"Since the 1970s I have not only included bodywork in my psychotherapeutic work, but also have had a lot of bodywork, and I mean a lot! What I have found most effective for restructuring and truly easing the body is Rolfing, also known as Structural Integration. We are fortunate to have Matthew Hartman, a master practitioner of this form of bodywork, now living in Ashland. My wife Diane and I go to Matthew most weeks, and are consistently happy with the results. Of all the Rolfers I've worked with, Matthew is right at the very top. If you're looking for something deeper and much more effective than massage, I highly recommend that you give Matthew a try."
