KRISTEN ORGERA ROLFING
For nearly two decades, I have been a proud resident of Durham as my career has taken a winding path that most recently found me in higher education administration at Duke University. During this journey, I also struggled through periods of chronic pain from several injuries and surgeries, and at one point wondered whether the status quo was something I needed to accept as simply a part of life. Having explored all the traditional remedies, I heard about Rolfing and decided to give it a chance. For me, as for many who exhaust other alternatives, this became a life changing decision. Pain - whether from trauma or simply an accumulation of bad habits endemic to modern life - does not have to be something we simply accept. We CAN reshape our patterns, learn to move differently and thereby elevate the way we live. So taken was I by this realization, and by witnessing the impact it had on my own life, that I decided to train to help others overcome pain, or just to feel better as they move through life. I now practice Rolfing full time out of my home.
