“When a body is in pain or discomfort, whether physical or emotional, the unconscious response is to tighten and shorten in an effort to “get away” from the pain. Our work focuses on lengthening an balancing the body in order for the tightened tissue to have some place to go after the release.” - Ida Rolf

Suffering from a lower back injury since 2007, and fused vertebrae in my upper neck, I've tried a myriad of therapies- physical therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic with ART, medical massage, ect. These have worked for me, but only temporarily, as the symptoms always have resurfaced. Since starting on the 10 series with Elisabeth at Nordic Rolfing, I have made progress in ways I have not experienced before. I have had major pain reduction, and have re-gained fluidity, and feel great muscular freeness. Elisabeth has explained the purpose and goals of Rolfing therapy to me, and I am now much more aware of my body positions and postures throughout the day. Rolfing freed up my body to allow for proper body structure and movement, and in just 2 weeks I have strengthened my weak areas. She not only targets the affected area, but parts of my body that I didn't realize were compensating for the weakness in my back, and had become deformed and rigid over time. My energy has increased and I am actually freed up to move and exercise without pain. Eager to continue practicing with her. Great bed side presence and is very comfortable to work with.
I was privileged to be treated by Elisabeth and I am feeling so wonderful, my posture is better! She is such a conscientious practitioner - I highly recommend visiting Elisabeth at Nordic Rolfing.
Rolfing is my most favorite form of Bodywork. Throughout my 44 years, I have tried a variety of different bodywork. I have MS and I was delighted when I found out that Elisabeth was going to Rolfing school. While she was learning she practiced on me to my body's huge benefit, and I still see her once a week. Her touch is delightfully firm with a gentle approach to Rolfing that makes me feel very nurtured.
As you get older, your flexibility and ability to move around becomes restricted and you have more aches and pains. Elisabeth was able to help improve my range of motion, regain strength and stability, free up movement, and reduce pain to aid in sleep. She is knowledgeable, compassionate, and effective, and she has helped me appreciably.
Elisabeth is a sensitive and incredibly skilled Rolfer. She is highly perceptive and works with incredible compassion. I can't recommend Elisabeth enough.
