Allen, Rey - Certified Advanced Rolfer ®
Rey Allen, Certified Advanced Rolfer ®


Not to be confused with 'deep-tissue massage', ROLFING is the most effective way of getting to the source of a postural or structural problem.

ROLFING is a hands-on approach to correcting posture. Through subtle reshaping of the soft tissue, ROLFING returns the body to its proper alignment.

There is a growing amount of mainstream scientific research documenting the effectiveness of Rolf therapy. A 1988 study published in the Journal of the American Physical Therapy Association indicated that Rolfing greatly influenced the parasympathetic nervous system, which can help speed the recovery of damaged tissue. Other studies done in the 1980s concerned the effectiveness of Rolfing in treating figure skaters, self confidence and children with cerebral palsy. In 1992 a presentation was made to the National Center of Medical Rehabilitation Research regarding Rolfing in the treatment of degenerative joint disease. A 1997 article in The Journal of Orthopedic and Sports Physical Therapy reported that Rolfing can provide effective and sustained pain relief from lower back problems. The Department of Movement Behavior at UCLA in conjunction with the California Department of Mental Hygiene has shown with Rolfing creates a more efficient use of muscles, allows the body to conserve energy, and creates economical and refined patterns of movement.

Basically, ROLFING provides real and lasting relief for chronic or recent aches and pains, including:

~ Poor posture

~ Muscle tension

~ Injuries


~ Neck pain & Headaches

~ Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

~ Carpal Tunnel

~ Helps with poor digestion (Visceral Manipulation)

~ Low back pain

~ Tight hips

~ Foot pain from breaks, high or low arches

I teach the Alexander Technique, a body-mind method of learning to release excess tension in order to regain natural movement, restore health, recover from trauma, or explore the energetic connection between body, mind, and spirit. Using gentle touch and verbal guidance, in an hour-long private lesson, we let go of unconscious habit and reconnect to our authentic selves. I specialize in applying the AT to childbirth and the performing arts, but people from all walks of life can benefit from Alexander lessons. Semi-private lessons and group classes also available.

The Alexander Technique is a simple, practical method for re-directing tension
into useful energy. Private lessons provide an opportunity to observe how
habitual movement patterns can interfere with our daily lives and create dis-
comfort. The principles of Mr. Alexander's discoveries are applied to a wide
range of activities, from highly specialized performance skills to the everyday
tasks of sitting, standing and walking. Our movements are guided into unhabitual
territory by promoting awareness through the use of gentle hands-on work. We
learn to unleash more of our inherent balance, vitality and grace.

The Alexander Technique was developed over a hundred years ago and is an educational process taught in most major theater dance and music programs in the world. While remaining an essential part of the Performing Arts, it's application is very valid in the sports arena, as well as computer use and public speaking.

By learning how to recognize and change faulty postural habits, which are often the cause of carpal tunnel, tendonitis, back, neck and knee issues, the Technique is a long term approach to many chronic problems.

Spiritual Eldering: is the process of becoming an elder, of reviewing ones life, of comng to terms with mortality, of effecting intergenerational healing, of transmitting one's wisdom learned through life experience, of creating one's legacy and of being a mentor to others.

Spiritual Eldering is a new paradigm of the life cycle developed by Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and described in his book, "From Aging to Sag-ing.

Spiritual Eldering is intergenerational and for people of all faiths and beliefs.
