My training allows me to address a wide variety of conditions. I have frequently treated people that have nowhere left to turn for relief. I try to treat the most immediate pain-causing issues, while also treating the musculo-skeletal(postural) patterns that are at the root of the pain. Most problems are not where the pain is being felt, so I use observation, client history, and just plain intuition sometimes to find the original trauma.
