I began seeing Lauren Gee for Rolfing at the end of the year 2011. We spent several months working on transitioning my body into a state where I would be ready for the full Rolfing 10 series. These several initial months working with Lauren were extremely helpful in reconnecting my body with my mind, and preparing me for the full effect of the 10 series.
Having just completed the ten series in August of 2012, I can say that the effects of the work that Lauren has completed on my body are still being realized. I have had scoliosis and kyphosis (curvature of the spine from front to rear) since the age of 10 when I was in a car accident that injured my back. After years of unsuccessful or incomplete chiropractic work and physical therapy, I can say positively that the structural integration of my body through the Rolfing 10 series provided by Lauren has been extremely rewarding and successful. The results speak for themselves, as I have been able to recover nearly an inch of height after my time with Lauren. This inch of height was there all along, but my body was unable to utilize it, as my body had been so misaligned and unable to self correct before working with Lauren. Lauren has helped with the alignment, and with my ability to recognize misalignment and poor posture. My body has been able to self correct itself much better from my work with Lauren.
The tracking and active movement work that Lauren performed has helped my everyday posture and ability to move the way I want to, and be able to mountain bike, hike, etc, much more easily than before working with Lauren, and with much better technique. The overall connectedness, proprioception and awareness of my body that have come from working with Lauren are truly astounding. Issues with my body from old injuries (like a severe sprain of my left ankle, and recurring dislocation and slipping of my right shoulder) have grown smaller than I had ever thought possible before working with Lauren. I plan to continue to see her for regular maintenance and hope to continue seeing wonderful improvements in my ability to live life in full movement with her help and the lasting effects of the 10 series.
