Brief Bio:

I have been in practice for 25 years and have been working with post polio clients for about 7 years. I was originally invited to work with the patients of neuro-physiotherapist Tori Wilkens who gave me training in working with people of this cohort. I use a combination of Myofascial Release and Acupressure in my treatments. I find that this gentle style of work is ideal for this condition and gets great results, giving pain relief and greater mobility for most people.

In a wider sense, my work is holisitc and encompasses all aspects of the person: physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual. It is my belief that only by including all aspects of who we are can the deepest healing take place.
