PERSONAL STATEMENT

I am an internationally recognized practitioner, author, lecturer, and instructor who consults with and treats patients from around the world.

In 1989, I walked away from a steady paycheck as an 11-year hospital administrator in the corporate-based sick-care system. I had been deeply conflicted about what I was being forced to support and sign my name to in the name of quality care. I then began my search for a more eclectic and effective set of physical-therapy treatment protocols that would be individualized to fit the specific needs of each patient.

I have now amassed well over 1,000 hours of additional clinical education in a variety of therapeutic techniques.

The approach I have evolved is to use the most effective techniques available in the category of non-manipulative manual therapy. These evidence-based techniques, along with cutting-edge neurological protocols, can finally bring about an actual cure for the vast majority of musculoskeletal-dysfunction and chronic-pain scenarios. They are performed without drugs, surgery, or manipulation of the body.
