Here's what some of Roberto's clients are saying.....
Roberto's work is fabulous. After going through the structural integration process my body posture improved dramatically. It is so refreshing to have 'good posture' feel more natural than poor posture. DeAnn Henderson L.M.T.
I would like to say that going to Roberto helped me recover from a sciatic nerve pinch that was making my left leg and toes numb. My back has never felt stronger, I thank Roberto for all that he has done to get my life back on track. Tom Stephenson
I benefited greatly from the 10 Structural Integration (SI) sessions that Roberto took me through. Prior to going through the sessions, I was experiencing a lot of back and neck pain and was constantly tired and lethargic. At the end of each session, I noticed immediate improvements in the areas that the session focused on. After completing all 10 sessions, I experienced significant improvement in my overall flexibility, strength, balance, posture, and range of motion. In addition, my energy and stamina had significantly increased. Almost a year since I completed the 10 sessions, I am still reaping the benefits of the SI work I received from Roberto. Corey Bleich, Computer Engineer
I have been seeing Roberto for low back problems and stress for over a year now. I have been receiving regular Thai massage treatments. This is in conjunction with practicing Tai chi and Qi gong weekly. I am extremely pleased with the care and results of the therapeutic bodywork I have received from Roberto. My flexibility, and over all health, I feel are greatly improved due to his vast knowledge and skill. If you haven't tried a Thai massage, I highly recommend trying one. It is comparable to an hour of intense yoga practice with help stretching and lengthening of your spine. I am taller and straighter with less slouching. I also have improved my breathing and I am sleeping better at night. These treatments and the Tai chi and Qi gong practice have changed my life. Sue 2009
As a migraine sufferer I started going to Roberto for bi-weekly chair massages. These were very beneficial, since I sew on a sewing machine all day. But after telling Roberto one day about my caffine intake, he suggested I consume more electrolytes to help counteract the dehydrating effects of caffine on my muscles. This advice helped me immensely. Roberto also suggested that my muscles would benefit from less acidic foods, so I have increased more alkaline foods into my diet. Because of Roberto my migraine headaches, which were occuring about once or twice a month, have now decreased to about five a year! Thank you Roberto for all your help. Kathy Stephenson
In fall 2002 I visited a chiropractor for the first time with lower back pain. Upon x-ray, it was determined that I had scoliosis, exacerbated by my corporate IT position that had me slouching at a computer terminal daily for hours. While periodic chiropractic adjustments helped with immediate relief, it didn't address the root cause of my pain -- poor posture and lack of muscular support for the spinal curvature I had been developing perhaps for years.
Roberto provided me not only with 10 Rolf sessions of Structural Integration, but also coupled the treatments with customized guidance on life style modifications including regular exercise, nutrition and body awareness. Another great benefit of specific soft tissue work on my arms was that Roberto eliminated painful flare ups from repetitive typing stress and I avoided carpal tunnel surgery unlike many of my colleagues at work who opted for the operations.
The other day at yoga I heard myself telling a woman complaining of her inability to do a forward fold because of her back, "I used to have scoliosis before I went through 10 Rolf method sessions and got committed to coming to yoga 3-4 times a week." Astonished, she said that she and her daughter had scoliosis as well and were told it was a permanent condition. I'm here to tell you that it is not necessarily permanent and your physical limitations can be changed if you are willing to do the work. Structural integration, regular exercise and postural awareness are not always easy. It's a daily, weekly, monthly, lifetime practice. I will definitely tell you that I have personally witnessed referrals to Roberto who had much more serious cases of scoliosis than mine (one in her 60s whose doctors were 100% she needed surgery to correct it) see amazing change and postural correction without surgery. If we can figure out a way to do it, I would love to post before/after x-rays to prove that. J.L.
After having been in an auto accident and suffering from chronic pain as well as experiencing repetitive use injuries I greatly benefited from the ten Structural Integration (SI) sessions. Being a bodyworker myself, I know the importance of having a balanced body structure. I'm grateful for Roberto's professionalism and experience to achieve the results I now enjoy. Ahhhh, pain free and balanced!! Linda Graham L.M.T.
I knew I would receive Structural Integration (SI) someday, having seen a 35-40 yr old acquaintance take a running jump with a few steps up in the air in 1996. Should have done it then; the fee was $300. I did it in 2003 at the age of 72. My physical benefits are many. In my case, the most identifiable one is bringing under control, with the help of FootWorks, my foot-hips-back-neck chronic issue that was not resolved by $K's in adjustments and previous orthotics over the past 18 years. My lungs are expanded. My lower abdomen is in. I enjoy awareness of my body. My body works as a unit. Aches and pains after working in the yard are reduced to one after a certain motion. There were other body benefits, now receded in my memory as they are taken for granted. During the first session, my therapist noted that there will be gains in sensory perception. Currently my gains are in taste, color, and generally deeper perception of things new to me. After seeing the recent El Greco to Picasso exhibit at the Phoenix Art Museum, I stopped at the gift shop to buy reproductions of four pieces. After locating and examining these, I returned them to the display table with deep disappointment ... the colors just were not the same as in the originals. I was astonished by my new sensitivity to color. The perception benefits may not be exclusively the result of SI. A year ago I had an experience that underscored the spiritual aspect of my existence (not in a traditional religious context). During therapy, conversations with the therapist lead me to buy into my wife's interest in the Fat Flush detox routine. My sensory perception benefits became noticeable during the later stages of SI and firmed up after SI and beginning of the Fat Flush. I believe that SI was a major enabler/catalyst. S. 2 June 03.
