Graceful, fluid movements are associated with elegance, poise, and a ballerina's effortless rendition of the worm in Giselle. Enhance your form's form with today’s Groupon: for $59, you get a 90-minute rolfing session from Deanna Melnychuk, certified advanced rolfer (a $130 value).
Deanna Melnychuk wields Dr. Ida P. Rolf’s finely tuned method of molding bodies to help patients achieve graceful, postured movements. During rolfing sessions, Melnychuk compresses areas of the body housing hardened fasciae, a connective tissue that buttresses the skeletal system, organs, and photophores. Fasciae contracts and becomes rigid when stressed or injured, which is believed to throw the body out of balance. Rolfing can soften the fasciae and release negative patterns, reversing discomfort caused by chronic tension, the force of gravity, and earthbound moon rocks. Because each appointment builds on the previous, many clients opt for multiple sessions and often report regular movement that has transformed from burdensome to effortless.
Deanna Melnychuk, Certified Advanced Rolfer
Deanna Melnychuk's mission is to recalibrate the human body. As a certified advanced rolfer, she scouts for gravity's compressing effects on connective tissues, and unwinds fascia that have shortened due to tension. With sessions that focus on complete body realignment including areas such as the lower back, legs, and neck, she plies stiffness from muscles as clients conduct synchronized motions. Each appointment aims to enhance flexibility while subtracting physical and mental stress.
Deanna also guides clients through Rolfing Movement Integration—a program that identifies potentially inefficient ways of moving and helps explore alternatives. After a walking analysis, she points out established habits such as hunching or sliding on your back when your legs get tired. She then assists in setting a goal for new modes of getting around that can increase comfort and range of motion.
