Chronic pain brought me to my first Rolfing session and curiosity brought me to the rest of the series. If my body could feel that good after just one session, what were the possibilities contained within the entire series?
Completing the 10-series and subsequent tune-ups remain one of the best investments I have ever made. To be able to feel at home in a body that for many years didn't feel like my own was the best gift I have ever given myself and is one of the reasons I decided to become a Rolfer™.
Two months after my first 10-series, I went on a solo road/backpacking trip across the country. Prior to Rolfing, I was unable to hike more than a few miles with a pack on without excruciating knee pain. On this trip, I was hiking 10-17 miles daily for a few weeks with no pain other than the expected muscle soreness. My body was also recovering from the hikes faster than I thought possible. It was on one of these hikes that I received the other half of my equation: at a pivotal moment in my life, I realized that I would reach my full potential when I was helping others reach their full potential. Here I am.
What I love about my job is helping people reconnect with their bodies, helping them to once again feel at home. I love exploring options for how to be and how to function in this world without chronic tension and pain.
Life experiences that I bring to my practice
I look forward to working with you.
