Testimonial
The experience we've had with Kerry is unlike any other. The only thing more impressive than her exceptional expertise in pediatric therapy, myofasical release and craniosacral therapy, is her beautiful way with children. She has a gift that is difficult to describe in words, but that is so evident when she is interacting with her patients. She genuinely enjoys what she does, and is acutely aware of the well being of our son at every single visit. As a parent, there is nothing more reassuring than to have him in her care. She continually goes beyond what is expected and conducts her therapy sessions with compassion and commitment.

Our son is being treated for torticollis. Throughout his treatment, Kerry has provided us positive guidance and invaluable education. She provides a safe, fun environment for my son to challenge his abilities and improve his limitations. Kerry is a true expert in her field. We are incredibly grateful for the care she has given to him, and for the support and guidance she has given to us.
