Practice History

Practicing physical therapy for 27 years in different settings and from different approaches, has afforded me many enlightening experiences which have molded my current clinical practice into its unique framework. My deep interest in neurology and its amazing interconnections in the human body have influenced the journey of my education. It is my belief that to truly peel away at layers of trauma requires this understanding. One must embrace an eclectic approach to bodywork.

Twelve years ago, I attended a lecture given by two physical therapists on CranioSacral therapy. It changed my life and my practice. It also began my studies with the Upledger Institute. Dr. John Upledger, D.O., began extensive research into the CranioSacral system in the 1970’s. The CranioSacral rhythm was in fact first identified in the early 1900’s by Dr. William G. Sutherland, D.O.. Dr. Upledger founded the Upledger Institute in 1985, dedicated to research, education and training. My coursework has extended to Visceral and Neuromeningeal manipulation through the Barral Institute. Dr. Jean Barral, RPT, D.O is also a pioneer and has his own training center.

My private practice was born in May of 2004. In 2007, I was honored to have my associate Anne Schechter, PT join me in this unique approach. She was one of the PT’s who gave that CranioSacral lecture! I have personally enjoyed her treatment sessions and have learned much from her approach. You will see that our Bios are very congruent.

Our practice also includes Lori Jo Siegel, Certified Reiki Master and Certified New York State teacher as a guest practitioner for Multiple Hand treatments. This unique treatment combines the skills of two practitioners. Multiple hand sessions that infuse Cranial and Reiki work result in a profound release of restrictions and restoration of balance. These sessions are available for both children and adults.
