I am A Rolfing practitioner, certified by the British Academy of Rolfing and Structural Integration, where training is accredited by the European Rolfing Association, Munich (ERA) and the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration, Boulder, Colorado (RISI).
I am also a contemporary dancer, and someone who has been through the Rolfing process to recover from trauma. Rolfing helped me to better understand my body and how I interact with the world around me; how to sit at a desk, how to improve my running, swimming and dancing techniques, how to reduce my vulnerability to injury, build resilience, productive relationships and find more grace in my posture and movement.
Each Rolfer approaches Rolfing from a point of view that reflects their own interests, skills and values. I also hold a degree in Art History and Curatorship, I am a daily mediator - a practise which helps centre me, I hold a diploma in fine art, play the flute very badly, and I am Artistic Director of Ensemble dance company. The academic, physical and emotional demands of my background and my personal interests are all useful in helping me to help you.
We find strength in realising how gravity affects our bodies, there is no use in fighting it or being submissive. I give my clients the space and freedom to explore this relationship, and understand their challenges so that we can work on finding solutions. Before, during and after treatment, I am always available to discuss concerns or thoughts.
