Proven Remedies And Treatments
For many years, Robert had struggled with one hip that was higher than the other, which resulted in significant health challenges. As time went on, walking became tiring and sometimes painful. He also had pronounced forward head posture that contributed to upper body stress and headaches.
When Robert first heard of the amazing results people were getting from Rolfing (also known as Structural Integration), and saw the before and after photographs in Ida Rolf’s book, Rolfing, The Integration of Human Structures, he set out to find a practitioner of this potent art.
Receiving the traditional 10-session Rolf series, Robert found that his old postural patterns and their associated aches and pains completely resolved. In addition, he experienced a new sense of ease and lift that made being in his body a joy.
Knowing that his life path needed to include being a Rolf practitioner, he looked for ways to meet the prerequisites for admission to training. Toward that end, Robert registered at the Health Enrichment Center, and completed the massage therapy curriculum in 1990. From 1991 through 1995 Robert operated a successful massage therapy practice at the Fairlane Club in Dearborn, Michigan.
In 1995, Robert went on to study at the Guild for Structural Integration in Boulder, Colorado. At the Guild, he had the good fortune of studying with Ida Rolf’s two senior proteges. In 2001 Robert took seven weeks off from his practice to take coursework towards Advanced Training in Structural Integration. Additionally, he has taken specialized training in the use of Rolf bodywork for scoliosis.
After fourteen years of practice, and having taken more than 1200 clients thru the 10-session series, Robert was asked what he finds most compelling about his work with Structural Integration. He answered, “Watching my clients change before my eyes, … watching life-long postural and structural problems disappear, … seeing their amazement as their breathing dramatically improves in the first session, and the smiles on their faces as they get off the table and find the pain and limitations they came in with, gone or significantly improved.”
In addition to his Rolf Training, Robert has been trained in Comprehensive Energy Psychology (including EFT and TAT). He has developed the Higher Self Repatterning Process for clearing out old emotional and karmic patterns quickly.
