The result is that clients often report feeling happier, uplifted, and more stable. [Read more…]
Leon Fleisher is a world-renowned pianist and conductor whose career hit an abrupt and stunning roadblock when his right hand stopped working.

But, with the help of Rolfing, he was able to revive his career and perform two-handed after a decades’ long struggle.

These are photos of Elisha.* They have been altered to show only the outlines to protect her identity and more clearly show the contour differences that occurred as a result of the Rolfing 10-series and three Movement Integration sessions.
Important changes include: the resting position of the knees (locked before, relaxed after), horizontalized pelvis with improved activation of transversus abdominis, reduced thoracic curve, and easier position of head and neck.
