I just learned that Dr. Lupowitz died in March. I'm stunned I'm going to miss him so much. I hadn't seen him for several years, but that's how it's been since I first went in for his treatments at age 16: I'd see him regularly for a few years, then be out of state, or the country, for a few years, then back to see him, etc. The summer of 1999 I had the pleasure of filling in sometimes for Linda at Corrales Chiropractic. It was such a great job! So calm, and quiet, in such a lovely location. Dr. Lupowitz rarely had down time - the last time I went in for a stretch of treatments his five tables were always occupied, with every possible kind of person New Mexico has to offer; a complete spectrum of humanity represented. I rarely had a chance to chat with him then: that was about 2010-2012. But back in 1999, we often had a chance to talk, and I got to know how intelligent, thoughtful, and humble he was. Just a couple of years before, he had used his special distance healing technique to save my grandmother, Alice Woolf's, life, after she pitched forward head first down a flight of basement stairs onto the cement floor below, breaking her neck, both wrists, fracturing both elbows and the tips off of several of her upper vertebrae. She was in desperate shape; she ended up in a head "halo" screwed into her skull and setting on her shoulders, in a wheel chair with casts on both wrists and encasing her upper arms. Robert faithfully treated her, from a distance, and then much later when she was able, she went in often to their office, and she healed so fast her regular doctors couldn't explain it. Robert and Linda came to Alice's funeral in June, 1997; Linda wrote such a beautiful poem for Alice's service. My mother, Susan Schulte, and I were both lifelong patients ourselves. Now We'll miss him sorely, and regret this last stretch of falling out of touch. I always assumed he'd still be there when I needed him again. I'm heartbroken he's gone; I'm so sorry I missed the chance to say good bye. I'll miss him for the rest of my life. I think it sucks he's dead (Robert wouldn't mind that last comment: he was used to me!). His treatments fundamentally changed my life and my Mom's life, and we'll miss him. Terribly. Much love, Dr. Lupowitz. The world has lost some of its light now that you're gone. Don't laugh! I'm not being sappy! It's true! Peace and Happy Journeys to you! Love, ~Emma

April 04, 2017 Linda, I am so sorry to hear of Robert's passing, he was such a great man and full of life. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. ~ Julie Matt, Albuquerque, New Mexico
April 06, 2017 Linda, we were so sad to hear about Robert and wanted you to know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. ~ Jennifer and Roger George, Rio Rancho, New Mexico
April 09, 2017 None of us are getting out alive, but Robert left us a moment too soon. He taught me how to drive my mother's massive Turquoise 1962 Chevy station wagon in 1972. Michele and I met up with he, Linda and Jessie ( their beautiful golden retriever) in Santa Fe In the summer of 1973. For two months we lived in Hyde Park as neighbors in Leantos and somehow managed to go to work as servers at The Forge Restaurant in town, while Michele attended St.Johns. Although we only saw Robert and Linda occasionally through the last 30 years, the meet ups at Luigi's were always fun and funny. We were always grateful for the times he adjusted us with his magic touch. We send love and hugs to the whole family. ~ Kyle and Judy Cook, BOSQUE FARMS, New Mexico
April 09, 2017 Linda & Family - Such a sad loss to so many of us left behind. I grieve not for Robert as my faith tells me God had a much higher assignment for him. My prayers and thoughts go out to you, who I know will suffer a big emptiness in your life. God be with you. Along with your friendship for many decades, I am thankful to have also had your care. A trip to Robert's clinic not only meant a healthier body but also an uplifted soul. Bless your soul Robert and your peaceful flight - or swim above the universe - home. ~ Norma Gruber, Rio Rancho, New Mexico
April 15, 2017 Dear Linda and family, Robert was a wonderful charismatic healer who could put people at ease no matter what ailment they are facing. We will miss him greatly, but will always have fond memories of his kindness and encouragement. Linda , you and Robert provided more than chiropractic service, it was truly a God given talent of healing and love beyond measure. God be with you forever.

Dearest Robert, my kindred spirit, It is with a heavy heart that I write to you, but wish to add a glimmer of light. I wanted you to know how much your help means to me and has meant to me since I first entered your office. Although I can never even begin to repay you for all that you have done for me, I want to reach out into your presence and explain how you touched my soul during my darkest time. You took me under your wing for so many years and successfully helped me to overcome countless obstacles that lingered before me. Your personality and seamless confidence has inspired me to rise above the bar of the myopic public healthcare order, and take back my health from following in its devastating and destructive path. You stood by me when even I gave up! You saw something invisible to my sight and perception. The essential hope and care you instilled into my heart allowed me to respond with love and taught me peace. Still on the critical crossroads of healing, your gift has lifted me above the storm of malady. With love and eternal heart felt respect, thank you.
Robert, my kindred spirit, The Bible relates life to a mist. I am starting to understand and with you gone, I feel it. You always were so good at making me feel healthy. Even in your passing you were able to stop time so it hurt less. What is a month's time to eternity? Words cannot express the bitterness I feel at death! I know what you would say as I hear your voice say it with complete confidence and strength, "Awww...Jenz..." Once again you have helped me to focus instead on the good. Focus instead on life! I wrote you a letter, not knowing you had passed, 4 days after you took flight. I want to post it because you might see it.

How can I say, "thank you"? Can you hear me? I believe you are in a place where you can perceive the love we have for you. Thank you for helping my daughter all these years, I appreciated your healing touch and encouragement you gave her during her moments of hopelessness. Linda, I am also thankful for your kindness and gentleness, the most gracious of persons. YOU encouraged Jenny so much and both of you are special in my heart. May Robert rest in peace.
Robert was a dear friend, and I am so grateful that our 3rd musketeer, child-hood friend, Chuck Nittrouer, got us back together in 2015, after 47 years. Our visits were all too brief, yet healing for me in a different way. To feel some small part of Robert's life before he passed, is something I will always treasure. It brought back a flood of happy childhood memories, one of which I shared with Jeffrey and Linda. God bless Linda, their family, Jeffrey, and above all, Robert. He was a bright, sensitive, kind, and hilarious man. With love, Rich
I came to Robert's practice a number of years ago with an excruciating pain. he skillfully addressed the problem area. I found his office to be nurturing and relaxing. I will miss him very much.
Our meeting more than a decade ago was this body's call for pain relief and debilitation from 'frozen shoulder syndrome.' Everything attempted failed--until Robert's touch. Together we were persistent and relief indeed came one incremental touch at a time, allowing the body to heal itself. * My mom also found relief, right up to her last days--his remote touch perhaps allowed her passing with ease. Thank you, Robert. And Danielle thanks you for walking out and sharing those doggie treats and head rubs through the car window 🙂
"Your body knows how to heal itself, all I do is give reminders".
Over the years his healing hands helped me in ways to countless to mention. It was with a profound sadness that I learned of his passing. I will miss the healing presence of him. My heart is with you, Linda and your family.
I was referred by a friend to Robert a little over a year ago. I am truly grateful for his healing touch and healing capacities. I always enjoyed going to the office and walking out feeling better. I was saddened to hear about Robert's sudden passing. I wish we could have him here a little longer. Wishing Linda and family ease and peace on their journey. Love and hugs....
Linda, thank you so much for all the ways you've chosen love and kindness in your own time of grief, in how you've chosen to let us know what is going on, and providing ways for us to be included and even looked after at the office. You are a love warrior I feel sure. It feels kinda of hard to know what to say/write, as many things have flowed through me since learning of Robert's passing. I lost my sister in January, and at my February 11 treatment with Robert, he found grief in my body. He was most caring as he acknowledged how the loss of a loved one would affect me and my body, and encouraged me to be gentle with myself. So when I learned that just a month later we lost him, I realized while he treated me, his own body was going through something large at that same time. The love and outpouring for him, and Linda's kindness, I am moved in so many ways, learning through this receiving, inclusion, and discovering more about Robert's reach. Robert showed interest in my projects and travels,and vice versa, and we shared laughter and humour and of course I want to believe I was his favourite Canadian :). I am witnessing his reach in our community and beyond, how he touched people honestly, was present and sharing face to face time with each of us. That is a beautiful and healing gift he gave. Namaste dear one.
March 27, 2017 Linda and Family~ Our words cannot express the sorrow of reading about Robert's passing. We will forever be in his debt for the healing he facilitated with every session he worked on both Mike and I. It is an honor to know people of you and Robert's caliber. With much healing love and light -Paula Miller & Mike Bachicha
