“Understanding and addressing the source of our issues is the key to creating lasting change.”
For 25 years, Helen Ronnenbergh of Block Therapy Bliss struggled with cellulite. After years of trying to get rid of it, Helen was introduced to Block Therapy and was amazed by the results. She was more flexible, less stiff, and her cellulite began to disappear. This marked the beginning of her journey to becoming the first Block Therapy Instructor in Australia!
With a lifetime career in IT, Helen is familiar with the negative effects of hunching over a desk most of the day. She became a Block Therapy Instructor to help women in their 50s who suffer from chronic pain, as she once did. With the use of online Block Therapy programs and personalized assessments, Helen can now help women feel pain-free again without leaving their homes.
Helen describes the effects of Block Therapy as “winding back the clock” of age in her body. She can now get out of bed like she did 20 years ago and continue “burning up the dance floor” while swing dancing, and it is her goal to bring this feeling to the women of Australia and beyond!
