Structural Integrity, Functional Elegance, Healing the Past, Embracing the Future

Gravity is the great healer. Gravity is to our posture and body what wind is to the sails of a boat and the current is to the hull and rudder. It shapes us and guides us. Struggle against it, and it becomes your enemy for life. You will suffer. Work with it and it becomes your friend and healer.

What if poor posture, pain, lack of strength, poor coordination, injuries, surgeries, and/or poor self image could be avoided or vanquished?

Learn to feel better, release and balance your fascia and connective tissue tensions, align your body, balance how you move, and change troublesome body beliefs that slow you down.

Strengthen, straighten up, perform all tasks with ease and grace, regain lost energy, prevent falls and injuries, heal from injury and/or surgery quickly, and establish and maintain a deep rapport with your body, movement, and self.

Meet Stuart Bell

Stuart broke his neck in 1971 while serving in the U.S. military.
Nothing really seemed to help completely, so he began a journey of learning, observation, discovery, and recovery.

He noticed that people were most limited by pain, posture, and tension. Accidents, traumas, and poor childhood development and body education are generally the preventable cause of imbalances and alignment problems. Physical education and sports training, while sometimes useful, often lack what we really need in the way of basic, necessary movement learning and skills. In fact they often cause later problem behaviors, postural and structural imbalances, poor performance, leading to those awful aches, and pains we now have.

Along the way, Stuart studied physical-structural change work, anatomy, and developmental and movement learning. He completed comprehensive trainings in Hellerwork Structural Integration, Feldenkrais Functional Integration, Alexander Postural Integration, Yoga, Contact Improvisation, Visceral-Cranial-Sacral Balancing, PNF, and Joint Mobilization.

During his 35 years experience teaching and in private practice he’s developed his own unique perspective and approach to helping people get the most out of their body and movement. He helps them focus on grace, ease, performance, resilience, and reliability.

Stuart helps clients experience the excitement, pleasure, joy, and happiness of living in a body that moves well, feels marvelous, and looks great.

Life without structural and functional fascial connective tissue balancing is like sailing without trimming your sails and rudder. It’s inefficient, slow, and tiring.

Movement with a misaligned body and unbalanced posture is like driving your car with misaligned wheels and unbalanced tires. It wears you out, and it’s dangerous.

Trying to stand and live in gravity without a balanced aligned posture and movement is like flying an airplane without using trim tabs on ailerons and rudders. It requires far too much effort, attention, fuel, and work.

Performance, physical and mental, in an untuned body is like driving a race car with an untuned motor, a distorted frame, and wobbly suspension. You can’t win.


Look younger, feel better.
itality, reliability, and longevity.

Hellerwork is a system of bodywork that combines structural alignment, body movement education, and verbal dialogue. It is designed to realign the body’s structure for overall health, improvement of posture, and reduction of physical and mental stress.

Hellerwork improves posture and brings the body’s natural structure into proper balance and alignment with gravity and life. This realignment can bring relief from general aches and pains; improve breathing; and relieve physical and mental stress.

Hellerwork has also been used to treat such specific physical problems as scoliosis,  chronic back, neck, shoulder, and joint pain as well as repetitive stress injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome. It’s frequently used to treat and prevent athletic injuries and surgeries.
