Through her practice, Kirstin is able to help clients find long-lasting relief from pain, discover life-changing improvements in posture, and ultimately move through life with greater energy and ease. She offers a gentle and specific approach to KMI Structural Integration through her specialization in neurofascial release. (In 2006, she began studying manipulation of peripheral nerves with Christoph Sommer. Since then she has also studied with Don Hazen and assisted Jon Martine in teaching neurofascial work).
Kirstin welcomes clients who are dealing with old injuries, chronic or recurring pain, and physical issues that haven’t been resolved through medical strategies, physical therapy, or massage. She also enjoys working with yoga practitioners and athletes who have specific training goals.
Her passion for working with clients is kindled by a love of experiential anatomy — she likes to explain what she is doing and sensing as she works, helping clients listen to, understand, appreciate, and gain new awareness of their bodies. Her own kinesthetic understanding of the body has developed through participation in martial arts, a variety of sports, and diverse physical work experiences. Her current exercise interests are yoga, contact improvisation, and ecstatic dance, and she appreciates watching all forms of dance and movement.
