Larry Dossey, M.D., and best selling author:

“There is one major reason to take Rolfing SI seriously: it works. Not only can it dramatically change people’s bodies, it can transform their lives as well. Rolfing SI is powerful stuff.”

Mimi, four years old:

“When asked what Rolfing SI feels like… Mimi told her mother, ‘It feels like metal turning to cotton. Rolfing SI is my favorite thing to do.’”

Suzanne A.:

“I resisted Rolfing SI because I thought it would be very painful. After the first session, I left almost bouncing and walked happily for blocks. Today I had my tenth session. I still have an occasional pain when I lift something, but it’s coming along; it’s changing. I don’t know how many sessions I’ll have before I’m finished, but I don’t want it to end. Every time is such an awakening. I am also beginning to let go of the fear that I had been holding onto so dearly and facing my emotional problems. It’s a wonderful experience.”

John Rembao, University of Texas coach for Olympian Erin Aldrich:

“What is great about Rolfing SI is that it integrates the entire body, not just the specific area that’s injured. Rolfers understand body movement and the intricate interconnections of muscle, bone, and tendons. Any injury at all affects the body as a whole. By making sure the body is functioning properly, one can increase performance.”

Jim Montgomery, M.D., and orthopedic surgeon:

“People that have had chronic problems that have not been helped by anything else. All those people can be helped with Rolfing SI.”

Mary Elizabeth Nordstrom, President, Moore Vocal Arts:

“I am 73 years old and have advanced scoliosis which the Rolfing SI treatments have definitely begun to help.”

Elvis Stojko, Olympic Silver Medalist, Figure Skating:

“Rolfing SI helped me to find my center of balance for competition; it puts my body in place.”

Comments from Deborah’s Clients:

Chris Janke:

“Living life puts one discomfort on top of another. Rolfing SI resets the cycle.”

Tim T., RN, ANP:

“Working with Deborah over 10 sessions has been a wonderful process of discovery for me. She has an exquisite sensitivity to areas of tension or anxiety and employs a wide range of techniques to encourage or coax the client to open up to these areas, encounter them, and, hopefully, to embrace them. She is careful to only go as far or as fast as I can allow her. As with all learning, the more commitment to exploration and change the client brings to the work, the greater the rewards. I found our work together extremely rewarding and satisfying.”

Candy Soles:

“I feel more balanced physically and emotionally, a balance I’ve never felt before. My Rolfing SI experience has been very positive. I experienced relief from chronic neck pain after my first session with Deborah, and I continue to benefit after each session! The most notable change is the fluidity in which my body moves – I feel well organized and integrated. I’ve noticed a more balanced appearance in my body. I couldn’t be more pleased.”


“I felt wonderful and for the first time I slept without grinding my teeth. My jaw feels great and my ear pain is gone as well.”

Jean Libby:

“If anyone said I could have three wishes, instead of praying for humanity, I’d wish for every adult to go through this Rolfing SI process.”

Sister MT:

“Thank you for helping me. I feel new – all over, in and out.”

Jim Rossi:

“I searched online and found a Rolfer. I continued to search online in an attempt to understand what Structural Integration was. However, I was never able to understand it until after receiving several sessions, and it became very clear to me. My practitioner explained that she was willing to take me to whatever level I was willing to go. I felt reassured and was willing to allow myself to become vulnerable to change. She explained that the structural integration process typically required at least 10 sessions. It was quite a significant financial obligation to make. However, she further explained that my body may require 50+ sessions based on her experience. That response rang true for me and was honest.
The second session focused on my lower legs and feet. The experience was intense. My feet are flat, and I often felt pain while I would walk. Deborah was able to alleviate approximately 85% of the pain that I was feeling. I was shocked and grateful.
I would highly suggest Rolfing SI as a source bodywork for a majority of our society. Deborah’s intuitive and caring approach to Rolfing SI allowed me to feel safe and release holding patterns throughout my body. I hope that by sharing my experience that others may also benefit.”
