Restoring You Naturally Through Rolfing® and the Feldenkrais Method
William and Alice Shaw have worked together professionally since they married 40 years ago. They met in the Oregon State Hospital, where Alice was director of nursing and William was a consulting psychiatrist. Each already was devoted to searching for whatever would truly help their patients; what might be better than the prevailing mix of psychology and medications. In pursuit of this, William had learned from a series of gifted mentors that within every human being is the potential for being fully connected with himself and others, and that seeking this is the most effective pathway to mental, emotional, and spiritual health.
During this time, Alice came to the realization that people must spend time feeling safe and be inwardly childlike in order to heal, so she and William took some of their young adult patients into their home to live as part of their family. In 1976, they incorporated a "clinical ecology" approach to allergy, nutrition, and detoxification, giving them a holistic approach to treating their patients. Eventually, they coined the name Holland Wellness to cover all their healing work, which includes their work in Rolfing® Structural Integration, Color Analysis, and the Feldenkrais Method® .
