Congestive Lymphedema Therapy

Kinesio Taping
Medical or Therapeutic Massage Therapy
Medi Cupping
Myofascial Release Therapy
Precision Neuromuscular Therapy
Positional Release Therapy
Raindrop Therapy and Aromatherapy

Katherine de Shazer, LMT, CLT, is  Board Certified by the National Certification Board for Massage Therapy and licensed by the State of Wisconsin. As a graduate of Blue Sky Professional School of Massage and Bodywork specializing in Medical Therapeutic Massage, Katherine’s work integrates several massage modalities based on an individual’s needs into a session. Continuing education certifications focus on cancer, mastectomy therapy, congestive lymphedema and outcome-based therapies.  Her commitment to assisting people making changes and taking charge of their health life is evident in her style of massage which increases body awareness and movement, reduces stress, improves the immune system, promotes relaxation, and reduces tension.


Cancer, Mastectomy, and Lymphedema Therapy—
Massage and bodywork cannot cure cancer but it can offer greatly needed relief and enhance quality of life and make a significant contribution to your healing process. Katherine employs many different massage modalities including Congestive Lymphedema Therapy, to safely nurture the body, mind, and spirit of anyone dealing with cancer.

Therapy helps:

Reduce Scar Tissue
Increase Range of Motion and Mobility
Manage lymphedema
Relieve Pain
Reduce Stress
Provide Relaxation and Comfort
Minimize Side Effects of Chemotherapy and Radiation
Boost Immune System
Assist in Lymph, Blood, and Oxygen Flow
Remove Toxins from Body without Liver Overload
Decrease Fatigue

Cranio Sacral Therapy—
Cranial Sacral or Cranio Sacral Therapy (CST) is a hands-on healing practice that works with the central nervous system. Widely used by osteopaths, chiropractors, naturopaths, physiotherapists and massage therapists a light manual touch placed on the body helps to release restricted tissue and assists the body’s return to its natural healing ability. Clients dealing with migraines, headaches, TMJ Syndrome, neck and back pain, emotional issues and depression, chronic muscle and joint pain, as well as, many other conditions will benefit from this therapy. Clients are fully clothed and lie or sit in a comfortable position during this therapy.
Kinesio Taping or K-Taping—
K-Taping is placed on the affected body areas after a bodywork session.  K-tape affects several systems (circulatory/lymphatic, neural, muscular, and fascial, joints) by changing muscle and fascial tone and stimulating and increasing blood and lymphatic fluid flow.  The tape is made from cotton fiber and latex-free hypoallergenic acrylic adhesive that mimics the thickness and weight of skin.  K-Tape differs from athletic taping in that it allows a full range of motion (dependent upon physical condition) and is left on for any period of time needed.  K-Tape is available for purchase in the office. You will be instructed how to apply for your specific issue for use at home between office visits.
Medical or Therapeutic Massage Therapy–
Medical or Therapeutic  Massage Therapy is integrative outcome-based bodywork targeting  specific problem(s).  With your help we evaluate, test, and narrow in on the soft tissue causing the discomfort and plan a course of treatment. The integrative soft tissue modalities used in a session may include any of the following: Cranio Sacral, Medi Cupping, Kinesio Taping, Myofascial, Precision Neuromuscular Therapy, or Positional Release Therapy.  Unlike a spa massage this type of therapy requires your validation as we implement the treatment plan.  However, you should feel relaxed when finished with treatment.  Many conditions are helped with this approach: back and neck pain, chronic pain, sports injuries, pre and post surgery, scar tissue (new or old), arthritis, and many, many more.
Medi Cupping—
MediCupping Therapy is a vacuum therapy that uses plastic cups and a vacuum machine to create suction on the body surface. As the cup moves over the tissue surface, the practitioner uses various techniques to help mobilize joints and release soft tissue. This suction works to mobilize inflammation and toxins (cellular debris) to the lymphatic system for elimination. Adhesions of tissue (muscle, fascia, scar tissue, etc.) are mobilized using cupping enabling increased range of motion thereby decreasing discomfort and pain.  Cupping is used to help reduce the dimpling affect of cellulite.  Many other conditions are helped with MediCupping, such as, arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, loose skin from weight loss, lymphedema, fibromyalgia, sports injuries, COPD, and more.
Myofascial Therapy—
Myofascial Therapy (MFR) treats the immobility of muscles by relaxing and improving the connective tissue called fascia.  Fascia is an elastic, supportive connective tissue that surrounds most structures in the body.  Like muscles it can become restricted from overuse, trauma, inactivity, etc.   MFR aids in the release of the connective tissue and stimulates the blood and lymphatic circulation to support natural body healing, increase range of motion and reduce associated muscle pain.
Precision Neuromuscular Therapy or PNMT/Positional Release Therapy or PRT—
PNMT and PRT are outcome-based soft tissue manipulation techniques that focus on the evaluation, testing and treatment of the muscles causing the pain.  These techniques require your feedback during treatment to hone in on the areas of concern.  As with the Medical/Therapeutic Massage you should feel relaxed at the end of the session.
Raindrop Therapy/Aromatherapy—
Raindrop Therapy/Aromatherapy is a healing technique using essential oils, reflexology techniques, massage and moist heat to restore the body’s balance and harmony mentally, physically and emotionally. It promotes the structural and electrical alignment of the body for renewed health. It is a detoxifying process that helps to fight bacteria and viruses, while improving the immune system. Raindrop Therapy is very relaxing, and rest is suggested following this one and half hour treatment. Conditions helped by Raindrop Therapy include energy fatigue; depression and emotional issues; arthritis and fibromyalgia, colds and flu, immune system deficiency, body pain and inflammation. Raindrop Therapy serves to detox the body, improves Lymph System circulation, as well as, promotes and restores healthy cells and all over balancing of the body.

Emotion Code
NIA Fitness Dance Classes & Healing Classes
Wellness Consulting

Bethamie Wyatt, an experienced Certified Emotion Code Practitioner and founder of Healing In Motion, provides emotion release therapy, as well as, health education and  NIA movement wellness dance classes.

As a certified and licensed NIA instructor, Bethamie creates a space for healing and choosing joy. NIA, or Neuromuscular Integrative Action, is a sensory-based movement practice fusing nine different movement forms from the dance arts, martial arts and the healing arts including yoga. As a cardiovascular exercise, NIA builds flexibility, agility, mobility, strength and stability. It is effective for weight-loss and is known to help many conditions including depression, asthma, diabetes, arthritis and fibromyalgia to name a few.

Bethamie balances the joy, excitement and fun of Nia with its calming, healing components and offers dance classes to women, men and teens of all abilities.

“Nia came into my life as a gift and I am so grateful to be able to share this healing experience with others,” she says. An instructor since 2008, Bethamie facilitates Nia classes and workshops that encourage community and connection among class participants. Impressions from her cultural experiences in Senegal, West Africa and Belize, Central America can be felt in her classes through the sounds and rhythms of these musically rich places. Each gathering with Bethamie is a unique experience with a blend of broad influences that allow her to provide a quality education around health and movement wellness while building a rapport with a diverse group of participants. After a class with Bethamie, you are sure to step into your day on the “Nia cloud” – strong and determined yet relaxed and rejuvenated!

Bethamie is also a Certified Emotion Code Practitioner. The Emotion Code is a bio-energetic healing technique that frees the body of the weight of trapped emotions. This simple and gentle technique, using kinesiology or muscle-testing, releases years of built-up emotions that are often at the root of many physical ailments and emotional disturbances. Releasing these trapped emotions (with the use of healing magnets) often results in transformational experiences, allowing people to live a life of more clarity and balance, unstuck on their life paths and happier.

Bethamie holds a Master’s Degree in Women’s Studies with a concentration in women’s health education from Eastern Michigan University.  For over a decade, she has provided health education workshops focusing on the physical, social and emotional health of girls and the women in their lives. Through health education and movement, Bethamie creates a supportive and safe environment that allows a space for girls and women to explore their personal growth and development.

Flip Troiano, MD, is a functional integrative medicine practitioner and fellow in the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M), a member of the Institute of Functional Medicine and a board certified Emergency Medicine physician. He is one of the founding members of the Wisconsin Institute of Integrative Medicine.

He earned his undergraduate BBA from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and his medical degree from the University of Wisconsin – School of Medicine. He did his internship at Cook County Hospital in Chicago, where he earned the Dr. Bruno Epstein Achievement award in recognition of Meritorious Service in the care of patients. He finished his second year of Internal Medicine residency and his Emergency Medicine Residency at the Medical College of Wisconsin. He has practiced Emergency Medicine since 1987, first as faculty in the Section of Trauma and Emergency Medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin, continuing with full time practice of Emergency Medicine for 16 years at St. Luke’s Medical Center and 9 years at Aurora Sinai Medical Center in Milwaukee, WI.

In the Emergency Department most of his time was spent dealing with the exacerbations of chronic illnesses. Dr. Flip saw ever increasing numbers of younger patients returning to the Emergency Department with worsening exacerbations of heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, chronic fatigue, abdominal pain, chronic immune diseases, and obesity. He became increasingly concerned with the standard practice of medicine which emphasizes the treatment of symptoms but does little to encourage a root cause analysis of the disease process.

“Dr. Flip” is presently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Anti-Aging, Regenerative and Functional Medicine.  In the field of functional and integrative medicine he discovered that we already have the science and the ability to diagnose and reverse or significantly alter the course of many of the chronic diseases that are plaguing our society today. Following a thorough evaluation of history, genetic factors, environmental exposures, nutritional status, sleep patterns, stress levels, support systems, exercise habits and laboratory testing an individualized plan of care is developed. These plans integrate lifestyle modifications and relevant, evidence-based science from both traditional and alternative medicine in order to restore and maintain health. Dr. Flip’s goal is to help his patients lead healthy, happy lives filled with boundless energy, restful sleep, increased mobility, less pain and great vitality.

Serving Children, Adolescents & Adults

Jodi A. Brin is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who enjoys working with children, adolescents, and adults. Her therapeutic style is best described as integrative, utilizing the framework that she sees as most helpful to each individual, couple, or family that she works with. She has been trained in a variety of therapy modalities, including play therapy, behavior modification, cognitive behavioral therapy, supportive therapy, and psychodynamic therapy. She has worked with clients and various clinical issues, including depression, anxiety, trauma, behavioral issues, ADHD, and grief and loss. Dr. Brin has a wonderful ability to connect and empathize with clients, allowing her to use the therapeutic relationship to help her clients move in a positive, healing direction.

Dr. Brin believes that grief and loss experiences greatly affect all of our lives; whether it be a death of a loved one, loss of a pet, separation, divorce, loss of job, a move to a new house, a child moving to college, loss/change in health, etc. Dr. Brin believes that internalized, suppressed grief often leads to physical and mental health issues. After experiencing her own grief and loss, Br. Brin became increasingly aware of the vast and conflicting emotions associated with grief and was intrigued by the verbal and nonverbal messages she received from others in response to her loss. Looking to explore this further, she found The Grief Recovery Institute and Participated in The Grief Recovery Method® Certification Program. As a certified grief recovery specialist, Dr. Brin helps to provide a safe, supportive environment in which the client can explore old beliefs about dealing with loss, identify what losses have effected one’s life, and help the client to take the steps necessary to complete the pain associated with those losses and move forward. In addition to helping adults, Dr. Brin helps grieving children to understand and express their feelings regarding their loss and helps the parent/ caregiver learn how to best support the child.

Dr. Brin also has a very special interest in psychological oncology.

Yoga for relief of symptoms of Anxiety and Depression

“The day came when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” -Anais Nin

Susan Trafton,EdD is a Licensed Psychologist.

“I provide a safe place for you to blossom. As the bud opens, the pain and hurt gradually release and the beautiful flower of who you are emerges. The therapeutic relationship provides the support necessary to allow that pain to be experienced so healing can happen.

My goal is to guide the individuals who come to me through the pain of anxiety, depression, trauma, life transitions and difficult relationships to place where they can reclaim their birth right of joy, peace and love. My approach is holistic. I believe emotions, thoughts and painful body sensations are interconnected. The gateway into one’s healing can be through any of these doors. Usually all three ultimately need to be addressed. Healing of emotions occurs through allowing the pain to arise, be felt and thus let go. Healing of thought occurs through awareness that one’s thought patterns can create suffering. I help my clients become aware of their negative thinking and support them in choosing thoughts that bring a higher quality of life. I believe emotional pain is stored in the body which can result in body discomfort and illness. Thus, I help my clients release this stored pain. Through the psychotherapeutic process, the client gradually gains control of thoughts and emotions rather than be controlled by them. As the healing process proceeds my clients feel stronger, more resilient and self-confident, freed from past pain and empowered with techniques to live skillfully in their present lives. The ultimate goal is for the client to love themselves just as they are.

I achieve these goals through deep listening, cognitive behavioral therapy, inner child work, EMDR, mindfulness techniques, and yoga of poses and breath work.”
