Why I live "THE HERMINATOR"
Herman of "Your Footprints" is the best at what he does. I have known Herman for many years, mostly during his days of wallpaper hanging. Well, needless to say he was great at that! Now, for the past seven or so years I have been going to Herman for his "hands" again. Well, this is really his calling! I have NEVER been to a massage therapist that truly "hits the spot" each time without me even telling him where I hurt!!
That is talent!
I always come out feeling 99.9% better than when I did when I arrive at his door. I go to Herman every 14 days. I count down the days each week just wishing I could really afford this fantastic experience every day! HE CANNOT BE BEAT!!!!!!!!!

From client with Bells Palsy:
I woke up from a nap and felt a tingling sensation on the right side of my face. When I looked in the mirror I was surprised to see my eye wide open and my face and mouth slightly drawn. I had no pain symptoms, but, within thirty minutes my right eye would not close and my lips were numb. I went to Lake After Hours, the Doctor there explained that I had Bells Palsy and prescribed a high dosage of antibiotics and steroids. He explained that this condition would have to heal itself. He said I could be looking at anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 months before my face would look "normal" again. I decided to see my ENT because I had a tumor in my right ear years ago and wanted to rule that out. My ENT suggested a cat scan be run so I made an appointment with a neurologist. All the tests came back negative and they suggested I have physical therapy on my facial muscles, but warned me that I could still be looking at 6 to 9 months before I got full recovery in my face. When I called to make an appointment with physical therapy, the nurse explained that they would be glad to see me, but there was no guarantee. From there I decided to see a reflexology specialist, Herman Bonnette. It was amazing what happened to me at the first visit. His touch was literally healing. As he worked on my feet my eye began to close and I began to feel a tingling sensation on the right side of my face. I returned for more massage two days later. With great surprise my face was back to normal within two weeks. Herman explained this could have been caused from a vitamin deficiency and suggested ways to prevent this from happening in the future. I returned to my ENT for a check up and he was amazed at my unusual speedy recovery. He asked what had I done and I gladly shared my experience with my massage therapist, Herman Bonnette. I would suggest to anyone who has to experience this condition to go to Herman to receive emotional and physical healing.

"in such pain I couldn’t stand up"
As I dressed for work early one morning, I felt that much too familiar pain in my lower back. I had suffered from lower back pain for many years, and the only relief I had found was to stay off my feet for 7 to 10 days with an ice bag. As I slowly stood up, the pain took my breath away. I managed to locate my ice bag and eventually made it to work. Fortunately, I already had an appointment with Herman scheduled for that afternoon. When I reached Herman’s office late that afternoon, I was in such pain I couldn’t stand up straight. Once I was on the table and after a few minutes of reflexology and “feel good” massage, Herman began to work on the muscles deep within my stomach and back. After about 30 minutes of deep muscle massage, I began to be able to move my legs without the excruciating pain that I had been experiencing all day. When Herman was done and we had shared a few laughs, I was able to stand up straight and walk out of his office in much less pain that I had when I arrived. Within 2 or 3 days I was completely free of pain and able to return to my normal routine.
I now visit Herman on a regular basis, not only for pain relieving massage but for reflexology, stress relief and a few laughs with a good friend. As I leave his office, his next “victim” is anxiously awaiting their turn. For anyone looking for a wonderful massage therapist and a good friend, I highly recommend Herman Bonnette and Your Footprints.
Bubble Peppermint Addiction
I began seeing Mr. Herman for neck & hip problems. I mentioned that i was addicted to the bubble peppermints at my office, eating sometimes 30 a day. He administered EFT one time and I have had not one bubble peppermint in over 4 months and have no desire for them. I am amazed!

Skeptical to Believer
I couldn't have been more skeptical about reflexology when i first went to Mr. Herman. But I thought, what did I have to lose - my health was deteriorating and depression was setting in. I had gone to 5 different doctors and thankful, they could find nothing wrong - but were treating the symptoms, not finding a cure. How frustrating for me!
Time passed as i continued to see Mr. Herman...amazed that he knew what was wrong, knew what i ate, and worked those areas of my feet even when i didn't tell him. God has truly blessed this man with a special gift - the love and knowledge...and with words of grace!
Today, even though I've moved away, i can still hear his words..."Stay on the outside aisle of the grocery store - the middle is full of landmines" and many more...How i miss Mr. Herman!
So if you're skeptical like i was, look at it this way - what have you got to lose? Being a victim of Mr. Herman's reflexology will change your life - he did for me! Thank you Mr. Herman!
This is a testimony of how Herman Bonnette and Massage Therapy saved my life…
I am a wife and mother of four. I was diagnosed with Auto Immune Hepatitis at age 33, after my fourth child was born. That means my immune system thought my liver was sick and it attacked it, trying to kill it. I was put on steroids. I was slowly growing weaker, my joints ached, and I developed arthritis in my hands. All side effects of the steroids I was taking to help my liver.
It got to the point that when I would wake up and put my feet on the floor they hurt so badly I could hardly stand it. It would take about two hours before I felt well enough to get up and start moving around. I don’t remember how long I put up with feeling this way but on this particular day I could take it no more. I was so depressed and discourage I went to see Mr. Herman and his lovely wife.
Mr. Herman had told me I need to get off the steroids because they were crippling me, but I was afraid because that was the only thing helping my liver. So Mr. Herman developed a vitamin regimen for me and I started getting massages from him. He also helped me find a doctor that would take my insurance and monitor my blood work and she told me she was impressed with the vitamin regimen he developed.
I would see Mr. Herman twice a week for about two hours each day. It would hurt, sometimes I even cried, but it was helping. It got to the point that I would anticipate the pain and flinch before he touched me, then we would both laugh. I was getting better. I was so excited the day I went to get my massage and it didn’t hurt. It took about a year before I could get off the steroids and I have been in remission for twelve years. Mr. Herman gave my husband his wife back. Mr. Herman gave my kids their mom back. Mr. Herman gave me my life back! THANK YOU DADDY!

Acu Kinesiology believer
Just had to let you know that I am now a true believer in your Acu Kinesiology! I came to you after one very, very hectic, emotional and physical day. I left you feeling so relaxed and woke up the next morning with energy that I had not experienced in a long time!!! Keep up your healing work.

I was referred to Herman at Your Footprints by a massage therapist whose schedule was not able to help me for at least 2 weeks. She gave me a referral and said she used him herself. Wow, I thought...what a referral - one that she uses! So I called up Herman and as God would have it, he was available and I scheduled. Upon arriving at his office, I noticed a sign on the door saying "Happy Birthday Herman...70 years old!" So at first I'm wondering what am I about to walk into here? I was apprehensive but was greeted by a smiling, joyful "old" man. I had the most effective massage and would like to refer to it as I see it...a physical therapy type massage. I had not felt so rejuvenated in all my life. Happily, I set my next 2 hour appt and got into my car. As I was driving away, a feeling of shear sadness came over me as I wondered how many more years could Herman possibly have left doing this and how was it that I had lived in this town all my life and did not ever meet him before now. I'm wondering how long will I be able to indulge in this wellness plan! Well I know now that Herman is in excellent shape it seems but mostly it's his Maker's Love that he passes on to his clients and that the providence of God has him helping others thru God's Love as long as HE chooses. Hallelujah!
To anyone looking for a massage referral...Herman completely cares about what he does and the people he works on. He absolutely believes in what he does and that certainty is passed on to the massage given you. One visit and you are a believer...one visit will have you coming back!

Mr. Herman is the BEST!!! My grandson, 2 month at the time, cried and screamed all the time. I could not figure out what was wrong. I mention to my friend about him crying all the time and she said, "Take him to Uncle Herman". I was desperate so i went to see Uncle Herman. That was one of the best days of my life. He took the baby in his arms and said "I know what's wrong. It's his iliopsoas". He brought him to the back, did whatever miracle he does with his miracle hands and gentle voice. Within 30 minutes our little Samaj was a happy baby boy. He is about to turn 1 within a couple of weeks and is already walking, or should i say running, and is happy as ever.

I will try to keep it short but I completely agree with every other client. Mr. Herman truly has a healing touch and after experiencing Acu-Kinesiology for the first time, I must say an experience on his table is a very unique and one-of-a-kind treasure. I am a licensed massage therapist as well and have been to other therapists but never an experience like this. Nothing bad toward any other therapist because everyone has their own way but Mr. Herman's way is AMAZING!!!
Thanks Uncle Herman!

I can't stress enough what a difference just that AK treatment and the reflexology did to change my circumstances. I have done everything possible on my end with no change and a session with AK and reflexology just set my body in motion I am sooo grateful! I'd like to stand up on top of a tall building and scream how much this stuff helps and works for everyone to hear I'm so happy
