About Me
Through several years of experience, I have blended a diverse background of formal medically related education with hands-on therapeutic training to evaluate each client's concerns. A variety of specific techniques are utilized in every session to efficiently locate and reduce the causes of pain and physical issues, rather than just treating the symptoms. My skills include Visceral Therapy, Neuro Manipulation, Lymphatic Decongestive Therapy, CranioSacral Therapy, Vibrational Shiatsu, Pre/Post Pregnancy Therapies and a wide range of massage related modalities. Advanced Integrated Therapy provides the unique ability to improve the quality of your physical well being, while rejuvenating inherent rhythms that enhance balance within your body. All sessions are customized to the clients’ concerns. I invite you to restore yourself with Advanced Integrated Therapy.

My skills

Certified in Lymphatic Decongestive Therapy: The use of lymphatic rhythms and correction techniques to drain tissues of excessive fluid, reduce pressure and pain from most areas of the body, including breasts and internal structures. This can also promote detox.
Visceral Therapeutic Techniques: Each part of your body has a specific rhythm and path of movement. Visceral Therapy helps release tension inhibiting these rhythms, which can alleviate physical disruptions.
Neuro Manipulation: A series of release methods for nerve restrictions to reduce pain and restore proper tissue function.
CranioSacral Therapy: A protocol of techniques developed by Dr. John Upledger to reduce tension within the skull and spine for improving physical function.
Vibration Shiatsu: An efficient modality which uses trigger points with vibrational pulsing to release tension in isolated areas of the body.
Massage Modalities: Besides the typical massage skills; compression, muscle energy, and contract/relax techniques can also be used.
Pre/Post Pregnancy Therapies: All of the above therapies can be used during pregnancy with certain precautions, along with specific techniques for releasing general discomfort, especially back tension, during the stages of pregnancy.

Hours of operation / Fees

Office Hours are daily, Monday through Sunday, morning to late afternoon, and some evenings.

Loose, stretchable, clothing is typically worn during each session. Gym clothes, T-shirts, sweat pants, P-J's are good choices. Being well hydrated by drinking a couple glasses of water an hour or two before the session allows the treatment to be more effective.

Rest or light activities is recommended after each session to let the treatment settle well. Going directly to strenuous physical activity soon after a session may not be beneficial. Typically, about 24 hours of no strenuous activity after a treatment helps the therapy to establish a positive change.
