About Special Therapies, Inc.

Special Therapies, Inc. was developed by Susan Vaughan Kratz, OT, CST-D in 1994.  Starting out in a rented schoolhouse, we grew into a nationally recognized developmental and sensory integration practice.  Currently, our practice focuses on bodywork and manual therapies.  The clinic offers an eclectic style of intervention. With strong backgrounds in pediatric and adult neuro-rehabilitation, neuro-developmental treatment, sensory integration, and craniosacral therapy, Special Therapies shapes its practice model around sound scientific support and evidence-based formats.  We work consistently to stay abreast of current theories, approaches, and best practices.  Primary referral sources have been word-of-mouth based upon clinical outcomes.

Expertise:  Special Therapies is a private group licensed to practice in the State of Wisconsin who have decades of experience offering the following services:

CranioSacral Therapy | Lymphatic Drainage | Visceral Manipulation

Sensory Integration | Neuro Developmental Therapy

Please Note:  Special Therapies does not accept insurance assignment, therefore we request payment at the time of service.  We are not a Medicare or Medicaid provider.  We are out-of-network for all private insurance carriers but will file insurance claims as a courtesy if requested.

"Every visit, my son seems to be able to self-regulate a little more.  You have helped with getting his sense of smell back, with his spine stiffness, and teaching how to regulate his organs.  He feels more relaxed and he looks forward to his sessions.  It makes my heart happy releasing his tensions - it has helped so much"
-T.G. and son
