I have always been amazed by how the human body's anatomy (bones/joints, all soft tissue/fascia/muscle, and organs) can become partially displaced and stuck, caused by injuries, due to impacts from falls, car accidents, sports, and etc.. Even after a torn soft tissue or broken bone has been repaired, impact injuries may still leave an unusual variety of misalignments that disrupts the balance of the body's musculoskeletal, soft tissue, and organ systems (including other physiological systems). It is the adhesions (stuck tissues) and displaced tissues that cause chronic pain and hinder the body's movement and strength capabilities.
Since 1997, I have been focused on releasing those adhesions and rebalancing the displaced tissues to relieve muscle and joint pains caused by injuries from head to toe. In order to become more intelligent and skillful to help solve the body's dysfunctional patterns which cause pain, I completed an excellent 1,000 hour "Master Bodyworker" (MBW) program in 1999, from the Institute of Conscious Bodywork, in Marin County, California.
In order to specialize in Neuromusculoskeletal Therapy, and to gain even more detailed knowledge to help resolve chronic pain issues, from adhesions and displaced tissues, I completed an additional 800 hours of specific studies and training focused on human anatomy, (including two full-body cadaver courses) with an emphasis on working to rebalance the joints, muscles, and fascia from head to toe.
By combining advanced education and training, with years of clinical experience focused on resolving client's pains and injuries, I created my very unique and successful approach to Neuromusculoskeletal Therapy by thinking beyond bodywork's "text book" possibilities to resolve pains caused by injuries. By having an open mind, and trusting the client's feedback that we are moving in a correct direction, the clients and I are able to find some amazing angles to joint misalignments, tissue adhesions, and dysfunctional compensation patterns that other practitioners did not find and therefore could not solve the pains from injuries.
With this new open mindedness, I put together my expertise in Neuromusculoskeletal Therapy using myofascial/fascial release, soft-tissue mobilization, joint mobilization, cranial sacral, and Neuromuscular Reprogramming® to create an innovative and powerful blend of very dynamic, yet gentle, manual therapy treatments. My unique blend of specialized bodywork and testing methodology (e.g. "body positional testing" and "body positional correcting") is very successful in relieving chronic pains and solving for compensation patterns caused by trauma and rebalancing the whole body from head ("TMJ") to toe ("Plantar Fasciitis") and everything in between.
My specialized therapeutic bodywork allows the client and me to know we are doing exactly what the client's body needs to correct itself in a safe manner (using the body's innate intelligence) thereby empowering the client to help direct their healing process.
After working on clients in pain clinics and for Chiropractors, my reputation for solving chronic pain issues grew enough to where I opened my own office in Novato, CA, in March 2008. I am here to serve, and do my best, to help relieve your chronic pain issues and improve your quality of life.
Please call me to see if I can help relieve your pain and improve your quality of life.
