Sciatic nerve pain prevented me from doing what I wanted
How I found Rolfing
I became a Rolfing practitioner after having a life changing experience as a client myself. In the process of Rolfing® I realized it’s not necessary to live with chronic pain; I gained a new sense of balance, increased range of motion, relief from my chronic pain, and more effortless movement through the constant of gravity.Rolfing® SI (Rolfing) came to me in the form of a business card – after a worsening sciatic nerve pain I was barely walking and definitely not exercising or enjoying any of the activities I used to. Body stress from logging and construction, the way I walked (like Charlie Chaplin), and then years sitting in front of a computer brought me to the point where I walked hunched over looking at the ground in constant pain. One day someone handed me a business card for a Rolfer™ saying “you gotta go see this guy.”

From Client to Rolfer
Four weeks later, wow – I could do things I had forgotten were possible! Literally I could run faster, turn quicker, jump higher – recovery time was drastically reduced if I twisted an ankle or got a kink or injury. Mountain biking was so much more awesome; in fact everything was so much more awesome!Four years later and there was no sign of my back going ‘out’ any more. That was the turning point that ultimately inspired me to leave my corporate gig, become a Rolfer™ and open my own studio, California Rolfing and Massage. I had been in pain for 20 years and finally discovered something that worked to release the tension. I realized I had to share Rolfing with the World – the process of manual manipulation when applied to body structures can address many of our chronic injuries and pain (adhesions and lesions inside the body). The Rolf method of manual therapy works to promote body awareness, postural alignment, increased circulation, movement and breath, as well as education tailored to each person’s needs with lasting effects. Often, in 10 sessions or less, you will be back to doing the activities you enjoy.
is to help others rediscover the feeling of expansional balance within the body, and address chronic pain as part of the process. Together we may find a new sense of balance and move more gracefully in life. Call to set up an appointment, and let’s get started!
