"After suffering horrible pain for over two years Jim Tuckers' Rolfing techniques gave me back my life. I was diagnosed with De Quervain's Disease, which is very similar to carpel tunnel only it affects the thumbs and tendons connecting to the forearms. As carpet tunnel, this is also a repetitive stress injury obtained by years of computer overuse, which I acquired after 15 years in the graphic arts profession, or according to doctors a bad workstation setup.
I had been through four different specialists with treatments ranging from cortisone shots, pain and nerve medications, and extensive (painful) physical therapy including full arm and hand immobilization splints. None of these treatments worked.
Desperately, I decided to try Rolfing. After the first visit I had immediate relief, I could actually grip the steering wheel to drive home. A few days later the pain returned but Mr. Tucker had told me to be patient. The more visits, the longer I went without pain.
Rolfing enabled me to work full time while commuting 2 hours a day, before Rolfing I could barely drive at all. I am so glad I took the chance and tried Rolfing and would recommend it to anyone suffering in pain. What have you got to lose?"
"After receiving years of chiropractic therapy for neck and back discomfort, I was introduced to Rolfing. I received one session a week for 10 weeks. I noticed change after the first treatment, and by the end of the 10-week session, the results were remarkable. I no longer had pain or stiffness and my posture had greatly improved. It is truly one of the best things I've ever done for myself. Thank you, Jim!"
