Richard Rossiter is an innovator and connective tissue specialist who created these powerful stretching techniques out of necessity for his own painful injuries and rehabilitation when other techniques failed. Wartime injuries suffered as a helicopter pilot in Vietnam produced shoulders that were so painful he could barely move his arm.
That’s when he discovered “Rolfing”, a form of bodywork that focuses on lengthening and restoring the body’s connective tissue. Once he discovered the benefits of Rolfing in relieving his own pain, Richard applied to the Rolf Institute in Boulder, CO. He graduated from the institute, eventually becoming a certified advanced Rolfer in 1987.
Richard Rossiter began looking for a way to help people in pain BEFORE their symptoms got the best of them. As a result, he created The Rossiter System, a highly evolved series of stretches that allow his principles and pain-relief approaches to be used virtually without limit in the workplace by trained employees and supportive managers. In 1990, he formed Rossiter & Associates Inc.
