CHRIS KALISZ

Movement Therapist, Personal Trainer,
Specialist in Exercise Therapy,
NeuroMyofascial Specialist,
Holy Fire Reiki Practitioner,
SRT Co-Founder

Hi! My name is Chris Kalisz and I have been in the health and wellness industry for 11 years working as a Personal Trainer, Specialist in Exercise Therapy and NeuroMyofascial Specialist. After 11 years as a Professional Wrestler and suffering some bad injuries in 2013, I began my journey toward movement therapy. 11 years of working in fitness and rehab I have infused a variety of modalities that I have been trained in to use in my personal practice including Reiki, MAT, Muscle Testing, Fascial Stretch Therapy and SRT.

 

The underlying principle "Hugging Helps Heal" is how we approach SRT in the context of creating a genuine energetic and emotional connection with the client's systems, allowing the body and the conscious mind to relax once it feel safe and secure.  In order to rebalance and reprogram the body, we must look at both the emotional and energetic piece with the physical piece.  SRT has given me some of the best results over the years and now I'd like to share our philosophy and applications with all of you!

ASHLY WENZEL

Movement Therapist,
NeuroMyofascial Specialist
Pilates Teacher, VOILA Practitioner,
SRT Co-Founder

Hi! My name is Ashly Wenzel. My life passion is helping others to alleviate pain and move joyfully. In 2002, I started as an Athletic Coach then Pilates Teacher and NeuroMyofascial Specialist. I was a national champion Synchronized Swimmer and Triathlete until I was hit by a truck while riding my triathlon racing bike.

 

Years of surgery, rehab, and pain changed my life perspective and path. My own recovery lead me to pursue becoming a NeuroMyofascial Specialist and co-develop SRT to bring you our loving therapeutic modality. I feel truly privileged to help others in their healing and share my knowledge with like-minded practitioners that want to make this world a better place.

TERESA BRENNEMAN

South West Team
Pilates Teacher,
VOILA Practitioner,
Neuromyofascial Specialist

Hi! My name is Teresa and I'm part owner of Tricore Group Fitness in Phoenix, Arizona. I'm also the creator of the body positive fitness blog Howtobealion.com.

I use a variety of modalities like functional strength training, Pilates, SRT therapy, and the VOILA method to discover my client's true potential and to dismantle their limiting beliefs about their bodies. I'm a huge believer that pain comes from the intermingling of the body, mind, and soul. In order to heal from the inside out, we have to establish self-love and body respect.

Therefor, I am passionate about helping others to find their "inner lion" by having the courage to seek healing and feel empowered and at-home in their bodies. My journey through over-exercising and disordered eating lead me to healing from the inside-out using Pilates, various forms of bodywork, and Eastern healing methods. Through healing myself, I've learned to heal others. I'm proud to be a part of the growing SRT family and teaching team, and I can't wait to meet you!

JILLIAN CURLEY SCHEULER

North East Team
B.S. Sports Med and Athletic Training
Intuitive Movement Specialist
Corrective Exercise Specialist
Personal Trainer

Hi! My name is Jillian and I am the owner of Collective Energies Fitness. I am also the creator of Between The Racks, a blog devoted to mental, physical and spiritual strength.

 

After studying Sports Medicine and Athletic Training at Norwich University, I fell in love with applying knowledge of healing and unique perspective of the human body to the world of personal training. 11 years after my personal training career began, I was given the amazing opportunity to educate future personal trainers. This gift allowed me the ability to broaden my view of the body, and inspired my true passion of healing and uncovering buried strengths. 

Using my intuition, education and experience I am guided to offer my clients individualized care specific to their unique needs using a variety of modalities. Whether your goal is pain management, increased mobility, corrective movement, better performance or just a desire to feel good, I look forward to helping you unlock the next step of your journey.

KYLE COLLIER

North East Team
Personal Trainer,
Soft-Tissue Specialist
SRT Specialist

Hi! My name is Kyle Collier. My journey from Personal Trainer to Soft-tissue specialist has been an interesting one. Studying martial arts from an early age, I grew to love Muay Thai and multiple styles of Jiu Jitsu to name a few. After years of honing my craft through school and with martial arts I competed in a few tournaments and won a Gold medal and "Fight of the Year." Unfortunately I also suffered numerous injuries along the way which led me to a paradigm shift in my approach to physical recovery and wellness. I discovered the effects of Fascial Stretching and realized that working with this style of healing was my true calling. My goal is to help people relieve pain and function normally again. I started my own practice as Honey Badger Fitness and Wellness and have a team of therapists who help with my practice. My philosophy is live well, move free. Upon discovering SRT along with my fellow team mates, I realized how efficient and amazing it is to add to my already extensive arsenal of movements and therapies. There is never too much to learn, and our team can't wait to share our style with you!
