I've had chronic back pain for most of my adult life, and I had been getting massages to help relieve it. It always helped for a few days, but the results were quick to wear off. My Rolfing experience with Jill was completely different. The sessions were participatory, and more rigourous than massage, but the important thing was that the results lasted. She corrected the alignment of my shoulders, and feet, and all sorts of other stuff, that improved my posture and pain problem considerably. It was unlike any experience I had had before. Jill was patient, and thorough, and explained every single thing she was doing along the way, which was great for my understanding of what was causing my discomfort.The results of Rolfing were immediate, apparent, and fantastic. I highly recommend the entire experience.

To say the truth...at first I was a bit worried by the overheard myth that Rolfing is excruciatingly painful; no matter, I decided to give it a try and found it no more painful than any other massage technique. Jill's professionalism and sincere sense of caring made me feel comfortable from the very first session and I noticed immediate positive results.Within the first sessions I was walking better, breathing better and gained an overall better posture. I noticed my body growing stronger, my mind developing more positive thoughts and gained a new sense of energy and power. I strongly recommend Jill to anyone seeking to improve health and a better holistic relationship with their body.

When I began the ten-series with Jill my body felt like a beat-up jalopy that did not run nearly as well as I felt it should or could. I had lost my sense of center, my body felt discombobulated and as if it wasn't communicating with my brain or my desires of movement. I was stiff and rigid in my jerky movements.With each session my body's flow, rhythm, and sense of unity returned. I swooshed out of her office feeling like a human. The most lovely thing is that the changes that were accomplished have maintained. Unlike other modalities that can just be band-aids, momentary, Rolfing has reminded my body of how it functions at it's best and my body is remembering.

Rolfing was a great experience, and the process helped me gain an understanding of my body-- how it works, and what it needs-- in a different light. I would definitely say that it improved my overall well-being, and working with Jill is a pleasure because she not only treats you, but clearly and carefully explains each step of the process along the way.

My Rolfing sessions have given me the opportunity to experience different ways that my body can feel.  I began my sessions feeling trapped in a painful body with little control, but Jill has helped me to identify new pathways to more physical comfort as well as new skills for managing pain.

I feel like Jill made such a difference in my life, not only in helping me physically but emotionally as well. As a musician of a large instrument, I have all sorts of physical problems that come with the rigors of playing. I sit kind of funny, it takes a lot of strength to make a sound out of my instrument, let alone make it sound nice...It came to a point where deep massages were no longer helping to alleviate any of the pain and discomfort I was feeling, not even during the actual sessions. Short of having to give up my instrument, I was willing to try anything. At my first session I was completely confused, it was nothing like any of the massage sessions I'd had before, gentle or deep. It almost FELT like nothing, to tell you the truth. But when I went home that night, I slept easily and well for the first time in about two years. I used to have to sleep with all sorts of items in bed to help prop me up - wedges under my knees, pillows that cradled my neck, etc etc, and nothing worked.There was one particular instance where after a session I could feel a marked difference in the way I moved. I felt like I was walking REALLY fast afterward because I was freed from whatever restrictions were holding my legs back.  Jill is a fantastic practitioner. She knows what she's doing, but also she's very relaxed in her manner and not pushy in any sense. I had trepidations about starting a whole series of sessions with her but her take on the whole thing was to try one or two sessions first. If it's not for you, then we'll call it a day.With Jill and her practice, I'm glad I did! Not only did the sessions help to alleviate the constant pain, they also made me more aware of how my body SHOULD feel. It was almost like starting over fresh. With a clean slate, I move faster, play better, and am more attuned to potential roadblocks that hinder my movement.

Rolfing has definitely improved my life--mobility, agility & performance have all been enhanced as a result of my experience with you.  I know that you stated that I would continue to receive benefits of the process for about six months.  Well, I continue to experience benefits.  I have even lost weight, which I attribute to the Rolfing as well.  Originally, I was skeptical about any realized benefits but as my coach you helped me to expand my mind to embrace the Rolfing which has been beneficial to my mind, body & spirit.  Thank you for everything. Yesterday was my birthday and unlike previous celebrations I now speak of my age in terms of being years young.  I feel like my cells are constantly renewing and my youthfulness is returning.  Life is grand!!!
