Rodney graduated with honors from medical school in 1988.
Diverging from the usual post-graduate medical training of internship and residency, he went straight to a year long training in massage school, and then in 1990 to the Rolf
(Rolfing is typically a deep form of bodywork that seeks to
align the body for greater freedom, balance and ease of movement through a soft tissue approach which allows the skeleton, and all the tissues, to adjust into better alignment without the high
velocity adjustments common to chiropractic.)
He worked for a time doing bodywork, and then in 1992-93
completed one year of
in hospital, post-graduate medical training, in general internal medicine at Stamford Hospital, Stamford, CT.
After this, Rodney went right back to his
practice of bodywork and soon began his study of energetic or spiritual healing. There are many approaches to this type of work and he has studied with several different teachers for thousands of
hours over the years. His intent is always with an intent is to create a positive change in people.
He lives with his wife and 16 year old son in Massachusetts.
