• "[I liked most] how my body felt the next few days; not just hours. I felt healthy, strong, and motivated to maintain my health. I felt like real progress was made in improving my condition rather than a temporary fix. [I would describe it as] seemingly a blend of several different body work techniques, but really a practical therapy for overall health and not just "fixing" something." -Chase

FAQs

Rolfing® SI can be intense, but should not be overly painful. "No pain, no gain" is a phrase that does NOT apply to Rolfing SI. You and I will be communicating throughout the session. Please, let me know if it's too much. And, as my favorite instructor likes to say, it's too much if you have to hold your breath, tense another part of your body, or go to your mountain meadow. We'll be working as a team and we'll work within your comfort level. I use a broad spectrum of touch, depending on what your body needs. My clients regulary fall asleep during sessions, so it can't be that painful.

Athletic shorts and a t-shirt are ideal, but I will work with whatever you're most comfortable in. You'll be getting up and walking occasionally during the average session. The more of your body I can see, the better, but I also need you to be comfortable.

Each session will be different and I tend to work asymmetrically. If I work on your right foot it doesn't mean I'll work on your left. Whether we're working on a specific problem or working towards better overall alignment, we'll always be working with the whole body, and where you're at each day. You may be sitting, standing, or lying in a variety of positions while we work. Rolfing SI is not a spectator sport. Unlike with massage, you are expected to be a participant. Each session is your session and you should ask for what you need, whether it be more or less pressure, a different speed, or attention in a different area. This video will give you a better idea of what your session will look like.

Both before and after, drink plenty of water. Hydration is very important for tissue to move quickly and less painfully, as well as for flushing toxins after the work. If you are sore after a session, an epsom salt bath and arnica can be very helpful. If you are curious about comparing your body before and after sessions, you may want to take some pictures (front, back, and each side) of yourself against a blank wall. Another option is to take some video of yourself doing your most common activity (running on a treadmill, golfing, etc.). Taking before and after pictures or video can show results after one session, but is especially powerful for those who can commit to at least 3-5 sessions.

No. While the traditional Rolfing 10-series is a great way to systematically go through the entire body, I do not do the 10 session series unless a client specifically requests it. Using SourcePoint Therapy, I am able to get to the root of the problem much faster. Each session is complete in itself and is designed to address your most immediate concerns. Generally, 3-5 sessions is a good place to start, after which we will both have a good idea where your body is at and how to proceed. I leave it up to you if and when you'd like to come back for your next session. My goal is always to get you to a place where your body feels so good that you don't need Rolfing anymore; that may be after twelve sessions or it may be after just one.

My left wrist says "Know Yourself" and my right says "Honor Yourself."
