In this episode I interview Isaac Osborne, Advanced Practitioner of Structural Integration, LMT, and creator and founder of imaging software Body Align Pro and inventor of the Sqr Shot device holder about his practice and his recent experience as an attendee and exhibitor at the 4th Fascial Research Congress in Reston Virginia.
A brief bio:
Isaac has 17 years in the chronic pain industry. He began his bodywork training while living on Kauai learning Hawaiian Lomi Lomi, Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Shiatsu, Lymph Drainage Massage, American and Russian Sports Massage, Craino-sacral Therapy, Thai Yoga Therapy, and Myofascial Release.
For 2 years Isaac was the lead medical massage therapist in a Physical Therapy Clinic where he focused on pre and post surgical care, work comp injuries and auto injuries. Realizing that the techniques he was using could be improved to help his clients (and himself because he was suffering from his own chronic low back and neck pain for over 12 years). He sought out the Rolf Method of Structural Integration to further enhance his training and address his pain. Isaac became certified in the method and incorporated the technique into his practice at his own clinic that he started after leaving the physical therapy clinic.
After a couple of years of practicing the Rolf Method and getting his advanced certification Isaac was invited to teach with his mentor Emmett Hutchins at the Guild for Structural Integration. Isaac has taught with them since 2005 with beginning, advanced classes, and workshops and also taught a class in Japan.
The next progression in his training occurred when Isaac discovered the Egoscue Method of Posture Alignment Therapy. Learning the Egoscue Method felt like the missing puzzle piece that allowed him total freedom from his remaining pain of over 16 years.
An Accredited Exercise Therapist from Egoscue University and former Instructor for Egoscue University, Isaac combines his extensive experience and passion for sharing his knowledge to help people free themselves of chronic pain, address their postural compensations, and improve athletic performance.
Isaac Osborne managed the imaging software for the Guild for Structural Integration for several years and has used imaging software in his clinic for over 10 years. He has reviewed thousands of photos with clients, students, teachers and mentors and recognized what a valuable teaching tool it was for them to see their photos. But this value is only realized when the camera is positioned precisely as possible and so Isaac created Body Align Pro® and SqrShot™. Isaac uses the App every day in his clinic, Motion Unlimited, Santa Barbara.
