Who Benefits from Rolfing?

People from all walks of life benefit from Rolfing, including:

  • People riddled with Chronic Pain and Stress (i.e. from whiplash, car accidents, sports injuries, repetitive muscle strain from factory and computer occupations).
  • Computer users suffering from hand, arm, neck, and shoulder pain.
  • Athletes, Dancers, Musicians, and other people interested in improved performance.
  • Students of Yoga, Meditation, and Martial Arts.
  • Women preparing their bodies to better handle the extra weight and strains from pregnancy and labor.
  • Women experiencing post-childbirth low back and pelvis pain.
  • Children of all ages, including toddlers. Pre-teenagers gain balance to help them through the emotional time of puberty.
  • People in psychotherapy, by facilitating a deeper connection to their emotional conflicts. People may experience considerable psychological/spiritual growth as the emotional history stored in their bodies is released.
