Shauna Burchett, OTR/L, Owner
Shauna Burchett is the owner of Synergy Healthcare in Spokane, WA. She graduated from University of Alberta, Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine, Department of Occupational Therapy in 1993. She began her career as an occupational therapist specializing in traumatic head injuries. She has also worked in skilled nursing facilities specializing in long and short term geriatric rehabilitation. Shauna has been in private practice since 1998.
She loves craniosacral therapy, visceral manipulation and lymphatic drainage. Her perspective on healing and recovery has been influenced by many osteopaths whose classes she has taken, but more importantly by the clients that have taught her through their injuries and illnesses.
She loves the expression ” If you listen hard enough to a patient they will tell you what is wrong with them, but if you listen even harder they will tell you how to fix it.” It is the framework on which she built the clinic. The perspective she tries to lead from and from which she tries to live her life. “I think we don’t listen enough”.
Shauna enjoys spending time with her husband, Robin, and three sons, Ethan, Parker and Sawyer. She also enjoys traveling, playing the piano, and studying yoga.
