The Way of the Elbow

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 of stifling the body’s native grace. The whirlwind of daily life all too often leaves us disembodied, dis-integrated, and dis-membered.

My job as a Rolfer is to reawaken the innate capacity for organic and harmonious movement that we all possess. 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 may 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.

Sessions are $150 and usually last between an hour and an hour and a half.

Please find the Writings page for a number of short articles and videos inspired from Rolfing—from practical exercises to metaphysics!

For more writings by the same author but in a different context, please also find my other websites, (2013-2017), (2018-2022), and (2022 to present).

      Like Karen in California, I too know that rolfing works–it has worked for me. No other system–masssage chiropractic or physical therapy hit the right spot so quickly and led to eventual riddance of an old and persistent aggravation, Connie from Wisconsin

        Yay!! I knew I wasn’t alone in my thoughts. Glad you posted Constance. Now tell us Max, why rolfing works! I know it’s hard to summarize, but we all need to be educated just a bit. Enough to know we need to ‘sign up.’
        Why it’s different from massage or Traeger and why its long lasting. I’m so excited for you to be in practice now. Just wish you were closer!!
