Chris has specialized in treatment of complex chronic pain and stress disorders for many years and finds Oriental Medicine offers a unique way to address the many aspects of ill health simultaneously. It helps the person to regain a sense of trust in their body and brings about healing by engaging the mind/body connection.
She has an extensive background in orthopedics and rehabilitation medicine and has found treating the unhealthy emotions that often accompany long term injury or ill health is as important as treating the problem that generated them in the initially. Giving people a safe space and time to process their experience is important in the healing process. Today's life, both in and out of the traditional medical setting rarely allows for that critical time of reflection and processing that is integral to the healing process.
She also has special expertise in the management of hand , wrist and upper extremity injuries both acute and chronic, including RSD, chronic painful wrist and thumb diagnoses like arthritis, tendinitis and carpal tunnel syndrome.
Chris uses both Eastern and Western treatment methods including: Traditional Chinese acupuncture modalities, Chinese herbology and nutritional medicine, Qi Gong, homeopathy, laser therapy, and when needed western rehabilitation modalities, including custom splinting.
