I am currently undergoing an extensive four year program involving courses such as clinical anatomy, physiology, and body pathology. My treatments are based on the idea that the body can self-heal and self-regulate while the practitioner facilitates the healing. With my principle based education, every patient's treatment will be different because not all symptoms point to the same root dysfunction.

I can help you with both acute and chronic pain as well as help to restore your body's optimal structural alignment.
