Got Pain? Here’s a Solution


By Susan Authement Dunnam

Have you ever heard of the Rossiter System®? Perhaps not, but if you’re in pain, you should! It’s a series of powerful and effective techniques that address structural pain and restriction of movement at its source, the body’s fascia, ligaments, tendons, collagen, and elastin—collectively called connective tissue. Tight connective tissue can be the source of stress, immobility and pain in the body. Lower back pain, hip pain and shoulder pain can be quickly and easily alleviated by using the Rossiter System. The body-wide “locking” technique and weight work together to loosen tight tissues with unprecedented speed, safety and profound results.

The Rossiter System, a two-person pin-and stretch release technique, quickly restores connective tissue to its natural, healthy state. With strategic anchoring of tissue by the practitioner’s foot, you execute specific motions simultaneously while your entire body is in a “locked” position. This process creates a tensile, body-wide framework which delivers more extensive and longer lasting results. It’s different because you stretch your own body from the inside out with a Rossiter practitioner’s assistance. The system’s proprietary locking technique creates tension in your entire body as you do the directed stretching moves, giving you surprisingly effective and fast results.

This is a powerful new way to prevent and relieve pain, regain increased range of motion, improve circulation and nerve conduction and enhance performance. You are fully in charge of the session, and results are generally instantaneous, profound and life-changing.
If this sounds complicated, it isn’t! Removing lower back pain, hip pain, in fact, all kinds of pain, is incredibly simple to learn and do.

If you’re ready to take care of your body in a whole new way, the Rossiter System’s breakthrough techniques are for you! There are no medications, no splints, no injections and no risky surgeries. Thousands of bodywork, fitness and health professionals have been trained in this modality over the last 26 years. Hundreds of thousands of individuals have benefited from the results. You could be next!

Rossiter System’s first priority is safety for not only the client, but for the practitioner. Rossiter is designed to completely protect the practitioner from any strain or injury by utilizing body mechanics throughout each session. Rossiter practitioners are able to have full time practices without suffering common ailments that most bodyworkers eventually have.

As a Rossiter System coach, I have experienced the benefits of this first hand. As a health and wellness professional, I use my body as a tool and I stand sometimes long hours in a day. I prefer to be barefoot and that has caused issues in both my back and my feet. I had also started developing Plantar Fasciitis until I employed the Rossiter techniques. After two sessions, I was completely pain free! I know if the tightness starts up again, I am able to remedy the situation without drugs or shots.

I was introduced to Rossiter through the Pilates Method Alliance. I found it to be so beneficial, I decided to become a Rossiter coach and introduce it to the Emerald Coast. There are the only few studios offering the Rossiter System and the nearest one is in Atlanta.

Destin Pilates Center is offering Rossiter stretch sessions, which is ideal for hands, shoulders and neck pain due to overuse of electronics such as texting and computer work.
