Joanna Cutler

My perspective as a practitioner comes from my own search for relief from back pain. When I was 20 years old I felt like I was 80. After years of chronic pain, trying every mode of therapy and eventual surgery, I discovered this work. It helped me recover not only from surgery but also from postural habits formed over years of chronic pain. I work with adults as well as kids. And I'm a walking testimonial that you don't have to accept the usual prognosis of loss of flexibility and coordination with age. There is a better way!


Phoebe MacRae

My interest in the wonders of the human brain led me to discover the Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement®. Witnessing the incredible outcomes of the Method inspired me to fully complete the Basic and Mastery ABM training and to fulfill my desire to be in the healing arts. I love giving private lessons to children and adults and have led many successful multi-day workshops. Hailing from Victoria BC and now based in Portland OR, I have three busy kids and have spent my whole life studying and making music. I am a traveling practitioner, traveling to British Columbia and eastern Washington state.

Move Better, Feel Better!

Kathy Shean-Jones

I "stumbled" upon ABM while researching a career change...and never looked back!  My 10+ years of elementary and preschool teaching inform the NeuroMovement® work I do with children and families. I find inspiration from the kids and adults on my table, as well as the amazing families they bring with them! As the mother to three amazing daughters, I also love how this work influences my parenting. My office is in SE Portland, and I regularly travel to Eugene and Newport, OR.         I love this work!
