Janell's Background

Janell has 25 years of rehabilitation experience, as a physical therapist and Certified Pilates instructor. She is highly skilled in a wide array of manual therapy techniques, including Advanced Fascial Counterstrain, Craniosacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation, Somatoemotional Release, Unwinding Meridians with Acupressure, and Muscle Energy Techniques. Assessment of every system of the body(including pain or dysfunction resulting from problems with the muscles, ligaments, bones, nerves, veins, lymph, arteries, organs, brain, endocrine,cranial rhythm or other energies)can be incorporated into therapeutic treatments as needed to achieve the desired outcome. Therapeutic exercise and home programs for self management may be incorporated on an individual basis. Clients may opt for instruction in integrative, self management strategies, which can supplement your therapeutic gains. Each of Janell's family members, as well as herself, have recovered from injuries or pain, and have benefited in countless ways from receiving Fascial Counterstrain and Craniosacral Therapy. Janell is excited to share these innovative techniques with others.

My Skills

Craniosacral Therapy

CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Using a soft touch, about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.By complementing the body's natural healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.

SomatoEmotional Release

SER is a therapeutic process that uses and expands on the principles of CranioSacral Therapy to help rid the mind and body of the residual effects of trauma. Applications are designed to enhance results using CST and other complementary therapies.

Unwinding Meridians With Acupressure

Find out how the points and meridians of acupuncture relate to the cranial rhythm. Connections can be drawn between the craniosacral system, organs, emotions, sounds, colors, tastes and much more. Based on your body's inner wisdom, exercises can be prescribed to enhance and balance your energy.

Advanced Fascial Counterstrain

Fascial Counterstrain is a highly skilled method that relies on a scan of all of the body's systems in order to locate and treat the origin(s) of pain. It is based soundly in anatomy, and can be explained by the most recent explosion of scientific research on fascia. Because we treat the source of the problem(s), our success rates tend to be very high, with often immediate and clinically observable results produced from the very first session onward. We look forward to serving you at one of our several locations in southeastern Wisconsin, less than an hour north of Milwaukee.

Clinically observable effects

The clinically observable effects of these treatments commonly include: decreased pain, decreased tenderness, decreased swelling, normalization of muscle tone, increased circulation; improved posture, improved proprioception improved efficiency of muscle recruitment patterns, increased range of motion, improved strength, and improved functional performance.
