Gwen has also added manual therapy to her skill set, to better serve her clientele. The Hendrickson Method® is a unique combination of three techniques designed to bring about optimum results in treating orthopedic conditions: a unique type of Soft Tissue Manipulation developed by Dr. Tom Hendrickson called Wave Mobilization®, Joint Mobilization, and Muscle Energy Technique (MET). The Hendrickson Method® increases joint range of motion, circulation, and lubrication, dissolves adhesions and scar tissue, reduces or removes pain, and can restore optimal orthopedic function. All this, and one of the primary tenets of treatment is that the treatment itself is never painful, and can be deeply relaxing and restorative.

Hendrickson Method® for the Spine includes treatment for the hips and gluteals as these key areas strongly influence the alignment and health of the spine.

Gwen Miller has completed the Hendrickson Method® Training for Manual Therapy for the Spine, Level One, and is offering Hendrickson Method ® for the Spine, Scolio-Pilates®, Therapeutic Yoga for Scoliosis, Clinical Pilates for Back Health, and CHEK Assessments at The Wellness Center of Sonoma County.
