Her primary focus in her practice is Counterstrain (, and she also offers naturopathic primary care, acupuncture, prolotherapy, intravenous nutrient therapy and custom orthotics. “Of all the modalities I’ve been exposed to in my career, Counterstrain is the most evolved and astoundingly powerful. Counterstrain is based in science and applied anatomy, and through it, we are able to reach inside the body and restore function with very little effort. One patient described it as ‘invisible surgery’ - an apt description for this outstanding technique.” - Holly Christy
