Patty began her career in the healing arts as a massage therapist, graduating from the Sommerset School of Massage Therapy in New Jersey in 2002. In 2006 she started her journey at the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration after receiving her 10 series. She became a Certified Rolfer™ in 2007 after graduating from the Rolf Institute® of Structural Integration in Boulder, Colorado. Since then she has seen clients from all walks of life, from runners and cyclists, to business professions, people suffering from chronic pain or illness, parents, expecting mothers, kids and babies as young as 8 weeks old. Patty is constantly working to continue to educate herself and bring her clients better results. She has studied CranioSacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation, and Nerve Mobilization, to name a few, and has even completed a 200-hour teacher's certification in Hatha Yoga. In 2016 she also completed her Advanced Training with Jan Sultan, one of Dr. Ida Rolf's original students. She feels the best part of her job is seeing clients experience less pain, finding more possibilities in their bodies, and watching that newfound ease and freedom of movement translate into their life off the table.
Rolfing® Structural Integration works by using mild pressure to release fascial holdings, fascia are connective tissues that surround every organ, muscle, nerve, bone, and blood vessel in the body, to return muscles to a healthy level of contraction. This allows for the body to gain proper posture, support, mobility, and balance free of pain. Rolfing® is for everyone, however, those suffering from physical pain or injury, athletes, or those who work physically demanding jobs can find great relief from this practice. Many people find that emotional trauma and repressed memories may surface and be released, leading to even deeper balance in the physical and emotional body.
