I am a certified CranioSacral Therapist (since 1991). I specialize in unresolved pain due to physical or emotional stress or trauma.
I am an experienced Occupational Therapist, Certified CranioSacral Therapist and Manual Therapist in Union Square, New York City.
I use my hands to detect tension and imbalance in the muscles, nerves, organs, bones and tissues of the body. These tensions occur when the body has experienced excessive physical or emotional stress or trauma.
If the body can not dissipate the area of tension or "blockage" it may become a restriction. Restrictions then cause more adjacent tension and may lead to poor circulation, decreased mobility, pain or illness. My goal is to assist the body with correcting imbalances and restrictions by encouraging and supporting the body's natural healing mechanisms.
I offer a unique combination of therapies including CranioSacral Therapy, SomatoEmotional Release, Visceral Manipulation and other methods to decrease restrictions, improve health and optimize function. Therapy is highly effective, non-invasive, and risk-free.
My medical background of 30+ years in orthopedic and neurological rehabilitation (NYU Rusk Institute, Hospital for Special Surgery, Beth Israel Medical Center), pediatric Occupational Therapy (developmental and Sensory Integration at Integrative Pediatrics), combined with 25 years of CranioSacral practice, has provided me with a wealth of experience, education, and never ending awe of the body and it's ability to heal.
My passion is working with people to facilitate physical and emotional health for for babies, children and adults (and dogs!)
As an Occupational Therapist in several major NYC outpatient physical rehabilitation clinics I realized that there was more to healing physical pain than straight exercise. I saw that considering different physical, physiological and emotional factors were essential to heal the whole person.
Clients often describe their first visit as feeling relaxed, calm, peaceful, nourished, spacious, less pain, more mobile. Amazed at how effective a light touch can be.
