What Benefits Can I Expect?

Some people seek Rolfing® and Rolf Movement® as a way to reduce pain and chronic muscle tension. Others use it to improve athletic performance. Rolfing® is used by many professional athletes to break up scar tissue, rehabilitate injuries, and increase range of motion to improve performance and avoid future injuries. Dancers and musicians often use the work to increase comfort in their bodies while performing, as well as avoid repetitive stress injuries. Additionally, some manufacturing companies have employed Rolfing® to decrease workers’ compensation costs due to repetitive stress injuries. And, based on the mind/body connection, many counselors and therapists incorporate Rolfing® in the therapeutic approach. Greater physical support and flexibility ultimately influences emotions and energy levels.

I worked with Judi for a period of 10 weeks and felt like I’d had a total “body lift” with every good thing that comes from that — better posture, deeper breathing, better balance. My back, neck, and shoulder pains were gone. Judi is such a gifted healer. She is also warm and caring and anxious for her clients to feel better. We are so lucky to have her here in Iowa!
