As a teenager, Andrew Browder enjoyed playing soccer and wrestling—at least until he began to suffer pain in his knees and feet. He ended up in the office of an orthopedic surgeon, who didn't seem to understand his ailments and couldn't offer a solution. A decade passed before Andrew made his first appointment with a rolfing therapist. Almost immediately, the pain he had been feeling for years began to dissipate and his posture improved.
At his own rolfing practice, Andrew treats patients with the same techniques that did so much for his own health. During sessions, he manipulates the body's connective tissues, gently realigning joints with a focus on the entire body as opposed to the source of symptoms. Patients often visit because of one particular issue, such as an injury or posture thrown askew by a childhood spent sailing the high seas, but Andrew's treatments seek to restore all-around balance.
