Traditional Osteopathy and IFS (Internal Family Systems) Therapy 

Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS)

IFS is a type of psychotherapy that can address emotional contributors of pain and possibly disease. In the most compassionate manner it can change negative thought or emotional patterns that result in reactive behaviors, aggressive or withdrawn postures, and disease symptoms that seem to cause harm. Ask about it!
