Are you tired of that chronic back or neck pain? Would you like to move better and feel stronger? Would you like to have a pain free and fluid body?

Structural Integration is a form of hands on soft tissue bodywork and movement education that improves your body’s ability to move freely. Think of taking your car in for a “tune up”. Structural Integration is just that for your body!

I specialise in chronic pain and Rehabilitation after surgery.

Benefits of Structural Integration
* Relief from Chronic Pain and Sciatica
* Rehabilitation following Surgery
* Non-surgical reversal of Scoliosis
* Frozen shoulder relief
* Improved posture
* Greater ease of movement, fluidity, and efficiency.
* Increased flexibility and balance
* Increased levels of energy & alertness
* Decreased stress and tension
* Increased confidence.

‘After a car accident 2 years ago, I had to have surgery on my shoulder to repair a rotator cuff tear. Raising it above my head was near impossible and it was a painful process. I had seen many physiotherapists for 1.5 years to which none had helped.
After one session of Rolfing I could raise my arm above my shoulder and with consequent sessions, I now have the full range of motion back and my shoulder and it is pain free’.

Great work Chris and thank you very very much. Kate Whitten

I have been practicing Structural Integration (sometimes known as Rolfing®) after graduating in 2000. I trained intensively in the U.S. under Senior Advanced Certified Rolfer Andy Crow, who sadly, has passed away May 2019. Dr Rolf called her work Structural integration but her students nicknamed it Rolfing.

I ran a private practice in San Francisco, Ca. for 5 years and then traveled the world, working with people from the Middle East and now I live back in New Zealand.

I also partake in another activity; I take people on tours with Wild Earth Expeditions. You can visit this website if you are interested in reading more about tours and travel times to remote destinations throughout the world.

Client’s Testimonials:

Larry Dossey, MD, best-selling author
“There is one major reason to take Rolfing seriously: it works. Not only can it dramatically change people’s bodies, it can transform their lives as well. Rolfing is powerful stuff.”

Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, a board-certified Internist and head of a fibromyalgia research clinic in Annapolis, MD, says “rolfing is a very powerful tool, and a very important tool for me to have for my patients. People who have suffered from chronic pain for 20 years will be amazed at how their pain goes away.”

“I send my patients to Chris to receive Structural Integration sessions as it is a whole body approach rather than  treating symptoms”.
Dr. Blumberg GP, Auckland N.Z

“Having lived with back chronic pain for a long time I had tried lots of therapies. Then I found Chris. Only after a few sessions of Structural Integration, I had more flexibility and range of motion and I could move easier. I now live without chronic back pain after completing the 10 series. I feel like I have been given a new lease on life !”
