I have always had a passion for the healing arts. As a child, my Irish grandmother tended her large family with gentle hands and a profound understanding of how to minister to the whole human being. She cured all of our ills with love and with tinctures, poultices and ointments made from herbs grown in her garden. Although she died when I was just eight years old, her beliefs about health and healing had a lasting impact on my life.
After spending many years in the field of conventional medicine I reached a point in my career and life where my personal beliefs regarding healing work and the requirements of my job no longer coincided. I personally believe that if your heart and soul are not behind what you are doing then you are doing a disservice to your clients. Therefore, I began looking for a way to bridge between conventional Western medicine and Naturopathic approaches from around the world.
I had been introduced to Rolfing® Structural Integration in the mid 1980s through my martial arts instructor and enjoyed the whole body awareness approach to the therapy, but I never completed a 10-series. After many years of martial arts training, rock climbing, hiking, and several spectacular accidents, my body was structurally unbalanced and bound by scar tissue that resulted in chronic pain and restricted movement. That realization started a search through conventional and alternative therapies for healing and relief, all without resolution. Until, finally, I came full circle and returned to Rolfing SI.
My Rolfing experience restored the natural flow of breath, and gave me a sense of lift and vitality that I hadn’t felt for years. That new sense of freedom and resiliency inspired me to make a career change from Biotechnology to Rolfing. I am now a graduate of the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration and can proudly call myself a Certified Rolfer™. Rolfing SI is a whole body process that can provide a path to improved wellness and ease in your body. It is a wonderful gift that I look forward to sharing with you.
