Moving – but nothing is happening

Does it ever feel like you’re stuck in a revolving door, spinning round and round, and going nowhere?

After attempting to find help and solutions to heal injuries and resolve pain. several years ago, for me and my father.

Unfortunately, it began to feel just like that, a revolving door… 

Going to practitioner after practitioner.

Having the same techniques done every time

Given a list of the same exercises to do or told that there was nothing they could do, and this is your new normal.

All of this resulted in little to no long-term resolutions to our issues.

Seeking a Change

If you asked me what the common denominator is for people who walk through my doors to work with me or seek out a kind of therapy such as Rolfing®, my answer would be one word.

CHANGE

Something is happening within their experience that they are looking to change.

And it was the same for my Dad and me, what we needed the most was a change.

A change, not only in our physical experience, wanting to live pain-free, but a change in our treatment. 

We needed a new perspective. A new approach to healing and recovery.

The Philosophy

Rather than attempting to force an imposed ideal on someone, Rolfing®, and even my own personal philosophy looks to do the opposite.

Instead, Rolfing® aims to be adaptable and fit the unique person you are. Everyone has experienced completely different life experiences, habits, forces, and demands placed upon their bodies. 

Often what someone needs for their specific situation can be overlooked.

It’s easy to trap ourselves as humans in confirmation bias and do what. we’ve always done.

Most receive help in the form of a diagnosis that places them in a particular box, and then treatment comes in the form of a cookie cutter approach that is given to everyone as if everyone was the same.

And anyone with common sense knows that is not the case.

Even when suffering the same exact injury as another, it still is not the same.

We all have different body structures; we all have different habits, jobs, and life events that have literally shaped who we are.

That means the solution for each person will and MUST vary to match their unique circumstances.

The story of your body

 I understand that everyone is unique, and the work that we do in each session reflects this.

It isn’t exactly about a fancy technique – it’s about operating from the principles that are fundamental to the human body and for the healing process.

Working from this place allows us to work with and support the body and person compared to forcing them into a particular box and fighting it to change

In this work, my goal is to make sure each person feels safe and supported, empowered by realizing current capabilities they may not know were available to them, while simultaneously discovering new ones.

The main focus is to offer the body more options.   Increasing the adaptability to handle the varying stresses of life, both physically and psychologically, because the more physically capable we are, the more mentally and emotionally capable we become as well.

About Me

Ever since I was young, I loved to figure out how things worked. So, it was inevitable that my analytical mind would become fascinated by trying to understand human movement and the relationship it has on our health and well-being.

For the past 8 years, I’ve dedicated most of my life to learning from some of the world’s best teachers and thinkers within the realm of human movement, to begin understanding the principles that are the foundation to optimizing human movement and health.

Graduating in 2017 from the Dr. Ida Rolf Institute in Boulder, CO. During my time there, I learned from instructors with decades of experience and even direct students of Ida Rolf.

 Rolfing® has made a significant impact not only in my life, but I’ve also witnessed the impact it can have on the lives of others as well. Rolfing® allows the opportunity to provide something that people aren’t aware is available that makes a profound difference in their life. For this reason, I’m excited and passionate about this work and look forward to continue sharing it with others. 

l also hold certifications in the FR® and FRC® systems that I integrate into my work.

Outside of my work, I spend most of my free time out in nature. Favorite activities are backpacking, hiking some of Colorado’s great peaks, or simply sitting by the water with my dog and loved ones catching the sunset.
