Gibney Siemion, M.S.
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.
