After working in a variety of clinical environments, Donna’s passion led her to work with chronic pain patients.

She has worked closely with a multidisciplinary approach alongside nuerology, pain management and anesthesiolgy, psychology, physiatry, massage therapy and acupuncture. Donna draws on her training in myofascial release, craniosacral techniques, and energy work to compliment her orthopedic skills.

Furthermore, Donna has studied advanced bio-energy techniques. In addition, she has also studied segmental myofascial release and myofascial stretching.

Donna incorporates her myofascial release and orthopedic skills to assist in wellness programs. She has been a physical therapist at the U.S. Tennis Open for over 10 years working one-on-one with top ranked tennis players.
