In Arlene’s own words:
I started out earning a degree in Psychology and Elementary Education degree from SUNY Stony Brook in 1974. I then went on to get her Occupational Therapy degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1977. I worked for many years in traditional settings such as school systems, hospitals and out patient clinics. Working with neonates to 99 year olds in the areas of both biomechanical and neurological dysfunction became her interest at first. I have expanded into working with individual nutritional needs and physiological detox. I look at the whole individual and what is affecting their progress toward health.
In my own journey I found that traditional methods were limiting. My own health issues, including back pain and women’s health issues led me on a search for other solutions. Integrative Manual Therapy is one of my primary tools. I studied and I am Certified IMT,C. therapist for the last 20 years. This therapy has helped me heal tissues and prevent surgery. Always looking for more answers has been my quest. Adding other practices such as Cranial sacral Therapy, Process Acupressure, Zero Balancing and Myofascial Release has helped my own growth and development, as well as my clients’ healing process. A Nutrition degree has also enhanced my practice and speeds up the clients healing with individualized supplement programs.
When I had been introduced to Core Individuation and immediately knew that this was a deeper way of helping my clients heal. Over my years of working with people and the body I have learned that we are not just a physical body. Our physical issues may be due to emotional trauma and our environment. CI helps us release these traumas without reliving the trauma. It is a beautiful and intricate as our physical body. It helps align the body and move us from pain and discomfort to healing and beyond.
My strength is that I can determine what each person needs for their healing. Through my years of working with the body I can feel what is beneficial for ones healing. I listen to the body and my techniques are gentle and allows the body and whole person move towards alignment.
Healthy, non-invasive techniques are the goal for treating anything that takes us out of homeostasis. My goal is to keep searching, growing and going deeper into the healing arts and sciences. Helping my clients heal and come back to a more flexible and vibrant state of health is my passion. Please contact me. I would love to be part of your healing journey.
