Does an Ethical Massage Therapist do something similar to Rolfing to address postural distortion as well as acute and chronic pain?
$140 each 90 minute session
Ethical Massage Therapists are trained in an"off shoot"of Ida Rolf's work (Rolfing),
called SET or (Structural Energetic Therapy) a similar form of STRUCTURAL INTEGRATION
....however, SET is a newer more modern cutting edge therapy that achieves more powerful permanent posture alignment and pain relief.
Structural Energetic Therapy (SET)
w/Cranio Structural Therapy or Cranio Sacral Therapy.
A series of 10-15 sessions adressing 11 different body sections specifically targeting and unwinding muscular fascia in areas with the most need,(similar to Rolfing Sessions in depth of pressure, but includes more cutting edge techniques like Cranio Sacral Therapy and/or Cranio Structural Therapy).
SET..... helps to Structurally Integrate and realign body posture and reduce acute and chronic pain on a more permanent level then basic deep tissue massage because of the SET technique.
I was diagnosed with Scoliosis at age eleven by age twenty-five, I found relief from my Scoliosis pain with...
Structural Energetic Therapy techniques and also received my training. I was in the first video series as part of the development of the training for other future therapists who would be trained in the SET technique.
More than one SET treatment can be given in a week. It is best not to wait any longer than two weeks apart in duration because the body tries to revert back to the old distortion patterns making it more difficult for the new postural balance to be maintained.
It takes time for the body to heal itself in a natural way and SET is less evasive than other options like..... addictive prescription drug therapy and/or surgery. It is important for you to take sincere dedicated active role and to be patient as your healing process begins. The rest of the world will still be there after your sessions are over and you will be better able to deal with the world around you.

"Before receiving my Massage Treatment,
I had no energy and soreness all over my body.
After receiving a "Taster Treatment of the Access Bars" technique. I felt a lot more energy and all the soreness in my body went away. The pain just disappeared and my thinking is clearer. I have been an active client of Rosemary's since Feb. 25th, 1998."
Sammy F. of Lakeland, Florida
"I have been receiving massage treatments from Rosemary since, December 12th, 1992. In all of the years that I have been receiving massage from her, I have not found any other massage therapist as good as she. I have had massages all over the world, but no one massages as good as she does. Somehow, she knows just the exact amount of pressure to use on my body. I don't know how she knows that but she does. She should be making millions by now the those hands!"
Doris G. of Tampa, Florida
" Rosemary is an excellent Massage Therapist who reaches the right spots to assist in your healing. She also massages my wife! Rosemary's top qualities are Great Results, Expert, and High Integrity.
We have been receiving massages from Rosemary since 1998."

You will be well served to add her to your list of trusted health care advisers. Enjoy!"
