PURPOSE:

I have created a sacred space for healing on all levels, physically (cellular and structural),
mentally and spiritually. Utilizing nature, sound, light, and intension, along with manual
technique, I offer myself and my farm as an instrument to those who do not respond to
conventional forms of treatment. Using this purely osteopathic foundation, I provide the highest
quality manual physical therapy services and education to patients with chronic pain and/or
complex dysfunction. As an advocate for people with complex injuries, I provide access to the
complimenting aspects of conventional and alternative medical services as well as networking. I
am dedicated to teaching osteopathy globally to medical professionals and the public at large.
