Over the course of six years I started a journey of working with numerous orthopedic doctors, […]

Julice, Esthetician and Business Owner

“I initially sought out Matt for Rolfing services to help alleviate my hip, knee, shoulder and back pain. I suffered from chronic pain in these areas for over 10+ years. I’ve previously seen Orthopedic Surgeons, Physical Therapists, Acupuncturists, have received Chiropractic care along with massage therapy 3x/week for several consecutive years and while they gave […]

Mark wanted to complete an Ironman, but constant tightness in his inner thigh and abdominals were hampering all his training efforts. After months of trying to rest the pain away, he came to Rolfer and functional trainer Matt Hsu at Upright Health for a solution that helped him come back even stronger.
