My Journey

I have been a legal secretary for over 20 years and it was in 2017, I started suffering from repetitive strain in both hands.  I found the symptoms problematic enough that it interfered with my work, enjoyment of my sporting pursuits and my independence.  I no longer felt confident to rely on the strength in my arms. In my journey to help myself, I came across Rolfing® SI and it changed my life!

I decided to begin my rigorous and intensive training at the Dr Ida Rolf Institute in Boulder, Colorado and to complete my final phase, together with movement studies, with the Brazilian Association of Rolfing in Sao Paulo, Brazil.    

My Philosophy

Undergoing the Ten Series transformed my relationship with myself and my outlook.  I welcome the opportunity to be able to assist you to reach your goals, whether that is to manage your aches and pains, to improve your posture and movement or just a desire to feel healthier and more energetic. 

It is a wonderfully empowering and enriching experience as it allows you to be awakened sensorially and be mindful of your body.

MY Structural Integration

A body in balance

Some insightful quotes from Dr Ida P Rolf:

"Strength that has effort in it is not what you need;  you need the strength that is the result of ease."

"When the body gets working appropriately, the force of gravity can flow through, then spontaneously, the body heals itself"
