One of the most satisfying experience in my Rolfing practice is when a client who came in pain leaves my treatment room with a smile on her face. It was even more special last week after I gave a session to Bess, who has a rare neurological disorder called Angelman Syndrome.
Angelman syndrome symptoms include developmental delays, intellectual disability, no speech or minimal speech, difficulty walking, moving or balancing well. I received this message from Bess’s mother after the session:
‘I want to thank you for yesterday and for helping Bess to dissolve a level of pain she’d been suffering. Such a difference to the day before and the morning. She has been smiling and singing and slept very soundly last night!’
