Presenter’s Bio:

Dr. Jake Felice, N.D., specializes in the treatment of chronic pain and the improvement of human performance. He is a graduate of Bastyr University, and former adjunct professor where he taught Advanced Soft-Tissue Manipulation and Radiographic Lab Interpretation. He earned his undergraduate degree from Penn State University where he played varsity lacrosse and majored in psychology with a focus on the study of peak human performance.

Dr. Felice’s comprehensive approach to pain blends traditional healing practices with the best of modern science. These treatments are unique because they work with both the physical body and our mental awareness at the same time. Therapy sessions focus on understanding how pain influences our body’s movements, and on how our relaxation and fear/pain responses affect these patterns. This direct experience eases pain and helps patients learn quickly about the direct and profound connection between our bodies and our minds.

Dr Felice medical practice offers natural solutions for chronic pain and personal performance. Therapies include manual medicine, cranial-sacral therapy, visceral manipulation, and medical cannabis evaluations.

He has performed thousands of hours of manual therapy and combines his insights into the martial arts to gain a unique perspective on the connection between pain and the mind-body connection.
