Biography

When I entered the profession of physical therapy, I was already in my late 30's.  I had done some living.  In Boston, I studied massage and body work. In theater school, I studied movement and developed a deeper awareness of the importance of posture.  

When I became a physical therapist, I served as director of PT for a subacute rehab facility and went into peoples' homes, addressing safety and strength issues with seniors trying to maintain their independence.

The trajectory of my career changed in 2010 when a a well-known pain doctor asked me to set work in his office treating his clients.  Many were prescribed opiates, some received regular spinal injections. others utilized implanted stimulators. 

The more clients I saw saw, the more I realized we shared a common goal: to reduce their dependence on these drugs and devices.

This is the foundation for my practice, to use hands-on techniques to release the grip of soft tissue on the wrong structures and allow the body to move more freely and with less pain.

Easing Pain with Physical Therapy – Marsha's Story

- 2023, Publication Title -

When Marsha moved to Buffalo she looked for a

practitioner to help ease her pain. Originally from

New York City, she had undergone myofascial release, a hands-on technique to reduce pain and increase mobility. Marsha said she was looking for a practitioner in Buffalo that could perform the therapy successfully to ease her pain.

Not Your Average Physical
Therapy Protocol

 Joseph L. of Williamsville limped into my office, his cane digging into the carpet with each step. Sitting down in my armchair required him to kick one leg forward and twist his body to sit on his right buttock. Joe was no stranger to physical therapy, having visited different practices over the eight years since his first back surgery. Joe didn’t hide his distrust, believing I would implement a similar routine involving exercises, possibly some massage, and modalities like heat or cold and electric stimulation.
