What if I told you that your shoulder pain is caused by your diet?
Or that your thyroid issue is actually caused by Lymes disease?
Or that your neck pain is rooted in childhood trauma?
What if I told you that looking at the bigger picture is what allows me to zoom in on what’s actually wrong?
To be honest, I didn’t quite get the connections at first either. It wasn’t until I busted my knee on a ski lift and couldn’t recover that I really started to think beyond the injury. I went to doctors, I tried physical therapy, but the only “hope” presented to me was in the form of medication.
To me, living a life where I was dependent on medicine to be pain-free wasn’t going to cut it. I knew there had to be a way to HEAL my knee from within so I could get back to living the life I loved.
Just like you, I started to think outside the box and began looking into Eastern Medicine as a complement to Western practices. That’s when I decided to attend the Integrative Medicine Program at Harvard to build on my degree in Osteopathic Medicine.
I began using a combination of treatments from TCM to yoga to herbal supplements and access bars. (It’s okay if you don’t know what those methods are. When we work together I will walk you through all of your options.) Because only by using a variety of healing modalities - and looking at my injury from the inside out - did the pain finally stop. And that’s the kind of results I want to bring to YOU.
The Healing Station is more than a private practice. It’s a place for patients to not just get “treated,” but to actually heal.
My love for osteopathy runs deep. For years, I thought I had bad genes because diabetes, heart problems, all kinds of cancers, anxiety, depression, high cholesterol and high blood pressure run in my family. Taking care of my ill grandmother as a child, I wanted so badly to help her heal. I also wanted to create a life where my genetics didn’t control my destiny. What I learned is that you don’t have to be a product of your genes, you can take your health destiny into your own hands, and I want to show you how.
When we work together, I look at the full picture of your health so true holistic healing can occur. I share my experience and knowledge to help you have a happier, healthier life - free of pain, excess weight and anything else you feel is holding you back. Healing Station patients benefit from a variety of treatment techniques and leave feeling better than ever - physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
I truly believe that -
- You can heal your body. Contrary to what other doctors may have told you, it is possible. It may just take an alternative approach or two.
- Good food nourishes the body and soul, so using diet as an approach to healing is one of the most powerful tools in your arsenal.
- You will see your energy levels improve, your hormones stabilize and your pain decrease when you finally apply the right combination of healing techniques.
- Just because your family members are sick, doesn’t mean you have to be. Turning your genes off is possible and I will teach you how.
Suffering silently is a huge emotional burden to bear. We are taught to “suck it up” and “stop complaining” but by looking at each symptom we can (and will) figure out exactly what’s going on and how to fix it. Years ago, I had Lymes Disease and was suffering from joint pain, belly bloat, palpitations and heightened gluten and dairy intolerances and I’ll be honest with you, it was making me depressed. To overcome it I had to use a variety of methods. It’s like trying different tools in the toolbox- together, we will find the right combination of tools to heal YOUR ailments and get you feeling better than ever.
I’m not here for quick fixes (though most of my patients see improvements after our first session). I’m here to get to know you and your body. I’m here to work with you to figure out exactly what’s going and get you feeling better for the long term.
Because life is too short to spend it in pain.
My patients often wish they came to me sooner. Let’s get you healing ASAP!
