Scoliosis Pain Treatments – participate in a case study!


Scoliosis Pain Treatments - participate in a case study!

Do you suffer from pain because of scoliosis?

If you live in or around Orlando, FL, and you are in your teens or twenties, you can be eligible to participate in a case study for scoliosis treatments.

I will reduce my fees for Rolfing Structural Integration for a few select individuals.

Please contact me through the Contact form on

Requirements are that you’ll provide me with recent X-rays, keep a daily journal about activities, exercises, and your pain levels.
I can only work with three more candidates this year, and hope to be able to start a bigger study next year.


P.S. right now I’m reading the story on The Curvy Spine. It’s moving me to tears. The state of health care and greedy practitioners that benefit from it infuriate me. I’m glad the author had been so stubborn in fighting for herself.

Try Crescent instead of Warrior I


Try Crescent instead of Warrior I

I’m struggling with Warrior I.  To get a more honest hip flexor stretch, I prefer using Crescent.
You can even use the pose to help with low back pain if you tend to overarch your lower back (hyperlordosis).

From Warrior I, lift the back heel, and bend the back knee so you can tuck the tailbone under. Pull the  belly in and up, that helps to support the lower back.
Then slowly start straightening the back knee, while keeping the position of the pelvis. You don’t need to straighten it completely, just as far as it will go without lifting the tailbone up.

You should feel a stretch in the front of the back leg’s thigh.

I’m working on a post that explains what role the hip flexors play in chronic back pain–please subscribe so you don’t miss it!
