Treating the Body as a Whole.
Out of many systems. Total body health.
I approach the body as a whole being, not just a part that has been injured.
We are not just one system of bones and muscles. Our bodies have other systems that also require attention in the presence of an injury.
Systems that are often overlooked for treatment include the nervous system from the emotional stress, or nerve injury, the head and brain tissues from motor vehicle accidents and falls, the skin from surgical incisions, the visceral (organ) system from surgery or physical trauma, and the pelvic floor which retains emotional and/or physical traumas.
Starting with a detailed and comprehensive assessment with each client, I personalize treatments to fit each individual's needs for the greatest success in healing.
"When you touch one thing with deep awareness,
you touch everything."
- Lao Tzu
Your initial evaluation will be a comprehensive, diagnostic with an emphasis on you as a whole person and with your goals, pain, and concerns in mind.
I help develop a customized care plan with you and help establish or work with your "healing team" as we focus on getting you
back into your life again.
Physical therapy appointments help you move through your healing period. What the body needs to move forward will change frequently, and your follow up appointments need to change as your body does.
Each treatment is tailored to what your body needs each particular day, on your individual healing timeline.
PELVIC FLOOR THERAPY
Most clients are unaware that some of their pain or imbalances may stem from issues with the pelvic floor.
After our initial evaluation, I may suggest pelvic floor therapy if you are experiencing such issues as persistent low back/tailbone pain, urinary incontinence, digestive issues, pain during intercourse, or lower abdominal pain.
Craniosacral therapy is a light and gentle technique that works with the nervous system. It can decrease injury-related anxiety/depression, decrease the physical and/or emotional stress on the body, increase spinal and joint motion, while decreasing overall pain.
It is a hands-on, non-invasive, gentle technique that addresses restrictions in the joints, the connective tissues, and the nerves of the body.
What Clients Say
I began seeing Margaret several years ago after being diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis. In just a few weeks I felt better, and eventually my symptoms completely disappeared.
She helped me return to a level of health and vitality that I never thought possible.
