I just read through the information on their European website about becoming certified. It seems to be costly and serious stuff. I've been reading a lot from Tom Myer's Anatomy Trains book and I'd…Continue

""Write down the names/date of last visit/frequency of massage. Give it a month or so! Then mail out a simple generic card stating that you are offering a discount for the month of May or June" Great idea! :)"

Very Sore Triceps Muscles

Recently I've been working a self-massage routine every morning to help resolve a carpal tunnel syndrome problem that I've been having for awhile. It's inspired by what I've been reading about myofascial release and it's been relieving a lot of compression, especially in the pectoralis major and minor muscles, resetting a chronic internal rotation of the shoulders that has went along with a forward-inclined head... I work out from the sternum and over into the arm, down across the scalenes, and…See More

Worth It To Become A Rolfer?

I've been reading a lot from Tom Myer's Anatomy Trains book and I'd definitely like to get involved in learning how to practice like this, but I'm wondering if it'd be necessary to go through their format to know essentially how to work with these concepts. Is there anyone here who has become involved with this or anyone who generally applies the same principles and…See More
