“If you are like most people, then you tend to take on more in life than what the body and psyche prefer. Stress has different ways it manifests in the body; be it for example physical pain, digestive issues, or emotional upset and disease.

In my practice, I aim to interject in these chronic cycles by addressing the different aspects of dis-ease at hand, as one condition is rarely a stand-alone phenomenon.
