Angela’s training and experience in Neurosomatic Therapy is founded in an individualized approach to her patient’s anatomical and physiological dysfunction. This approach allows her to focus corrective, soft-tissue treatment at the source of each patient’s dysfunction that is causing his or her symptom of pain.
Angela’s experience treating current and former NFL, MLB, NBA athletes and world-class triathletes fueled her passion to differentiate “rest” and “recovery” days to elite athletes. She educates her athletes on the importance of using Neurosomatic Therapy as a form of Active Recovery to match the physical demands athletes put on their body. Angela’s treatment of collegiate, high school and middle school elite athletes is founded in educating these athletes on how to care for and maintain their bodies to reach their maximum athletic potential.
Angela's training also includes Level 1 & 2 Thai Yoga Massage and a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Certification, which she uses to equip her patients to help maintain the corrective Neurosomatic Therapy treatments she provides.
The Search For Relief & Changing Paths
Angela says she was drawn to Neurosomatic Therapy when she was searching for answers to her son's chronic back and neck pain. She exhausted all traditional medical treatments from doctors, physical therapists, back specialists, orthopedic surgeons and chiropractors to relieve her son's constant back and neck pain and scoliosis. Years later, she was told nothing else could be done for her son and that he'd have to learn to live with pain. Frustrated with that prognosis, Angela did one more online search for help and was directed to The Center for Neurosomatic Studies (CNS) and The St John-Clark Pain Treatment Center (SJCPTC).
Angela scheduled her son's first appointment without knowing the life-changing impact Neurosomatic Therapy would have on his life. For the first time, she and her son were given answers from a full-body assessment, hope that her son would get better and relief as her son's scoliosis improved and his pain went away!
Seeing these remarkable changes in her own son, Angela abandoned her Masters of Art Therapy education to become a Neurosomatic Therapist. The journey to change the lives of people suffering with unresolved pain and dysfunction, just as her son's life was changed, was challenging, rewarding and definitely the right career path!
