Rolfing®: One of the most meaningful experiences of my life

“One of the strangest and most meaningful experiences of my life occurred when I going through Rolfing® (ten brilliant sessions of deep-tissue bodywork) in my early 20s. The fifth session works on the stomach area, and I was anticipating (= dreading) the release of buried sadness. Instead, there was a dam burst of love, which poured out of me during the session and afterward. I realized it was love, not sadness, that I had bottled up in childhood—and what I now needed to give and express.”
