Meet the Founder

Practicing for over 15 years as an Occupational Therapist, Raina has developed an innovative passion for healthier thinking and living. She achieved her Certification in Hand Therapy in 2002 and is specialized in the treatment of upper body injuries, including the most complicated pain syndromes and severe trauma cases. Certification as a Posture Exercise Professional provides her with an exceptional understanding of the structural make-up and functional dynamics of the human body. With experience teaching all across the globe, presenting regularly at conferences, developing courses at the university level, and a strong involvement in community based programs, Raina has become a highly respected educator in her field.

Raina is dedicated to education, empowerment and patient participation. The energetic therapist notes "I make it a priority to ensure my patients are provided the opportunity to fully understand their injury and therapy program. I often find teaching to be one of the most important parts of my job. Through my work, I have learned to respect the body as an integrated whole and utilize a very holistic approach. Incorporating many postural and body balancing activities into my treatments has proven to be amazingly effective. So many therapeutic techniques should be used early, but people often don't have access to that information when needed. I have realized the endless benefits of this knowledge for people in their daily lives, not just to treat problems but prevent them all together, and that is why I created Designing Wellness."

Designing Wellness aims to make valuable health education readily available to everybody. Raina's vision is to provide knowledge for individuals to reconnect with their bodies, their health and become active participants in their wellness. "Educate~Empower~Excel", describes the learning process that is the cornerstone of all Designing Wellness programs and why she believes they are successful at providing lifelong benefits.

"I look forward to the opportunity to help people feel their best, including your employees, your friends, your family and you."
