Personally, I agreed to try Rolfing as a last resort toward the end of my dance career. Even though I had studied dance technique and movement repatterning for years, I was devastated to have developed a case of relentless sciatica.
At the Dr. Ida Rolf Institute I learned I had driven the natural curve out of my lumbar spine by holding my stomach in and flattening my low back as a matter of habit. What a relief I could restore my curvature through structural bodywork! I was so grateful for the emotional support and physical change I realized during my first series, I immediately applied to the Institute to share this profound experience with others.
I am told my touch quality is comforting, being informed by energetic approaches such as Reiki and Ortho-Bionomy. I concentrate to flow energy through channels of connective tissue slowly and in close communication with you. People are often surprised how honoring, satisfying and even relaxing deeper strokes can be when applied with attention to both your verbal and nonverbal cues. In my treatment room, I will always offer you control over the amount of pressure and location of touch therapy on your body.
