My first career was teaching and performing classical guitar. I received my master's degree in guitar performance in 1980 from SMU and taught in the junior colleges for 13 years. I developed a problem with my left ring finger and subsequently received a few Rolfing® Structural Integration sessions, which resolved the problem of a pinched nerve in my wrist and I felt great.
A year later I lifted my wife's grandmother out of her wheelchair and hurt my back. This time I went through a full series of Rolfing (10-12 sessions). Not only was my back better and moving easier, I started to feel alive for the first time in years. It was like the difference between driving a dependable 15 year-old car versus driving a brand new Jaguar.
Yes, that's what I mean by 'alive'. I felt like I had just won the lottery. I watched my wife and daughter go through the process of Rolfing and I watched the changes in their bodies and noticed how the dynamics in our home changed — we had a house full of lively people! I knew I had to find out what Rolfing was all about and began my studies in 1990.
During my college career I worked in Emergency Room at Denton County Hospital as an orderly and was fascinated by what I saw. The idea of studying medicine was planted, but I wanted to see what I could do with the guitar and was attracted to the creative arts. I found that in rolfing I could combine my love of art with the study of the human body.
There are many dimensions to Rolfing and as you begin to move toward a more integrated structure many doors begin to open. We have these words — body, mind and spirit. We think they are separate parts of our being, but through rolfing we begin to realize it is all of us -- our totality. When you begin to improve one aspect of your being, everything else is free to jump onboard!
Being a Rolfer is an exciting journey. Years ago when I asked my Rolfer if I had the potential to become a Rolfer, he replied, "I don't know, but going through the process is worth the price of admission." I wasn't sure I wanted to invest $25,000 to simply experience the process, but in retrospect he was right. I got just what I needed and more.
Rolfing helps to restore order to the body after surgeries, accidents, injuries, sickness, repetitive movements, and the stresses of every day living.
Every bone, muscle, nerve, blood vessel, and internal organ has its own individual wrapping of connective tissue or fascia. These structures should be able to glide across each other like silk scarves during normal movement.
When there is insult to the structure, fascia gets stuck, twisted, and pulled out of position. Nerves can become pinched and trapped and the resulting adhesions are often uncomfortable and painful.
Rolfing involves reorganizing the body by facilitating proper balance and alignment.
When the body is misaligned, the result is stiffness, aching muscles, and exhaustion. Chronic patterns of strain in the body make life frustrating. Moving through normal activities becomes difficult and tiresome.
The process of Rolfing is a joint effort between the Rolfer and the client. The Rolfer™ works layer by layer through the fascia, applying appropriate pressure as necessary, in order to mobilize structures and begin to restore flexibility and movement to the joints. Posture and breathing are improved. Movement becomes more graceful and coordinated and athletic performance is enhanced.
