The body knows how to move, and to do it well. And yet sometimes the body loses touch with this ability. Desk-jobs, chronic stress, fixed patterns of thought and movement, injuries past, present, and future—over time such conditions conspire and accumulate with the effect stifling the body’s native grace. My job as a Rolfer is to reawaken the innate capacity for organic and harmonious movement that we all possess. The whirlwind of daily life all too often leaves us disembodied, dis-integrated, and dis-membered. Rolfing is a journey of embodiment, of integration, of re-membering. It is a kind of pilgrimage to the center of ourselves in which, by dint of circumstance, we have ceased to dwell. I strive to guide my clients along their respective voyages of somatic discovery, though each of them makes the journey him or herself. Each of you is Dante. In the end, I work with you, for you so I am like Virgil in some respects despite being a vastly lesser poet.
