Testimonials – Rolfing experiences shared
Rolfing is practiced and applied throughout the world and is a registered service mark in more than 27 countries. It is estimated that more than one million people have received Rolfing work.
Here are just a few voices about Rolfing:
"Athletes always need help with chronic injuries, muscular strains and
overuse. The Olympic athletes wouldn't have as many injuries if they
had appropriate soft tissue therapy. Rolfing is valuable for athletes in
high level competition to address the build up of scar tissue and
disarrangement of myofascial tissue that occurs from training, competition and injury. "
Karlis Ullis, M.D., (team physician for 1992 summer Olympics),
Sports Medicine and Anti-Aging Medical Group in Santa Monica, CA, USA
"Rolfing helped me to find my center of balance for competition; it puts my body in place."
Figure skater Elvis Stojko (Michelle Kwan's partner on ice and in Rolfing)
1998 Olympic Silver Medalists
"I am 73 years old and have advanced scoliosis, which the Rolfing
treatments have definitely begun to help. One of my friends who had
not seen me for awhile remarked on my better posture without
my telling her why."
Mary Elizabeth Nordstrom, President, Moore Vocal Arts
"I send a variety of my clients to a Certified Advanced Rolfer...
People with shoulder and elbow problems, with scar tissue resulting
from injury or surgery, chronic hamstring problems, low back and
cervical spine problems. People that have had chronic problems that have
not been helped by anything else. All those people can be helped with Rolfing."
Jim Montgomery, orthopedic surgeon, Olympic M.D.
