Qualifications: LMT, NCBTMB and FL CE provider, Advanced Practitioner, Advanced Instructor, Basic and Advanced Instructor Trainer,
Teaching Subjects: All the classes: I love teaching Phase 4, Self Care, Phase 5 and Phase 6, Posture, Isometrics, Chapman's Reflexes, Pelvic Stabilization, Cranial, Advanced Chapman's, Carpal tunnel Syndrome, and Ethics and Emotions. I am also completing my Instructor training in Bones for Life.
Philosophy: During the past thirty years I have worked with thousands of people in pain in my Ortho-Bionomy private practice, and have developed release techniques for carpal tunnel syndrome and neuritis conditions of the arm and shoulder. In Self Care Seminars I observe the empowering results and the effectiveness of educating individuals to attune to comfort and to apply the principles and techniques of Ortho-Bionomy for pain relief. With a respectful, playful and empowering approach, I enjoy teaching and encouraging self-discovery to enhance the quality of one's life.
Biography: My interest in Ortho-Bionomy Self Care began in response to my own injuries and near death experience following a motorcycle accident. Undergraduate studies in Pre-Med and a BA degree in psychology with a minor in education from UCLA in 1970 drew me to study modalities that not only could effectively relieve pain, but also would respect individual differences and address the mind / body connection. Currently, I am licensed as a massage therapist in Florida and am certified as a continuing education provider with the State of Florida and with the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB). I teach over thirty courses a year in the US and Australia, and throughout the years have taught Ortho-Bionomy courses in Japan, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, New Zealand and Jamaica. I train instructors, mentor practitioners, and write articles for newsletters in the United States, Australia, and New Zealand. The July 2008 issue of Massage Magazine ran my article on Ortho-Bionomy.

Class Description: This class provides a forum for discussion of the practical and legal aspects of professional conduct and practitioner ethics in regards to physical, emotional, and energetic boundaries, clear communication, and client and practitioner expectations. Participants will clarify personal values concerning their work philosophy, and define their scope of practice. We will also discuss techniques designed to contain and guide emotional release and expression so the practitioner and the client are both comfortable and safe.
