About Me

Randi Rebne at the Arboretum

Growing up in Norway, I developed from early on an appreciation of health that relates to the natural abilities of healing inherent in all of us. As I approached adulthood, it was clear that I wanted to pursue medical school, and completed pre-medical studies at University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada.

Because of my interest in a wholistic, non-linear understanding of medicine and healing, I chose to enter chiropractic college, and graduated in 1986 as a Doctor of Chiropractic medicine from Palmer College in Davenport, Iowa. Since then I have lived in Seattle, where I have practiced manual medicine for the past 20 plus years.

My curiosity about health and life as it unfolds continues to grow. For the past 15 years, I have studied the work of osteopaths here and in Europe, and mainly that of Jean Pierre Barral, DO. The more I learn, the more I am in awe of and humbled by the design and processes of the human body.

As a practitioner, it is my aim to do my work in a way that allows each unique body the space to heal. I have learned that the more specific I am in my knowledge of human anatomy and the further I develop my hands in their ability to listen to the anatomy, the better I am able to help others in the process of creating more space for movement and balance. This is my hope -- to be of assistance so that more people can be in comfort, joy, and harmony as they move through their lives.
