About Anne Sotelo
I truly enjoy and love working with people and helping them to heal. I specialize in Rolfing/Structural Integration, Fascial therapies, CranioSacral therapy, Visceral and Neural Manipulation, and Manual Articular therapy. These modalities have been instrumental in aiding my clients to improve from their acute or chronic symptoms. I have ventured into a variety of modalities and have created an eclectic practice mixing Structural Integration, CranioSacral Therapy, Visceral and Neural Manipulation, Energy work together.
Our bodies have an inherent and innate ability to self-heal, I facilitate in this endeavor. I offer a safe environment to support and enhance this process. Utilizing my various skills, I help stimulate the unwinding of chronic holding patterns, trauma or stress the body carries. My clients report that this work enhances their calm state of mind, body and emotions.
It is my love of this work that has brought you to read my profile. I bring together my heart, mind and spirit to be with you on your healing journey. I invite you to call or email me for further information. I work by appointment in Los Angeles.
