I would like to thank you for adding Jeremy to your world class group of trainers and specialists at Physical Focus. Since I began training at PF ten years ago, I continue to see you provide great diversity to my training regimen.
Adding Rolfing to the gym has been a godsend for me. My sessions with Jeremy were excellent and I now continue to utilize his skills on a regular basis. I would strongly recommend him to any of your clients.
Jeremy Rosenberg is a Nationally Certified Massage Therapist, a Licensed Massage Therapist in the State of California, and a Certified Rolfer. Jeremy also received a master's degree in anatomy and clinical health science from the University of Delaware's Doctor of Physical Therapy program.
"I use a combination of physical therapy techniques, gentle Rolfing, and therapeutic bodywork, including Thai massage and assisted stretching, to treat a wide variety of conditions. In the past, I've helped people with chronic pain, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, scoliosis, TMJ issues, fibromyalgia, and frozen shoulder, to name a few. I also specialize in working with athletes recovering from injuries and people who want to increase their flexibility. Additionally, Rolfing is excellent in improving the body's alignment, ease of movement, and range of motion, and I use a "kinder, gentler" form of Rolfing in my treatments."
Jeremy will be offering an Introductory Special during the months of May and June. First time clients who are Physical Focus clients pay only $120 for their first 90 minute session and returning clients pay just $140 per session.
You may schedule an appointment by contacting Jeremy by phone 805-665-3728 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is Rolfing?
Rolfing is a body-based therapy that aims to release restrictions in the connective tissue (fascia) and restore or improve healthy function. This is done largely by aligning the body with respect to gravity. This system yields many positive results, including better posture, more freedom and ease of movement, and the resolution of aches and pains. People also tend to notice a greater measure of emotional or psychological well-being in response to this type of treatment. Rolfing may not be the prettiest name for a type of therapy, but it is a very effective way to bring a remarkably higher level of health and well-being to your life. Rolfing is more properly an 'approach' than a method or collection of techniques.
How does it work?
Rolfing usually takes place over a series of ten sessions, each one designed with a specific goal in mind. For instance, session one focuses on opening the path of the breath, working with the tissues of the neck, throat, lungs, ribcage, and respiratory diaphragm to allow full breath - perhaps for the first time in your life. In later sessions, we explore differentiating the tissues and structures of the body, which often become entangled and "stuck" due to repetitive stress, poor posture (think: hunching over a computer, phone, or steering wheel), overuse, and the general demands of everyday life.
Rolfing is a conscious, movement-oriented, client-based approach, where each individual is involved in their own healing process. We are retraining the nervous system to do its job in a vital and healthy manner, effectively and efficiently. Rolfing is not a quick fix. One of the distinguishing features of this therapy is that it is designed as a process, or program of 10 separate sessions, systematically and methodically working through the whole body to provide true, deep, and lasting integration. Individual sessions (one to three or more) are also possible, based on your needs, and can be discussed over the phone or at your first appointment. People sometimes choose to try the first three sessions, which form their own "mini-series," before deciding to continue with the entire ten. The basic 10-series is complete in itself however, many people find that they wish to come occasionally for maintenance treatments. Frequency may vary, but once or twice every six months is generally recommended. It is useful to wait several months before the first maintenance session, as the process of adaptation and integration continues in the body even months after the series is over.
