We are a dynamic therapist duo that includes: 2 sets of hands, mighty hearts and a back yard clinic.
I am a Physical Therapist with a broad-based general practice ranging from common musculoskeletal injuries and pain problems to orthopedic and neurologic rehabilitation, spinal pain, and complex pain problems. For years (40+ and no longer counting) I have studied and used a wide variety of manual therapy/hands-on techniques. The approaches I use are based upon biomechanics, anatomy, neurology, and the integral nature of human movement. I am frequently asked, “What do you call that?” referring to my techniques of practice. An orthopedist friend calls it “integrative manual therapy” since my approach integrates a variety of manual therapies with the primary effect of helping my clients move in a more integrated manner.
Perhaps it’s best not labeled but understood and experienced. My aim is to restore a more normal quality of movement in the various bodily systems: skeletal, articular, muscular, fascial, and visceral. Directed by highly practiced perceptions, I use my hands to apply comfortable techniques that release movement-inhibiting restrictions thus allowing an improvement in ease and coherence. The application of specific techniques is tailored to your particular needs and constitution. These range from highly subtle to direct and vigorous depending upon what will be most effective. In the course of treatment I guide your perceptions and self-awareness to help you in your progress toward better movement long beyond the time we complete our sessions. I give simple, specific corrective exercises as a home program.
