Monique uses FMT techniques to provide foot pain relief to patients who have tried almost everything, including orthotics. FMT is a very effective treatment to restore normal joint function and range of motion, aiding the body in creating physiological changes to postural alignment. This gentle, specific and painless technique stimulates the body’s ability to repair and restore itself, helping to reduce pain and inflammation.

Monique has worked alongside vascular surgeons, infectious disease physicians, endocrinologists, orthotists, diabetes educators and wound care nurses.
