Testimonials

Here are some statements from clients about their experiences with my Rolfing practice. There is also some question/answer responses collected from clients last year. These are offered here to help you understand the impact of Rolfing for motivated clients.


“Leah has shown me a new way of healing that doesn’t involve physical therapy, surgery or endless doctor appointments with no answers. Leah focuses on making your body whole in your session, which in turn solves the core problem.  The physical healing I have gone through with seeing her is tremendous.

As a runner, I dealt with persistent ankle tendinitis for 4 months last summer, with a “tingly” feeling in my ankle/shins & a clicking noise when I would move my ankle. This pain and irritation prevented me from participating in the sport all together.   I rested my ankle (per my doctor’s orders) and it was not healing. I knew deep down there was another way to heal this.

Then I found Leah and her amazing work. After one session, my tendinitis felt almost non-existent, and the clicking noise I had in my ankle subsided. After my second session, It was gone. Leah had no doubts in my body’s ability to heal, and gave me the courage to try running again and I had no pain after just two sessions.  I also had a very serious knee surgery in 2012, and her work in my body has helped strengthen my right knee and that side of my body.

The pain I had felt in my body was affecting me in such a negative way, and I’m very thankful I found Leah. She has a true, deep passion for the work she does, and such a gentle touch. I encourage anyone to see her who is experiencing any type of pain. Thank you, Leah!”  – woman, 20s

What circumstances brought you to work with me (i.e. what was your chief complaint)?
Back and hip pain with numbness.
Did the originating complaint resolve after working with me?
Yes, after one sessions with Leah my numbness area shrunk almost completely. I had it 2 years and was told by many doctors that I would have it for life. I was so relieved and the pain was improving as well!
Please describe how you felt BEFORE working with me.
I was in constant pain with the added aggravation of numbness. It was exacerbated with high stepping and lifting heavy things with outstretched arms. So hiking up steep hills, biking uphill, ski touring up hill and lifting heavy objects produced intolerable pain.
Please describe how you felt AFTER working with me.
I had so much improvement it was unreal. I started to reintroduce myself to my favorite activities without feeling so much discomfort!
What part of the work we did together was most beneficial for you? What, if anything, did you learn from working with me?
I learned that healing does not have to hurt.
I had no idea what to expect before my first appointment. Even upon leaving I was still slightly confused as to what just happened. But, by the next morning I was a different person. I had sensation on my skin that had been gone for 2 years.
If you use Rolfing for infrequent maintenance sessions, describe the benefits you experience.
If I am not injured or in pain I still want to visit Leah. I feel more aligned with improved posture. I feel like I can take deep breaths and even have eliminated migraine headaches.

What circumstances brought you to work with me (i.e. what was your chief complaint)?

Initially, sciatica pain brought me in.
Did the originating complaint resolve after working with me?
Yes, the originating pain was relieved after a few sessions. I had an ongoing coccyx pain from a prior injury that I had given up being able to manage. The work with Leah definitely improved my quality of life.
Please describe how you felt BEFORE working with me.
I had pain radiating down from my hip down the back of my leg. I also had back pain located in my bra strap area that would wake me up at night. I also had a displaced tailbone that would bother me if I sat for periods of time.
Please describe how you felt AFTER working with me.
My sciatica pain went away, my back pain disappeared and I have the ability to sit for long periods of time without major pain in my coccyx area.
What part of the work we did together was most beneficial for you? What, if anything, did you learn from working with me?
I learned how to listen to my body for cues and how to deal with those cues on my own.
If you use Rolfing for infrequent maintenance sessions, describe the benefits you experience.
Overall positive feelings after maintenance.

Have you brought your children to me? If so, for what outcome?
I have with excellent results. My son recently has grown feet in a short amount of time and was complaining about numerous issues most likely related to that quick growth (teenaged son).
