ADHD Autism Children Healer Intuitive Occupational Medicine Steering Committee Wound Healing

Occupational Therapist, & AWC Steering Committee Member

I am a Master’s level Occupational Therapist who graduated from OT school in 1981. I have worked as an OT in a wide variety of settings and still love my work!

Many years ago, I realized that people in pain do not want to do exercise. I started massaging my patients for a few minutes at the start of each treatment and found that I got a much better level of participation. Over the intervening years, I have developed my own method of using superficial myofascial release, a hands-on technique, to reduce pain and try to facilitate permanent soft tissue changes and healing.
