I had been going along okay and then BOOM!- massive pain set in. My Dr suggested Rolfing, so what the heck, I was to the point where I would try anything to make it stop. I do have to say that the sessions themselves are somewhat painful, working the fascia to get it loose, but afterward my pain has been eased tremendously. I have had a knot in my shoulderblade for a year that no one could get out- He made it go away!! A MIRACLE!!! That is like the biggest freedom to get that stabbing knife in the back gone! I have more freedom of movement, and my alignment is already better after 2 sessions. Hope I can stand to make it thru the rest- LOL!
