Betsy is a Pain Specialist and Lifestyle Educator who can get your “hurting” body back into shape with non-invasive tools and techniques. A practicing Certified Bonnie Prudden Myotherapist for 27 years Betsy relieves muscle tension and tightness by applying direct pressure to your muscles, fascia and tendons with her hands and elbows. This allows active trigger points to stop their contraction of surrounding tissue making for looser muscles that have full range of motion. Trigger points cause 95% of muscle related pain and cause the symptoms of inflammation, tingling and numbness, pain, and swelling. Once the muscles are relaxed the trigger points are kept away with corrective exercises/movements that are done by the patient. Myotherapy is a highly effective technique that anyone can learn to do on themselves with instruction and specialized tools!
Lastly Betsy offers simple exercise programs for individuals who are having muscle related back pain or pain anywhere in the body. Once you know which muscles are weak and imbalanced in your body you can change the dynamics of body structure, strength and function within weeks to eliminate your pain. Betsy also does a workshop related to this work called “Keeping Physically Fit with Simple Strategies”.
