Dr. Steinecker's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Steinecker "Dr. Steinecker had a private practice in Neurology in Port Angeles, Washington for seven years before she went with her husband David and two sons to Israel to complete a fellowship in Developmental Pediatrics for two years. Upon her return she spent four additional months of training in Developmental Pediatrics at the Child Development Unit at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, before returning to the Northwest in 1997 and opening her current practice emphasizing Holistic Pediatrics. Dr. Steinecker went "back to basics," in using her highly skilled and trained hands with every patient. She often states: "I went from using Cranial Osteopathy as a last resort, in difficult and failing cases, to a first-line treatment for all my patients. Often, patients no longer need medication and can avoid surgery." Dr. Steinecker earned her undergraduate degree with high honors in Anthropology and Psychology in 1972 from the City University of New York. She went on to graduate from the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine in 1980 where she first learned Cranial Sacral, osteopathic hands-on therapy. I was lucky enough to study, my hands under his, with Dr. Thomas A. Schooley, the prodigious student of Dr. Sutherland who discovered the cranial-sacral mechanism. Dr. Sutherland was an original student of Dr. A. T. Still. After a general medical education, including studying Osteopathic Practice and Principles, Dr. Steinecker did a rotating internship in Long Beach, California and a year of surgery residency at Detroit Osteopathic Hospital. She then changed her focus to Neurology and while Chief Resident at Wayne State University, she began publishing her own original medical scientific research. She was awarded a National Institute of Health Research Training Grant by the Primate Center at the University of Washington to do a research fellowship on peripheral nerve injuries. During that time she supervised medical residents in the Multiple Sclerosis Clinic and saw patients in the Neurology and Rehabilitation Medicine Clinics at the University of Washington Hospital. Dr. Steinecker then sub-specialized in developmental pediatrics with additional training at the Rifka Zief Child Development Unit in Israel, and the University of Colorado Child Development Unit at the Children's Hospital of Denver."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Steinecker "Dr. Steinecker believes in the holistic OSTEOPATHIC approach to healthcare, activating the body's innate ability to heal itself and honoring the higher consciousness of each patient regardless of age.  With over 35 years of experience as a Neurologist and extensive training in the field of Cranial Manipulation, she has a unique advantage and insight into correcting the problems experienced by thosewho have had brain injuries.

The path to recovery without drugs and invasive tests starts when you put your trust in her hands.  She is also well versed in the metaphysical and able to help you find your way spiritually as well as physically.  

"Children often have complex issues these days, particularly because of the impact of our stressful lives, how we birth, our toxic environment, and our highly allergenic and nutrient-deficient diets.  The environmental and allergic medical problems I see in young patients today far exceed those of my own two children. "
