Riki was born and raised in Germany and has been living in Mexico since 2001. She practices healthcare and hands-on bodywork since 14 years and studied and keeps studying extensively Structural Integration, also known as Rolfing, different massage techniques, Jin Shin Jyutsu which is the predecessor of acupuncture, osteopathic visceral manipulation, trigger point therapy, biomagnetism, cold laser therapy, body awareness, movement and functional anatomy.

Her approach to healing is based on the fact that any illness is always an imbalance of the mental, emotional and physical aspects of our being. Any physical symptom is but a pointer to deeper underlying disharmonies.  She is deeply interested in all aspects of human existence, the intricate connections within ourselves, the meaning of our life paths, our conditionings and circumstances we were born into which all provide the general frame for learning, experiencing, accepting, transforming and loving.

Riki is a practical, well grounded and optimistic person who enjoys helping other people to heal and gain a deeper understanding of whatever the problem / project might be right now in their lifes.

So Greatful To Have Found Ulrike
After 3 surgeries in 3 years my body was a mess. I was in a lot of discomfort plus out of alignment. I made plans to travel to Sayulita for a vacation and with the hope of finding someone to help me heal.
I booked several sessions with Ulrike after reading her website and searching for what I hoped to be the right healer for me. She has helped me tremendously. Her extensive knowledge, plus her confidence in her work and sense of calm has helped me get on the right path to restore my body. I highly recommend Ulrike and am extremely grateful for her attentive care and expertise.

Best pain relief sessions of my life!
I had severe sciatica pain in my leg that was debilitating. I was not able to sit down for more than 15 minutes at a time without being in excruciating pain. I would wake up every 4 hours during the night due to the pain. I was taking Ibuprofen, doing yoga daily and stretching every 4 hours, anything to try and find relief. My first session had Ulrike had her exam my posture, understand where the pain was and then she gave me an intense pressure releasing massage which is technique called Rolfing. I went 18 hours with virtually no pain and was able to sleep 7 hours straight. I had three sessions with her during my stay in Sayulita and I feel like a new human. Thank you for making such a big difference in my health and well-being!

Excellent Massage Therapist & Healer
I met Ulrike (Riki) on my recent stay in Sayulita. She was able to see me in my Airbnb which was very convenient. I injured myself the day before, a sprained ankle of which I couldn’t put any weight on. Riki used multiple modalities to reduce pain and facilitate healing. I felt at least 40% improvement immediately after her session with me. I was then able to start to put weight on my foot. I booked another session a week later. I found Riki to be an excellent massage therapist but much more, she is a gifted and highly professional healer. She also values a wholistic approach, strives to understand the whole picture and the complete person. She operates with integrity, compassion and a clear intent to improve things for others. I would unreservedly recommend her as a massage therapist and healer.

One of the best massages I’ve ever had
Ulrike was very easy to book and communicate with online before we traveled to Sayulita. My husband and I both booked 90 min massages with her, and they were excellent. I’ve had numerous massages for the past three decades and she was one of the best I’ve ever had. She is very intuitive and I’m not surprised that others have commented on her natural healing sense. Would definitely come back, worth every penny.

Wonderful!!!! Highly recommend!!
We hired Ulrike to come do daily massages at our private beach vacation rental during our 5 day stay in Sayulita. She was very easy to work with when booking, and her massages exceeded our expectations!!! She is very skilled and focuses well on your specific needs. It was the best massage I’ve ever had! Well worth the money & your time. If you need relaxation & a massage (or two), definitely call her.

A True Healer
Ulrike is a true healer. I spoke to her about a major injury that was lingering and she was able to find all of the sensitive areas affected by the injury. I have had a lot of holistic healers work on me and she out performed all of them. Salulita is lucky to have such a dynamic healer.

Life changing experience with Ulrike
Trying to keep this brief won't be easy. The two months I have worked with Ulrike have been nothing short of what feels a bit like a miracle. After roughly 20 years of paying for doctors, therapists, and practioners of all kinds to each give me a unique diagnosis to address what felt like terrible depression and insomnia, I had essentially given up on my health. I had certainly given up on getting to a healthy place naturally. I am 50 years old, and during the last two months which I had intended to use to get healthy, I have transformed from a person with no energy and infrequent positive feelings about my future to a person with boundless energy the likes of which I do not recall ever having. Running, lifting weights, and almost completely off of the three medications I had resigned myself to for mental health and feeling ALIVE and well just about every day. I was somewhat fit before, but it was a big struggle with joint pain and energy to get there. This was done through strict and dedicated adherence to Ulrike's suggested diet along with weekly Jin Shin Jyutsu sessions over the course of 2+ months. While I cant guarantee the same level of results for you, if you have struggled for a long time I cannot possibly say enough good things about how fantastic I feel and my gratitude toward Ulrike. She was also the first of all of the people I had seen before who made no promise of results, and her suggestions all resonated with me. Honest approach and incredible results!

Structural integration worked like magic!
Ulrike has a deep understanding of the body. From the first day that I walked in she was able to look at my body and tell me exactly why I was having pain and issues. We spent the next several weeks working on the issues, and after we were done each time I felt more freedom in my body. By the end of our time together I had more flexibility and range of motion and I was able to do things I haven’t done in years. What is most impressive for me though still is all the knowledge she has about the body! I learned a lot from her. The biggest thing though is she really cares, she helped me understand why I was having issues and helped to tackle the root cause of the issues, unlike most doctors who just treat the symptoms.

Overall I would highly recommend trying out Structural Integration with Ulrike!

Incredible experience, will return when in Sayulita
Ulrike was part of what made my 3 months in Sayulita so positive and memorable. I came in with chronic back pain, struggling to enjoy the activities that I enjoyed, and feeling emotionally drained. Through a series of structural integration massages, she provided a significant amount of pain relief, and also recommended a number of books and studies so that I could dig deeper into emotional triggers that could be increasing my pain. I enjoyed every session with Ulrike on a personal level, as she makes you feel comfortable, and listens / responds in a very thoughtful way. Highly recommend!

Riki is INCREDIBLE - You won't regret it!
I have been attending Rolfing sessions with Riki for about two and a half months now and I cannot even begin to explain the relief and benefits that I have seen in such a short space of time. I was injured in a car accident nearly six years ago, causing me to spend countless dollars and hours searching for treatments, a friend of mine found Riki's website and I thought I might as well give it a go since Rolfing was one of the only treatments that I had not tried.

I'm SO grateful that I made that decision. I've suffered from nerve migraines for the last six years, leaving me bed ridden for up to 4 days at a time. These are finally starting to improve, thanks to the amazing work she does. She's extremely caring, sweet, and knowledgable - I would give 50000 stars if I could!
