“I have been a therapist for 20 years. My specialty for most of my career has been pediatrics. I am certified in Sensory Integration, in testing and treatment processes. I helped to develop the MPS Therapy Pediatric protocols. I am a Master Pain Practitioner in MPS Therapy and Advanced level instructor.
MPS applies brief, concentrated DC microcurrent impulses to special treatment points that gently relax muscles, calm the nervous system and release endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers.
As a pediatric therapist for children who were on that sensory spectrum somewhere, I understood that my goal as the therapist was to deregulate the sympathetic nervous system, or to bring down the fight or flight stage to where the child could engage in the world and work around them.”
