able to find yourself well within yourself and above all having an inner balance, which I hadn´t felt for a long time and thanks to her I have been able to achieve.

As well as finding myself really balanced; in what is the union between the body and the mind she give you the power to control what your mind wants and that the body executes it.

Of course I would recommend working with her. I think that it is something that we don´t give the importance that it has and it is really necessary.” Iván Martínez, currently playing in Zornotza ST.
