Not only did my neck feel 80% better by the time I left but my left knee (a trick knee for me) felt more solid and stable than it had in months. By the next day everything was at 100%. I felt like a well oiled machine.
I'm a certified medical massage therapist. I only say that to give you an idea of the quality of work I look for in other body workers, when getting work for myself. I woke up one morning with a crick in my neck. I couldn't turn my head very far to the right. I tried hitting a few trigger points and working on it the best I could myself, to no avail. I was lucky enough to have had an appointment with Jason scheduled that day. He worked briefly on my neck, but it was still having trouble. Then he started working on my left diaphragm. To my amazement, the more he worked the more I could turn my head to the right. I would have NEVER thought my diaphragm was connected so profoundly to my neck. Then he started working on my left IT band. Not only did my neck feel 80% better by the time I left but my left knee (a trick knee for me) felt more solid and stable than it had in months. By the next day everything was at 100%. I felt like a well oiled machine. Thanks so much Jason!
Jason was able to reset my muscles and help the healing process. His focus is clearly upon the patient and not the customer!
Complications from a C-section had me in severe pain. Jason was able to reset my muscles and help the healing process. His focus is clearly upon the patient and not the customer!
Every session with Jason brought visible improvement and a sense of well-being for me.
I had a Rolfing treatment series about 10 years ago which I thought was very beneficial for me. Since that series I've relocated to North Carolina, failed to maintain supporting Rolfing sessions, and I had an accident which exacerbated my old physical problems as well as added new ones. I feel very fortunate to have found Jason to help me with my scoliosis and an old knee injury as well as the gait, posture and pain related to accidental amputation 2 years ago of 4 toes on my right foot. At the time I started the initial treatment series of 10 visits with Jason I felt like the muscles in my right leg were atrophying, actually withering, my balance was obviously off, I limped and favored my right leg, and I felt "twisted" at my hips. Every session with Jason brought visible improvement and a sense of well-being for me. I understand the theory of Rolfing but I'm probably not good at explaining how it actually works from a conventional medical point of view. . .but I know that it's important for me to have maintenance Rolfing sessions to keep my body in it's optimal alignment. Jason is a very competent, compassionate professional and I recommend him to everyone I know.
During the course of the 10 sessions with Jason, the issue just disappeared and has not come back
Even though I am fit and healthy, I had a nagging SI joint problem that just wouldn't stay away. Chiropractic only brought temporary relief.
During the course of the 10 sessions with Jason, the issue just disappeared and has not come back. That was last year.
I go to Jason for a monthly tune-up. I hold his professionalism and knowledge in very high esteem.
I have experienced relief from GI issues, improved flexibility, an increase in motion, improvement with my jaw and neck, and just a greater response in general of my muscles to this specific and unique bodywork
Rolfing has helped to relieve muscle tension my body, especially the underlying areas that contribute to many core musculoskeletal issues that mostp eople would not think about even touching, such as the abdominals, rib cage, and feet. I never knew there was another manipulation therapy out there that could reach so many areas of the body and bring relief of various symptoms. I have been to many different practitioners of various therapies over the years for pain and I have seen great benefit from soft tissue and muscle work through my experience working with Jason. I have experienced relief from GI issues, improved flexibility, an increase in motion, improvement with my jaw and neck, and just a greater response in general of my muscles to this specific and unique bodywork. These small successes have been big to me, as they do not normally make a sustainable impact for someone who has had muscle tension and skeletal issues for many years as a result of compounding injuries, various stressors, and high-level activity from athletics.
I would recommend Jason to anyone, especially those who feel they have had a buildup of strain on their bodies for a variety of reasons, even for years. He works well with both those who have been in chronic pain situations as well as athletes or “past athletes” who want to get back to moving the way they once did. I am a mixture of both of these people and I feel Jason has and is still helping me achieve the goals I have. He listens well and is in tune to his clients’ needs. He is a practitioner who serves the client with a caring attitude and you can see that in the way he does his job. He is thorough, highly skilled, and knowledgeable about how various muscle groups work together. What is unique about Rolfing and especially Jason’s skill set is that I believe it is beneficial for anyone. People who want to be able to move better or reduce their pain should give it a try, even if the concept of Rolfing is new to them. I know others will be pleasantly surprised that it is not just one more therapy, but it has satisfying results for helping to retrain their bodies to do so many things that contribute to their overall effectiveness in the day-to-day. The little things count, in helping the body breath better, walk easier, hold your head up straighter. It’s never too late.
The environment that Jason creates for his clients is one of open possibility, acceptance, safety, and depth. He embodies his work, and is truly a healer.
Ever since I did the series with Jason the pain in my hips and knees has subsided. For the first time, I felt what it was like to have long legs, to walk from psoas--ease! I am much more acutely aware of my body and mind. I also seem to be able to better describe sensations, feelings, and to express myself more effectively.
The environment that Jason creates for his clients is one of open possibility, acceptance, safety, and depth. He embodies his work, and is truly a healer. The combination of his intuitive touch with impeccable skill facilitate healing that goes beyond the physical body with effects that last and can be felt long after.
Rolfing is the only technique that I have found where one session can change the characteristics of muscle tissue. After a session, my body feels as though it's functioning the way it was meant to function
I have had a fantastic experience with Jason. I am a professional athlete, so I have to be able to use my body at a very high level every day. I enjoy massages and they are good in their own right but rolfing is the only technique that I have found where one session can change the characteristics of muscle tissue. After a session, my body feels as though it's functioning the way it was meant to function. Jason has helped my legs gain flexibility and injury resistance. He's also shortened my recovery time tremendously.
Better Results Than Any Other Treatment
My husband and I experienced a miscarriage about five months ago and after the D & C procedure my reproductive cycle was not regulating itself. Not only was I experiencing major discomfort due to my hormones being out of order, but I also had digestive issues. I had gone to the gynecologist, but he just told me to wait it out and "relax." I was trying my best to follow doctor's orders, but I felt like something needed to be done to give my system a helpful boost. Then my husband suggested that I see Jason. I thought it couldn't hurt, so I went in for a session. It turned out that Jason was an answer to our prayers. The very next day my cycle started. Honestly, I couldn't believe it. I had to email Jason that night (even though it was very late) to tell him the great news. Rolfing helped to relieve some sort of tension my body was carrying after the miscarriage. Now it's been about four days since the treatment and my digestive issues have disappeared. I think I'm going to bring some of Jason's Raleigh Rolfing business cards to my gynecologist's office :-)
I highly respect Jason and his work. I have had great success with his professional care
I have scoliosis and have been to the best doctors in the country. As a nurse, I know the medical field and was very disappointed when my main treatment options given to me were drugs. I am too young to go down that road! I highly respect Jason and his work. I have had great success with his professional care.
My physical therapists have been very pleased with how the work I have done with Jason compliments the work I am doing in therapy
I have cerebral palsy and have done physical therapy, chiropractic and massage in some combination most of my life. For the most part I am extremely active which has taken a toll on my body, especially my knees and my back. I initially started working with Jason as an alternative to chiropractic and have found that while it is more challenging I have seen more long term results. For example, my gait is more even. I am putting less of my weight on one side and reducing the stress on my knees and the strain in my lower back. My physical therapists have been very pleased with how the work I have done with Jason compliments the work I am doing in therapy. Hopefully by continuing to work with Jason even beyond the initial ten series I will continue to see even more benefits.
My body stays healthier longer, and I see significant progress towards what the chiropractors said could take years to change.
Before meeting Jason, I tried all of the traditional methods to ease the constant tension in my shoulders and back. I was visiting the chiropractor once a week, taking pain relievers all the time, and, when affordable, getting expensive massages.
All of these treatments, and no lasting results. Between stress, my office desk job, and the additional strain of being a dancer, I considered myself broken and unfixable. After beginning to work with Jason in June of 2007, I have seen a change.
My body stays healthier longer, and I see significant progress towards what the chiropractors said could take years to change. I greatly admire Jason's professionalism and the quality of his work. I would, and do, recommend him to everyone I know.
Jason has achieved what I thought was the impossible, a healing of my longtime pain and discomfort and a turning back of the clock
I have a history of back pain, back injuries, and, in the summer of 2008, a stress-related muscle tightening that severely limited my ability to move, sit, and function in life. I sought help from physical therapy, chiropractic treatments, and Rolfing. Initially, I received these treatments simultaneously, which helped me move to a more functional state of being. I began a 10 series with Jason and over the past year it has been an evolution for my body. It was important that I recover, but I also noticed, as the series progressed, that I wasn't just healing, I was improving in all aspects of my muscular functionality. Any recurrence of pain or discomfort was minor and shorter in duration. Jason has achieved what I thought was the impossible, a healing of my longtime pain and discomfort and a turning back of the clock, if you will, on my overall well-being.
