Helping people be pain free
I graduated from Cal Poly, with a degree in Electrical Engineering in 2007. After a few years working at Agilent Technologies in Santa Rosa, I discovered my new passion: the human body. Soon I experienced some profound healing through bodywork, (particularly Active Release Technique) - a year later I left my engineering career to help others. I build a picture of where a persons body is, and a roadmap to lead them to a different place through movement and tissue work. I'm passionate about helping others help themselves through educating them about their body.
The brain, being the central governor and interpreter of all inputs to the body - determines when to feel pain. In order to change that interpretation, we must change the inputs (posture, movement, tension, proprioception) or change the interpreter (beliefs, thoughts, emotions, etc).
First step is a phone call and short interview.
Then an in person assessment with detailed neurological, postural, movement, and soft tissue assessments and several test treatments, and a proposed treatment plan.
At age 27 I developed chronic shoulder pain. After half a year struggling through the western medical system, doctors and physical therapists - I discovered something that worked and a person that really helped. This inspired me to emulate that person and bring my own engineering style thinking to the complex and amazing problem solving process of helping people overcome pain!
