" I have just finished my 10-session Rolfing series with Kelly Diamond. I feel less tension in my body; I am more relaxed and 'grounded' as I walk and I've noticed that my right foot (which always seemed to splay outwards) is straighter. My posture has improved and my range of motion, especially in my shoulders and neck is better. I highly recommend this practice and believe it can help both physical and mental stress in almost anyone. I was a little cautious about signing up, because I had heard that Rolfing could be somewhat 'rough', but I found that Kelly is very sensitive to her client's well being. Although there is some discomfort as she gently manipulates connective tissues, I always enjoyed the sessions and felt safe and secure in her expert knowledge."
"I first came upon Rolfing at the Bikram Yoga Concord five year anniversary in mid November 2013. I remember having this wonderful feeling in my fingers, hands, wrists, forearms, and elbow joint areas after an abbreviated session on my arms. Like they were all connected in a serenely functional way. I played Frisbee later that day and it felt wonderful how fluidly I could throw it. I’ve been throwing a Frisbee for almost 50 years.
I think it took me a couple of sessions to really start grasping the full extent of what was being done to me. It was like all of my body’s supporting structures ( ie: fascia, muscles, ligaments, tendons, bones) were all being melded back or opened up to where they were healthiest, most functional, and certainly most comfortable. Everything seemed more in align, true, a certain heightened awareness of oneself’s being. My yoga practice had a growth spurt as my balance/strength improved rather dramatically. I honestly can’t remember feeling this healthy and aware of my physique in space in decades! As I finished the ten sessions I realized that Kelly was giving me an overall overhaul on how to look at my body. How to carry my body differently in space. How to treat my body. How to even walk differently. It wasn’t just her physical manipulations on my anatomical structure. Through a series of observations she gave ideas, exercises, cues that were designed to keep her correctional work in tact. I plan on having tune ups as needed with Kelly.
Many people have made my physical/mental/spiritual journey so much more pleasant despite all of my continued obstacles and hurdles as I age. Kelly Diamond is going to make many, many, many people feel better, more comfy and certainly healthier. Of that I’m certain."
“I initially went to see Kelly Diamond for 10 sessions of Rolfing in the hope that she could fix a long-term problem with the muscles around my hip. The results were better than my wildest expectations. As the sessions progressed, instead of fixating on whether my hip hurt or not, I started to enjoy just being in my body and the joy of movement. It was like mind, body and spirit were coming together. My breathing deepened and felt like velvet. I slept better than I had in years. It even seemed like I needed less food and had more energy. In the end, I stopped thinking about whether or not I had a hip problem and now, months later, I’m starting to think it might be gone for good. Overall, I feel better connections, both within myself, and with friends, family and community. I believe Kelly is a skilled healer. She brings to her practice both a sound theoretical knowledge and intuitive sense of how to smooth out problem spots within the body. I highly recommend her as a Rolfing practitioner.”

"I had the Rolfing 13 sessions (included movement sessions) with Kelly in Colorado. I went in with general stiffness and some pain, and basically feeling pretty old for 50 years. I noticed several shifts along the way, and ultimately felt much “looser” by the time we finished 13 sessions. I can move around more freely and I feel more limber and not so tight. I’m also more aware of how I walk and sit from the Rolfing sessions with Kelly. I would highly recommend Kelly for Rolfing. She was very focused on me during our sessions, plus I could tell she had a good handle on anatomy and the human body. Kelly was also a good listener and observer and intuitive."
"I came to Kelly a little over a year ago after an arthroscopic hip surgery and PT for a partially torn rotator cuff. While I had reached a certain level of recovery in both areas, I felt there was room for improvement and further recovery. Using Rolfing techniques, Kelly was able to improve my alignment and reduce pain in my areas of concern as well as improve my general good health. She has an excellent understanding of the mechanics of the human body and a firm yet gentle touch, which has ultimately taken me to a higher level of wellness. Not only is Kelly a skilled Rolfer, she also has a lovely way of connecting with you as a client and as a person!"
“I have had serious neck issues as well as shoulder pain and nerve pain down my arms for a number of years. And for years I have told many practitioners that it stemmed from my back shoulder area. I have had excellent practitioners including Chiropractic, sports medicine, deep tissue massage, PT and have had cortisone shots. All have "helped" but sadly only temporarily. After eyeing Rolfing for years I finally decided to try it and I can't say enough about Kelly and her practice. My shoulders and neck move more freely then they have in years!, Hands down, incredible! At first the fees may put you off, but honestly they are not much more than for a good massage, and it is a 70 minute session (90 minute the first session) and with much longer lasting results. Kelly's approach is planned after a lengthy discussion with you (the client) and it is a long term plan. Each session begins with a reevaluation from the previous one. I have had 7 sessions and plan to have three more in a few months. You can space them out every few weeks, but honestly I felt so good I didn't want to wait. Kelly is careful to check in with regularly you as to the intensity of the treatment. I stand straighter and walk more upright and with greater freedom of movement. Kelly is highly skilled at what she does and is truly passionate about her work and the results. I can't recommend her enough.”
