One client said: "After my session with Ulrike yesterday I can say that to receive such elegant, concise,intuitive & knowledgeable bodywork as Ulrike's is my good fortune.....gently yet firmly unwinding a stuck shoulder injured years ago, feels as though a furled wing is being coaxed to fly again." Mary Woosley, Louisiana

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.

Riki is highly skilled and continues to progress her craft
I have enjoyed post surf massages from Riki over the years of visiting Sayulita. She knows her anatomy and can release the worst muscle knots. And her Rolfing certification brings another tool to bear when she needs it.

But the reason I’m writing this review is because I had a first in my life back event that left me on the floor for two days. On the afternoon of the second day I made my way to Riki’s rooftop sanctuary. She looked me over and said you need more than a massage and changed to her Rolfing table. Via a combination of deep pressure releasing massage and application of cold laser therapy the pain in my leg receded a bit that night. After a second similar session the next day, I was able to walk pain free and fly home comfortably— a feat considering how far I’d come in 3 days.

Writing this from the US wishing I could have a few more sessions with Riki and her laser.

First pain relief in 20 years
I have been living in constant pain from a variety of injuries including a broken back that manifested in my hip and right leg creating incredible sciatic, peripheral neuropathy and general torture from hip to tip from the constant electricity; I also think it may have something to do with the 3 blood clots in that leg (no proof). In addition, being a skier, surfer, martial arts, etc. person I have assorted pain all over that I almost don't acknowledge, why bother? After one treatment from Riki's new cold laser (I have been a patient for 15 years) I was thunderstruck at the difference! Improvement in every area she applied it. The most wonderful thing was no more nueropathy , which feels like the inside of your foot is on fire. Apparently results differ from person to patient, but for me it was a miracle! Thank you Riki

Profound Improvement with Jin Shin Jyutsu after first session
I was in Sayulita for 3 weeks thru To January 5 ,2018 and wanted my Holiday to be very relaxing , nurturing and restorative. I was referred to Riki from a friend who spoke very highly of her ,of how their was a transformation in her sessions. Riki is a healer, her continual studying and full hearten immersion into Body Work is a gift too her clients. I couldn't agree more, after having the experience . Balanced Nervous system, I felt Very rested & a profound calmness in my demeanor ,lovely grounded and focused Clarity.I did three sessions. If I had know how effective Jin Shin Jyutsu was I would have signed up for 6 sessions .I will always go back to visit Sayulita Holistic Bodywork / Rikik * its located right across from the town-square on the coco/banana side above the Pharmacy, climb the spiral metal stairs and you have arrived*

Wonderful experience!!
I will start this review by stating that I have been an outpatient physical therapist for almost 20 yrs. My husband and I came to Sayulita for a much needed vacation. While walking on the beach and seeing businesses that would give massages for $30/hour, we decided to do some investigating on the different spas located in Sayulita.
We came across Riki and the Holistic Bodywork. She has a great number of highly rated reviews. We went to the office the next morning and both of us were able to have 2 treatment sessions during our stay.
These are the things that are most important:
1) Riki has attended extensive continuing education classes; this shows her dedication to her profession
2) Riki is truly a diagnostician; she is able to evaluate and determine what areas need to be worked on
3) The techniques she uses are therapeutic in nature and not a fluffy beach massage and will have more lasting positive effects as both my husband and I have experienced
4) Riki also educates you on things to do to improve
5)) If you truly value your health and wellbeing, she is worth every penny/peso.

Great Massage
Read the reviews and reached right out to schedule an outcall visit. The reviews were all spot on. Great massage all around. Nothing formulaic, but rather very tailored to my body’s needs. Will absolutely schedule another appointment on our next visit and would recommend her bodywork to anyone. Thank you!

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.
