Bonnijane Black Monson, DPT

I focus on treating and working the whole person. I have been traditionally trained and worked in pelvic health PT for a decade. As a result of seeing commonalities in physical and psychosocial symptoms of those experiencing chronic pain I realized I needed to understand more. I have been certified in Cellular Release Therapy, a very powerful form of hypnotherapy that focuses on ridding the body and mind from the effects of trauma. I have also been trained in Proprioceptive-Deep Tendon Reflex (P-DTR). P-DTR is a neurological, reflexogenic system, which efficiently treats a wide spectrum of functional problems and solves musculoskeletal, gastrointestinal, hormonal, chemical and emotional dysfunctions.  
With this combination I am able to help treat the whole person.
