How We Can Help You

Using applied neuroscience including Associative Awareness Techniques we provide you with understanding of the underlying causes of acute and chronic physical symptoms.  We provide education and insight regarding  how past trauma and adverse  life events affect the brain (central nervous system) to generate unwelcome physical symptoms in the body.  In addition to offering strategies for  symptom management we teach our clients  how to give  healing inputs to their brain from which the disturbances in the body  arise. Your brain can learn new patterns and responses and YOU CAN HEAL.

Utilizing  techniques personalized for you, we work to create balance within your nervous system producing an environment within your body where healing and a better quality of life can occur. We believe that you deserve to both feel well and be well.

We Make A Difference

We help you to  comprehend and appreciate that  your brain is  the "commander in chief of your body".  We understand  how your brain reacts during trauma, injury and sustained stress. We have knowledge about  the development of emotional associations such as fear, anger, helplessness, frustration and sadness in relationship  to your  chronic condition.

Recurring  inputs to the brain and resultant repeat brain patterns  account  for the symptom patterns that you suffer from.  WE CAN HELP!

Knowledge  of the brain/body connection along with use of  easily applied tools allows for resolve of  unwelcome and often debilitating physical symptoms to  create healing and overall wellness. 

Traditional therapy used in tandem with Associative Awareness Techniques offers powerful healing and restoration for your body.

Education for Brain/Body Awareness

You will learn how Chronic Conditions begin and end in the Human Brain. The Human Brain is a super computer. Your Brain (Central Nervous System) provides instructions for every function that occurs inside your body. Your Body is in constant communication with your brain, every second of your life. Your brain receives and analyzes a staggering amount of information each moment. Your brain provides specific instructions to every tissue, organ and system within your body. All of your life experiences are processed in the brain and impact your body.  

Your Body is NOT the CAUSE of your condition!

In the Central Nervous System, protective responses are ignited during times of sustained  stress, injury or trauma. Muscle tension is one such response. 

Many of you with chronic conditions suffer from persistent tension to your shoulders, neck, head and back despite having had  treatments like physical therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, and  massage.....

Treatment causes you to feel pretty good... for awhile. Then, the symptoms come back. Why?  If the muscle is the problem, and you treat the muscle... why do your symptoms return? 

Because the muscle is NOT the problem. Your muscles are simply responding to instructions being sent by your brain. For those of you caught in this protective cycle,  your symptom patterns return no matter what you try because your brain continues to send instructions of protection throughout your body.

Through physical therapy you can receive education and awareness that will allow you to find lasting resolve of your symptoms.
