I completed my training to become a Certified Rolfer in 1989 at the Rolf Institute in Boulder, Colorado. I completed the Advanced Rolfing training in 1999. I have maintained a practice in Dallas since 1989.Sam Johnson Certified Advanced Rolfer, Dallas, Texas

My pre-Rolfing background is in psychology – I received a B.S. in Psychology from Texas A&M in 1981 and later worked in a variety of counseling related jobs.I have received advanced training at the Rolf Institute on working with the interaction between fascia and nerve function, on how perception and patterns of movement affect structure, and on the resolution of trauma.

One thing I love about Rolfing is that the effects are so general – it can benefit athletes and dancers, people suffering from chronic pain, those looking for personal insight, healing, or resolution of the effects of trauma, and people who have no particular complaints but are simply interested in feeling healthier.

In my free time I can be found training for my first triathlon, looking for my golf ball somewhere in the rough, searching for a river in which to flyfish, or heading to Austin to explore the Hill Country.

About the pictures…the photos that appear in the header on each page were taken in 2010, during a trip I took with friends and colleagues to the Himalayas in Nepal. I had wanted to visit that part of the world since I was a child, and it was so wonderful that I may be going back in late 2012. I included them on my website in part because I personally love looking at them, and maybe in the hope that Rolfing can help nudge you along in some small way to pursuing your passions. Whether it is getting physically able to be active again or rekindling a goal or something that inspires you, I hope you go for it!
