As a manual osteopathic practitioner, she specializes in body alignment. Tatiana believes in a holistic and cooperative approach to treatment, believing in the importance of strengthening and balancing a body, mind and spirit. She provides additional recommendations and corrections as home care to clients. She understand that there is not a “one-size-fits-all” method for treatment, and as such, employs a variety of techniques such as: Swedish massage, Muscle Energy Technique, Myofascial Release, trigger point release, manual lymphatic drainage, cupping, craniosacral therapy, body alignment principle and method, and more. She is constantly furthering her knowledge, currently learning Face Yoga Method, a facial fitness technique which helps to maintain and correct face muscle imbalances in a natural way, to preserve natural beauty. She is also continuing to develop her knowledge in post concussion rehabilitation methods through osteopathy.
