INITIAL PHYSICAL THERAPY VISIT
A 90 minute session that includes a thorough health history review, a comprehensive evaluation of structure and function assessing your joints, muscles, connective tissues, visceral organs, energetics, and posture and movement patterns. This investigation is conducted to determine your intention for the therapeutic intervention, and to discover your sources and causes of pain, imbalance, and functional limitations, and their perpetuating factors.
Upon conclusion of the Initial Evaluation I will construct a proposal for treatment and a plan to implement that treatment with consideration of education, postural and ergonomic training, and self-care instruction that may include lifestyle and behavioral parameters, and a home exercise program designed specifically to meet your needs and goals that we have mutually established.
Once your treatment plan is agreed upon, treatment will then be initiated with attention to your specific areas of concern and symptoms. Treatment will be comprised of those modalities and specialized manual therapies determined to be most effective for your care.
Initial Physical Therapy Visit
60 Minute Therapy Session
A follow-up to the Initial Evaluation in which I implement the treatment program we have agreed upon, utilizing many manual therapy skills which I have integrated into a comprehensive treatment modality. Components of this session may include therapeutic massage, neuromuscular release techniques, myofascial release techniques, trigger point dry-needling, application of frequency-specific microcurrent with manual manipulation, visceral manipulation, joint mobilization, and energetic balancing approaches. $100
90 Minute Therapy Session
A follow-up to the Initial Evaluation providing the same content as the 60 minute session, and allowing for more in-depth coverage of specific needs where they have been identified. Often the scope of treatment required and certain specific treatment approaches necessitate a 90 minute session for optimal outcomes to be achieved. It is a privilege to offer this service and its potential benefits in the intimate, caring environment of my one-on-one therapeutic sessions. $135
DRY NEEDLING THERAPY
30 Minute Dry Needling Therapy
This service is only provided for individuals who have previously received an INITIAL PHYSICAL THERAPY EVALUATION and require the specific intervention of only Dry Needling for the elimination of myofascial trigger points on an on-going basis. These are individuals with a record of successful response to dry needling and the desire to periodically engage that therapeutic benefit as need presents in their daily lives. $50

A 90 minute INITIAL MASSAGE THERAPY VISIT is required of all new clients on their first visit to the clinic. The 90 minute Initial Massage Visit includes time for a thorough health history review and opportunity to discuss your specific needs and desires, and therapeutic intention for our time together. Once the direction of your session is established there will be adequate time to provide the indicated manual therapy and massage practices, utilizing the skilled manipulation of my hands, and a compilation of therapeutic approaches to provide relaxation, and the elimination of tension and discomfort from your body. $135
