Dorinda Galbraith Physical Therapy


Dorinda Galbraith Physical Therapy was established in 1994 practicing initially in Hanover, Rockland and Brookline, Ma. Now located in Boston, MA and Greenville, Maine I have over 38 years of experience in holistic manual therapy. One of my greatest skills is integrating healing techniques that help free the physical and emotional bodies from restrictions. This helps relieve pain that may have sources in physical, mental, or emotional sources or any combination of these. My treatments are gentle hands on sessions and I use a variety of assessments to determine how to most efficiently address the patients restrictions to provide the most relief and the most optimal health. I've been fortunate to train and continue training with many of the developers of wonderful healing techniques, like John Upledger, Jean-Pierre Barral, Lawrence Jones, Bruno Chikly, Steve Moran, Carolyn Myss, Tom Tam, John Barnes, Sharon Weiselfish and Zoe Marae. A person can have an accumulation of traumas that can get stored in the physical tissue which the body learns to compensate around, but at an expense. When the body runs out of areas to compensate, symptoms start showing up. These symptoms might not be located where the major stored traumas are. By using a whole body approach to assessing, I help locate the more important restrictions that the body is working around. Freeing these are much more efficient and lasting for the patient than chasing the last symptom. Often when someone is treated and the symptom keeps coming back, the primary restriction has not been found and/or there is also emotional or mental trauma stored in the physical tissues that needs to be freed before the tissues can heal. The skills I have learned and practiced for many years can help free these. My medical background as a Physical Therapist also allows me to integrate conventional physical therapy with a holistic manual therapy approach. I treat all ages and most conditions. Treatment is done one on one in a private room. Loose clothing is preferred. I have experience with babies and Women's and Men's Urogenital Health. The training I've had in: Visceral Manipulation, Cranio Sacral Therapy, Lymphatic Drainage, Articular Joint, Brain Curriculum, Strain/Counterstrain, Urogenital Visceral Manipulation, Neural Manipulation, and more can help acute injuries, chronic pain and dysfunction anywhere in the body and with patients of any age. I am also certified in Burdenko Aquatic and Sports Therapy. Dorinda Galbraith Physical Therapy recently receives Best of Brookline Award 2014!
