Lu Mueller-Kaul is a highly skilled bodyworker and educator. She started her career at a college for naturopathic medicine in Germany, where she still holds a physician’s license today. Influences of her work came from osteopathic manual therapy, chiropractors, Chinese medicine, and movement therapy. In her practice in Germany, Lu was combining manual therapy with acupuncture and she taught a system of alignment-focused exercises.

After closing her German practice in 2006, Lu studied in the US and Brazil, where she was certified as a Rolfer in 2007.

She has been taking continuing education classes at the Rolf Institute, and finally the  Advanced Rolfing Certification, which required another 6 weeks of training in 2015 and 2016.

Today, Lu owns and operates Balance Orlando, a massage clinic that employs five therapists and three administrators, she works as a Certified Advanced Rolfer, and volunteers as board president of Central Florida’s LGBT Chamber of Commerce.
