Rolfing SI specializes in working with the connective tissue in the body- specifically the fascia. Fascia is found throughout the body- weaving in and around bones, muscles, and organs to create a broad network of connections spanning the entire system. With injury, trauma, repetitive use and time, fascia becomes restricted in specific areas. Because it is all connected localized restrictions can affect the entire system! This is why an alignment issue in the foot can cause pain the neck. Rolfers work with the entire body in a range of positions to free these restrictions and guide the body toward its natural sense of balance and ease.
“I am a 35 year old male who owns and operates an excavating company and is an avid skier, downhill mountain biker and kiter to name a few hobbies. A result of my work and play has been a fair amount of wear and tear on my body in the form of several injuries over the past 4-5 years, including 2 broken humerus bones, ACL reconstructive surgery and a compression fracture of my lower back.
I was introduced to Heidi through a mutual friend who had heard about the severe back pain I was having at the end of our construction season last year. We had just finished a very laborious trail construction project which involved a lot of heavy, awkward lifting. My back and body were to the point where I was having troubles bending over to pick up anything off the ground and I was not sleeping most of the night due to pain.
I came to Heidi with very limited knowledge about Rolfing, yoga, breathing and how they all work together. After the first visit it was evident that I was the perfect candidate to benefit greatly from completing a full 10 series of Rolfing with Heidi. During my sessions Heidi really had an amazing ability to first listen to me explain where my pain was being felt and what stretching exercises I was trying to do help alleviate the pain. Heidi was able to combine my input with her own observations to really cater a Rolfing experience for me and my issues. Heidi was able to go way beyond the Rolfing sessions by also instructing me on better ways to add flexibility and elongation to my stretching routines with tweaks to my technique and breathing. Heidi was such an amazing listener, observer, technician and instructor all in one package.
It has now been several months since our last session. I have been expecting this whole time for my body to revert back to its usual pain and discomfort. However, I have been amazed about the longevity of the treatments and the ability for my body to still benefit from the treatments and instruction Heidi had given me months ago. I sure did not change much in my lifestyle besides being much more aware of my posture and movement of my body along with incorporating a daily stretching routine.
I have and will continue to highly recommend Heidi to all my friends with similar issues. Her knowledge, professionalism, care and dedication to making my Rolfing experience comfortable and effortless was amazing!”
