Hi, I’m Tom Richards
I’m a Advanced Rolfer in Oakland and the greater Bay Area, certified by the Dr. Ida Rolf Institute of Structural Integration. Governed by a Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice, Certified Rolfers have extensive training in anatomy, physiology, kinesiology and therapeutic relationship. My skills include joint mobilization, nerve manipulation, and movement therapy. I hold a B.S. in Kinesiology from San Francisco State University.
Frustrated by pain or fatigue? Does it now hurt to do something that has up to this point never hurt you before? Whether you’re an athlete or office worker who would like to take their performance to the next level, Rolfing may be your most effective and natural solution. Rolfing can address these pain issues.
Injuries, trauma, and daily habits can cause the body to lose its relationship to gravity. This can lead to pain, decreased range of motion, and lack of energy. Rolfing is a type of body manipulation that treats patterns of strain in the body. Postural balance can be restored through this hands-on bodywork.
We only get one body in this life, which we rely on everyday to function, work, and live. Shouldn’t you enjoy being in yours to it’s full potential? I have 10 yrs of experience helping clients address pain and movement problems. Book a session or consultation today and evolve to a pain-free body, I can help you.
Is Rolfing Right For You?
I always recommend a consultation to address any questions you may have about how I work and what we will try to accomplish together. In this consultation, I will evaluate your body structure both standing and walking. Every session has a corresponding theme, objective, and territory of the body that is explored to seek which aims to reduce pain and help lead you to recovery.

If you have a sports injury, chronic pain, and are interested in a holistic but very physical method to improve your posture, I highly recommend Tom Richards and his practice.
I did a series with Tom a couple of months ago. It appears to have been the catalyst for some profound and very welcome changes in my body. I now feel more ease.
