Rolf Massage NYC Testimonials
“My posture is noticeably better. I feel more aware of how I nurture myself…”
After having foot surgery and having constant right wrist pain, I’m so grateful I found Minki. Two different doctors said that I would need right wrist surgery, but after the Rolfing NYC Structural Integration 10 series, I’m proud to say I’m pain free and working as a stenographer five days a week without an issue. My foot was extremely stiff and my balance completely off, and again after the series, I’m back to running 5ks and feel balanced on my feet. My posture is noticeably better. I feel more aware of how I nurture myself daily and not abuse myself physically.
Thank you so much Minki for transforming this what I thought was a beaten up body into something new. Especially thankful that I didn’t need to undergo another surgery!
When I first heard about Rolf Structural Integration, I felt like it was the perfect time in my life to undergo a restorative and preventative form of physical therapy. My right shoulder area was bothering me but it wasn’t debilitating or in need of surgical attention. Minki is very attentive and knowledgeable about gently and naturally restoring your body to its original posture. I signed up for the 10-Series with full faith that I would feel 100% better afterward. His practice also helped me to move my body efficiently to avoid injury and fatigue. I can honestly say that I feel much more fluid in my daily movements and have a renewed sense of energy through simple posturing techniques. And, of course, my right shoulder functioning perfectly again!
“Minki’s Rolf massage work has helped to unravel some of the longstanding tension and pain in my back muscles.”
Minki Kim is a thorough, attentive and effective Structural Integration practitioner. I have suffered from scoliosis since a young age, resulting in a lifetime of imbalance and pain in my body.
Minki’s rolf massage work has helped to unravel some of the longstanding tension and pain in my back muscles and elsewhere.
Perhaps more important is that he helped to greatly raise my awareness of the condition of my different muscle groups and how they operate together, enhancing my ability to pinpoint and repair the correct muscle groups. In addition, he takes time at the end of each session to work on improving the mechanics of your every day bodily actions such as standing, sitting, getting up from a chair, walking, etc. He brings everything together with a personal, caring approach that delivers a focused and well thought out regimen to properly align the body and reduce pain.
"Minki helped eliminate my back pain, increased my flexibility, and improved my outlook on life!"
Minki is an incredibly talented Structural Integration practitioner who is dedicated to making you feel your best, inside and out! He is courteous, professional, and makes you feel at ease. Minki's holistic approach to treatment provides a customized plan for each client and produces great results. I am so thankful I signed up for the 10-session program! I am a registered nurse and have a history of back pain as a result of lifting heavy patients, being on my feet for long hours, etc... I also love to run but have issues with pulling muscles because I am not very flexible and stretching was always painful. Minki helped eliminate my back pain, increased my flexibility, and overall - improved my outlook on life! One day during the sessions, I even had a doctor I work with at the hospital tell me I looked taller. My mother is a physical therapist and she was extremely impressed with my change in posture over the 10-sessions. I am looking forward to my next "tune-up" and highly, highly recommend Minki!
My husband had 2 total hip replacement surgeries. From the pain, walking with a limp, and using a cane and crutches, his walk and his posture was so crooked, that one foot was much higher than the other when he stood straight. He is young and was devastated when told by the physical therapists that there was nothing they could do for his different foot heights, except to recommend wearing a shoe lift. I heard of Rolfing and my husband agreed to try.
Minki was extremely caring, kind, patient and informative from the 1st time on the phone, during every visit, and with follow ups after. My husband was able to see results of his crookedness getting straighter even after the first visit. Minki explained what was happening to my husband, so he was not stressed or scared by the process. It was a success! My husband had a big problem and this helped him completely. This would help anyone for many reasons. We all need Rolfing to make us be our very best. If every doctor, health practitioner, therapist and healer were as kind, caring and professional as Minki, all of us would be much happier and feel less stressed when dealing with our health issues. I recommend Minki whole heartedly!
I’ve recently completed the 10-Series with Minki and I couldn’t be happier with both the physical and mental results I’ve experienced throughout the series and continue to feel weeks after. Minki is highly skilled and knowledgeable in his field as well as friendly and attentive, one of those people that just gives you a really good feeling. I initially went to Minki for postural concerns and as each week went by, not only did I see physical improvement but I noticed my overall self image improving as well. Unlike other body work such as massage therapy, Rolf Structural Integration taught me about body awareness and efficiency that benefit me everyday. Minki creates a warm and comfortable environment and I highly recommend his practice to anyone looking to manage pain or stress in their life.
