Medical Massage, Ortho-Bionomy, Hypnosis, Healing Touch Energy Work.
Massage and Ortho-Bionomy are designed to help remove physical pain and stiffness/discomfort due to trauma, inactivity, and other conditions. Massage accomplishes this largely through fascial or deep tissue work. Orth-Bionomy largely through following a path of ease and comfortable positions.
Hypnosis and Energy work can help relax the body and remove psychological & emotional impediments in order to sharpen inner focus and accelerate one's progress in life.

Philosophy and Comments
My massage background in deeper tissue work combines well for me with my "softer" approach in Ortho-Bionomy to help find the most pain-free release for my clients and patients. I am a "Medical" Massage Therapist because my goal is the same as the medical profession, to promote health and healing before all else. I believe my profession of Massage therapy and "Bodywork" and the medical profession should be closely allied and working together.
