Richard was trained in KMI Structural Integration by Thomas Myers, Rolfer, in Visionary Cranio-Sacral Work by Hugh Milne, DO, and in Myofascial Release by John Barnes, PT. He was trained in the Perceptual/Tonic Function approach to Structural Integration by Hubert Godard, Rolfer; Monica Caspari, Rolfer; and Kevin Frank, Rolfer. He has trained with Susan Harper and Caryn McHose in movement-based approaches to perception and embodiment.
Richard has practiced therapeutic bodywork since 1997, working with clients who seek to facilitate life changes, improve posture and movement, or eliminate chronic pain. DeepRoots Myofascial Bodywork is dedicated to working on the foundation of the individual; hence the name “DeepRoots.” Richard believes that educating the client about their body and promoting self-awareness is just as important as the bodywork itself.
