Clinical Interests

I am specif­i­cal­ly inter­est­ed in pelvic health and pelvic well­ness for both women and men. I pre­fer to empha­size core and kinet­ic chain in func­tion­al activ­i­ties per­ti­nent to patient per­ceived lim­i­ta­tions and patient goals. As a man­u­al ther­a­pist I use joint and soft tis­sue mobi­liza­tion, mus­cle ener­gy tech­niques, fas­cial mobi­liza­tion, cran­iosacral ther­a­py and vis­cer­al manip­u­la­tion tech­niques to assist with pain or symp­tom relief and to improve neu­ro­mus­cu­loskele­tal balance.
