Words from Larissa

“I take great pride in my work as a wellness practitioner. I believe two of my greatest strengths are the ability to be both compassionate and caring in my treatment of others both in my professional work and personal life – it is very humbling.

I love working with children and with people of all ages and backgrounds and it is a passion of mine to work with clearing emotional blockages to assist patients in living their lives to their full potential. My work includes emotional balancing, hormonal and nutritional balancing, biochemical problems, spinal and cranial dysfunction and common aches and pains.

Every patient is unique and deserves to be treated as such. I run long appointments, which allows me to take my time with you, finding your key blocks and prioritize what you need to feel and function at your best.

I am constantly learning and further developing my skills to provide holistic healing that achieve the best treatment outcomes for my patients.

I believe wellness is a journey to achieving balance in life, and it is a privilege to be a part of my patients’ lives to help them along their journeys to achieve their highest potential and complete balance. “
