Rolfing/ Structural Integration
Rolfing, Structural Integration & Access Bars.
Rolfing/Structural Integration is a method of manual bodywork suited for everyone from elite athletes to senior citizens. Through this work a client can expect an increase in mobility and range of motion as well as a decrease in aches and pains. Some clients also report a general increase in the feeling of well-being and calmness. Structural Integration has also been described as Yoga by force in that Nick’s Yoga practitioner clients have ad major improvements in their practice following a series from him. Nick works to help his clients get their body working naturally by organizing the soft tissue and balancing the body holistically.
Nick was trained at The Guild for Structural Integration in Boulder, Colorado. He completed his training in 2007 and has been honing his craft since. He has run a corporate wellness program to keep employees out of workman’s comp. He has also trained other practitioners to relieve ubiquitous problems of carpal tunnel syndrome, low back problems, and neck and shoulder issues. Nick’s work addresses the entire body from the bottom of the feet to the top of the head.
Nick has been an Access Bars facilitator since 2015. He performs the standard running of the bars as well as some of the basic body processes. Access Bars is a form of energy work which helps people settle the mental clutter that can infiltrate our lives. Often, a change of perspective is the change that is necessary for people to keep moving forward. Access Bars makes this change easy if not imperceptible. At worst, a bars session feels like you had a great massage. At best, your life will completely change.

Jennifer Hobbs, Ph.D., LMHC
Licensed Mental Health Counselor
Hello! My name is Jennifer Hobbs Ph.D., LMHC and I am a psychotherapist. I started the The Lotus Center in 2013 in an effort to bring together a group of healing professionals for the people of our community and my clients.
Throughout the years, we have come together with many amazing healers to create a community of wellness. As we have continued to grow and expand, a new name, Lotus Wellness Collective, was recently co-created to reflect the progressing nature of our center and the resulting shift to a partnership styled leadership of the center. We began calling our center Lotus Wellness Collective upon our move to a new location as a reflection of our evolved collective leadership and renewal.
On my own wellness journey and in my work as a psychotherapist and helping professional for the past 20+ years, I understand that healing happens for people on a variety of paths of mind, body and spirit. I love my work and feel blessed to work with so many amazing people. I offer psychotherapy to people of all ages and presentations and tend to work best with people attempting to make meaning out of challenging life experiences. I have a passion for yoga and meditation and wellness practices that are intrinsic and unifying. I believe that people’s natural state of being is wholeness and that my work is to be a mirror of my client’s own wisdom as they journey back to themselves.
My hope is that all people who come to here will find peace.
Diann Binns, LCSW, MSW
Licensed Clinical Social Worker
As one of the first members of the Lotus Wellness Collective I have always believed in the idea that Jennifer started with; a group of like minded practitioners working together to heal the whole person…body, mind, and spirit. I’m proud to be part of the group that is doing that here.
I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for many years and have worked in a variety of settings but the Private Practice counseling setting is my passion. I work with adults both as individuals and couples as they navigate through a life that can be complicated and difficult at times. My goal is to assist them in understanding and verbalizing their own needs and work toward living a true and genuine life, which I believe reduces anxiety, stress, and depression. I also have unique training and experience in grief and loss, which I o-en use in my counseling sessions.
It is my hope that you find our office a calm and relaxing place to center yourself and find peace. I know you will find that we all work from a place of love and commitment to improving the world we live in.
