About this Business

To understand Rolfing, it’s helpful to examine Ida P. Rolf’s founding philosophy on the subject: “As in all matter organized into biological units, there is a pattern, an order in human bodies. Rolfers make a life study of relating bodies and their fields to the earth and its gravity.” While certified Rolfer Michael Valenti holds this notion dear, his bodywork approach is more direct. By manually lengthening the connective tissue through kneading techniques, Michael hopes to ease his clients’ chronic tension, improve range of motion, and make them all tall enough to reach the cookie jar.

Michael is experienced and intuitive, knowing exactly where to work and at what depth. He is keen with his healing art. I will definitely go back to him again and refer him to others.

Highly recommend going to Michael. He took his time answering my millions of questions, explained what he was doing, and how it would impact the whole body. He is excellent at noticing the little things and bringing them to my attention so that I could correct a few bad habits (how I walk, stand, and move) which has improved my posture, gait, and chronic pain. Highly recommend.
