Mary graduated from St. Louis University in 1981 with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Physical Therapy. Her work experience started with almost 8 years of Sport and Orthopedic medicine and the last 11 years in private practice specializing in Myofascial Release and Cranial-Sacral therapy. She was trained in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Sedona, Arizona directly under the tutelage of John Barnes, PT., founder of Myofascial Release therapy.
"I've experienced chronic pain. My own 10+ years of chronic migraines, fatigue and anxiety took me to numerous physicians and specialists. I was put through all kinds of scans, tests, and evaluations only to be passed on to the next specialist. Eventually, I found my own way out and part of that was with Myofascial Release. It has been a true joy to accompany our clients as they regain their own health and peace of mind."
If Mary's not at the clinic, she is enjoying her family and home or watching the baseball Cardinals.
