While stress can be a big driver of disease, we know today that sleep, exercise, diet, nutrition and socializing play a huge role in our health in addition to our environmental exposures. Add to that some chronic pain, digestive issues, traumatic injury, headaches or heel pain, and seeking help in the current medical model can be challenging.
Read has so many tools to utilize to bring one’s body back toward wellness. Her skills include: craniosacral therapy, visceral manipulation, lymphatic drainage, dry needling, total motion release, pain neutralizing technique, hot stone myofascial release, deep dry needling, private exercise prescription and more. Clients have reported improvements in hearing, vision, alignment of teeth and TMJ, pain relief, improved sleep, improved swallow, improved digestion, improved bladder control, reduction in PTSD and more.
Read is continuing to study functional nutrition and is a certified Wahls practitioner. She has recently spent extra time studying the importance of the microbiome of the body and its very important roles to activate the immune system and contribute to our overall health.
