After a lifetime of injuries and experiences, your body is lying to you about what movements are actually safe to do. I help remind your body of its factory settings by helping you move better.
My goal is to help you get your pain free and active life back. Whether it’s a long-awaited backpacking trip without distracting pain, effortlessly get down on the ground to garden or play with your grandchildren, or to hold back aches and pains in the future. I use movement to empower you to pay attention to what your body is doing and telling you. By providing individualized exercises with clear intentions and developing your conceptual understanding of your body’s machinery, I want you to learn to work with your body instead of fighting against it.
Your body is a reflection of every injury, hobby, job and emotion you’ve had. When you get injured or learn a new skill, your clever body adapts how it moves. 10,000 steps a day over many years means those patterns are ingrained. Your body deletes access to movements that once hurt. They are ‘greyed out’ by your nervous system as if they don’t exist. Alleviating aches and pains and preventing recurring injuries requires resetting your body’s movement factory settings by reminding you of how you can move. Then letting your body decide if access to more movement feels better.
When I give my clients’ bodies better movement choices, they tell me they instantly start to feel lighter and taller, find better alignment, relieve areas of compression or tension, and get a spring in their step.
My wish is for you to keep doing the activities you enjoy because your body has more ease and less pain. I want to help you understand why your body feels the way it does by inspiring your curiosity about how your body works and what it needs from you. You will be empowered with your own toolbox to recognize your unique early warning signs of your symptoms and keep yourself well without needing me anymore.

"I can't believe that such small adjustments are adding up to what seems to be a permanent change in my body. I have even started walking without the orthotics I have relied on for the past 10 years..." BJ Clayden
