At CCBT we work as a collaborative team. Once our patients have a diagnosis, their practitioner will design a treatment plan that can be carried out by the patients with the support of our chiropractic and bodywork team. This interdisciplinary team is different for each patient, and the team’s composition may change during treatment to match the patient’s shifting needs. By providing an appropriate treatment plan, our goal is to help patients stay as active as possible at any age. Our broad medical expertise and experience in different treatment modalities allow us to treat ongoing or periodic conditions throughout a patient’s lifetime.
We have Telehealth Services available to provide patient care. Telehealth services allow us to provide care through secure video and telecommunications. Please call the office if you would like to schedule a Telehealth appointment: (734) 677-1900.
My goal is to assist my patients on their journey to a more vibrant and pain-free life. Over my 38 years in practice, I have learned from brilliant teachers, colleagues, and the patients for whom it has been my pleasure to serve. I enter into each encounter with an inquiring mind: what structural, chemical and/or emotional factors are misaligned or out of balance? My treatment tools include flexion-distraction to stretch the spine and discs; applied kinesiology to reveal muscle-organ connections; and active release technique to stretch and restore function to specific muscles. I combine these with chiropractic manipulation using both the activator tool and hands-on care. It would be my pleasure to be part of your health care team!
I draw from a variety of approaches to give you thorough, thoughtful care in a safe, supportive environment. My work is eclectic. In concert with you, I may choose from traditional manual or low-force Activator instrument adjustments, soft tissue work, energy work including Reiki, CranioSacral therapy, and trauma healing / somatic release work, including grounding. Reiki, Trauma Healing and CranioSacral therapy may be incorporated into a chiropractic session, or for more in-depth work, may be booked as separate 1-hour sessions. I address diet, nutrition, sleep, stress, ergonomics, and other life style considerations.
Having over twelve years of experience, it is a true gift to be a massage therapy healer and be able to use my gift to help others achieve their health goals. My massage technique can be described as a firm touch that addresses the concerns of the patient while allowing the body to reach a level of relaxation in order to heal. Throughout my practice, I’ve had the opportunity to learn many modalities which include Swedish massage, trigger point therapy, and myofascial release. I have also had the opportunity to study oncology/hospital massage through Beaumont Hospital where I’ve been taught to safely treat clients going through different stages of cancer treatment.
For me, there is no greater joy than providing healing touch in the form of massage therapy and Reiki therapy. My training at Irene’s Myomassology Institute prepared me to offer a variety of techniques including neuromuscular therapy, reflexology, Swedish, and deep tissue massage. My previous experience in working with a group of chiropractors in the Canton, Michigan area deepened my ability to assist in helping patients manage acute and chronic pain. And going deeper into the study of energy healing led me to become a Reiki practitioner. By using my intuition, my anatomy knowledge and compassionate listening skills, I will seek to work with you to develop centering, relaxation and deep healing in a safe environment.
