Hi, From Lou Gross
Recognized Structure & Bodymind Expert

I SPECIALIZE in direct and custom
communication with people who want specific
Body Structure & Body-Mind improvements.
Athletics, Tightness, Pain, Seniors, Backs, Trauma, Grief, Personal Growth

         With 24 years professional experience in the Bodywork and Body-Mind therapy fields, I consider myself a Structural Expert and a Body-Mind Therapy Release Expert.  I am also very knowledgeable in Natural Health, herbs and Living Food Nutrition, and in accurate methods to analyze life patterns and give good direction for life's activities, both in the immediate year, in seven year cycles and for one's whole life.
            Altogether, I have 36 years intensive experience in the personal growth and body-mind improvement fields.
            During this time I have also been teaching and writing in the fields of Engineering, Bodywork & Bodymind Therapies, and Nutrition.
            I have carried over my engineering design, analysis and "debugging" skills into the field of Human Development.
My greatest expertise lies in the fields of Structural Integration and an integrated system of emotional release and personal growth Body-Mind therapies.   I am an expert in removing the trauma from specific incidents of loss and hurt, and also from a long series of incidents such as childhood abuse.
            My skills also include Personal Development and Career Guidance Counselor and Nutritional-Natural Health Counselor.
(I was an Engineer & Engineering Manager in Businesses.)
             I bring an unusual broad based education into a highly integrated approach to a few key practices.
For example, even when I am working on athletes for "purely" performance improvement, I am automatically including nourishment, support, body functioning education and personal growth insights.
           When I work on executives and health practitioners for stress removal, I add the same kinds of practices, and increase their physical capabilities as well.
           When people come to me for body-mind emotional & trauma release, I'm also applying real physical tools that increase their confidence and "state of being" at the same time.

I use a Wholistic Approach to
Structural Integration Bodywork & Body-Mind Therapy,
taking into account structure, nutrition, energies & body emotional release

              My gift is that I can use outstanding, PhD taught, state of the art techniques, to both free up chronic, built-up tightnesses, stress & emotions and also transform bodies into more highly performing  physical, emotional & energetic systems.
               And I educate you about your structure & Body-mind,
so you will know just what you're "made of," what goes wrong or what is not-integrated enough,  why that's so, & how to fix or improve it by yourself and/or with a Bodyworker, or Body-mind Therapist.

I love what I do,
educating & helping people with my gifts & experience

(Please note:  All information here is of a secular nature.  While I have a personal spiritual practice, and that comes through in how I relate to people, I purposely separate my therapies in my work from any specific religious orientation .)
