My name is Annie DiVello and Rolfing Changed My Life. It’s been three years since I started having regular sessions with Beth. I give her my highest recommendation and my most heartfelt gratitude. I can not imagine my life without Rolfing...
Three years ago, I was suffering from chronic lower back pain, neck stiffness, wrist pain, and sporadic hip/shoulder pain, and had been for over 10 years. I was in so much pain at times that it
was difficult to carryout home-based play therapy for my clients. Travel, especially long distances, via car or plane, was always miserable. Sleep at night was restless and uncomfortable. Despite
twice weekly visits to the chiropractor for eight months and a regular yoga practice, it was difficult to get through my days. I met Beth Berkeley at a yoga teacher training workshop and was
immediately intrigued by the concept of Rolfing. I loved Rolfing’s whole-body perspective. I loved the focus on balanced bodies. I loved the focus on human potentiality. I did not
love that Rolfing has a reputation for not being the most comfortable session imaginable. I contemplated going for over a year. I asked friends and colleagues if they had any experience with
Rolfing, only one even knew what the term meant. My pain continued and my determination to find relief grew stronger. I finally mustered my courage and called Beth to schedule an
appointment. It was unlike anything I had ever experienced. In broad terms, Rolfing realigns the ligaments, tendons, and soft tissue to bring the body back into ideal alignment. It’s not
always a pleasant experience in the moment of realignment but the benefits are tremendous. Within months, I was six inches deeper in my forward bends (in yoga). I was able to drive without a
stabbing pain in my lower back, even for 12-13 hour trips! Most importantly, as a Pediatric Speech-Language pathologist, I was able to sit for hours on end on the floor with the kiddos on my caseload
and play. For the first time in my career, I was able to be entirely present for them because I wasn’t in debilitating pain. The results were indescribable. I am not going to tell you
that it was easy or pain free. What I will tell you is that proceeding with regular sessions, diligently carrying out all of my homework from Beth, and allowing myself to change the way
that I sit, stand and walk, have transformed my life. Now, when I feel pain in my body, it’s unfamiliar instead of the norm.
