Rolfing & Manual Therapy

Nuria’s ongoing study of anatomy serves as an inspiration to her work as a healing practitioner. Her focus and strength lies within the structural, tensional, and myofascial perspective. Her study of joint coordinations informs her touch and approach.

Nuria is a profound and inquisitive healer.  She has deep and well rounded knowledge of the functionality of the body, and intuitive touch guiding the perpetual use and viability of keeping systems in balance and in motion.  I am a devotee of her work and always look forward to our sessions to maintain as much mobility as I ask from my dancing, moving, working body. Often painful, always effective, I don’t want to recommend Nuria to anyone, so that she always has room on her schedule for me!

- Evie Ladin, Musician and Dancer

Nuria is a teacher and healer that never stops pursuing more understanding of the human body. She has gathered so much information over the years, which is priceless to have her as a resource here in the Bay Area.
I had the honor to work with Nuria over the past 9 years, I have experienced both her teachings and received body work sessions from her. If you really want to understand more about your body, I highly recommend Nuria as your guide on this fascinating journey.

- Shira Yaziv, movement teacher and owner of The Athletic Playground, Emeryville
