ABOUT MARIE

My passion for healing began due to my own struggles with scoliosis and fibromyalgia. My back pain started when I was 13, and only kept getting worse until it made it difficult for me to have a normal work life.

 

I initially started working in a chiropractic office as a massage therapist and office manager in 1997, which was also the first time I experienced the possibility of alleviating pain through chiropractic care. It helped, but being a massage therapist long-term was difficult because I've my own issues.

 

After that, I pursued a corporate career. I loved it, but I was in too much pain to sit and focus on what I needed to do for my job. I got laid off, and it was the best thing to ever happen to me because it changed my trajectory completely. 

 

It allowed me time to receive Dr. Rolf’s 10 Series, which completely alleviated the constant pain I was feeling. I was inspired to give to other people what I now had - a future without pain. My true calling was helping clients manage and heal their pain as a massage therapist. 

 

I specifically chose the practice of Structural Integration, the work of Dr. Ida P Rolf, because I experienced first-hand the dramatic improvements in my own body. Motivated by my experience, I pursued this approach to help clients take responsibility for their own health and work towards a pain-free existence.

 

Through my extensive training of over 2,000 hours in bodywork, I apply my healing touch to a large and diverse client base in all matters of repetitive stress injuries. 

 

Whether you’re suffering from a sports injury, scoliosis, or autoimmune disorder, or just want to gain back maximum performance, you can also benefit from my advanced practice of the Rolfing 10 Series.
