Announcement Regarding Coronavirus:

I hope each of you is well and safe amid the sudden uncertainty. May those who are vulnerable among us receive protection and timely treatment.

I’ve made the decision to stop seeing clients for now, because of the COVID-19 outbreak.

We don’t know enough to be sure there are any precautions that will absolutely ensure safety, and I don’t want to risk being a vector for spreading the coronavirus to my clients. I’ll reevaluate as we all learn more in the coming days and weeks. Once we see how the first spike in sick people develops, and once testing is widely available, I hope it will be safe to resume with extra precautions.

I’m more than happy to be a resource for you in the meantime if I can, as far as strategies and cues for posture, movement, and coping. I love what I do, and I will be missing sharing it, so feel free to reach out any time!

Let’s all take care, and whenever we can touch in with a sense of peace and courage, let's share it with those who need it.

Who was Dr. Rolf?

Dr. Ida P. Rolf, Ph.D. (1896–1979) was a bio­chemist and the cre­ator of Struc­tur­al Inte­gra­tion, lat­er called Rolf­ing, and a huge influ­ence in the devel­op­ment of body­work in gen­er­al.

Dr. Rolf explored mul­ti­ple forms of alter­na­tive heal­ing in an effort to bet­ter under­stand the body, ini­tial­ly to help her­self and her sons with health issues. In the devel­op­ment of Struc­tur­al Inte­gra­tion, lat­er to be called Rolf­ing, she drew from yoga, osteopa­thy, chi­ro­prac­tic, and oth­er modal­i­ties.

The cen­tral focus of Dr. Rolf’s work was to see that the body’s orga­ni­za­tion in grav­i­ty is absolute­ly essen­tial to order and health, and the con­nec­tive tis­sues (fas­cia) play a cru­cial role in how ordered or dis­or­dered the body is at any time.
