At each session, you will be able to set some achievable goals, acquire nutrition education in support of those goals, and furthermore, you will be able to list out the steps necessary to achieve those goals. New goals will be added at follow up sessions, and overtime, more and more health focused behaviors will be developed. Focus areas will be based on needs and goals. For some, this may be reducing the risk of disease development, disease management, achieving or maintaining a healthy weight, or improving sports or activity performance.

I take great care to explore with each patient what technique is going to work best for them. I specialize in myofascial release which then usually leads to trigger point and deep tissue work followed by Active Isolated Stretching(AIS). I also use Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT)on a regular basis.I am also a certified Bowenwork Practitioner. Bowenwork is a point specific light touch therapy that enables the body to rebalance itself. I continue to be amazed by power of this method.
