Sliding scale available for sessions and most classes.
Holistic health practitioner and herbalist.
I have provided an integrated approach to holistic health care since 1981. I primarily use craniosacral therapy, polarity therapy, and massage combined with herbology with an educational focus. I am particularly interested in working with mothers and infants, head injuries and problems, end of life care, and have been very successful with carpal tunnel injuries and supporting life style changes.
I work from home, am a Waste Knot partner (recognized for environmentally sound business practices) and charge on a sliding scale fee. I also teach classes in a wide range of subjects focusing on holistic health care. Some of the classes are available at no charge.
A student of the healing arts since 1973, I am Nationally Certified in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork, have been a Registered Polarity Practitioner, trained in Cranialsacral Therapy with John Upledger, DO and others, completed a two year apprenticeship in herbology with Susun Weed, studied counseling as a paraprofessional in 1973 and was later the director of a counseling service, and more. A more thorough bio is available on-line at www.holisticwisdom.org.
I hold adjunct faculty positions at the UM College of Pharmacy and The Rudolf Steiner High School. I've taught for the Peoples Food Co-op for 15 years, and offered classes on my own for over 25 years. I am a past board member of The National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork.
Past President of The American Polarity Therapy Association and twice past president of the People's Food Co-op Board of Directors. I have been a hospice volunteer for almost 10 years.
