My belief is that given the right nutrition, physical and mental guidance the body has an innate ability to heal itself. Western Medicine has taken this gift and replaced it with treating the symptoms and/or masking them with medications. Our beliefs and attitudes play a role in how we heal or don't heal. We need to search for the "root" causes of disease and attack it with a holistic approach. My personal battle with chronic pain (at 20 years old) and later gut issues that led to depression and fatigue, as well as a child with food sensitivities has given me a deeper knowledge and empathy when working with clients.
I am both a physical therapist and nutritionist. I have specialized in chronic pain for the last 15 years. My myofascial release expertise (a form of energy and bodywork) has given me a special combination to work with patients who have may be challenged with a combination of tissue restrictions, deep emotional issues and nutritional imbalances. Many patients with fibromyalgia, gut pain, headaches, infertility, depression & anxiety can fall into this category.
