Who Needs Rolfing?
The better question might be: Who DOESN’T need Rolfing?!
Rolfing is the ideal therapy for people looking for a natural solution to pain relief. It’s the kind of therapy you turn to when you’re unwilling to take pain lying down.
Pain strikes people from many walks of life, from athletes to office workers. Whether you’re a pro soccer player nursing a knee injury or a computer jockey fighting neck and upper back pain, Rolfing can help to restore balance to your body and flexibility to your muscles.
From artists to athletes, here are some examples of people who have turned to Rolfing to keep them bringing their A-game:
Willie Nelson, songwriter: “My wife recommended [Rolfing] highly”, says Willie Nelson, “…The first of ten sessions fixed [my back pain],” reported the New York Times, on Feb. 23, 1995.
Joe Greene, two-time U.S.A. Olympic bronze medal long jumper says, “Rolfing works. It really makes a huge difference. I’ve been in track and field a long time and wish I had known about it sooner. My stomach tenses and my hips tighten when I jump. The Rolfing bodywork helped me to breathe and I felt taller.”
Elvis Stojko, 1998 Olympic Silver Medalist stated: “Rolfing helped me to find my center of balance for competition; it puts my body in place.”
Karlis Ullis, MD, (team physician for 1992 summer Olympics), Sports Medicine and Anti-Aging Medical Group in Santa Monica, CA: “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.” Dr. Ullis has provided medical expertise to athletes at five Olympic games, including Lillehammer, Albertville, and Barcelona, in the fields of figure skating, cross country skiing, bobsleigh, biathlon, track and field and other sports.
