Improve your posture and release your tension to look your best
Free yourself so you can do all the things you want to do with your life
I am a board-certified Structural Integration (S.I.) practitioner ready to support you in exploring and releasing any patterns of injury, stress, trauma, and pain so that you can live the life you want to live.
For me, working with clients is about building a partnership. Each session offers specialized, therapeutic bodywork and movement to balance and organize your body to be more efficient, adaptable, and pain-free.
I look forward to working with you!

Though both include hands-on bodywork, Structural Integration work focuses on whole-body balance including changes in your posture, movement, and physical/emotional experience through education, awareness, and therapeutic touch. The focus is on how you relate with your physical experience as a whole person—rather than on any particular body part, experience, or state of mind.
Yes and no, Dr. Ida Rolf created the process of Structural Integration but some people started calling it "Rolf"ing based on her name.

Pain is never the goal. The goal is to get out of pain and tension. I partner with you to find the amount of pressure that is both comfortable and will encourage a process of release that offers the beneficial and enduring results you are looking for. You are in the driver's seat when it comes to your experience.
You can, but the full benefit of this work is best experienced through the Balanced Body series. The human body has layers and we work slowly and deliberately, layer by layer, to bring the body back into alignment and efficiency.
I suggest making an appointment for the Introductory Session to see how you feel about the work and you can decide from there.
As there is more movement involved in Structural Integration sessions than in other types of bodywork, I recommend underwear/short shorts/loose-fitting athletic shorts and bras/bralettes/bandeaus. Combine these suggestions into an outfit that feels the most comfortable for you and your body.
My office is located at 315 Wall St. #10. Please be aware that Wall St. has metered parking. It is a new type of meter that covers the whole block so plan to give yourself a little time to get it all squared away. There may be free spaces and more straightforward meters available a few blocks away.
I accept cash, check, credit card, and Venmo.
I follow all health and safety protocols to protect the health of my clients and the community. I am vaccinated and will wear a mask during sessions where our faces are closer together. You are welcome to wear a mask if you would like and I will also wear one for all sessions if you prefer. I have a HEPA filter running at all times. I clean and sanitize between clients. If you have had contact with someone found positive for COVID-19 or if you have any of the symptoms, I will work with you to reschedule your appointment.
