Introducing Elizabeth Mixon, LMT

Elizabeth offers ortho-bionomy, an osteopath based therapy that works with structure, lymph, fluids, neurology, organs and the endocrine system. She came to this work through her personal injury involving a ruptured disc, which caused severe nerve pain. After searching a number of modalities for over two years, relief was found through Ortho-Bionomy, returning her to a pain free life. It was life changing for her, and she added Ortho-Bionomy certification to the list of modalities she offered. She has been in practice since 1998. Ortho-Bionomy addresses a variety of painful issues including back pain, knee and hip pain, shoulder pain, lymphatic issues, herniated disks and much more. Learn more about Elizabeth.
