About Our Rolfing Sessions

Having been trained in 1971 by Ida Rolf herself, William acquired some of her vision of the deeper meaning of this work.  Being a Rolfer® contributed mightily to his life journey, and enabled him to do likewise for many of the thousand persons he has rolfed since then.  Dr. Rolf was a seer, a person who saw much more deeply than most others.  She saw not only everyone’s aura (energy field), but saw also what William calls the “inner blueprint of perfection” organized by Him who created each of us as an individual, each of us unique but based on universal principles, which she honored in her laboring to discover how she could use her eyes and hands to restore us to that wonderful pattern.  Life is a journey, and rolfing® makes it a better one.
