When bodies have pain, they may be missing some critical techniques that have changed my life and perhaps could change yours too.
These technique I use to realign and open space to a neutral, more youthful structure, mind and nervous system.
I have blended a combination of Body Rolling, self-myo fascial release, AIS Stretching, Trigger Point Therapy and Somatic experiencing to continue to heal myself, as it is a life style and daily practice and help others heal themselves also.
You know the saying....
I don't want to give you a fish,
I want to teach you how to fish.
This will change your life!
Allow me to help you remember, uncover and move through issues in your tissues, to get back to your most authentic, original self!
We take our bodies, as they are, with faulty structural patterns that have developed over years from repetitive movements, our careers to stressful thoughts and old beliefs which are locked in our nervous system.
We then lift weights and engage in other similar strategies, trying to regain peace and a pain free structure. Without addressing the underlying nervous system and structures first, this type of additional activity can lead to chronic pain, anxiety, stress, degenerative joints and low functioning organs due to dysregulation in the nervous system thus causing restrictions and compression throughout the body!
To build muscle on this structure that is compressed with fascial tissue that is pulling our structure out of alignmen is dangerous and aging to our bodies joints and nervous system and organs.

I was an ACE Certified Personal Trainer for 24 years. I am a Medical Massage Therapist, Fully Trained in Trigger Point Therapy, Certified Yamuna Body Rolling instructor, Active Isolated Stretching trained, and Level 3 Rossiter Stretching Certified coach.
I have done extensive self healing work with myself emotionally, physically and spiritually that carries over into our sessions.
I offer a unique blend of modalities, designed to educate and empower individuals to increase their own body, mind awareness. I have learned that we must have our body, mind, fascia, muscular and specifically the nervous system on board, and recovery program in place, to offset the daily stresses and/or workouts asked of our bodies.
I have blended these techniques to help myself through my own struggles with postural distortions and pain due to occupational, repetitive movements, hard workouts and underlying emotional blockages, dysregulated nervous system, which has created a lot of empathy in me. I have a personal experience and understanding, in being adopted, surviving cancer and suffered the loss of a family member by suicide, to name a few. If you need to move through emotions, which can be locked in your tissue, I can hold space for you in a kind and loving way.
Since 1999 I have shared my passion of the things that have worked for me with my clients. I would love to have the chance to help facilitate your healing too.

Yamuna Body Rolling
by Linda Sechrist
Personal experience ignited Patti Reed’s passion for preventing pain and undoing the damage done by many of today’s fitness regimens. An Ace Certified Personal Trainer and owner of Intuitive Movement, Reed lived with a great deal of pain that resulted from years of repetitive movements she performed daily in her dog grooming business and personal weightlifting routine. After she began working with a cutting-edge physical therapist, that integrated myofascial release and trigger point therapy into her work, Reed’s body began to respond gradually to being stretched over a foam roller and exercise ball. “My body was a real mess but I really looked good because I had worked out three hours every day at the gym. Unknowingly, repetitive movements had impacted my muscular structure and unfortunately, my trainer didn’t know about doing a full postural analysis before developing my body building routines. As I eventually learned, this is a major mistake because a trainer needs to know your range of motion for all the muscles in the body in order to develop a routine that doesn’t do damage,” explains Reed.
Extensive personal research provided Reed with ways that she could expand on the stretching techniques recommended by the physical therapist. Ultimately she found an arsenal of self-release tools including Yamuna Body Rolling (YBR), a powerful self-fixing and maintaining tool, which she began using in her self-care routine. “I took the YBR classes and became a certified YBR Practitioner. In 2001, I became a Medical Massage Therapist and took classes from Aaron Mattes, whose Mattes Method of active isolated stretching is recognized worldwide for treating pain. All of this helped me to understand how my body’s muscular system works, what muscles to release and stretch, as well as in what order,” notes Reed, who offers group and private YBR sessions.
Everyone, regardless of age or physical limitations, can benefit from YBR, which organizes the body and brings all the parts back to working the way they should and can be. In a YBR class, individuals learn to work on each part of the body, rolling the ball, which is appropriately sized and firmed, from the buttocks to the calf; from the tail bone up to the skull; from the abdomen up to the collar bone; from the collar bone out to the shoulder joint; and so on. “YBR, which gives individuals the opportunity to work on themselves, develops a sense of empowerment because they can free their body of restrictions and eliminate stress and tension anytime, anywhere, forever,” says Reed.
