  • Get Well and Stay Well

    My goal as a natural health care practitioner is to encourage the body and mind to regain and maintain their normal function. Indeed, when you create health, dis-ease disappears.

    Since I began my professional practice in 1986, I have developed a way of working that synthesizes some of the most effective natural therapies. I have always sought to find what really helps people get well. What I have learned over the years I bring to each of my clients and I offer here to you.

    As you help the body regain its normal function, many health problems resolve naturally. Some of the conditions I have successfully worked with include:

    • low back pain
    • joint pain
    • neck and shoulder pain
    • hiatal hernia/heartburn
    • P.M.S./menstrual irregularity
    • bacterial and viral syndromes
    • chronic low energy/weakness
    • candida/yeast problems
    • parasites
    • digestive problems
    • stress overload
    • prostate disorders

    This work is also good preventive therapy. You not only get well but you stay well, too, protected from recurrences of your old ailments. Moreover, some conditions, not even considered diseases, are problems that need to be addressed because they can set the stage for the occurrence of serious illness down the road. Through muscle testing and nutrition it is possible to improve the internal environment so that the body is less susceptible to future health problems.

    Is This Work Right for You?

    People come to me for a variety of reasons. For many, a weekly massage serves as an antidote to stress or as a recuperative phase of their fitness program. Others are looking for help with chronic pain or injuries, while still others seek answers to health problems that have not responded to previous therapies. The services I offer are tailored to meet your needs whether you are ill, in tip-top shape, or somewhere in between. The goal is to increase your wellness: your vitality, your ease of movement, the function of your body, and your peace of mind.

    If you have a question about my practice, please do not hesitate to call. I will be happy to speak with you and help you decide if my work is appropriate for you, personally.
