Roeshan’s love and deep respect for the human body’s ability to heal began early on in her life. “Being extremely active growing up as a climber, surfer, gymnast, and snowboarder, I was constantly seeking ways to restore balance in my life and relieve pain in my body. While competing and traveling on the professional circuit, injury prevention, maintenance, and recovery were key components to feeling and doing my best. Hands-on bodywork, movement therapy, and nutrition were the answers to my prayers and lead me to the next chapter of my life. The opportunity to offer that back and help others find freedom and joy in their body and lives lights me up!”
