ABOUT SANDY SCHNEIDER, CERTIFIED ADVANCED ROLFER®
Born and raised in Tacoma, Washington, Sandy Schneider has the soul of a Pacific Northwesterner. She loves all aspects of nature and the outdoors, especially the benefits outdoor activity can bring to the body.
Sandy has a Master of Science (M.S.) in psychology from Western Washington University and a Master of Social Work (M.S.W.) from Portland State University. She graduated in 1996 from the Rolf Institute® of Structural Integration in Boulder, Colorado, and received her movement certification in 1998. She earned her certification as an Advanced Rolfer® in 2000.
Sandy has a life-long passion for wellness and healing. She teaches yoga part-time, is an avid skier and hiker, and brings the sense of peace she receives from these activities to her Rolfing practice. She likes to move slowly and gently during her Rolfing sessions, believing this relaxing approach to be very effective. She says, “If I am in pain from something someone is doing to me, I will tighten up to resist that pain. I assume others react like I do. So I don't want to work in any manner that will cause a client pain. In a Rolfing session, I want the work I do to relax and loosen the muscles, not tighten them. This helps the client achieve optimum benefit from the session.”
In addition to helping clients improve their posture, flexibility, and athletic performance, Sandy has experience helping clients with a number of painful conditions. These include: back, neck, shoulder, hip, knee, ankle, and elbow pain; arthritis, sciatica, scoliosis, carpal tunnel syndrome, strains and sprains, fibromyalgia, repetitive stress syndrome, scars, headaches, whiplash, and plantar fasciitis.
Sandy established her practice in 1996. Her business currently is located in Renton, Washington.
