Thanks for visiting my site. I have been working in the fitness and personal training profession for over 19 years. Before I opened Functional Fitness in 2008, I was a personal trainer working in San Francisco, California. During this time I began to develop back and shoulder pain. I tried many different methods including massage, chiropractors and physical therapists etc. These seemed to help for a bit but my pain always came back. A colleague of mine introduced me to the Egoscue Method which is the world leader in non-medical pain relief .
During these sessions I learned that treating the symptom would not stop the problem. I was taught that I had to treat the body as a whole and not just focus on where it hurt. This was a game changer for me and I pursued my certification with the Egoscue University to become a Postural Alignment Therapist in 2004.
In January of 2008 I opened Functional Fitness, a personal training studio which focuses on postural therapy to help clients become pain free and move without limitations. Over the past 12 years I have been fortunate to work with many different people of all ages and fitness levels to relieve chronic pain and move and feel better. I believe the foundation to good health begins with having good posture and being free of chronic pain.
