If you've tried various methods with only temporary relief, it's time to try something new. I know what it feels like to try everything and still feel bad. In fact, that is how I first came to try Structural Integration.
I promise you, you can feel better.
Structural Integration is not just a one-and-done treatment or exercises and stretches that don't really do the trick. Each S.I. session integrates manual bodywork and movement education, working in tandem to realign your entire body naturally and give you new movement and posture options.
I'm committed to being your partner in this journey. If you're ready for significant, meaningful, and enduring change, Structural Integration is for you.
Schedule an Introductory appointment today. Your path to feeling better can start right now.
Align your body and release your stress and patterns to feel better every day
Improve your posture and release your tension to look your best
Free yourself from pain patterns 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 in the 70s some people started calling it "Rolf"ing based on her name. Then, that term became trademarked so only graduates from one program can use the term if they pay yearly. The two terms are often used interchangeably by the public.
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 10-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.
