A Lot More About Lu

Lu Mueller-Kaul, LMT, Certified Advanced Rolfer™, Rolf Movement® practitioner, Rolf Institute faculty. (Physician’s license only for Germany)
Lu offers mentoring and supervision for manual therapists in addition to seeing clients in her offices in Boulder, CO, and Orlando, FL. Zoom coaching for clients with chronic conditions is also available.
Narrative bio:
Lu is a manual therapist and has been treating pain with myofascial techniques and movement therapy since the 1990s. She started her career in alternative medicine as a naturopathic physician in Germany and later came to the United States to study Rolfing® Structural Integration. In 2008, seeking to offer patient-centered medical massage treatments, Lu founded “Balance Orlando” in Florida and employed highly educated massage therapists. Today, Lu is the medical director and mentors the therapists on her frequent Florida visits.

She believes a patient’s independence should be a therapist’s highest goal, and has focused on creating an environment where her staff can build lasting relationships, focus on the patient’s real needs, and deliver long-term healing. Her approach to Structural Integration is guided by what she learns from her clients and by evaluating the latest research.

Today, Lu teaches in Boulder, CO, at the Dr. Ida Rolf Institute, particularly physiology and manual therapy skills. She continues to see clients and patients in Orlando a few times a year, but usually at her office in Boulder.
