"At 39, after a youth of competitive gymnastics and many small injuries, my body hurt almost continually. I was taking aspirin daily at the full allowable amount - something had to change. So, I began seeing a terrific chiropractor. For the next 25 years, that was the bargain. I could manage the pain with weekly trips for treatment, but, I could never be more than a week or two between visits. Then I was told about Rolfing and Wanda. On the first appointment, to my surprise, Wanda was not concerned with my pain location. Her method involved understanding my body’s relationship to gravity. She then systematically started breaking down the adhesions, scar tissue and facia that held my body in place. By this method, she moved my body into the posture it required to align properly with gravity. About a month after Wanda’s treatments began, I realized I wasn’t waking up and taking note of what hurt most. I can now go months between treatments. For me this was a miracle."
“Since I began my sessions with Wanda I have felt much less tension in my back and shoulders, and an increased awareness of how different areas of my body feel.”
“Wanda is a very skilled and knowledgeable rolfing therapist. My sessions with her have brought major changes to my body-mind-emotional system. Posture is now upright and open, walking is an easy and fluid movement, and breathing is efficient rather than a chore. Wanda’s use of rolfing enabled me to dredge up and release long buried emotional debris. We are very fortunate to have a person of Wanda’s caliber in our midst."
“My daughter and I have been going to Wanda for several months for Rolfing sessions. My body feels lighter and is more mobile than before. I am able to twist my body further than I have in years. Also, my back does not hurt anymore when I stand on tile. We have seen a big improvement in my daughter’s lower back area that has been plagued with Scoliosis since she was a toddler. Thank you, Wanda, for your hard work and patience with our daughter.”
“I have received work from several Rolfing therapists in years past, none as masterful as Wanda Silva! Wanda is a potter, re-molding the body. She combines her education, expertise, skill, intellect, and intuition to determine how and which area of the body needs to be remolded. She then works diligently on the tissues to create change. And she does this, incredibly, without creating pain… a talent that not many other Rolfing professionals have mastered. I highly recommend Wanda Silva’s work!”
