EP008—For Next-Level Success, Question Your Beliefs—DANIEL CHRISTOFFERSON

What’s keeping you from achieving next-level success? For most of us, fear gets in the way, and we create self-imposed limitations based on what we think is possible or available to us. But what if you stopped to question those made-up limits on what you can achieve?

Our host, Daniel Christofferson, is the Founder and CEO of Holistic High Performance, a state-of-the-art performance and recovery center based in Seattle, Washington. He has been working in structural integration since 1996, helping thousands of clients transform their lives through the alignment of body, mind and soul. Best known for working with athletes, Daniel and his team support clients in realizing relief from pain, recovering from injury, and fulfilling their optimal athletic potential.

On this episode, Daniel goes solo to address a listener question around his journey to creating the Holistic High Performance Podcast. He explains his decision to go to massage school after college and describes how he came to work with Hellerwork practitioners Maureen Warren and Donna Bajelis before starting his own SI practice. Listen in for Daniel’s insight on doing more of what feeds your energy and learn how to spark transformation by questioning the artificial limits you’ve placed on yourself!
