Massage Therapy & Structural Integration
In 2001, I made a decision to change to a career with more physical movement.
I had spent most of my life at this point, sitting at a computer for many long hours.
As a result, I suffered back and neck soreness as well as it affecting a mild scoliosis.
This took me to Boulder, Colorado to study at the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration where I completed the Foundations of Somatic Practice program. Once I began working with clients, I decided that it would be more useful to become a massage therapist so people could use their health benefits and to further my knowledge of the body. I enrolled in school again and became a Registered Massage Therapist by 2004.
In 2009, I began another aspect of Structural Integration (S.I.) with Tom Myers, who wrote the book "Anatomy Trains" and developed his own version of S.I. which he called Kinesis Myofascial Integration based on those myofascial patterns he had identified, which I completed by December 2010.
