GET ROLFED Gian Gibson, M.OMSc. Manual Osteopath, Certified Advanced Rolfer.

In my practice, I specialize in restoring physical function, offering relief, and educating for a pain-free life. Often people do not realize how misalignment and posture can cause numerous  health problems. Over the last 4 years I have put allot on hold to complete my Osteopathic training. I first learned about Osteopathy when I was in Boulder CO, training as a Rolfer many years ago. I picked up a book about Dr. Andrew Taylor Still , the founder of Osteopathy. I was amazed to read of the cures/treatment that seemed like miracles to me then. Now after many years of training and practice, I am a believer in  Principle based Osteopathy.

With over 18-year practice I am blessed to have patients that have reported amazing results from committing to the specialized treatments offered through my treatments. I am excited and grateful to be able to offer Principle Based Osteopathy. There have been outstanding responses from musicians, health care professionals, actors, elite dancers, yoga practitioners, massage therapists, athletes, as well as corporate professionals and the more mature population.

It is my focus to help people feel better. I connect on an honest and open level. I customize treatment to your need—to reduce pain and to restore structural/functional balance.

Chronic back pain, scoliosis, sciatica, carpal tunnel, nerve inflammation, rotator cuff pain, TMJ, pain recovery associated with injury and surgery are some issues that are relieved with this treatment. The positive results in my practice keep me passionate, enthusiastic, and convinced that I can help you!

When not in the office, I enjoy a variety of fitness undertakings and outdoor activities with my family.  Our young children keep us busy gardening and nurturing fruit trees. A favorite hobby is “food” – its planting, preparation, and preservation.
