How I came to Rolfing®?
My name is Lisa Branic, the founder of b-ALIGNED Rolfing®. I was working in the corporate world developing project management capabilities and leading project management offices for organizations. I suffered from chronic back pain, the kind that put me on the kitchen floor for 3 days at a time. I tried everything like physical therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, etc. It would get better for a while but it would always return. I discovered Rolfing® in 2009 and it changed my life. There were no more days spent on my back on the kitchen floor. This is why I decided to become a Rolfer™, so that I could give this experience and freedom to others.
What’s in the name b-ALIGNED Rolfing®?
Throughout this journey I have come to realize that “alignment” is my life’s purpose and this starts with aligning the body. One of the primary goals of Rolfing® is to realign the various segments of the body so that you no longer need to struggle to stand tall or sit up straight. The b-ALIGNED Rolfing® tagline is: “Decrease Pain, Improve Posture. Feel better.” I have a pragmatic approach and am interested in providing you services, tools and knowledge to help you live your best life.
