What makes your practice special when compared with others in the area?
I came to Rolfing while I was an athlete competing at an International level in the sport of Biathlon. I was competing in World Cups and World Championships and was always looking for something to give me an edge, to become better and move to the next level. So, I was curious when I began to hear about Rolfing from other athletes and how it helped them recover, gave them more fluidity and economy of motion and increased self-awareness. This curiosity spurred me on to enroll in the Rolf Institute and in 2002 I earned my certification in Rolfing from the European Rolfing Association in Munich, Germany. Rolfing has led to me to work with elite level athletes at the Olympic Training Center in Lake Placid, New York, World Cup competitions around the globe and develop an ongoing relationship with the US Biathlon National team with a focus on preparations for the 2018 Peyong Chang Olympic Games. While one aspect of my San Francisco Rolfing practice has been sport centric, I have worked with all kinds of people from many different walks of life; from stay at home moms and desk-bound office workers to general contractors and even opera singers! Rolfing has something to offer every BODY, you do not need to be limited by your aches and pains or tired patterns, come and move towards balance and freedom. I look forward to seeing how I might help you and if we are a good fit.
What are you and your team proud of at your practice?
One aspect of my work that makes me very happy is that fact that manual therapy can be a never ending field of learning. In my practice I tailor each session to the needs of the client, trying to balance the immediate and acute concerns with the broader goals of better posture and improved personal awareness. The tools I bring to this endeavor are a certification Rolfing, ongoing study of the nervous system and working with nerves as well as continuing education in the field of pain education. There has been a significant advancement of our understanding of pain in the last 15 years and I am dedicated to learning better ways of alleviating pain in clients as well as explaining the way our nervous systems can create and perpetuate pain in an otherwise healthy body. Much of this pain eduction work is supported by recent scientific studies, that thanks to fMRI machines, have provided many new options for working with longterm pain. I am proud that my practice is built upon a commitment to continuing education, as a way to provide a higher quality of care and as a way to keep myself engaged and growing!
