I first received Rolfing in 1997 after a skiing accident left me with lower back pain and sciatica. I tried chiropractic manipulations, physical therapy, orthopedic services, ice (and more ice), immobilization, and rest. While these therapies were beneficial, I was truly impressed with the benefits I received from my Rolfing sessions. Chronic patterns of tension in my body were relieved during the treatments; and I believe those old patterns were the reason my lumbar back was primed for injury in the first place.
My background is in pharmaceutical sciences, however, I have always had a passion for natural healing modalities. I retired from my pharmacy practice in 2011 to purse my passion for alternative health studies. My training in anatomy and physiology served me well as I shifted my career into a more holistic field. I took my yoga practice to a new level with yoga teacher training, and studied Thai yoga therapy and reflexology while attending massage therapy school. After graduating from massage school, I was accepted in to the Rolf Institute® of Structural Integration and graduated in 2014.
