Health & Lifestyle Counseling
- Breathing & Relaxation Exercises
When we are under stress our breath
becomes shallow and irregular. This
has a negative affect on all our body
systems. Breathing slowly and deeply
slows the heart rate, reduces blood
pressure, increases oxygen flow to the
brain, relaxes muscles, reduces anxiety
and triggers the release of relaxation
The breathing and relaxation exercises I teach are simple and can be done
anytime and anywhere. You will feel better instantly after doing as little as 5
minutes of doing one of these exercises.
- Postural Assessment & Exercise Instruction
Postural imbalances lead to pain and discomfort. A postural assessment will
help you understand your weaknesses and correct them with simple exercises
and ergonomic changes.
My training as an orthopedic therapist and my years of doing martial arts and
many other sports have given me a lot of knowledge and experience in both
prevention and care of injuries.
- Hydrotherapy for Common Ailments
Hydrotherapy, the use of water, ice,cold and warm moist heat is very
under-used in the US. Hydrotherapy has well-established history and use in
Europe. I was raised using the principles of hydrotherapy to care for a wide
array of ailments. Coughs, colds, flues, musculoskeletal problems like muscle
tension, sprains and strains, immune system issues, blood pressure and
circulation problems, insomnia and depression, as well as menstrual cramps
and headaches all can successfully be addressed with hydrotherapy.
