Soken obtained his degree as a Certified Rolfer™ in 2006 at the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration in Boulder, Colorado. Upon certification he continued to study in Scottsdale, AZ with internationally recognized Advanced Rolfer Dr. Jeffrey Maitland–author of Mind Body Zen, and one of only seven people in the world authorized to write Advanced Rolfing curricula. Following his work with Dr. Maitland, Soken went to Vienna and Berlin to study the energetic aspects of healing. In 2010, he obtained his degree as a Certified Advanced Rolfer™. Soken is also trained in Visceral Manipulation, a manual therapy that restores vitality to your organs; as well as Craniosacral Therapy, a powerful therapy that restores flow to cerebro-spinal fluid, often resulting in clear-headedness and profound relaxation. Soken has also studied with renowned chiropractors such as Dr. John Brimhall, Native American healers, and received an advanced certification to practice Cold-Laser Therapy, an FDA-approved intervention that restores health to damaged cells.
