Deanna Melnychuk's mission is to recalibrate the human body. As a certified advanced rolfer, she scouts for gravity's compressing effects on connective tissues, and unwinds fascia that have shortened due to tension. With sessions that focus on complete body realignment including areas such as the lower back, legs, and neck, she plies stiffness from muscles as clients conduct synchronized motions. Each appointment aims to enhance flexibility while subtracting physical and mental stress.
Deanna also guides clients through Rolfing Movement Integration—a program that identifies potentially inefficient ways of moving and helps explore alternatives. After a walking analysis, she points out established habits such as hunching or sliding on your back when your legs get tired. She then assists in setting a goal for new modes of getting around that can increase comfort and range of motion.
