A well-thought-out, powerful 1:1 program for pain recovery and feeling better, with a focus on helping you master the specific skills + tools you need.

RE/ST FOUNDATIONS

A two-month 1:1 program for pain recovery.

The RE/ST Method™ is about new abilities and experiences that make you feel better.

Each of the four pillars of the program is research-backed, and personalized to you.

RE-SET ENERGIZE STABILIZE + STRENGTHEN TRANSFORM

RE-SET

  • Find a best, safe resting position that you can stay in comfortably.

  • Distinguish between “bad pain” and other sensations (like unfamiliar muscles working), so you know when to back off and when to keep exploring.

  • Set clear goals (and milestones) for your pain recovery, based on detailed structural observation, postural and movement assessments, and personal wellness history and profile.

  • Begin your back pain recovery with the right, soothing floor- and chair-based postures sequenced for you from therapeutic yoga and somatics.

  • Use your breath and attention in a new way, and create a relaxation response that promotes healing.

  • See and shift the movement and lifestyle habits that have been limiting your fitness and recovery.

  • Incorporate simple, additional “stealth” portable body-mind tools into your daily routine to re-set anywhere you are whether you’re at home, work or traveling.

“The fresh start I craved to untangle my pain puzzle and feel better, finally.”

energize

  • Apply the “vagal brake” to move from hyped and wiped to aptly energized.

  • Retrain your breath to decrease inflammation, boost oxygenation and physical performance, and improve mental focus.

  • Build your body sensing and proprioceptive skills to decrease fatiguing pain.

  • Begin dynamic, functional movements drawn from therapeutic yoga sequences to complement your re-set restorative practice, and ignite your energy.

  • Discern sleep and rest deficits/strengths, and build a purposeful routine to sleep better and be more rested. (I’ll supply you with a custom, five-item sleep/energy kit with gear to support you here.)

  • Determine simple daily choices (and opportunities) that conserve and build energy and stamina, like how and when you exercise, eat, and play. Stop numbing out and start checking in.

The progress was not overnight but over weeks with a careful combination of behavior changes and daily movements that reduced pain triggers, improved strength and gave me confidence to become more active.

stabilize + strengthen

  • Experience how body strength begins with the breath, from the inside out.

  • Develop the deepest layers of inner belly muscles that hold you up.

  • Master “low and slow” movements that grow the intelligence of slow-twitch, stabilizing muscles. Access the “deep front line” of the body, muscles and connective tissue, with fluidity so you can sustain action.

  • Replace unhelpful “crunching” and “stretching” with new ways of moving, to engage the diaphragm, transversus abdominis, multifidae, and other vital yet often deconditioned muscles. Align your standing, walking or running around a steady, strong center.

  • Master core breathing techniques to tone the diaphragm and (literally) support the spine, relieving upper body “accessory muscles” of incorrect (and often pervasive) breath patterns that can worsen back and neck tension.

  • Identify and remedy the key structural imbalance and standing/sitting postural habits that are contributing to your particular pain and tension pattern.

  • Find and reinforce a confident, strong stance or seat without being stuck or rigid in ways that exacerbate tension and pain.

With Rachel’s guidance, I released painful patterns of holding and learned new ways of moving. I have become stronger in ways that are subtly but deeply empowering. I feel energized in my body and grateful for Rachel’s warm, personalized approach.

transform

  • See yourself once again as capable, inspired, healthy.

  • Start saying yes again to professional and social opportunities, time with family and friends, that once felt too taxing.

  • Not only recover but start preventing pain. Move with confidence, take care of business, lift the kids, wiggle, work out, and play safely without pain, fear of flares or re-injury.

  • Manage your energy reserves before they are depleted. Know when and how to maintain or increase your vitality, by tracking what you are taking in and offering out.

  • Change your relationship to pain, tension, fatigue, and suffering.

  • Wake refreshed and move through your days capable and energized.

… how we get there

Your two-month program includes seven 1:1 in-person sessions at my San Francisco office, with an initial, extended (90-minute) plus six hour-long sessions (weekly at first, then every other week). At the end of each month, we’ll have a support call to talk about how things are going and expand on your next steps. From the very first session, we begin with RE-SET and add elements of the other pillars from there. With this developmental approach, I take you through practice sequences each time so you know you are doing them correctly and build from there.

… You’ll also receive:

Access via two 1:1 monthly support calls
Weekly insight emails/texts/audios
Custom practice sequences designed for you
Gear and kits for your sleep, core, balance and more
Resources, books, referrals, and recipes

… what happens after two months?

As you complete your two-month, developmental program, we revisit key assessments to see how you’ve shifted from baseline. We celebrate your accomplishments, lift up transformations, and then plan your next steps to maintain gains. Once you master RE/ST Foundations™, you will have the option to refine and sustain with me in ongoing sessions via RE/ST Maintained.
