How I Can Help You
I can effectively address general pain, and/or undiagnosable pain, chronic Pain and acute pain residing anywhere in the body with a group of manual therapies I specialize in. They are a unique and painless form of Myofascial Release Therapy (MFR), Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST), Integrative Manual Therapy (IMT), and Strain-Counter-Strain Therapy. They work synergistically together. This group of therapies began their development in the osteopathic medical profession in the 1930s and the physical therapy profession in the 1970s.
Therapy here is risk free, relaxing, and not painful. All of it is done fully clothed. Chronic pain and Undiagnosable pain and unrelenting deep seated stress can be caused by a restricted sacrum, restricted hip joints, restrictions of the jaw, restriction of C1 with the base of the skull, restricted fascial bones, and bones that make up the skull and other situations. Also, residual effects of concussions can contribute to pain, stress, and discomfort and a variety of dysfunctions.
My advanced training in cranial sacral therapy, myofascial release and integrative manual therapy enables me to help residual effects of concussions. There can be sustained tensions running between different regions and structures of the body. They can be left behind by injuries, deep seated stress, trauma, surgeries, and illness. This often contributes to joint pain, postural problems, nerve, fascia, and muscle pain, headaches, TMJ, muscle pain, inflammation, internal scaring, and weakening of specific areas of bone tissue.
Specialized assessment techniques give me the ability to locate sustained tensions running between different regions and structures of the body so that I can release them. They also give me the ability to assess if pain in one area of the body is having a relationship with pain in another part of the body which could be in a faraway region of the body. For example, the joint of L5 and the sacrum located in the lower back being restricted can contribute to shoulder, neck, and wrist pain. Acute pain can quickly be reduced with the unique form of myofascial release therapy I practice. It reduces inflammation and makes it so swelling can be reduced and the circulation, the immune system, and lymphatics can work more effectively in the effected area.
The techniques I practice here are unique and are not commonly found in the Williamsburg area where I am located. This is why I often get good results after my clients have tried a wide range of therapy and medical interventions.

Learn about the Treatment and Therapy Process
In the first visit we discuss your situation, then have at least an hour of therapy and discuss the findings of the session and a plan for helping you. All therapies used here are hands on, risk free, not painful, and relaxing. They are science based and were developed by osteopathic doctors, chiropractors, and physical therapist.
It’s good to allow 90 minutes to 2 hours to be here on the first visit. The cost is $85 for first visit and $75 per hour of therapy for following sessions. My clients usually experience improvements after the first session.
In the first session I usually use cranial sacral therapy (CST) and a unique form of myofascial release therapy (MFR). All therapies given here are done fully clothed except for massage therapy. Massage therapy is usually not necessary to accomplish good results. MFR is unique because it is given to the fully clothed body and it is never painful and it is capable of releasing stress and tension from all soft tissues down to the level of bone. CST is not painful, releases deep seated stress and tensions, and enables me to discover and release a wide range of restrictions and sustained tensions that could be a significant contributor to your pain, stress, or discomfort. Most clients leave feeling relaxed after the first session.
After the first session a plan for addressing your problem usually comes into view and we will discuss this after the session. It is good to allow yourself to have two more sessions after the first one before deciding if therapy here has potential to help you. I never pressure clients to keep coming if they don’t want to or feel therapy here won’t help them. Cranial sacral therapy was developed by osteopathic doctors and the method of myofascial release i use was developed by physical therapist.
After the first session integrative manual therapy and strain counter strain can be brought into your therapy process. All these therapies complement each other and offer effective risk free help for a wide range of pain, stress and discomfort. When you come for your first appointment I will help you to understand how and why therapy here works with the help of visual aids I have at my office.
