Working through my weekly series with Dorothy was both physically rewarding and educational. Each session built upon the previous one creating a foundation for my muscle movement in my daily life. This process improved how I walk, sit at my office and even my golf game in addition to teaching me how my muscles are meant to work.John Murphy, President/CEO Zuri Group

Dorothy has been an amazing resource for me as I’ve endured some significant physical challenges related to pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum. She has been both healer and educator/facilitator to help me heal myself. In addition to manual therapies, and assessment and retraining of many of my movement patterns, Dorothy also helped me to recognize and interrupt the psychological patterns of pain. Where chiropractic, massage, acupuncture and PT failed to provide me any lasting relief or healing (on top of the MRI, ultrasound, surgical consults and multiple urgent care visits) Dorothy’s approach has succeeded and helped me to thrive. She is now treating me through a third pregnancy, a time when many other practitioners go ‘hands off’, and we’ve been able to work together to maintain consistent structural health that has given me tremendous confidence and ease.Megan Sharp, Artist/Homemaker

After the first session, I felt a "lightness" in my upper body - like it could move more freely than it had before - this continued throughout the treatments and still is there. I also felt an improvement in my posture. During many of the sessions I felt "connections" in my body that I had never felt before.Joanne Mathews, Executive Communications

Since giving birth to my two daughters, I had been having hip issues and a lot of pain. My right hip was pressing on the sciatic nerve which made it painful to walk or do anything. I had tried physical therapy without much success so decided to check out Rolfing. Dorothy helped me understand the way I was walking and sitting were part of the problem. She looked beyond the immediate issues to find the cause and worked on my body as a whole. She has given me exercises I can do at home to help stay properly aligned and I can always go visit her for a follow up. It has been three years and I have been able to stay pain free with my exercises and periodic visits. I am more in tune with my body and feel better because Dorothy has helped me feel and move better. Dianna Freitag, Personal Chef

As a competitive equestrian, I've struggled with back pain for years. Dorothy got right to the core of my tightness and pain, and helped me learn to carry my body in a whole new way. Riding is now a pain-free and fun experience again, thanks to Dorothy's magical work.Elicia Putnam, CEO, PrestoBox

I went to see Dorothy after several years of trying various other options (including extensive PT and also massage) as a last attempt at a non-surgical option. It was the best choice I have made! After only two sessions I had relief from pain I had been experiencing for almost a year and things continued to improve throughout the sessions I spent with Dorothy. I was amazed at the difference made by such a non-invasive treatment option.Kathy Smith, Instructor, COCC

Between the Rolfing sessions I could feel my body's intelligence relearn movements as simple as walking and I was surprised that I was able to do the movement of jogging for the first time in my life. Dorothy gives take-home skills that are gentle and helpful. Since finishing the series, I continue to do some of the guided gentle movements Dorothy taught me, and find them the key for resetting the freedom of movement when it seems like I've lost it. Throughout the sessions, one of my main areas of gratitude is that even though she is a movement expert and knows the full potential of movement, she never pushed me to go beyond what my body was learning at the moment. Instead, Dorothy was consistently affirming and guiding. If you are wondering what can ten sessions change in you after decades of the same habits, don't doubt that Rolfing will help you acquire new movement strategies that have lasting effects.Tanuja Goulet, Licensed Acupuncturist, Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine

It's interesting to see how the body is connected, and how old injuries or habits cause the body to compensate letting some muscle groups go dormant.Bruce Redden, Electrictian

Dorothy is a highly competent and very intuitive Rolfing practitioner. She listens with intent and gives knowledgeable feedback with compassion and professionalism. After my personal ten series, my body feels more connected and balanced with an overall awareness of my core strength. Understanding that I have had chronic foot pain, Dorothy paid specific attention to my feet in our sessions as well as sharing at home personalized exercises. Within the first few sessions it was clear that her work was effective. I was feeling an amazing sense of relief and I am happy to say I was able to walk for three miles pain-free! I highly recommend Dorothy to anyone interested in effective holistic treatments for pain as well those looking to maintain optimal well-being.Kelley O'Rourke Moore, Arbonne Consultant

A fantastic reset for your body! After being in and out of Physical Therapy for 2 years, working with Dorothy helped my body remember how it was supposed to move, align and support itself again. Each session built upon the previous session and the practice was amazing. I now have several tools and cues to use when needed. Dana W.
