Hi, I’m Livia, Registered Massage Therapist, Rolf Structural Integration Practitioner, and the founder of Mobility Junkie. My mission is to help high performance athletes keep their bodies in peak condition, so they can push their limits and stay injury free.
I danced professionally for over 15 years, pushed my body to its breaking point daily and was often dependent on bodywork to keep myself going. I tried many therapies that helped but nothing made as profound or lasting change as the Rolf Method of Structural Integration. The results I experienced were so profound that I made a bold decision to become a Rolf Structural Integration Practitioner in 2013. I had the opportunity to study with the late and Rolfer Emmett Hutchins, Dr. Ida Rolf’s first appointed teacher.
Soon after, I got a position in a Crossfit Gym and I now have been working with hundreds of high performance athletes. Many of them are desk bound for most of the day and suffer from pain and decreased mobility due to poor work posture and prolonged sitting. Compound this with complex movements and heavy weight and you have a recipe for disaster. Being a crossfitter myself, I understand the effects of training on the body and have developed an individual approach to correcting imbalances to optimize function and performance.
I’ve had the privilege of treating athletes at the 2016 and 2017 East Regionals in Albany, NY and look forward to contributing to their performance at higher levels year after year with more tools and knowledge to support them. Becoming an RMT in addition to a Rolf Structural Integration practitioner has allowed me to help many more athletes in addition to offering more options to my clients.
My 6-week mobility workshop for crossfit athletes sold out so be sure to look for upcoming program dates. I strongly believe that it’s never too late to be happy, healthy and mobile regardless of your age or activity level.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you to gain the health and mobility that your life demands.
