Betsy Shandalov, OTR /L, C-IAYT, AWC, has worked as a clinician, educator and supervisor in rehabilitation and community re-entry. She now treats adults and children in a variety of healthcare and educational settings, using Ayurveda, Yoga, Meditation and Mindfulness as her main therapeutic modalities.
