My Experience

I have used these manual therapy techniques extensively for about 20 years in my work with individuals who suffer from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and other problems. I worked part-time as a contract massage therapist for 3.5 years at the William Beaumont Army Medical Center outpatient clinic, the Restoration and Resilience Center. I am very grateful that the US Army granted me permission to collect self-reported data about the effects of these manual therapy techniques on active duty soldiers who were diagnosed with chronic Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and who had suffered a head injury that could have caused mild TBI. The results of this study have been published in a peer-reviewed journal (click here).

As a neuroscience researcher, I studied brain anatomy extensively and I integrated that knowledge into my manual therapy practice. Being able to focus the gentle manual therapy I provide on specific areas seems to be more effective in relieving your stress and pain and results in fewer side effects. I have experience working with individuals seeking relief from a wide variety of issues including:

Chronic headache

Pain from adhesions, scar tissue, joint problems

Back and neck pain

Pain from endometriosis

Jaw pain and popping


Other chronic aches and pains throughout the body
