“It was about 5 months into vertigo when I met Kim. Although, there was a willingness to be free of vertigo before meeting her, there was an insufficient knowledge or guidance from my doctors to cure the symptoms. Their advice included removing a waxy build-up in my right ear, which also happened to be the… Read more “Suzen L”

Deb S.

“Before Dr. Bell treated me for vertigo, I had every possible examination (including a CT scan) to detect the exact type of vertigo I was suffering from and to rule out other issues.  My vision, hearing and vertigo exams revealed two types of vertigo: Benign Positional Vertigo and a vestibular weakness. My doctors had some… Read more “Deb S.”

“After suffering from Vertigo and Migraines for over 12 years seeing Neurologists, Ear nose and throat specialists and taking advice from anyone to get relief, I was finally introduced to Kim from my ART friend Dan Selstad. I’d been ill for 8 days and felt so desperate for relief, I called Kim and within 30… Read more “Kris R.”

“First of all, as I told you in person, I believe your talents and focus on helping people with vertigo issues makes you ‘a gift to the universe’ – not just a great find for me. I’ve been completely laid low by two debilitating episodes of vertigo in the past 2 years that descended on me… Read more “Igor K.”

Carla R.

“Before I consulted with Dr. Bell, most of the physical therapists I had worked with did not seem as knowledgeable as she was, and were unable to zero into my problems. She is the only one who addressed my blood pressure dropping to nothing upon going from sitting to standing, and [identified] the necessity for… Read more “Carla R.”

Dawn B.

“Before I met Dr. Kimberley Bell, I had been suffering for many years with Vertigo. I have no idea why – I would suddenly just start spinning. Over the years, it seemed to come more often and even started to last for several days. One-day episodes every several years, I could handle. But being stuck… Read more “Dawn B.”

Adrien S.

“Before my friend told me about Dr. Bell, my ignorance prevented me from seeking treatment for vertigo. After working with Dr. Bell, I experienced less dizziness and learned new ways to stop triggering it. She was very present, kind and convincingly capable of solving my problem. Dr. Bell is a doctor I can trust –… Read more “Adrien S.”

“The biggest obstacle I faced before meeting Kimberley was knowledge. Knowledge is power in all walks of life and even caring for an elderly person. Our society does not prepare us for caring for a love one or the elderly until we are thrown in to a traumatic situation. Very few who delve into the… Read more “Missy S.”

Welcome to awesome, Kimberley! Your workshop, “Yoga for Better Balance & Posture in Older Adults” was so amazing. It has already been a week. I tried 2-3 asana’ s from the [balance and posture] workshop in my yoga classes this week and they loved it. The students felt looser and walked out of my class… Read more “D.L.Sweet”

Even though I am not a physical therapist (I’m a personal trainer that only works with older adults) and I therefore could not receive any continuing education units from taking this course, I assisted in Dr. Kim Bell’s 3-day course on “Assessment and Treatment of Dizziness, Vertigo, and Dysequilibrium in Older Adults” because I wanted… Read more “Sue G.”

“Before I took Dr. Bell’s course, the biggest obstacles for me were not having the knowledge, skills, and confidence to feel comfortable with performing the correct dizziness and vertigo assessment tests and then providing the right treatment, especially working with the senior population. Her training made me realize how I much I really did not… Read more “Jim P.”

Prior to taking Dr. Bell’s vestibular training course I felt overwhelmed and undereducated on the pathophysiologies behind vestibular dysfunction and falls. I also struggled with developing appropriate treatment programs for the patients suffering from these disorders.   I was over-cautious in evaluating and treating patients because I was too afraid to bring on the signs and… Read more “Cindy R.”

Susan F.

Before meeting Kim, I was intimidated to treat patients with dizziness and vertigo. Vertigo was a topic I knew a little about, but I was not truly confident in my skills to assess and treat, so I tended to shy away from it. As a result of studying with Kim, I gained a much clearer… Read more “Susan F.”

Kris G.

In the past, I felt truly helpless in treating a patient with vertigo… because it wasn’t a problem I could identify as a strength deficit or due to a lack of safety equipment in their environment, etc.  It is due to a problem in our vestibular system (which I did not fully understand the function of) and… Read more “Kris G.”

The vestibular system is a very complex and intimidating system in our body that is hard to understand and grasp for a lot of people. Kimberley Bell is an amazing instructor that takes her time to explain it in detail with many visuals, demonstrations, easy to read and follow charts, and a calming reassurance and… Read more “Kimi B.”

Prior to completing Dr. Kimberley Bell’s course, “Assessment & Treatment of Dizziness, Vertigo & Dysequilibrium in Older Adults,” subjective reports of dizziness and vertigo were a significant barrier to effective rehabilitation and a source of confusion and patient safety concerns.  Following the course I was immediately able to begin implementing effective vestibular techniques into practice with very effective results. The techniques that Dr.… Read more “Dr. Jon Mayo”
