Prior to becoming a Certified Advanced Rolfer, George was a firefighter in Illinois. As a firefighter he was able to help people in their time of need, much like the work he does today with his PTX Therapy & Rolfing clients.
George retired to Southwest Florida in 2011. He believes other retirees also deserve to be able to enjoy retirement free from pain and to live as functional of a life as possible. His passion is to help as many of those people as possible with those goals.
George has a unique skill set in that he combines his extensive knowledge about the human body and provides a combined therapeutic approach, using rolfing and PTX posture therapy in tandem with his clients.
A certified Rolfer learns to recognize and release fascial patterns. Rolfers learn the basic ten session series in this stage of education which releases these restrictions from the outside in. Rolfing changes these patterns or restrictions by manipulation of the fascia. George is certified as an advanced Rolfer, which is the top level of certification for a Rolfer. The instruction covers more complex structural patterns such as scoliosis. The post ten series (after the initial Rolfing series) is addressed at this level as well as many soft tissue techniques to treat the bony components of the structure.
George is also an advanced myoskeletal therapist. This therapy addresses the soft tissue by manipulation much like Rolfing. It looks at the patterns in terms of the way it affects the bones and seeks to balance muscular imbalances that make the body dysfunctional.
George then uses PTX Posture Therapy to prescribe structural exercises. These sequences are unique from general physical therapy or exercise since they change full body structural patterns.
