Rolfing

Posted by Terrie on October 22, 1998 at 16:20:42:

Dear Walt,

I just called the Chiropractor/message therapist that I saw after I fractured the three vertebre in my back about six months ago to get a referral to a rolfer.

She was insistant that rolfing was invasive and painful and that I shouldn't do it. However I called the 800 # that you have given out and they refered me to a lady in LA.

I'm going to do the rolfing but I have to admit that the Chiro scared me a little. Is it really as bad as she says?

Hi, Terrrie!

Do a search of this webpage for "Rolfing" I have been writing about my experiences with rolfing for each appointment I've had - I will write about my 5th hour pretty soon - I think it's GREAT!!! I have had great experiences - I am gaining a whole new perspective of my body and myself. Some people experience a lot of emotional breakthroughs, too I guess. I've felt a few things but nothing really groundbreaking. Everyone experiences it differently. My last appointment was quite impressive - like I said, I'll write about it soon...

Please read my posts, and get back to me if you have more questions. I'll be happy to help you learn more about it before you go for it!

Be well!

Trish,

scrollin' scrollin' scrollin'

Thank you! I'm actually excited about it. I talked to the lady that was refered to me and its 100.00 per visit for 10 visits. Yikes, thats a THOUSAND BUCKS!

My husband gripes when I get a manicure every two weeks! *laugh* I guess I'll keep this my little secret for now.

And boy am I glad that I picked a woman after reading your first post! How come you had to have surgery for a cat bite?

Thank you again, Trish for sharing that. I'll let you know when I start.

Op..sorry. It sounded like a mexican dance for a second. (How can something so awfull sound like so much fun???)

That is really wild! I used to rehab wild birds and I knew that cat saliva was fatal to them. But I had no idea that it was dangerous to us too.

Interesting!

Thank you again for giving me something to think about. BTW how tall were you when the rolfing started? It will be interesting to see if you grow (um, I mean literally) from this like Walt did.

Hurry up with hour number five! I can't wait! *grin*

Dear Terrie,

Your Chiropractor is DEFINITELY wrong. I would suggest that s/he take some time to learn about Rolfing. I would be very interested to hear what Doc Dave has to say about Rolfing.

Rolfing is not even a competition to Chiropractic so I am at a loss as to why this Chiropractor has said what was said.

Let us know your experiences. Walt

Hi--any more info. on cat saliva? What is the candida connection to the bone infection, etc.? Dogs have had candida in their secretions (can't remember the exact details), but I saw a microscopic photo on the Internet.
Can cats have candida? Seems like a communal environmental thing to me. Mary J.

Connection wasn't direct...

Hi, Mary!

Sorry if that was misleading... a bone infection will, as you might guess, need massive amounts of antibiotics to heal...at least that's what my doctors said/did. I was on IV rocephin for about 8 weeks. Pretty much did me in as far as my colon was concerned. The infectious disease guy said not to bother with acidophilus - he'd give me something if I had any problems...neat, huh? I had a whopper colon infection and that's where I trace the discovery of my problem.

The bacteria I was infected with (in my bone)was called pasturella (sp?). ALL cats and dogs have it in their saliva, and as long as it doesn't get into your bones, I guess it's not really a problem ;-). Most people have no problems keeping it out of their bones!

AS far as the candida itself goes, I understand there are many many types and they do occur pretty much all over a lot of stuff - so it's a matter of keeping it in check with our healthy bodies.

That's all I got on the subject....
be well!

Hi Walt,

I gathered that after reading Trish's experiences. Walt, it sounds wonderful! Are all certified Rolfers similar?

I got the courage up to talk to my husband about it yesterday after the Bronco game (*grin* He was in a REALLY good mood) He seemed open to the idea. We also discussed skilled relaxation and he seemed interested in trying it. I think we'll try getting some tapes.

Anyway, I'm really looking forward to doing the Rolfing. It's going to be tough though because there are only two that were refered to me in this area and both are really far away.

I'll keep you posted,
Terrie

I'm not sure what it is. But I know that every single bird that came to me with cat bites died. The vet I got advice from at the time said that there is something in the saliva of cats that is toxic to birds. Not being a vet I have no idea what it is - and I didn't ask.

Hi, Terie.

Just like all physicians, all Rolfers are different. Certified just means that they all had the same basic training and are competent to do it.

There are many variations of Rolfing, all of which work, that seem to be tied to the basic personality of the Rolfer him/herself.

Since you are going to have to go a distance in any event, I would first call both of them & get a feeling over the phone about which one to go to. I know that when I did mine, I had to drive more than 90 minutes each way to do all 10 sessions. The next year, I was able to convince him to move to my town (sigh).

Let us know how you do.

Hi, Terrie,

I had a very active practice & he wanted to become associated with the group. That is why he moved. Unfortunately, by that time I had already completed my 10 sessions.
