ABOUT ULRIKE (RIKI)
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.
