Why I Became a Rolfer®

"I often feel I came into Rolfing to be a bridge, between

races and cultures, and to help establish a foundation

from which to move forward - for my clients and myself."

Marekah Stewart — DIRI Diversity and Anti-Racism Committee Member

Our community of Rolfers have come from all walks of life. Different skills, different journeys. However one thread connects them all. A desire to walk a new path and positively transform lives. Hear how they have shaped stronger wellness futures, for themselves and others.
