“I could not believe the changes.”

I first met Kim about twelve years ago. We were co-workers. I must admit my initial impression was, “She’s kinda out there – cosmic.” You see, I was very traditional. The closest thing I had experienced to alternate forms of treatment was chiropractic performed after a water skiing injury.

My next back injury occurred at age 26. I, of course, chose to be treated conservatively with physical therapy, which did help. Then, about three years later, the simple task of changing bed sheets led me down the path of anti-inflammatones, days off work, MRIs, and physical therapy. After two months of therapy for herniated, degenerative lumber discs, I felt pretty good. (Good except for the nagging burning in my low back & leg which I thought I would just have to live with. Not so!)

After a few months of convincing, I finally decided to give Rolfing® a try. What did I have to lose? I knew that there were no guarantees. I also knew I had the option to stop at certain steps along the way. But most importantly for me was that by this time, I knew Kim. She was a kind, compassionate, talented healer. I felt that she believed she could help me.

After my ten sessions were completed, I could not believe the changes. To begin with, I no longer experienced the burning in my lower body. Good posture was no longer an effort. I often describe the sensation as feeling like my upper body was stacked correctly on my legs. Movements were no longer strained. Lastly, I got to know Kim. Not only does she have a remarkable skill, she’s also an amazing, spiritual, intuitive, selfless professional. In the years since, I took Kim as a resource, confidant, and friend. However, I’m still not an easy nut to crack. Recently, after a ten year hiatus, I decided to return to rolfing for a tune up – or an over haul as the case may be. My body had slid into a series of episodes of low back, leg, neck, knee, and shoulder pain with a side dish of migraines. So, why did I wait so long? Stubborn, I suppose. Self conscious about my body, probably stupid to not think Rolfing when I first began having problems again, absolutely.

Since my three series this past April, I have had three tension headaches, one episode of knee pain after straining, and no back, leg, neck, or shoulder pain. I feel I owe this reprieve to Kim. She has continued to advance her skills through seminars, work shops, teaching, mentoring, and hands on experience. And yes, I’ve learned my lesson. I have scheduled a follow up series for the fall. I have finally realized that Rolfing® can be used as a preventative method of pain relief. Imagine that! But seriously, if it hadn’t been for Kim’s patience, support, and understanding over the years, I would not be at this point. I thank her for changing the quality of my life.
