What do you do?
How can you relieve my pain?

Your body is unique. To effectively treat your body, I use a three-step process: First I find out what's wrong, what happened, and how it's impacting your life. Then I pinpoint the key underlying cause of your problem. Finally I treat it by custom-blending techniques I've learned and practiced for 19 years, to get the response you want. I find it, fix it, and send you on your way.

Will it hurt?

Over 90% of the techniques I use are gentle and non-intrusive, yet extremely effective. Occasionally, I may briefly use a technique that is uncomfortable. In these instances, I ask you for feedback to keep the work in your comfort zone. I never use techniques that feel so painful that you tense up and guard against the discomfort.

What is the definition of pain?

The International Association for the Study of Pain defines pain as an unpleasant sensory or emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage.

What is acute pain?

Acute pain is the pain you feel immediately upon injury and experience throughout the healing process, usually lasting no longer than 3 months. Pain you feel from bruises, sprains, broken bones, and torn ligaments or muscle fibers are examples of acute pain.

What is chronic pain?

Chronic pain is defined as any pain that persists beyond a 3-month period. Chronic pain can linger even when the original source is gone.
