When I have a client come to work with me for help with pain, Rossiter Stretching Technique (RST) is the first thing I consider to help them. Why? Because it works! it’s fast, it’s effective and it’s safe. And if I can help someone get out of pain quickly, that’s powerful! I strongly believe that if people could get out of pain and move better, the world would be a kinder, better place. I’m committed to bringing more awareness of RST to the northeastern states of the US and I'm excited to teach Massage Therapists, Pilates Instructors and others to help with the mission of getting people out of pain.
Not only is RST a technique that has powerful results for the client, it's also one of the kindest to my body as a bodyworker, saving me from the injuries manual work often can bring to a massage therapist. Rossiter Stretching helps me to help my clients better, allows me to vary the work I do in any given day, see more clients without hurting myself, prolong the life of my career and it's how I care for myself to reduce tightness and pain in my body. And I never get tired of the wide-eyed amazement, or the tears of relief, of a client who suddenly feels a major positive change in their body after one session.
