Philosophy

My goal is to empower each client by teaching them about their body and how to walk in alignment in order to maintain health and independence into old age.

Why I do what do

I got hurt.  I went in search of “what works”.  These are the things I found that brought me authentic, long-term healing.  I love that I get to “pay it forward”.

Personal facts

I love living in Ojai.  My daughter is 26, my son, 24.  I love to bead, sing and put puzzles together, not necessarily at the same time, but often simultaneously.

Training

Five years apprenticeship in the John F. Barnes Myofascial Release Technique with Ronelle Wood at OHM/Sanctuary.

Philosophy

I don’t guarantee miracles but I expect them.

Why I do what I do

After suffering from many years of debilitating back pain, I became an instant believer in this work from just one session with Ronelle. Myofascial Release combined with True Body Alignment are the real deal. We see amazing results in a short period of time.

Personal facts

I am the proud papa of a wonderful 10 year old little woman.  I love hiking, sun, music and serenity.

The body work I received from Ronelle Wood was exceptional. I have had some great work done, but this helped my body on an entirely different level. I highly recommend Ronelle to anyone looking to make a real, lasting change. She is the best!!

I have been a student of the Ojai Healing Movement about 4 or 5 months only going once a week to the Friday class which is an hour and a half and quite a workout for me. My body has so improved from these classes that I finally went for a private session with Ronelle. I thought she would work with me helping to pick out some stretching positions specific to my body. What a surprise to learn that she was going to do Myofascial Release on me at the same time. For years my lumber area has always felt like the muscles around the spine are constricted and I can never get them to relax no matter what I have done to achieve that. I told Ronelle this, and she magically helped my body out of this constant constriction.

She broke the patterning that I could not do myself. It is hard to find the right words to describe the improvements that have taken place since attending the Body Alignment classes. I can say that my body feels so toned and strengthened and there are areas that have become completely free of habitual constrictions from repetitive work positions like sitting and using a computer and mouse daily, 8 hours a day for years. I have been able to clear so much blockage in my arms and knots in my back that have been there for YEARS! Not to mention correcting my alignment and how I walk.

Ronelle is so knowledgeable, communicative and fun it has been a great joy to use this information to re-educate my body to how it once felt back when I took it all for granted. I highly recommend the True Body Alignment classes and a private session to really hone into your particular problem areas. I so appreciate you Ronelle and send my very best wishes for you and the work you are doing.
