Rolfing is a system of deep body manipulation and movement education. It is a sophisticated technique for lengthening, aligning and ordering the human body in the gravitational field.

Rolfing facilitates the balancing and re-alignment of the body structure, or posture. By releasing strain and tension in the connective tissues, we can reverse unhealthy twists, torsions and misalignments throughout the musculoskeletal system, thereby improving posture, reducing pain, and creating a new sense of freedom in the body.

Through Rolfing, a client can expect to achieve an enhanced sense of ease, efficiency, and elegance in everyday movement, whether it is in walking or sitting, the performance of physical work, the endeavors of the artistic, or the more challenging pursuits of a performer or athlete.


Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is highly effective in treating: headaches, migraines, TMJ-issues, sinus congestion, nerve pain, and autonomic nervous system imbalances. Through supportive touch in and around the cranium, spinal column and sacrum, we can enhance and harmonize the movement of fluids and cranial bones. Held and supported, the body can express its subtle, mysterious rhythms and be guided to a deeper sense of balance. In its depth, subtlety, and gentleness, craniosacral therapy can be highly restorative and transformational, allowing the body to reconnect with its own healing and self-organizing powers.



I am a Certified Advanced Rolfer, in private practice since 1989. If you are injured, in pain, or feel limited and restricted in your body, I can help you. I have extensive training in the evaluation and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and imbalances, and can help reduce pain and discomfort, while restoring good structural alignment in your body.

As a professional dancer and movement teacher, with over 20 years of experience, I have acquired specific skills for working successfully with performers and athletes. I have a deep respect for the healing process, and its transformative potential, and can offer an approach to health that goes beyond bringing temporary relief from pain and discomfort.

Working together we can re-shape and re-educate your body, to create a deeper sense of embodiment, allowing you to move with more grace and ease.
