Professional Athletes Benefiting from Rolfing

Athletes like Minnesota Vikings, Capt. Of Offense, Cris Carter demand a lot from their bodies. Just last year a high ankle sprain took him out of the game, until he received help from Wayne Henningsgaard, his Certified Rolfer. Cris says, "Six physicians predicted I would be out of the game for five weeks with that high ankle sprain. Wayne had me back out in a week– I played the (Dec. '99) Green Bay game and within two weeks I was playing full force again and ran a 100 yard game."

"For a professional athlete, your job requires you to be at your optimum best," says Qadry Ismail, Baltimore Raven's wide receiver. "If you are not at your best your performance decreases drastically. I depend on Rolfing for injury prevention and recovery. Whatever I come into the session with I know will be gone by the end, no matter how severe or how minor, when I see my Rolfer, Wayne Henningsgaard. I wind up not missing a game, not missing a beat and that makes a big difference to me."
