I tried the Rossiter last evening and I could immediately feel the pressure released from my shoulders. I am not going to lie, it was painful. But you get as much out of it as you put into it. He continues to apply pressure until you can't take any more and you tell him to stop, then while he is applying the pressure, you move different parts of your body which causes those muscles to tighten even more. Let me tell you, it was like a weight taken off of me. My shoulders feel so much more loose than ever before. I still have a headache, but it is not as severe. The pressure is completely gone from my shoulders, but not in my neck. I am considering going back to the chiro to address the neck. I may go do the Rossiter again, just to stretch those muscles even more so.
So if you have a lot of tension in your shoulders, I recommend Rossiter. Rossiter helps with all sorts of areas of the body, to include your lower and upper back as well as your knees.
I am sure Rossiter is not for everyone, but it might be worth looking into for some people.

Is this technique Rolfing?

I think it is similar to Rolfing. It's at least the same concept. Have you tried Rolfing?

The technique actually sounds more like some type of active release therapy more than Rolfing. Usually anyone trained in rolfing requires at least a 10 session commitment because it's a very slow attempt to re-align the body.

I wish I had the funds to get good bodywork - like regular myofacial therapy, etc. I don't even have any health insurance anymore to get PT. Although I wouldn't try rolfing at this stage of the game, especially after the fusion, but I really think if we all had more regular massage work we'd feel a lot better and movement would be alot easier. But rarely is massage paid for by insurances, although some W.C. does. I know some PT's who have training in active release therapy. My PT has done it on some small muscle sometimes that's very deep and I would never have known it was there and then once he released it I was amazed.
