Rolfing Testimonials

Here are some of the testimonials my clients have been willing to share...

Throughout my journey to discover what was causing my ailments and my return to health, I saw many medical practitioners including some of "Western Medicine's" best with little success, except for the typical "take this pill and call me in the morning". It was a long and argues journey at the end of which I found Erin. Not only was Erin able to help with simple things like the range of motion of my neck or shoulders, but also much deeper things including nearly eliminating my dependency on my inhaler for my Asthma, helping me achieve mental clarity and calming my nervous system, to all of which typical practitioners had no answer or solution. I have been to many Rolfers over the years and I can honestly say that I have yet to have met a single one that had as much of a positive impact on me as Erin did. Some other Rolfers have done amazing work, but none have done as much in combination for my overall health as Erin. Every Rolfer I saw after Erin said "I can tell that you have had good work done", even those who are considered to be among the best Rolfers. I would recommend Erin to anyone who is even looking into Rolfing. Her intuitive nature and depth of knowledge allow for her to be a very effective practitioner and a perfect Rolfer for those just beginning their Rolfing experience or those that are experienced Rolfing veterans.

Erin Herdina relieved my chronic hip and back pain. Before I found Erin, I had tried physical therapy, massage, acupuncture, and osteopathy. I wish I had gone to Erin first! While the other methods provided temporary relief, Erin cured me. With her Rolfing combined with appropriate strengthening activities, I am once again pain-free.

Erin is a consummate professional and a delightful human being.

- Mary, age 60, Psychologist

Erin is a highly skilled and very intuitive Rolfing practitioner. I was reminded of the mind-body connection in my first Rolfing session when I experienced an unexpected emotional release as she was working on the back of my neck. After a series of sessions, I am feeling more balanced with quick recovery. I can slip on icy sidewalks without wrenching my lower back -- an old problem. I also regained 1/2 inch of height and am at my 20s-something height again.

- Karen, age 56, Classical Homeopath

Erin Herdina started Rolfing me shortly after a serious car accident where I was left with 2 broken legs, sprained ankle, crushed heel, cracked pelvis and sprained shoulder. 3 1/2 years after the accident, I walk without a limp, and my body feels aligned. She was very careful when I was in and out of surgery and in casts not to disturb the work of the orthopedic surgeon, but kept working on the rest of my body. Prior to going to Erin, I was a patient of chiropractic. I still have a lot of respect for that profession, but I've not had nearly the back aches nor neck strain that I had to have treated regularly prior to Rolfing. I recommend it and already have done so to my friends. I just completed #9 of the 10 session treatment, and as a 69 year old woman, look forward to many more years of pain free or nearly pain free activity while continuing the Rolfing treatments as needed.

"I have had sessions with at least six different Rolfers over the last ten years. Erin Herdina is definitely one of the best Rolfers to work on me. Her work on the repetitive stress issues in my arms has brought me great relief. Also, I had an ugly large fatty lump at the top of my back that has now disappeared. She is my 'First Call for Help' whenever I have structural and muscular problems. She always knows what to do to get me back on my feet again."

- Audrey, age 62, Analyst

Rolfing has opened up my chest cavity, allowing me to breath deeper which in turn has increased my stamina. Since Rolfing, my lower back has stopped aching, and my posture is straighter and my movement more graceful. I have a significant increase in flexibility in my arms and legs. Rolfing allowed my body to relearn healthy movement patterns.

- Elizabeth, age 23, Student

This summer marks my 40th year as a Dental Hygienist. I know I would not be working now if it wasn't for my "tune-ups" with Erin. Erin's "magic hands" have kept my body aligned and strong.

I love to tell people that because of Rolfing that- at my age- instead of shrinking, I have gained 1/4 of an inch in height.

- Ann, age 59, Dental Hygienist

I am a male and my family had commented to me about my posture. Since I can't see myself, I thought I was standing perfectly straight so I didn't believe them. I have to be honest that after receiving treatment from Erin I still felt the same but my family can tell the difference. I am now walking straight. I am glad my family said something because after the Rolfing experience I became more aware of how others walked. I am grateful that I will be able to stand straight and walk with ease as I grow older.

- Stan, age 63, Computer Engineer

I see Erin 'as needed' and it has been the source of a much better way of life for me. It straightens my body, enabling me to walk better, have better balance, and a general feeling of well being.

- Ruth, age 88, Retired
