Patricia's approach to treatment is to maximize optimum health through correcting dysfunction in the body and allowing the well being of the individual to emerge.

"My focus is to bring the whole body into balance,
unblocking areas of the body where mobility and fluid flow are not functioning optimally.
Molding tissues to create a better structure and function with the craniosacral system is my primary focus."

Using an intuitive approach, I look at massage therapy as treating the body as a whole,

back to its primary function and encouraging deep relaxation.
