Breathe, Move, and Be with Ease
"This is the gospel of Rolfing: When the body gets working appropriately, the force of gravity can flow through.
Then, spontaneously, the body heals itself."
- Ida P. Rolf
Meet Katy Loeb
I first tried Rolfing® as a graduate student in Art History & Arts Administration. Installing art exhibitions and writing papers while crunched over a desk exacerbated painful habitual patterns. A few Rolfing® sessions got me out of pain and made me feel I didn’t have to battle with my body. I signed up for a Ten Series, and by the end I was able to move, sit, and stand without pain. After wearing podiatrist prescribed orthotics for 20+ years, I no longer needed them.
My self-discovery process just didn’t square with my desk job. When I asked myself what I was passionate about my experience with the Ten Series kept surfacing. In July 2019 I completed my training at the Dr. Ida Rolf Institute in Boulder, CO. I’ve returned to Chicago to open my practice to help guide my clients toward improved posture, freedom from pain, and ease of being.
Rolfing® Structural Integration has the ability to dramatically alter a person's posture and structure. If you think your body should feel better and move more easily then Rolfing® may be right for you.
Many people seek Rolfing® to resolve pain and discomfort from many different sources, including the persisting effects of repetitive motion, accidents, illness, surgery, trauma, and aging. Others come to improve their athletic performance in their sport, or because they want to feel better in their body and improve their quality of life. Rolfing® enhances posture, improves performance, and augments personal growth.
My aim is to bring balance, strength, efficiency, and ease to the body’s posture and movement patterns by improving joint alignment, increasing range of motion, evoking inner body awareness, and establishing body-wide coordination and continuity of movement. Rolfing® emphasizes holistic, whole body structural integration and functional efficiency, as much as specific symptom relief.
Clients who receive Rolfing® report a balanced, more comfortable, and flexible body; they also learn to understand the signals their body sends them, and through our work together we develop tailor-made skills to respond to discomfort that may show up in their everyday lives.
