Before she could treat other women’s bodily ailments, Taylor had to learn to care for her own. She was training as a dancer and learning to deal with the impact of both physical pain and mental stress on her body. She noted that massage had a remarkable ability to encourage her body's natural chemicals to reduce stress, improve mood, and even ease pain. Inspired to provide hands-on care to other women, she enrolled at the San Francisco School of Massage and Bodywork, training in Swedish, deep-tissue, and trigger-point therapy. Her specialty, however, quickly became prenatal and postpartum massage. Today, she regularly works with expectant and new moms, and can even attend labor, delivery, and stork flyovers. She exclusively works with women in her standard massages as well, and takes pride in a sense of intuition that helps her customize each massage to each customer.
Since everyone experiences life through one medium—their bodies—professional Rolfer Jed Bentley uses his hands-on skills to ensure those bodies are in good working order. As a certified Rolfer, Jed has studied the ways in which all parts of the body are connected, and he knows how to correct ailments with manual adjustments of the fascia—the body's connective tissue. When fascia constricts, it causes bodily pain and poor posture. Once it has been adjusted during a Rolfing session, the body can stand taller and straighter without any additional effort and with less pain. Jed emphasizes that Rolfing addresses emotional troubles as well as physical ones—clients should be open to long-lasting emotional change as well as physical, usually within a few months. Clients who wish to better acquaint themselves with the Rolfing process can peruse the FAQ here.
