Ulrike (Riki), born and raised in Germany, chose Mexico as her home in 2001 after successfully pursuing her career within the fashion industry for more than 11 years while working and living in Russia, Poland and Italy. As a result of contemplating her life’s path, she made the decision to fundamentally change her way of life. Mexico, with its much slower rhythm of life, its wide-open spaces, its natural beauty and its proximity to the Pacific Ocean, became the perfect setting for her transformation.

Realizing that she had 'The Touch,' Riki enthusiastically chose to follow this calling and to make it her new profession. In 2004, after graduating from a private massage school in Puerto Vallarta and studying Reflexology, she started working as massage therapist. It was important for her not to work in a spa setting, where only routine massages are possible. Thus she was able to develop the skills needed to quickly assess the body and to apply a combination of techniques necessary for the situation at hand. This independence also gives her the opportunity to constantly learn new techniques and to immediately implement them in her work.

Riki is very sensitive to the fact that every person has his or her own comfort range concerning the amount of pressure applied during bodywork. She actually considers it an art to have the awareness and sensitivity to do profound bodywork while recognizing and respecting every person’s boundaries. Recently she coined the term “Friendly Rolfing” in order to change people’s preconceived ideas about this form of bodywork.

In 2007 she graduated from the Guild for Structural Integration in Boulder, Colorado as a certified practitioner. So for the last 9 years this manual therapy form has been the main focus of her practice in her studio in Sayulita. Through a steady practice and an on-going continuing education process she constantly deepens her understanding of the human body and widens her horizon about the complexity and wonder of the human condition.

Apart from manual therapy she uses visual assessment, movement education and exercise prescription to provide a truly integrated approach to client care with lasting results.

Amazing results with Jin Shin Jyutsu
I live in Sayulita and have received amazing Rolfing treatment several times before with Ricki for challenging physical issues and I used to go to a different practitioner in town for regular preventative accupuncture as I work in front of the computer every day. My accupuncturist left town quite some time ago I didn't realize how much I had been missing my monthly maintenance treatments, until Ricki introduced me to the wonderful Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu!

During this last session Ricki provided me a combination therapy of Rolfing with 15 mins of Jin Shin Jyutsu and I was AMAZED with the results. I had been feeling very physically jammed up in my neck & lower back and mentally/emotionally like I was holding on to a lot but not dealing with it. During the Jin Shin Jyutsu I experienced all of the same sensations and relieft i normally would with accupuncture but without the needles! I immediately felt the energy flowing more freely throughout my entire body and increased mental clarity.

The next day I felt so much better and returned for an additional treatment. During this Jin Shin Jyutsu session Ricki worked on a different pathway and I felt like this further enhanced and built upon the benefits from the 1st session to clear out all the remaining cobwebs I had.

Overall, post treatment I feel fantastic and will be booking regular preventative maintenance Jin Shin Jyutsu sessions moving forward to replace the accupuncture I no longer have access to! I highly recommend this therapy in conjunction with Rolfing or as a stand alone therapy.

Thank you Ricki for bringing the amazing ancient Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu to Sayulita!

Magical marriage
My husband and I traveled from California to Sayulita to have a wedding
ceremony and share such an incredible place with the people we love
the most.

We met with many local people, businesses, and experiences, Ulrike being
one of them. On the day of our wedding, we both thought a massage
would be the best way to ease some of our nerves and anxiety.

Being in her kind and gentle presence was enough to feel confident in her
hands. Having explained to Ulrike what we both were struggling with in
the moment - being anxiety, nerves, and stress pains - she suggested Jin Shin Jyutsu
was the route to go for both of us. We couldn't have been more relaxed
and stress free after our sessions. In fact, we were both so relaxed that
when challenges came up that day, we were both clear headed enough
to handle them with refreshing ease.

We both highly recommend consulting with Riki first with what you are
experiencing in the moment of your big day, and rest assured that she
will point you in the right direction.

Healing work
Ulrike's Jin Shin Jyutsu sessions are a wonderful healing gift to yourself! This is a non invasive, relaxing, powerful healing modality. It is subtle, but so effective for both physical and emotional issues. I have had some really surprising and remarkable sessions, and will definitely sign up for more!

From Structural Integration to Jin Shin Jyutsu, Riki is simply the BEST practitioner I have ever worked with!!
I've done 3 full sets of 10 Structural Integration sessions with Riki, and have had amazing results in gaining flexibility and reducing or totally eliminating pain from previous sports and other injuries, but something even more special happened in a recent JSJ session with her. I gave Riki a one word description of how I was feeling, having had to deal with an extreme amount of sadness over the past 4 years, and the pathways she chose to work with must have been perfect, as even during the session I found myself feeling incredibly energized and happy. Weeks later, even as various new challenges have threatened to interrupt that vibe, I find myself able to simply push them aside and reset back to that energized and elated space with ease. I always recommend Riki for Structural Integration (I don't think there's anyone better at it than her), and now feel as confident about her Jin Shin Jyutsu skills as the SI. Riki is an incredibly talented body-worker. Do yourself a favour and allow yourself to experience either her SI or JSJ practices.

Excellent treatment!
I had 3 Rolfing sessions with Rikki. She is knowledgeable, intuitive, and kind. Her studio is conveniently located in the square, neat and clean. I am a massage therapist and have received bodywork regularly-Rikki is one of the best! I really enjoyed my time with her and if I was there, I would continue the 10 Rolfing sessions with her. I highly recommend her for effective work, relaxation, and personal growth. Thanks Rikki!

Rolfing sessions
I have just recently finished a 10 session Rolfing series with Riki and would highly recommend it to anyone whose feeling like there body is just not in check in anymore.

I had an issue with my lower back and right knee (well, I thought that that was the issue as that was where the pain was), but through talking with Riki about what "accidents" I had had over the years and her observation of my body, these pains stemmed from an injury I sustained 21 years ago and my body had been compensating for the under-laying issues.

Anyway, long story short, fast forward 12 sessions later (I opted for 2 more so that I was completely in check), I have no back or knee pain, I feel as if my body has loosened up in places that were always tight and my posture is 100%.

I would HIGHLY recommend Riki to anyone and it is 100% worth the investment of time and money for a easy future.

Thanks Riki, you changed my world :)

The best I had in my six weeks here
My only regret is that I discovered ulrike too late in my stay. She was, hands down, the best body worker among the five I tried. I first experienced Rolfing 35 years ago & swore I would never let a "roller" near me! But Ulrike was totally different--strong & gentle all once.

I'm grateful for Ulrike! She's the best. I highly recommend her without reservation.
