It’s hard to trust that anything will actually relieve back pain.
This works!


Welcome to



Most people who walk through my door have tried at least three methods of relieving back pain. “All the ways I tried weren’t working, but I knew it was possible.” This is probably the line I hear most often. My clients are tired of diligently following tons of advice and still experiencing the limiting physical and emotional impacts of back pain.

And I know this well because I lived it. I tried everything to relieve back pain and avoid surgery. I spent years planning, compensating, and narrowing the focus of my life around back pain. You can read more about my story here.

I also know how inspiring, hopeful, and life-affirming it is to actually experience something that makes a difference. Whether you experience chronic pain, reduced range of motion, inability to do activities you once enjoyed, injuries or effects of aging, you can feel significantly better!
