Intense Pain from Ovarian Cysts
Chronic Pelvic Pain
Abdominal Pain After C-Section
A few months back I was experiencing intense pain on my right side. After an ultrasound, I was told I had cysts on my ovaries that were activated around my cycle. The treatment plan was to get on birth control pills or have my ovaries removed. I wasn’t interested in either of those options so I called Dr. Ron. I have been seeing him for over a year for a digestive issue. He also helped me with my bladder so I thought I might as well ask. He said that visceral manipulation could definitely be a helpful option and it was great. After two session, I had no more pain and it hasn’t returned. What I learned is – it never hurts to ask – it’s amazing how our bodies want to heal themselves – they just need a little encouragement from Dr. Ron.
Two and a half years ago, I started experiencing intense, constant burning pain in my groin area and inner thighs. After two trips to the emergency room within a week, I began a months-long search for diagnosis and relief. I saw family medicine doctors, urologists, a pain specialist, and a neurologist. After undergoing a CT scan, an MRI, a cystoscopy and a course of antibiotic and drug treatments, no diagnosis was forthcoming– there were only the things it wasn’t - prostatitis, bladder cancer, nerve damage, tumors, muscle tear, VD, etc. Eventually I found an ayurvedic doctor who made some diet and supplement suggestions that offered some relief, but the pain remained intense enough that I still needed to take a small dose of narcotics every day. My pain was managed but no relief was forthcoming.
Flash forward two years: I was discussing my health with a local naturopathic doctor and began describing my history and type of pain to him. Unlike any other doctor I had talked to up to that point, he understood the type of pain I was experiencing and could describe it for me – the was first time this had happened in all my conversations with doctors. I was used to seeing confused or questioning looks and no more. He said, “I think I know someone who can help you…”, and that’s how I was introduced to Dr. Mariotti and visceral synergy.
After the initial visit to Dr. Mariotti, I noticed immediate effects and relief. After 4 months, I can say that the pain is 80-90% lower on any given day than it has been in the preceding two years – I expect it to be completely gone within a few months if not sooner. I would describe Dr. Mariotti’s technique as firm, but gentle - as well as scientific but intuitive. I would also say, as someone who is typically skeptical of “non-traditional” treatment that I cannot argue with the results and very real relief from experiencing pain for 2 plus years. I cannot recommend Dr. Mariotti highly enough – especially to anyone who has chronic pain, which other doctors have failed to diagnose.

I was referred to Dr. Mariotti after years of abdominal pain brought on from scarring from the c-section delivery of my son. My primary care doctor said it's just one of those things that you must live with. My naturopathic physician said, you must see this doctor up in Seattle and gave me Dr. Mariotti's card. After 5 years of pain I wasn't sure anything could be done. I am so glad I scheduled! After 4 or 5 treatments with Dr. Mariotti my abdominal pain has all but disappeared. The cream he gave me for my scar lessened it's appearance and impact on my digestion much more quickly than I anticipated. After following what my primary naturopath said and having treatments with Dr. Mariotti I am pain free and have normal digestion for the first time in my life. Thank you Dr. Mariotti!
