I work on conditions such as Fibromyalgia, MS, Polio, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, Cancer, frozen shoulder, torticollis, knee and hip replacements, vertebral fusions, disk removal and injury recovery related injuries. In the Sports Arena I have provided Alternative Healing to local and visiting professional sports team players and their staff. My FORMAL TRAINING began while I was traveling through out the US studying Dance on the college circuit. This took me to NYC where I attended the New York School for Rolfing's first pilot course "Perceptual Body" and became Certified in Dance Therapy at NYU's New School for Social Research. I earned a Yoga Teacher Instructor Certification at the YWCA, before completing my BFA in Dance at Mary Mount Manhattan College in NYC. After completing my studies in NYC, I moved to Oahu Hawaii where I began studying Hawaiian Lomi Lomi and upon returning to AZ, I began studying Hawaiian Energetics, Light Work and received continuing education for the techniques listed as my current services offered above. WORK HISTORY: NYC: Reflexology (private practice). AZ: Boulders Resort and several other Resorts and Hotels through out the Valley as an independent contractor. When not on call in the tourist industry I worked part time as an employee of Scottsdale Family Health Care and rented an office space at the Best Part Hair Salon. I opened my first private practice office in downtown Scottsdale in 1991, Dreams in Beauty Day Spa in Sandpoint, ID in 2000 and Peggy Richards private practice in Payson, AZ in 2018. I am currently offering my services through out the year in AZ and on a limited basis in Sandpoint, ID. Through weaving techniques together or using them exclusively, my goal is to assist you in accomplishing your goals. Whether it be for maintaining increased flexibility, structural alignment, joint stability, stress relief or injury recovery or pain relief. I am available to assist you. I enjoy working on individuals and groups! When I see people take what they get out of their sessions into their everyday life as being an improvement to their lifestyle, I consider myself very fortunate to have been given a chance to make a difference.

I have been fortunate enough to have had massages for about 15 years with a number of massage therapists. In my opinion, Peggy Richards is among the best of the best. As you can imagine, that is no easy feat. Peggy has many different modalities that she commands, but beyond that, she has a touch that few can compare to. I could not recommend her any higher. She is a MUST TRY. You’ll thank me for the referral. Larry T.

Peggy did a great job on my sore muscles. She has a cool electric table that is able to go up and down so she is able to move it in order to get to the desired position or pressure she needs. It was my first experience with rolfing and I enjoyed it and felt it really got down to the deeper tissue where I was really sore. Wonderful experience.

Lyle, I am glad you enjoyed my electric table and the session. I look forward to seeing you again as needed.

Peggy listened to my words, assessed my structure and accurately determined that I would greatly benefit from the Rolf Method. We've had our first session and I was pleasantly surprised that even with just that one session, I felt dramatically better. I am looking forward to continuing on the Rolf journey with her.
Peggy Richards Alternative Therapies & Meditation's reply
Thank you Tracey, I am very glad you received some benefit from your Rolf session and that you have signed up for the 10 session Series and 2 Movement sessions that go with it. I look forward to continuing to give you my best!
