Did you know NFL players use Rolfing® Structural Integration to get themselves ready for game day? Wayne Henningsgaard is the Rolfer(tm) for several Minnesota Vikings.
Here’s a testimonial from a yogini, a blogger going by the moniker donutszenmom.
From her post “Rolfing works:”
The verdict is in, after this morning’s practice: Rolfing works. I first noticed something when I got to Prasarita Padottanasana B. I usually sail through A, because I can pull with my hands to get my head on the floor. But B and C pose more of a challenge.

He went in with concerns about his deviated septum and a herniated disc. Randy’s Rolfer was Jorge Gonzalez in Florida. Click through to read an excerpt. [Read more…]

Beschreibung des Autors: Schmerzender Rücken kann nicht entzücken. In diesem Bericht wird eine schmerzfreie Behandlung, ganz ohne Chemie, gezeigt. Schmerzen einfach “weg-rolfen”.

The price tag set alarm bells off in my head, especially with all the unsubstantiated and unprovable claims I was reading all over the internet. It sounded like extremely expensive voodoo.

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.
