What is your specialization and why did you choose to work in this area?
I specialize in Holistic Physical Therapy, Integrative Manual Therapy (IMT) and wellness, including supporting individuals and families in transitioning into a more natural living with healthier eating habits and cleaner lifestyle.
Tell us about your practice and specialty and which patients should see you.
My PhD work is in the field of neuro-pediatrics and my doctoral dissertation focused on alternative therapies for individuals with autism and other learning and socialization challenges. In addition to working with children and families, I have worked for many years with children and adults with acute and chronic pain, allergies and autoimmune issues, gut-related challenges, and sports-related injuries.
What keeps patients from trying an integrative or functional health approach?
I have found that the terrain is friendlier these days to alternative options and there are many more people using alternative therapies today. Some barriers would include cost that is most certainly a reality today with our current economy.
What do your patients remark upon most after their first visit? What keeps someone returning?
Using Integrative Manual Therapy and Holistic Physical Therapy in our clinic, we look for underlying issues. By treating these underlying problems, we are able to achieve more long-lasting sustainable results. In addition, we try to ‘meet people where they are at’. This means that regardless what knowledge the person has in natural or holistic health, we work with the person in educating them on strategies for gaining better health. We spend a lot of time with our clients educating them on how to live healthy.
What is your level of support for health insurance and claims?
At Integrative Wellness & Physical Therapy, we accept Anthem BCBS and Connecticare as in-network Physical Therapy. We also accept Medicare. For other insurance companies, we are considered out-of-network Physical Therapy.
