PT, LMT, LTC, LLCC
As a Physical Therapist, with over 30 years of clinical experience in treating soft tissue function and pain, I provide a gentle osteopathic approach to healing and wellness. I received my physical therapy degree from Grand Valley State University in 1989 and have studied with the Upledger Institute since 1991. I became certified in Craniosacral Therapy in 1996. In addition to my private practice, I am extensively trained in this work and have been teaching manual therapy classes nationally and internationally for nineteen years for Chikly Health Institute. My caseload tends toward difficult cases which other therapists were unable to resolve. I enjoy easier cases as well, such as sports injuries and surgery recovery. Honoring the intelligence of the body ensures deeper and lasting results.
Trained and co-taught Lymph Drainage Therapy, with the founder Bruno Chikly, MD., LDT is an original hands-on method of lymphatic drainage created out of award-winning research on the lymphatic system. LDT takes traditional lymph drainage techniques and adds a level of precision consistent with recent scientific discoveries.
