Pain Therapy San Francisco LIZANNE PASTORE, PT, MA, COMT

Lizanne knows about the impact and importance of physical and emotional well-being from both an academic perspective: a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Vermont, and a Master’s degree in Somatic Psychology, from The California Institute of Integral Studies, but also from a personal perspective. She spent more than nine months in recovery after being hit by a car that broke her back. She not only developed a personal relationship with pain, but learned firsthand what it means to be disabled, albeit temporarily. She credits her recuperation to a healthy balance of physical rehab as well as a grounded practice of sensory awareness, a core tenet of a somatic philosophy.

Pain Clinic San FranciscoPhysical therapy is an incredibly dynamic and evolving profession, and it is vital that PT’s stay updated with current information. Over the years, Lizanne has continued her professional education and training in many areas. Highlights are Lizanne’s certifications in Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapy (COMT), and Neuro-Development Treatment (NDT), both considered gold standards of manual therapy in their respective fields.

Pain Clinic MarinIn 1995, Lizanne opened her own physical therapy practice in San Francisco, which thrived through word of mouth referrals. In 2012, Lizanne moved her business to Sonoma County to be closer to her home. She joined the team at P.O.S.T. ~ Wellness by Design in their groovy "green-design" space on the Petaluma River.

As an "associate," Lizanne continues to have complete autonomy over her practice but is able to work within a well-respected, established center with like-minded practitioners, who share her philosophy of treating patients as people not body parts. Here, Lizanne blends the newest evidence-based manual therapy techniques with a cutting-edge somatic perspective to partner with her clients. This approach allows her to guide her clients to a more integrated, compassionate, and conscious awareness of the "body/self," while achieving hard-core results—less pain, increased strength, improved function. Clients can choose to participate in pilates, yoga, and somatic movement and dance classes right in the same facility, while practitioners and teachers can coordinate exercise programs and care.
