Executive editor of Real Health – the black wellness magazine, Hilary Beard, shares her experiences with Rolfing:
When I got up, the pain was gone and I haven’t experienced it since. At the end of the session, when I went to put on my shoes, he told me I’d need to throw out my orthotics (that she had gotten from a podiatrist when she complained of heel pain).
“But I paid $500 for them!”
“They will lock your feet into the painful position,” he said. “I just freed you of the pain. Why would you put yourself back in it?”
His explanation kind of made sense, but I wasn’t convinced. My motherwit told me not to throw out something I paid $500 for. So I held onto them for years. But I never needed them—I never experienced any pain again!
