Michael’s first introduction to Rolfing came as a client, when seeking help with a series of sports injuries and improvement of moderate scoliosis. His interest in the body began early as a result of these ailments and he began his college years on track to become a physical therapist. After experiencing the power of Rolfing as a client in Boulder during his early twenties, Michael shifted gears and quickly enrolled at The Rolf Institute® in 1998. Immediately following his graduation in 1999, he was invited to re-enter the classroom as a teaching assistant and has been involved with teaching in Rolfing and Continuing Education classes ever since.
After almost 20 years of study, Michael still has the same beginner’s excitement when it comes to exploring the art, science, theory, and practice of Rolfing. Through consistent study and continuing education classes with Rolfers, as well as with Physical Therapists, Chiropractors, Psychotherapists, and Movement/Rehab experts, Michael learns more about what is possible with this work each year. His enthusiastic curiosity of how people (and their bodies behave) fuels his passion for understanding how anatomy, physiology, movement, posture, pain, and healing potential all come together with this work.
