Inviting the body to change - can change a life
Creating Positive, Invited Changes
The Whole Child Associates incorporates traditional occupational therapy philosophies and methodologies with alternative bodywork which includes Integrative Manual Therapy (IMT) and CranioSacral Therapy (CST). I am dedicated to my clients and provide a service that meets the client and family where they are and work toward their goals, which become our common goals.
The principles of my work consider reading the client's body, considering all of the systems of the body (such as the cardiovascular system, respiratory system, cranial-sacral system, fascial system, GI system, neurological system, and lymph system) to offer resources and invite change.
We work with parents to customize what your child or with the client's other referral therapist to compliment one another's protocols

The Whole Child Associates incorporates traditional occupational therapy philosophies and methodologies with alternative bodywork which includes Integrative Manual Therapy (IMT) and CranioSacral Therapy (CST).
IMT, CST, and Upledger Institute training are gentle, hands-on therapeutic interventions that consider all the systems of the body: nervous system, skeletal system, respiratory system, cardiovascular system, craniosacral system, lymph system, digestive/ gastro-intestinal system, and fascial system. These techniques promote structural and postural changes and healing. Creating positive, invited changes in the body, and integrating optimal function.
Listening and inviting the body to change through this approach promotes long term changes. Incorporating the extensive understanding of human development with this unique hands-on approach is being recognized by my accomplished colleagues and families that have experienced other approaches.
"Only few months ago we feared our 2 year old might be autistic. Today, we can chat away with our very hardworking son, who is improving with behavior, motor skills, and can now do a variety of his age appropriate tasks. Janet always so creatively found clues in his response and behavior to adjust the type of task, type of exercise, adjust the massage, in effect creating such customized personal therapy for him. Communication with Janet was fantastic and we felt our son got the best specialized care under the sun he so needed."
