I have had a rich and diverse background and journey in the healing arts. It began as a pre-med student who found his passion in natural healing as opposed to a path of prescribing medication and/or surgery. That realization led me away from medical school and to Berkeley, the mecca of holistic healing. My path continued with studying and getting certified in massage therapy over 30 years ago. A confluence of experiences inspired me to attend and get a graduate doctorate degree in chiropractic.
A personal and professional journey for exploring healing in a variety of forms that worked with both mind and body to support the most effective methods to helping patients heal.
A profound understanding of the influence of emotional stress on physical health and recovery from pain and injuries led me to an in depth study of methods that help to reduce the stress load ranging from meditation and breathwork to energy medicine methods like the Emotional Freedom Techniques aka EFT Tapping. I now travel internationally teaching and training health care and mental health care providers in this well researched and evidence based technique.
After three decades of private practice I am in a position to create the practice of my dreams, one that provides simple one on one sessions with the time and space that patients report that they want from their doctors.
I graduated Life Chiropractic College West Summa Cum Laude in 1991. My undergraduate degree is from Lafayette College, 1983 with a Bachelor of Arts/Biology/Pre-Med. Post graduate studies includes spinal rehabilitation, sports medicine, trigger point therapy and more.
My practice now combines a variety of methods that may include any and all of the following:
- Moist hot packs
- Gentle adjustment styles ranging from Diversified manual adjustments, Activator adjusting, drop table techniques, the use of pelvic blocks/wedges, cranial release, strain/counter-strain techniques and more.
- Myofascial/Massage techniques including trigger point release, PNF facilitation
- Rehabilitation including stretching, strengthening and traction.
- Emotional Stress Reduction techniques, ie EFT tapping, Matrix Reimprinting
