Rolfing and Massage

sarah@discoverrolfing.com | discoverrolfing.com

After having experienced the wonderful benefits of bodywork during my injury recovery after many mountain biking and snowboarding injuries while growing up in Steamboat Springs; compounded by a car accident at 19 that compressed my spine… I received my first 10 series of Rolfing®. Growing up in a health conscious environment with parents in the bodywork field, and having experienced such a transformative healing process myself, it seemed only natural for me to enter into this fantastic field.

I graduated from Cortiva Institute of Massage Therapy and became licensed in ‘06. I then fine tuned my therapeutic skills by completing Rolfing® training at the Rolf® Institute of Structural Integration in Boulder, CO.

Bodywork has been crucial in maintaining my quality of life, and I look forward to sharing the benefits of this amazing work with you.

Prior to entering psychology, I was an undergraduate film major at the University of Kansas (Rock Chalk Jayhawk) who loved characters and dialogue and wanted to understand what made folks do the things they do.  I graduated and moved to Los Angeles to make movies, but eventually realized it is people’s real stories and helping them find their way that is my real calling in this life. 

I moved to Chicago and attended the Illinois School of Professional Psychology and graduated with a masters and doctorate in Clinical Psychology.   I have now been a psychologist the past 11 years and worn a variety of hats along the way (therapist, manager, training director, adjunct professor) with my goal in all of these roles to be honest, transparent, emphatic, and collaborative.

I have worked with a lot of folks and have experience using many therapies, but what I’ve really learned is that each person has a unique story and needs someone to help them find the next direction to take it.  I’ve also discovered my own solutions in life have often come when I am outdoors and notice how nature helps me feel free and open to new ideas.  This is the reason for Active Talks: to create a safe place to have honest conversations while moving together in a natural environment.

Ana combines evidence-based approaches and therapeutic yoga to guide her clients towards healing and embodying their authentic selves in every area of their lives. 

Ana earned her master’s degree in social work in 2011. She spent the past several years working with Veterans at the VA Medical Center and focuses on helping others heal from trauma, depression, and anxiety, and working with members of the LGBTQ+ community.

As a bodyworker and energetic healer, I am incredibly honored to provide therapeutic sessions for my clients. My goal is to help the mind-body-spirit connection ease back into balance and alignment.

When our experience of life is different from the way we wish it to be, stress exists. The bigger this difference, the higher its stress. And long term chronic stress leads to disease - heart disease, compromised immunity, sleep/eating/mood disorders, …the list goes on. How do we get off this self-destructive treadmill, stop choking down the stress and longing for life to somehow change itself?  Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy helps bypass the distractions of the mind by exploring direct experience through yoga-like embodied awareness. Non-directive dialog focuses this awareness on what is most relevant to our life, and guided integration distills it into a key “ah-ha!” with one do-able action step.  Bev Johnson is a Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapist and Group Facilitator specializing in serving those suffering from the effects of life stress. She is a Training Program Director at the Phoenix Rising School of Yoga Therapy and serves on staff at the International Association of Yoga Therapists.
