Rachel Clay helps people with scoliosis and posture issues return to normal life without pain, feel better about their body image, prevent worsening of their curves, and avoid surgery using specialized exercise!
She understands the frustrations and confusion surrounding life with scoliosis - because she lives with it too!
Diagnosed with a mild curve as a teen, Rachel was told to watch and wait because the curve wasn't bad enough to cause issues later in life ... BUT IT DID.
As a professional dancer in college, she thought she had great posture and strength. However, as time went on she began to struggle with numbness and weakness in her right leg that no one could explain. Other than her scoliosis, her x-rays and MRIs were normal. Her physical therapy colleagues could not find a clear cause of her symptoms. She could not fix herself- and boy was that frustrating!
Then Rachel discovered THE SCHROTH METHOD and learned that a little scoliosis can make a big difference after all. Through the very specific exercises she implemented, she was able to solve the numbness and weakness in her right leg! She was able to control her posture and intermittent pain! She could even perform balance tasks in dance better!
Scoliosis can be a scary diagnosis and the road to managing is not clearly paved. Rachel is passionate about being a guide for those who do not know what to do about their posture problem.
She wants kids and teens to have access to the exercises she did not, so they can thrive and minimize issues later in life.
She wants to give hope to adults that have been told, “There is nothing you can do except surgery,” or “Just live with it.”
BECAUSE YOU CAN DO SOMETHING to take charge of your scoliosis and Rachel wants to show you how.
