My Purpose

I assist and empower people to feel better, move better, and live better.

Why I'm Different

Experience and Expertise

I have an established and exceptional reputation among  doctors and patients over the last 25 years in the Northwest Corner of Connecticut.  

I use a “hands on” manual approach and an evidenced-based evaluation and treatment. All sessions are one on one without aides or assistants.

I look forward to working collaboratively with a goal of providing you with the education and understanding of your condition and improving the quality of your life.
