About the Author

I have been an occupational therapist for over 40 years.  

I have held clinical and management positions in 4 different states, always trying to help people with my hands.  First with therapeutic handling of patients with neurologic conditions, then trigger point work for patients with persistent musculoskeletal pain.  

When I received training in myofascial release, my results improved greatly.  For a few years I had the opportunity to teach, and teaching kinesiology really brought back to me strongly that sense of how the parts of the body work together.  

When I started my private practice in 2010, myofascial release was the cornerstone.  

This book is the result of reflecting on the experiences of these past years.  Soon I will retire in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.  I hope this book brings you the pleasure and success of helping people with your hands.
