Brad’s Approach to Rolfing®

Rolfing is all about changing patterns to achieve balance. Initially, Brad tried Rolfing to treat an injury, and was surprised by the impact it had on his life; it helped him realize that he needed to make some changes in his life, one being a career change. Brad’s career move is founded in a passion to make a difference by encouraging people to know their bodies, thus enhancing each person’s growth physically and emotionally.

Having worked in the corporate world, as well as the non-profit space, Brad has been exposed to many different work styles, lifestyles and people. This perspective allows him to interact with people in an approachable manner that is not intimidating, elitist, or too new age.

In his Rolfing practice, he strives to find the options that work best for each person. Brad’s approach is guided by several principles:

  • Trust (create a safe, trusting environment)
  • Practicality
  • Simplicity
  • Fun, Humor
  • Flexible and open-minded approach
  • Communication (listen, explain before doing)
  • Expertise (knowledge of the body and movement)

Brad’s Rolfing practice was featured in recent articles that appeared in the Seattle Times and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
