Lindsey Hansen-Sturm

Lindsey Hansen-Sturm’s spent many years as a competitive swimmer, tri-athlete and completing her doctorate in Chiropractic. The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® was the missing link Lindsey was searching for. Now, all the concepts that Lindsey has been studying concerning human body wholeness and its self healing capabilities have become a living experience through GYROTONIC® exercises, and has led her to pursue advanced courses in both the Gyrotonic methodology and Cranial-Sacral Therapy. Lindsey is a GYROTONIC®  Level I Master, GYROKINESIS® Level I and Level 2 Master Trainer,  and a Jumping Stretching Board Master Trainer. The GYROTONIC® principles have helped reshape Lindseys Chiropractic practice into one that now emphasizes cranial-sacral therapy, acupuncture and soft tissue techniques.
