My first baby was induced and weighed 10lbs. The hard birth did not surprise me but the sensation after the birth did, feeling like I had been hit by a bus on both sides. My thoughts afterwards consisted of can I crawl under a rock somewhere for a while... As there were fertility issues on both sides of the family, we thought if we wanted no. 2 we had better get on with it.
Some recent testimonials...
After the birth of my daughter, for 15 months I’ve endured pain, especially in my back. After many specialists I came to Rolfing. In one session I noticed significant freedom to be able to walk and stand and keep up with my toddler.
Rolfing relieved my chronic hip and back pain. Before that I had tried physical therapy, massage, acupuncture, and osteopathy. While the other methods gave me temporary relief, Rolfing combined with some strengthening techniques means that I am once again pain free.
I played rugby for years and collected a number of injuries which left me with shoulder and back pain. After receiving Rolfing I now have no pain, and I’m able to enjoy sports again.

“Trauma is a fact of life, it does not, however, have to be a life sentence. ” Peter A. Levine
When the nervous system is overwhelmed, whether by long-term stress or trauma, the body can get stuck, holding pain and reducing movement. Rolfing gently and powerfully releases trauma caught in the body. By working through the body, Rolfing can bypass the critical part of the brain and reach the emotion that needs to be released.
“Athletes always need help with chronic injuries, muscular strain and overuse. Rolfing supports structural realignment for greater efficiency of movement and more precise movement.” – Dr. Karl Ullis, Olympic Physician
