RootHealth started as a collaboration between brother and sister, Jason-MS, CSCS (kinesiologist) and Rachel-PhD (psychologist) Root in Boise, ID. This mind/body duo set forth to optimally effect every patient/client by addressing both the mental and physical condition at once. Eventually, Jason moved to Los Angeles in order to work in a larger market of healthcare practitioners and clientele.
RootHealth Service Philosophy
The RootHealth philosophy is built on the premise of SUSTAINABLE development. Most programs try and place stresses on the body in order to ATTAIN a fast anatomical change. Unfortunately this approach can develop physiological imbalances that perpetuate injury and associated disruptions of the training process. In other words, the methods widely utilized today can lead to more side effects than actual long term health and performance gains.
We develop systematically and have better long term health outcomes with less effort than you ever thought possible! Our services are built upon scientific and experiential methods developed from physical therapy, athletic training, strength and conditioning, and exercise physiology. We are an OUTCOMES BASED COLLABORATIVE service. While our training and conditioning services will optimize the amount of resources needed to reach a goal (the optimally effective dose). The client does have to dedicate a certain amount of time, effort and, most of all, FOCUS in order to attain a certain outcome and meet a certain goal.
Therefore, all of our services are ‘programs’ of development. Think of every program like a college course for your body……there is a frequency of work, a beginning date, an end date, homework and an expected outcome of development for health or performance at the end of YOUR individual class (program). Every successive program lead to greater sustainable long term results. We make sure our clients have a mentality of success at the onset of services so that they get the outcome they are looking for.
In terms of focused development vs. ‘working out’ with a trainer, this video from the Professional Football Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association: Injury Resilience Program exactly expresses our philosophy.
