I provide integrative myotherapy. This medical service is clinical musculoskeletal rehabilitation therapy.
Whether your pain is caused by trauma to the body, injury, repetitive use, rehearsing the piano, violin, cello, general soft tissue dysfunction, post-surgical obstruction within the tissues, sitting long hours at a computer, traveling, training for a marathon, competitive swimming or baseball, Olympic weightlifting, gymnastics or simply sleeping in an unfortunate position, I am optimistic that over 53 years of hands-on experience (23 years of private clinical practice, investigation and research) has qualified me to send you off educated, confident, feeling better, and happy that you made the appointment. Besides, your only alternative is physical therapy (12 or 18 weeks of academic therapeutic sessions billed at $300 and paid for by your insurance). My clients have been through PT and found no lasting relief. That said, there a a few manual physical therapists who are doing honest hard work but are paying the physical price in pain for their efforts because it takes such tremendous strength to do this specific work all day every day. Theu come to me to help them find relief.
But, now you know why the honorable profession of Myopathy does not exist. If a health career is based on patients returning several time$$ weekly, what profession is going to heal them in one or two sessions? This is the business model based on religion and pharmaceutical medicine... sell them a product they HAVE TO BUY to find salvation or relief, don't give them the keys to the kingdom, relief from ther pain that they can handle without you or give them an option not to have surgery, injections, chiropractic or physical therapy!!!
During our brief intake time within the 60 minute session, we will solve the dilemma of just how you acquired this musculoskeletal/joint pain. After treatment, you may have stretches assigned to you to assist in your recovery and homework for the prevention of this same debilitating condition in the future.
My goal is NOT to keep you coming back, it is to send you away renewed, educated, transformed and amazed that a master practitioner is accessible and affordable. As a NYS licensed therapist, I honed my specialized skills in the 1990's directly on Broadway's finest dancers and principal actors to getting them back on stage during that performance. By the mid-90's I was the premier therapist out of four attending the dancers, actors and singers from every musical on Broadway.
I will get you back to your normal daily activities as quickly as possible. A session consists of intake about what happened, the history, and insights you have regarding your condition, hands on medical therapy with moist heat, and therapeutic stretches. I have either organic nut free, paraben free, gluten free, fragrance free Sacred Earth oil. I also have Naked Bee fragranced creams. You choose. Everything is clean, orderly and, for those of you who truly believe you are allergic to everything, then you will be right about it once again and you get to stay exactly where you are. But no one has ever, in 23 years, been allergic to anything within my office clinic space. Amen. Come here and get on with your pain free or "pain is much less now" lifestyle. Please give me the honor and priviledge to be right about your muscles this time.
My service is not covered by health insurance. I always tell my clients sitting in front of me, I don't want to hear the medical diagnosis, nor what they did about it. If they knew what they were doing it would have worked, so why would you be sitting here in my cozy apartment paying me $120 out of pocket?
