Yoga Instructor: LeeAnn

Following a month long yoga teacher training in 2001, she realized that she could no longer practice in large, nationally owned practices that did not prioritize quality, one on one time with patients. Her experience in these facilities was that it was about volume and not quality and continuity of care. She briefly contemplated leaving the profession because she could not find a practice in the region devoted to providing quality time to each patient.
LeeAnn has become accomplished in providing manual therapy utilizing osteopathic techniques including muscle energy technique, cranial sacral therapy, visceral manipulation, and myofascial release. Her treatment emphasis is on structural alignment, balance, integrity of the body and tapping in to our body’s inherent ability to heal.  She especially enjoys working with patients with spine issues, multiple medical challenges and headaches. She is also a certified Melt Method teacher and Yoga teacher. She utilizes this varied background to establish a comprehensive, effective treatment plan for her patients.
Outside of work, LeeAnn has two daughters 25 and 23 and enjoys spending time outdoors running, kayaking, stand up paddling, rollerblading, cycling and golfing.
