panning over 30 years of cumulative experience, Bird Lew's methodology comprises a tapestry of varied disciplines. Her own personal journey to heal injuries and imbalances, led to a broad-range of studies in complementary therapies, including that of movement study moving over stone-one of many effective methods she draws from to treat her patients. Bird Lew's treatment philosophy is greatly influenced by many thought leaders including: Lynda Ceasara, a senior student of Lauren Berry regarding soft tissue alignment, Matt Callison, L.Ac in his interpretation of releasing Trigger Points, and Darren Starwyn inventor of the Acutron.
Her philosophy is also drawn from her knowledge of the movement awareness practices of Pilates (Brent Anderson/Elizabeth Larkam, 1993), Yoga (Kim Orenstein, 2003), and a variety of explorations in breath work, and meditations.
