In her 26 year career as a nurse, Abigail gained experience in several fields: emergency, accident and orthopedics, family medicine, gerontology to name a few. In 1993, following a series of automobile accidents in which she suffered severe whiplash, she was forced to re-evaluate her understanding of injury and trauma and their effects upon the body/mind/spirit continuum. The impact was profound and provided the impetus for her ongoing voyage of discovery in healing.
Combining her traditional medical background with studies in osteopathy, neuromuscular therapy, cranio-sacral therapy, process acupressure and natural health therapies, Abigail is able to effectively treat a broad range of injuries and traumas.
