“Rolfing, Excruciatingly Helpful” In the New York Times, October 2010.
Piotr Redlinski for The New York Times
“Anna Zahn, 20, a former dancer, receives a Rolfing treatment.
But she still felt tight, her body tense. So she started getting Rolfed — a kind of deep-tissue bodywork that can be so intense that some jokingly liken it to masochism.”
“It’s not going to massage and lighting aromatherapy candles,” said Ms. Zahn, a 20-year-old student at New York University, who gets a Rolfing treatment every week or so. “It’s tough to go to these sessions. It’s painful, very painful, emotionally and physically. But you feel such a relief when you leave that it’s just the most amazing feeling.”
