Mindful Movement

Move With Intention

How and why I’m different:

I am a manually trained therapist with a hands-on, whole body approach to problem solving pain.

I will evaluate your biomechanics (how your joints move throughout your kinetic chain), movement patterns, and muscle imbalances.

I will provide hands-on one-on-one treatment customized to your needs, education to improve your understanding of your body, and corrective therapeutic exercises that will allow you to heal and strengthen outside of our appointments.

I am also a personal trainer with a specialty in functional strength training. Once you are out of pain, a strength training plan should be followed to ensure proper form and mechanics are maintained.

My Process:

1. Obtain a Prescription

Your doctor or chiropractor must write you a prescription before we can begin therapy.

2. Initial Evaluation

The initial evaluation will be 45-60 minutes. The nature of the diagnosis will determine how often patients are seen. Typically, patients are seen once per week.

3. Therapy Schedule

I will provide a customized therapy routine and schedule.

4. Making Payments

I am a cash-based practice and do not contract with insurance companies. If you would like to submit it to insurance to attempt out-of-network reimbursement, a superbill with the proper CPT codes will be provided upon request. Receipts will be given for submission to cafeteria plans. HAS credit cards typically work with my software.

Frequently Asked Questions

What to Expect

You will need a referral from a physician or chiropractor. You can have the referral faxed to me, or bring it on your first visit.

The first visit will include the initial evaluation, which will last about an hour. You will also have a little paperwork to fill out. I recommend you wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing that you can easily move around in. There will be treatment during the first visit, and you will be given some things to work on prior to the next visit.

Initially I typically see patients once a week. My goal is to give you the tools you need to help yourself. Ideally you will be able to make progress between visits, which, unless your physician recommends otherwise, will lead to less frequent appointments.

    Success Stories

    After suffering with back pain for 15 years, I was desperate when I met Rachael. I had seen many allopathic physicians, chiropractors, and physical therapists, most of them caring and kind individuals. I was given shoe lifts, medication, and exercise regimens, but nothing provided lasting improvement. Over the years, the pain became more unbearable to the point of just accepting that I will have to learn to live with it. That’s when I met Rachael, and she offered to help. Rachael, like the providers before her, was kind and caring. However, what was different was her ability to listen and think through how I described my pain. After a thorough evaluation, she was able to realign my neck and back painlessly and with lasting results. Once my back was in proper alignment, I was able to work with Rachael to strengthen and train my muscles to maintain that alignment. When I’m with Rachael, it is clear that she is always seeking to learn more in order to help her patients. Rachael truly changed my life by allowing me to live free from the burden of back pain, and I believe she has been able to help me and many others because she is a life-long learner, a listener, and a true caregiver.

Hope As A Healer

Mindfulness is a journey.  Those of us who have embarked upon this path are fully aware of this truth.    We all know that the mind is extremely complicated and powerful beyond measure.  Our experiences help to create pathways for everything.  What we already know helps to set a framework for interpretation of information, as do our fears, our hopes, our assumptions, and many other things.  When these pathways stop serving us well, whether it be physical, emotional, relational or spiritual, we suffer.   Physical suffering plays with the mind in a variety of ways.  Some people who come through my door are dealing with an inconvenient pain or discomfort that they are always just a little bit aware of.  Though it might be a “small” pain, it is distracting. It sucks some of their energy, and limits their ability to perform to full potential.  Typically, the restrictions in their kinetic chain are decreasing the efficiency of their movements which depletes […]
