Announcement Regarding Coronavirus:

I hope each of you is well and safe amid the sudden uncertainty. May those who are vulnerable among us receive protection and timely treatment.

I’ve made the decision to stop seeing clients for now, because of the COVID-19 outbreak.

We don’t know enough to be sure there are any precautions that will absolutely ensure safety, and I don’t want to risk being a vector for spreading the coronavirus to my clients. I’ll reevaluate as we all learn more in the coming days and weeks. Once we see how the first spike in sick people develops, and once testing is widely available, I hope it will be safe to resume with extra precautions.

I’m more than happy to be a resource for you in the meantime if I can, as far as strategies and cues for posture, movement, and coping. I love what I do, and I will be missing sharing it, so feel free to reach out any time!

Let’s all take care, and whenever we can touch in with a sense of peace and courage, let's share it with those who need it.

How many sessions should I receive?

Rolfers typ­i­cal­ly work in a series of ses­sions. The num­ber of ses­sions depends in part on your goals as a client. I usu­al­ly rec­om­mend see­ing how you feel after one ses­sion if you’re unsure about set­ting up mul­ti­ple ses­sions.

The clas­sic series is the “Ten Series”, as devel­oped by Dr. Rolf. With each ses­sion build­ing on the one before, the Ten Series address­es the entire struc­ture of the body sys­tem­at­i­cal­ly, allow­ing for any amount of vari­a­tion to work with each par­tic­u­lar clien­t’s needs. There are nat­ur­al stop­ping places with­in this series (after the first, third, and sev­enth ses­sions) for those clients who are unsure about com­mit­ting to all ten.

Work­ing with­in the frame­work of a Ten Series enables the Rolfer not only to address local prob­lem areas, but to get at all the deep-seat­ed com­pen­sa­tions and inter­re­lat­ed issues that oth­er­wise might con­tin­ue to dis­rupt the body. And it pro­vides the time nec­es­sary to allow for a deep and last­ing rein­te­gra­tion of the whole body.

There are oth­er options besides the Ten: A short­er series or a sin­gle ses­sion can be tai­lored to a clien­t’s spe­cif­ic needs. While not as com­pre­hen­sive as a series of ten, short­er series can still be of great benefit—and may some­times be more appro­pri­ate.
