Eliminate Tightness, Increase Mobility, Reduce Pain
I practice a form of active myofascial stretching that produces fast pain relief and increased functional range of motion, influenced by the work of Certified Advanced Rolfers Richard Rossiter and Thomas Myers, as well as a number of other bodywork & movement professionals.
Each session focuses on one problem area or related areas, working actively with you to resolve many soft-tissue pain and mobility issues.
We work together to find and resolve the root cause and create an effective maintenance and prevention plan to prolong those results.
Initial Session: 30 min / $50
Brief history, quick eval, 20 min hands on time, quick wrap. Gives you a good intro to the work I offer. Might be all you need, depending on your issues.
Follow-On Session: 40 min / $60
More movement eval, time to learn self-care techniques after hands on work.
In-depth Eval: 50 min / $70
Special session for those with deeply embedded issues to maximize results.
Quick Relief: Group Session
$20 per person - 2-4 people
Session length depends on number of participants.
This takes work. If you put 100% effort into your first session and don't experience any improvement, you don't pay for that session. Period.
In addition to relieving and resolving soft tissue tightness and pain, this work can help you maximize your range of motion for peak performance and reduce the chance of injury, as well as increase flexibility and functional mobility.
Dress comfortably as you would for a workout. We generally work on a padded platform or mat on the floor. All you remove are your shoes, so wear your nice socks. :-)

After five years of working under the business name "Rossiter Stretching" in western Colorado, I am transitioning my private practice name to activbodywork, reflecting the changes in my approach. I am co-located with As You Wish, Pool and Spa in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. Call me to see if this might be the pain relief and mobility improvement solution you've been searching for.
