Have you been searching for answers for your chronic pain?  Are you looking for ways to balance your body, mind and spirit?

I started started Stretch Chi because of my own physical pain after years as a professional pianist.  Tendonitis, back pain, shoulder pain and a family history of fibromyalgia lead me to build the ultimate mind-body solution - a combination of Ki-Hara Resistance Stretching, meditation and diet change.  All which lead to building the successful online course "Life Renovations."  At Stretch Chi, creating a mindfulness practice along with the most effective method of building strength and flexibility that I have ever come across, Ki-Hara, has lead to success in treating many clients in over 8 years.  

Stretch Chi is dedicated to the practice of the Ki-Hara Method of Resistance Stretching. I use techniques that incorporate muscle activation and muscle balancing to ensure that your body is working at its most productive state.  Ki-Hara is used to remove the layers of tension that may be covering up the true cause of pain.  Stretch Chi clients see an immediate increase in strength and flexibility, giving them a better body, better posture and better balance from the inside out.  Ki-hara helps people of all ages and abilities - from injury recovery, chronic back pain and frozen shoulder to finding a better and stronger you mind, body and spirit.

  • Ki-Hara is maximally effective with minimum effort! My favorite type of workout!

    I have always struggled to workout. I was born pre-mature with low lung capacity and have always felt winded and burning in my lungs before my muscles tire out. Because of this, any sort of workout routine feels I put in so much effort and don't get the results that I want. When I started doing Ki-Hara, I found that I was able to get massive results with minimal effort and it felt so good.... Read More

    How to Stay Limber in the Air

    In all my research, dehydration seems to be the major culprit of muscle tightness during air travel. We tend to feel the most comfortable when the humidity is between 40-70%, yet in an aircraft cabin, it falls to about 20% - even less than the Sahara Desert! In these conditions our body goes into overdrive to make sure our essential organs remain hydrated. Connective tissue (fascia, membranes,... Read More

    This is one of my favorite radio pieces by Jennifer Brandel. ​Jennifer Brandel: The last time I could touch my toes must have been shortly after birth. 
 If and when I try to, I end up looking more like a zombie searching for a contact lens. I have never been flexible; I have always wanted to be. And that.. is my secret shame. Read More
