  I focus on Pain and Stress Management as well as Massage Therapy and Body Work.   I am fully Certified and Licensed and insured in the State of Michigan.  I use the  relaxation techniques of Hypnotherapy and Therapeutic  Massage as well as Myofascial Release, CranioSacral Therapy, Positional Release, Heat Therapy (Hot Paraffin Wax) and Hot Stone Massage to ease your pain and discomfort due to illness or injury.   By  combining these modalities of  therapy  you will receive one of  the best  treatments to help with pain relief possible.  Many times pain can be caused or worsened by stress.  When the body  is stressed it  causes Anxiety.  Anxiety can cause more stress and this can cause pain to  become worse and the cycles continues.  Areas of injury become more inflamed and this continues causing even more pain.   Using hypnosis and by me teaching you self  hypnosis, you can learn to relaxed breaking  this  stressful cycle and in most instances reduce your  pain.  Receiving a Therapeutic Massage can relax muscles that are involved in causing the pain as well as relaxing the entire body making it easier  to sleep and get a good nights rest.  By working with your doctor or physical therapist we can help improve the areas that are causing  you  the pain.  Circulation can be improved to the painful  area,  and muscles can be worked to prevent further atrophy.   Along with using hypnotherapy  and the other techniques such as AromaTherapy, you can manage your stress and manage your pain better.    Even just a  relaxing massage will relax you and can help you manage your stress and make you   feel better and sleep better at night.
     
I can also work with you using Hypnosis in Smoking Cessation, Weight and Shape  Management, Fears and Phobias, Stress Release, Subconscious Mind Healing, Grief, and Painless Labor and Childbirth, and many other general issues.
I will  make  a house call for you  and work with you in your own home if requested and this is an added plus for Pain Management patients that are under Hospice care, confined to  bed or the home and can not get out and  travel easily or I will work with you in my home offices near Cadillac MI. and in Harrison Twp.  MI.

Clinical Hypnotherapist and Clinical Massage Therapist

After I retired as a Police Officer of 25 years and having a background and education in Behavioral Medicine, I became certified as a hypnotherapist as a second career. I began to focus on stress and pain management from a mental standpoint. Upon continuing additional education, I realized that Massage Therapy was an outstanding way of helping one to manage pain and stress from a physical standpoint. I continued education and became licensed as a massage therapist as well. I continue with ongoing education taking additional courses of study in CranioSacral Therapy, and Lymphatic Drainage, and have plans to attend a hospital course in the near future for oncology massage.
