Rolfing® Structural Integration & Polestar Certified Pilates Teacher-PMA®
Whole Body Kinetics & Structural Wellness addresses posture, muscle and skeletal imbalances that contribute to less efficient movement patterns and are often associated with discomfort or chronic pain.
We take a comprehensive approach to address these imbalances by application of Rolfing® Structural Integration (RSI), Polestar Pilates fitness plans and Movement Education. We use a whole body approach and scientific research related to bio-tensegrity (whole body movement) to integrate all parts of your body. The result is a physical orchestra that works in unison compared to individual segments playing separate parts. Clients often experience an ease in movements as their movement becomes more natural and unrestricted. Many clients also experience standing taller without effort, feel lighter, feel younger and have less pain.

What Clients Say
I always thought that I had good posture, but after a series of 10 sessions with him, I actually feel taller! My aches and pains have diminished and it feels easier to breathe.Adaku Zerhouni
When Brendan first treated me years ago, there were patients in the clinic that refused to work with anyone else. Helping people is truly a calling for Brendan.Sandra Eiro
I am absolutely thrilled at the results of my sessions with Whole Body Kinetics and feel that my workouts, yoga and Pilates practices are a million times more beneficial!Yelp Reviewer
To say that Brendan changed my life does not fully encapsulate the effect he has had. For the first time in my life, I am standing squarely on my feet, all four corners touching the ground and supporting my skeleton correctly - instead of standing on the lateral sides of my feet, with all my weight sitting back in my heels. My shape has changed; the way I walk, the way I breathe, the way I sing - everything is different, new, better. More than anything, the most beautiful gift Brendan has given me is an awareness of my body – how paying attention to the way I feel physically will provide invaluable insight into the way I feel emotionally. I also have started exploring Pilates with Brendan as a follow up to my Rolfing work.Dorothy O. #Rolfing Structural Integration and #Polestar Pilates client of Whole Body Kinetics.
