I have been in private practice since 1996. In addition to the following list of modalities my continuing studies since 2015 encompass on-going exploration in advanced anatomy & physiology through Kinections, Inc. (Sacramento CA) & Bay Grass Institute (Lutherville MD). This has allowed me to combine these modalities into what I call Integrative Somatic Therapy. These studies are based on the most current research & practices so that I can always provide the best level of soft tissue treatments.
