Our Creator & Founder
I fell in love with my body the second I woke up to its true design.
Until then, it felt more like a pain prison – an oppressive shell of restriction and containment. Nothing in me felt free.
I spent thousands of hours trying to get rid of my pain. I pursued every discipline and practice from East to West to be fixed. When I brought my symptoms and conditions to the most elite professionals, they scratched their heads confounded. “It’s too complicated,” they said. I walked out of every office with nothing more than confirmation that my pain was too complicated – that I was too complicated.
When all over avenues failed, I was left to my own devices, alone and in charge of saving my own body.
So, with only raw will and conviction in my corner, I took my healing into my own hands – literally. I began feeling and following the connections to and from my pain in my own body in order to find answers and freedom. I started turning the key from the inside out.
And I found fascia.
Once I started tracing the connections between pains I felt in my body, I found a delicate series of trails binding them together. I kept following and following them until I’d mapped my entire body, and it was then that the sun finally rose on the dark night of pain I’d been in for so long.
It finally rose.
From then on, I vowed to only chase what was more vital and more freeing, what tasted and felt good. My palette permanently pulled away from movement that made me feel heavy, left me feeling congested or made my conditions flare up.
Using everything I’d learned, researched and experienced, I initiated my own thing, my own praxis, that gifted me with the visceral change I innately knew had to be possible. Release and reprieve rushed back into my body and my being, and I knew that it was good, it was beautiful, and it was true.
Since then, GST Body has given me what I’d always longed for during the dark nights of the soul: My freedom.
