Rolf Structural Integration practitioner
Chris Corrales' lifetime training as a martial artist and his 25 years as a manual therapist have given him insights into the body that most current diagnoses, drugs, scans and healthcare therapies overlook when it comes to unexplained orthopedic pain.
Observations into his own body, clinical experience, and science are the tools he uses to understand his clients holistically and multi-dimensionally. Chris believes that this is the future of pain assessments because it is truly client centered which science and experience tells us is what matters most.
When modern pain science talks about "the person" it is referring to the latest findings on the interaction between the brain and body. Chris believes that this is the West's contribution to holistic paradigms, and by the results he gets it works!
In addition he resides on the Board of Directors for the International Association for Structural Integrators as secretary and volunteers at the world renown San Diego Pain Summit, the only multi-disciplinary pain convention in the world.
Born and raised in San Diego, the Bay Area has been home now for 24 years. He loves people, spending time in nature, hiking, traveling, and family. The Great Pause caused by COVID-19 called him to one of his greatest passions where he began facilitating middle aged men's groups. He's currently in training to become a life coach.
The central modality I practice is called Structural Integration. Since its inception it has been known as the holistic hands-on therapy.
Structural Integration's founder, Dr. Ida Rolf, saw generational family history and social impact as parts of the puzzle that should always be included with body alignment, movement patterns, habits and lifestyle that are often overlooked.
It is fruitful to treat the person and futile to chase symptoms.
There are 3 steps to become a client at MedicinEvolution.
1) Our first connection will be a 15 minute free phone consultation. If the program seems to be a good fit for you . . .
2) We'd schedule a Movement Assessment and Strategy Session where you really begin to understand your pattern. Then, we layout what your individualized program will look like for you and you get to choose if you'd like to join the program.
3) Enroll in the program
Because the root causes of pain are so hard to diagnose and most modern scans, drugs, surgery, and therapies do a pretty weak job of treating it I saw the opportunity for pain to be a portal for self-awareness which gives people their lives back.
I found that hands-on therapy, science, and self-awareness were the 3 things that enlightened and empowered clients about their bodies, truly helping them out of pain.
