Trevor Paque, Certified Rolfer
I am a Certified Rolfer and a graduate of the Dr. Ida Rolf Institute . I practice in Santa Cruz, CA.
I specialize in helping people overcome chronic pain issues. I started on this path in 2007 when I scheduled my first Rolfing session. I went in because of chronic back pain. My Rolfer started the session with an interview where he identified my sitting habits as the source of my pain. He showed me a better way to sit and sent me home. We never even had a session. I have been free from chronic back pain ever since.
I believe that people can make positive changes that free them from their pain. In 2010 I started playing Ultimate. On game days I would run for hours. Then, after games, my right knee would hurt so much that I could barely walk. A number of friends recommended that I read the book Pain Free, by Pete Egoscue. Two days after I started using the Egoscue Method I played Ultimate again. The next morning I woke up and there was no pain. I couldn't believe it, fifteen years of knee pain gone after two sessions! I haven't had knee pain since. Through my successes in treating my own pain I developed an interest in helping other people treat theirs.
Just because you have pain now doesn't mean you will always have pain, it is not a part of who you are. There are ways of changing your structure and your movement patterns that can free you from your pain. Freeing yourself from pain gives you more energy to be yourself. This is the message that made me want to become a Rolfer, because after I overcame my own chronic pain I wanted to help other people overcome theirs.
