“After 10 years as an active personal trainer, I still encountered stiffness and pain from scoliosis. Yoga, weightlifting, stretching, running, physical therapy, chiropractic, massage, scoliosis exercises- nothing really helped. I was profoundly impacted by the sense of feeling a prisoner in my body, instead of supported and comfortable in it.
My pelvis was twisted, breathing was shallow, sleep was poor: I always was uncomfortable.
“While working a BS in Health and Human Performance, I was prepping to enter into a chiropractic or physical therapy program. In my case, it was all just bells and whistles, smoke and mirrors- no real solutions.
I stumbled on “Structural Integration” during a google search. I decided to give the 10-Series a chance as a last result, and was shocked to find that I actually felt different and better after each session. More than that, the results seemed to last, and I began feeling exponentially better with the “10 Series” of Structural Integration. I’m thankful to say that, for me, the results have still stuck with me years later. I had no idea it was possible to feel this good.
Today, my body feels better than it did as a teenage. I don’t feel trapped in my body anymore- I feel freed by it! I’ve seen it transform me and dozens of others firsthand and give us our lives back! This is my passion and what I was put on Earth to practice and share with you.”
