Your initial consult and session will consist of your therapist reviewing and discussing your history and questionnaire forms as he explains to you what will go on and what you may experience during your session. Unified Therapy™ is designed to adapt to and accommodate your specific condition.
Multiple techniques may be used in a session:
“Everyone is under pressure or stress of some kind or another and we all have both internal and external reactions to these pressures and then physical symptoms manifest in response to these feelings.”

~ The Approach ~
Unified Therapy™ is a safe, gentle, body~mind~brain treatment approach that addresses the etiology of conditions rather than simply managing and treating symptoms.
Unified Therapy™ treatments are unique, highly interactive and take place in a chair or on a padded treatment table. The client is clothed and in a supportive, healing environment that respects protective boundaries. Sessions are customized to fit whatever you need on the day you come in for treatment.
A variety of techniques are used during a session and can be integrated with and complements other healing therapy treatments including psychotherapy, chiropractic and acupuncture.
