Perhaps you are…
… preparing for an athletic or physical challenge.
… wanting to improve your posture.
… concerned about your future (or your child’s future).
… believing that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
… wanting to feel more connected to your body, or more energized.
… feeling like your body is aging too quickly.
… motivated to explore and expand your range of motion.
… not having much pain—you are simply uncomfortable.
If some of these things are true, then we should definitely talk.
I have worked with yoga teachers and beginning yoga students, hikers and gardeners, modern dancers, intercollegiate athletes, children, teens, runners and bicyclists, soccer players, and people who use a wheel chair or a walker.
See if you recognize yourself in this list:
… You are now retired and have more time to enjoy all the activities you love, but past injuries feel limiting and new pain symptoms worry you. You are too young to be feeling this old!
… You are a yoga teacher who wants some expert help opening a few restrictions that you’ve had for a long while. You want to find more balanced extension in your poses, and are hoping too that this new awareness will help you guide your students.
… You are a yoga student, and you’d like to find more joy in your practice. But some poses just give you trouble and aren’t that enjoyable. You want some help opening up your tight shoulders or hamstrings, or perhaps balancing out the “torque” in your hips.
… You are concerned about your child’s posture. Or your teen has been diagnosed with scoliosis. You want your kid to feel strong and agile and confident, and you want to help them avoid physical pain and worsening posture problems down the road.
… You are a competitive athlete who had an injury last season, and you don’t want it to hold you back this year. You are hoping that Structural Integration will help you recover your form and your resilience, and help you avoid future re-injury.
… You are recovering from a surgery (hip, spine, knee, breast) and you would like to remodel scar tissue, reduce pain, and restore mobility to whatever degree is possible.
… You are dealing with MS, and you want to maximize your quality of life, preserving function and mobility as much as you can.
… You have chronic pain—some have suggested it is fibromyalgia—and you have looked for ways to reduce the pain, get better sleep, have better energy, and lift your outlook on life. You hope the right kind of bodywork will help you turn the corner and feel better.

Testimonials“Kirstin has literally changed my life. I had been using a chiropractor for years, but my shoulders were still locked up and my hips were crooked, which caused a domino effect throughout my body. She straightened me out in a few sessions. My strength and balance improved dramatically. Now I visit her if I take a bad fall or something, and her magic hands have always helped me toward a speedy recovery. I can't recommend her highly enough.”
