Throughout the course of your treatment, you will be able to integrate this knowledge by learning how you can help your body over the course of your treatment and to prevent or slow down future injury.

Since her training is rooted in manual therapy, you can expect your treatment sessions to have a hands-on component followed by exercise. She strongly encourages her clients to follow the exercise recommendations she provides as it helps to improve the effectiveness of the hands on treatment.
