I only give RMR 5 stars because I cannot give them 10. What a stellar find!
I've had "crunchy shoulders" for ages and a friend of mine had been urging me to go see Shelly and try Rossiter. I've tried everything, yoga, massage, chiropractic, Migun beds, acupuncture... you name it. I believe in all these methods, but nothing was helping me get through the years of built-up junk in my upper back and shoulders. I felt like the best I could do was just to learn how to most functionally live with my limitations. "This is what it feels like to get older, right?"
Absolutely not. After 1 session with Shelly, a chronic headache I'd had for almost a month was gone. After 2 sessions, my right shoulder was "crunch free." After 4 sessions, we're making incredible progress on my left shoulder and I am feeling freedom in my upper body that I haven't felt since I was a kid.
Don't get me wrong - it is not the kind of bodywork where you just lie there and hte practitioner "works on you." You are heavily involved in the process and sometimes getting through that built-up junk is really intense! But, for me, it's the "hurts so good" kind of sensation and feels *incredible* to be breaking through and ridding the body of the junk that has built up.
I could not recommend them more highly. If you are in pain, and willing to put in the work - GO!

Rossiter is difficult for me to explain. So, I would refer you to look at the website for an accurate description. But, what I can very accurately explain and describe is what Rossiter at Rocky Mountain Rossiter (RMR) has done for me. Before my sessions at Rocky Mountain Rossiter, I experienced tension headaches (comparable to migraines) at least once a week that required a large dose of Advil to control. I frequently took at least one does of Advil per day, woke up in pain every morning, and dreaded my commute as I knew I would have either a sore neck or headache when I arrive at my destination. I have a history of being a gym rat and would consider myself pretty physically fit. So, when my chiropractor told me I should also check out Rossiter to address some muscle issues I was surprised and intrigues. Through treatment sessions at RMR, I feel like I have taken 10 years work of stress and fatigues off my body!! This has resulted in less headaches, better posture, waking up NOT sore, and not relying upon Advil!! The process is intense and you will get out of what you put in it....so challenge yourself during the sessions. If you suffer from pain, aches, headaches check out RMR! If you work a desk job, commute too much, and have frequent injuries, check out RMR!
After my first session, my legs felt better, worked better, and moved better. After four sessions, it was easier to get up, easier to stand, and easier to walk.
After my first session, my shoulder muscles were looser and felt more stable. After my second session, I could turn my head more easily. I recommend Rossiter.
I had tendinitis in my arm for 7 months. After trying other methods, I finally got what I needed with Rossiter. You need to try it, it's amazing!

Rossiter was the turning point for my shoulder. It really worked. The second session improved even more, and my shoulder hasn't given me any trouble since.

Rossiter helped me when nothing else did. After my first session, my wrist improved immediately, and my hip and thigh are gradually improving. Try it, you'll like it.
After a few sessions, I noticed a gradual, definite improvement in flexibility and pain relief. For people considering Rossiter, go for it! I'm sure it will help, maybe more than you ever expected.
Rossiter was beneficial to my knee condition. My knee became more functional and flexible, and it continually felt better and better.
My Achilles pain was nearly abolished after one session! I could run without feeling pain.

I was in constant pain and considering another cortisone shot (for my shoulder). With the Rossiter sessions my pain lessened and lessened...I have no pain, and full range of motion in my shoulder
I noticed immediate improvement, and the muscles in my forearms didn't 'ping' anymore. After more sessions I had increased range of motion in my wrists and shoulders.
After four sessions, I had no more wrist or elbow pain, and improved range of motion. Rossiter is great!

Shelly has an intuitive way of feeling the troule areas and working out the issues. She is amazing and I highly recommend her to anyone.....kudos to you Shelly!!!!
Rossiter was recommend to me after I hurt myself running hamstring) and injured my shoulder in trx. I had tried massage and Chiropractor prior. Rossiter was the FINA::Y provided relief. Shelly couldn't be any nicer and knowledgeable. Can't recommend her and Rossiter enough.
Due to a multitude of sins from all kinds of activity and work my neck, shoulder and back were like rocks and the pain was high on the chart. I tried massage, stretching, acupuncture, cupping and the list goes on and while there was some recovery I was still not pain free. Finally my acupuncturist suggested Rossiter. Shelly of Rocky Mountain Rossiter did an evaluation and was optimistic that she could help me recover. After a few weeks of treatment I am back to my old scary self. The pinpoint stretching got me to normal range of motion and decreased the pain.
The most important skills I acquired from Shelly really allows me to help myself when I sense my body is getting in trouble and it put me in charge of a healthy recovery and maintenance.
Shelly has helped me relieve chronic hamstring and hip pain that had been plaguing me for over a year. Massage and chiropractic had not fixed it, strengthening helped but wasn't the cure, acupuncture was relaxing but didn't take away the pain. Rossiter helped me get back to long-distance running and bike riding. Thanks Shelly.
What a powerful, skillful healer Shelly is!
Keith and Shelly are Rossiter Ninjas! They know so much about the body, pain patterns, and how to help their clients get out of pain. They are also excellent trainers for up and coming Rossiter Coaches. I am a client as well as a fellow Rossiter Coach, taught by the Beyerles. They believe in their work, and in supporting others on their path as healers. You can feel confident booking an appointment with Rocky Mountain Rossiter, your needs WILL be met.
I have been dealing with plantar fasciiitis since Apr 2013. I have gone to two different podiatrists and two set s of orthotics. One podiatrists even recommended surgery. It seemed as though nothing would work. I went to Keith and RMR for 5 treatments and am so happy with results. In addition he taught me things to do on my own to stay healthy and I am happy to say I walked on the beach barefoot after fighting this a year! I would not hesitate to recommend Keith and Shelly for anyone in pain and would be back to them in a flash if I have any more myself.
Shelly is so amazing. I took a 3 day motorcycle ride to the Canyon Lands, Utah. returned with about 75 miles in the rain. She decided to work on my shoulders, WOW My neck, shoulders and arms feel amazing. A few months ago I was unable to walk one block, I would be in such horrible pain for hours. She worked on my knees and calves a few months ago. I was able to hike, a short jog, in my motorcycle boots to check out one of the arches. No pain, not once. I have my knees back. Thank you Shelly for all you do.
