ABOUT US

Since 2001, we have worked with people of all ages from 4 hours old to over 90 years old. We have helped elite athletes stay healthy during training and competition, and helped them improve movement patterns that increased their performance in their respective sports. We have helped recreational athletes remain injury-free and develop more supportive movement patterns. Most often we work with people living everyday lives and dealing with the discomfort that is associated with the things we do most often: sitting, standing, walking, sleeping and exercising.

Gibney Siemion, M.S.

Certified Rolfer™
Rolf Movement Practitioner™

I found Rolfing® SI when knee and ankle pain became problematic in my athletic activities. The awareness that I gained from my first Rolfing series was transformative. I quickly returned to climbing, skiing and running but even more importantly, Rolfing brought my body up to date with who I was internally. I stood taller, performed better and felt more grounded than ever.

After becoming a Certified Rolfer in 2001, I completed the Rolfing Movement training in Ilhabela, Brazil. Crossing cultural and language barriers to pursue this additional training informed me as to how world-view and perception are translated into movement and postural patterns. Understanding how we perceive ourselves and relate with our environment naturally cross-pollinated my concomitant studies in ecological systems, as “connectedness” is central to the Greek root of ecology, Oikos.

Whether Rolfing is used to speed rehabilitation, improve athletic performance, decrease chronic pain or grow personally, it is my goal to help clients from diverse backgrounds release patterns of movement and perception that no longer allow the expression of their full potential. I enjoy helping clients develop a sense of empowerment and responsiveness to change while promoting their health, vitality and longevity in the activities they love.

My free time is spent adventuring under wide western skies on a mountain bike, skis, a climbing rope or boat. As often as possible, I escape to remote, wild places with my husband Justin, and children Orion and Elzada. I also work as a Riparian Ecologist and a Guide / Trip Leader for Canyon Explorations on the Colorado River in Grand Canyon.

Justin Salamon, M.A.

Certified Rolfer™

My first experience with Rolfing® SI was in 2000 when I was seeking help for chronic shoulder dislocations. I was an avid climber, backpacker and paddler working in the outdoor industry but injuries threatened my ability to continue my livelihood. My first ten series was transformative – walking was joyful in a way I had never experienced, breathing was effortless, my coordination improved and old pains disappeared. I realized that I needed to study Rolfing SI to understand the changes that had occurred in my body and to share the work with others.

For the past 17 years I have been privileged to practice Rolfing Structural Integration, and in the process help clients of all ages and backgrounds. I approach each session as an opportunity to understand the physical and psycho-biological patterns that make each client unique, and enjoy the challenge of helping each person become pain-free, embodied, and more comfortable in his/her everyday life. Rolfing fuels my passion for deepening my knowledge of the human body and the human experience through formal education and independent study.

When I am not Rolfing you can find me helping with the management of Canyon Explorations where we offer 13-18 day human powered river trips through Grand Canyon. I still get on the river as a Guide and Trip Leader but have more time to devote to Rolfing and management. My free time is spent running, mountain biking, skiing, kayaking, playing music with friends, cooking and otherwise loving my time with my incredible wife Gibby and our children Orion and Elzada. I feel fortunate to share my passions with Gibby and to develop our Rolfing knowledge together.
