About Tom Marshall

Tom Marshall has been in practice doing Hellerwork Structural Integration since completing his training in 1985. He has continued his education with Joseph Heller through advanced workshops and classes. Continually updating his skills, Tom is studying Visceral Manipulation and Cranio-Sacral Therapy with the Upledger Institute.

Tom is known for his strong, yet highly skilled and sensitive touch, as well as for his expertise in body mechanics and movement. Throughout his life he has worked with skills that require balance, strength, and sensitivity. From designing, shaping and testing surfboards to the delicate finger work required to play saxophones and flutes as a professional musician.

Teaching people to breathe is one of Tom's areas of expertise. From his background as a professional musician and his knowledge of yoga, Tom knows the impact that relaxed breathing can have on our daily life. Restricted breathing is one of the main symptoms of anxiety, panic attacks and depression. His sensitivity in working with these problems has been a key to many people's health and well being.

Working with people of all ages, from babies and children to elderly clients, Tom is particularly gifted when working with people going through crisis and life transitions.

Tom has had the personal experience of dramatic change in his own life as a result of Hellerwork. From helping people improve their posture and eliminate pain, to helping people be more consistent and confident in sports and performance arts, to delivering a more powerful presentation at a meeting, with his experience he can better guide people to discover their own potential.

When he is not working Tom spends as much time as possible with his wife, his son, and his two daughters, and still manages to get in an occasional surfing trip or a few minutes on the sax and flute.
