Tami is an NCBTMB approved continuing education provider
When her youngest child was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, High Functioning Autism, Tami Goldstein, WLMT, CST-D, CIMI, spent the next few years in a tailspin trying to find ways to help her daughter. Working with a pediatrician and occupational therapist that specialized in autism, she watched in amazement as a more holistic, all-natural approach augmented and did what no western medicine techniques could accomplish. Some of those approaches included various techniques to stimulate the sense of touch.
Tami started by studying Reiki Therapy. Reiki a Japanese word meaning universal life energy. The first part Rei refers to our spiritual dimension or soul. The second part Ki means vital life or energy. This ancient natural method of healing touches the body without physically touching the body. (How else do you connect with a child who feels pain when you touch them?)
Creating this multidisciplinary approach, incorporating what some consider alternative approaches with Western medicine facilitated the functioning recovery her daughter has achieved.
Tami became so fascinated with the benefits provided by Massage Therapy and CranioSacral Therapy she decided to become certified and is currently State and Nationally certified in Therapeutic Massage, Bodywork and in CranioSacral Therapy. Her daughter’s Functioning Recovery is maintained by a Sensory Lifestyle and CranioSacral Therapy.
