I want to answer your questions and provide the information you are looking for. My goal is to give you straight forward information about Rolfing and the Laser Therapy services I provide. If you will click on any of the above categories I will guide you through this information. If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to give me a call or send me an email.I am a Certified Advanced Rolfer and an instructor for advanced Low Level Cold Laser Therapy. I have been in practice in Alaska since 1997. In order to accomplish the goals and objectives of Rolfing/Structural Integration, I am trained and certified to utilize Visceral Manipulation, various Cranial/Sacral Therapies, the FDA cleared Erchonia Low Level Cold Laser, the Erchonia Percussor and Adjustor, and a good number of other manual therapy techniques.I have been married to Martha since 1983. She is the business manager and the person you reach when you contact my clinic. In 1971 and 1973 I obtained two degrees from Oregon State University: a Bachelor of Science (BS) and a Master of Science (MS). In 1997 I graduated from the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration as a Certified Rolfer. In 2000 I completed my advanced training to become a Certified Advanced Rolfer. I am also a member of the Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals (ABMP) and Nationally Certified in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCTMB). I have taken a great many continuing education classes, including: all of the beginning and advanced trainings taught by Dr. Jerome Rerucha, a yearlong post graduate study with Dr. Jeff Spencer and Dr. Chu, President of Stanford University Physical Therapy Department. In addition I have also studied and continue to study with Dr. Dan Murphy who is the leading authority on toxins, chemical issues of disease and laser physics and physiology. I also co-teach with Dr. Jerome Rerucha whom I regard as the greatest laser doctor and teacher in the country. Since coming to Alaska in 1974, I have taught at the University of Alaska, worked for the State Department in International Affairs and Negotiations, owned and operated a national and international consulting company, commercial fished in most of Alaska’s fisheries, built three houses, produced two music books and caught lots and lots of salmon and trout. For the record I was born in Kansas and lived there until I was ten. We moved to Nebraska where I graduated from High school in ’67. I played football at Oregon State University, but am still a Cornhusker fan. Martha was born and raised in Iowa and we met in Juneau.I would like to continue the Rolfing/Laser Therapy, and teaching forever. It is as though my entire life has been a series of events; each designed to teach me something about life so that I can bring that experience to each and every client. I have had three extraordinary events in my life beginning with meeting Martha, becoming a Rolfer and learning about the laser. Please come to an appointment and see what it feels like to be on the receiving end of those discoveries.
