I am usually behind the camera and my first selfie ever is in this slide show.
Working as a certified/licensed athletic trainer early in my career, I was privileged to witness and be trusted by athletes and physically active individuals to immediately care for their injury and rehabilitate them to full recovery. The blessing of earning 3 degrees, finishing with my PhD in Health and Rehabilitation Sciences in 2003, allowed me to practice and teach the biomechanical paradigm in orthopedic health care and provided me great insight into the medical model and research worlds. As a life long learner, I enjoy continuing to expand my knowledge and perspectives on the human body and nature. Struggling with health issues is what led me to become a Certified Bowenwork® Practitioner in 2018 as it provided me with the healing I needed to recover from GI issues. Practicing Bowenwork® has further opened my mind and lead me to studying fascia and the biotensegrity paradigm of the human body, which treats the body in its wholeness. I continued that learning journey of the connective tissue system and am currently studying craniosacral therapy and completed a mentorship with MovementREV and finishing 2 year education with Tensegrity Medicine. I also anticipate continuing learning other like-minded practices. By combining all of this information from the past and present, I am excited to offer these perspectives to help you not only to organize your structure to optimize function and navigate health but also to help you understand the connection between the body and mind and the world we live in.
Lucia is the female, Italian/Latin/Spanish name for light. Health is the absence of disease.
Through an osteopathic and biotensegral lens, Lucia Health will help you shine your light on the self-healing and self-regulating innate wisdom of the body to guide you back to health. You are unique as a snowflake and deserve an individualized approach to the body and mind in order to return to wholeness. I look forward to meeting you and helping you along your healing journey.
