WHO IS TIM ROODE?
Tim Roode practices the Ida P. Rolf Method of Structural Integration because he believes it is the most effective means to achieving postural balance and physical awareness. It is through this balance and awareness, triggered by skillful tissue manipulation, that an individual can radically change his or her fundamental ease of movement.
Tim finds that his clients' responses range from "I feel different in my body" to "I can do things that I was never able to do before". He interprets this as the consequence of the application of his training in the Rolf Method of Structural Integration.
Clients approach Tim Roode with everyday stress, accident-generated discomfort and chronic pain issues from both occupational and unknown sources. The client-specific process begins with a thorough explanation of the kind of treatment appropriate, and the number of visits most suitable to the circumstances.
Initially graduating in 1996 from the Muscular Therapy Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Tim Roode specialized in sports massage and deep tissue therapy, and in 2000, he received his certification in the Rolf method of Structural Integration from the Guild of Structural Integration in Boulder, Colorado. In 2006, Timothy completed the Advanced Rolf Certification.
Tim has been featured on Chronicle and WB's 10 o'clock news, in addition to the Boston Magazine, Boston Globe, Boston Herald and the Improper Bostonian.
Tim took part in the first of its kind NIH funded clinical trial, evaluating the effect of structural integration on back pain. Positive results of the study are published in Evidence Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine.
