The greatest ambassadors for Rolfing are those who have experienced its effects first hand. Here are my clients’ stories about their experiences of Rolfing in their own words.
“Confidence and authority in public speaking”
For the longest time I prized the mind over the body. The body was just the meat that kept the brain safe. Doing the Body Language and Body Confidence course led by Luke gave me a new appreciation of the role of the body in giving confidence and authority in public speaking. I wanted the benefits I perceived from that one day course to become more embodied, more enduring, so I signed up for the Rolfing ‘ten series’. The results are both simple and profound: access to a more grounded stance when speaking in public, heightened energy levels, improved deep breathing, but also alleviation of chronic aches and pains that were the consequence of poor body posture. I’ve also come away with a toolkit of techniques to continue the integration of body and mind.

“Completely tailored exploration”
Luke is wholeheartedly committed to the study and practice of Rolfing, and it shows in every aspect of his treatments. Each session was completely tailored to how I was at that time, like an exploration of how I was functioning and an intelligent leading back to better balance. I recommend Luke unreservedly.

“An amazing physical and transformational journey”
Completing the Rolfing 10 Series with Lukasz was an amazing physical and transformational journey. I decided to try Rolfing because I have bad posture due to Kyphosis, I was injuring myself all the time when exercising and I wanted to experience mind/body connection and feel more integrated in my body.
Lukasz has a wonderful gentle, assured manner which made me feel very comfortable. My posture improved and my body grew in strength and stamina. I had fewer aches and pains and injuries. The most dramatic change was in how I felt about my body. The physical awareness from each session made me more accepting of my body and by the end of the process I was aware that the mind/body split I had felt all my life had disappeared and I felt integrated for the first time. It is a wonderful feeling!

“The whole experience was a beautiful journey”
When signing up for my Rolfing sessions, I was hoping to gain a greater understanding and awareness of my body, to simply feel more comfortable in my own skin.
Rolfing is an amazing practice and the whole experience was a beautiful journey, a process of discovering my body’s full potential and becoming friends with it. As for Luke, he is a very skilled practitioner and his general warmth and peacefulness makes you feel comfortable and at ease during the sessions.
I was and still am really happy with the results. I can see enormous changes in my posture. My body feels more aligned and different parts of my body seem to be in harmony with each other. The sense of my personal space has improved and the way I walk and sit has changed for the better as well. All in all, I strongly recommend Rolfing as a practice and Luke as a practitioner. If you haven’t done it yet, do it!

“My body was in less pain and my flexibility had increased”
I contacted Luke as i was experiencing hip and lower back pain.
Luke was very professional and quickly understood what was happening in my body, which helped me to feel safe.
The treatment was very gentle and relaxing and I found myself becoming more aware of my body.
Luke suggested movements that I could try at home and books that I may want to read to increase my understanding of my body.
After the treatment, my body was in less pain and my flexibility had increased.
If you are in pain and would like to find a way forward I would recommend Rolfing with Luke.

“I will strongly recommend Luke”
I had always tension in my neck and lower back. Also, I would like to improve my posture to feel better in my own body and look more confident. I tried yoga pilates, but only ten Rolfing sessions with Luke fulfilled my dream. They took me on an incredible adventure, explore my own body, what changed my life mentally and physically. I will strongly recommend Luke.

“How much better it feels to be more aligned with oneself…”
As a natural skeptic, I was curious to discover what this strange thing called ‘Rolfing’ was all about and I have to say that after just one sample session I was pleasantly surprised. What I discovered was that most of the time I am completely unconscious about my body and how I work with it. That may sound a bit odd but that’s the cool thing about ‘Rolfing’ – it is odd. It was surprising to realise that I am ‘out of alignment’ with myself! And after one session, I had a heightened awareness about how that felt and more importantly, a sense of how much better it feels to be more aligned with oneself…physically.
If you’re curious – try it – Lukasz is a good guy and a skilful practitioner.

“Helped with longstanding issues”
Going through 10 Rolfing Sessions with Luke helped me a lot with my longstanding issues. I had problems with my lower back and legs for quite a while and Luke has helped sort me out. He knows what he is doing and is well worth a try. To sort out my problems he needed to get into the muscles and this can be challenging from a pain perspective but as they say – no gain without pain. For those of a gentler disposition he does not normally inflict pain!

“A beautiful journey”
When signing up for my first Rolfing session with Luke, I was hoping to gain a greater understanding and awareness of my body, to simply feel more comfortable in my own skin. I am half way through the process and can already see enormous changes in my posture. I feel more aligned and different parts of my body seem to be in harmony with each other. My breathing has improved and the way I walk and sit has changed for the better as well. Rolfing is an amazing practice and the whole experience has been a beautiful journey, a process of discovering my body’s full potential and becoming friends with it. As for Luke, he is a very skilled practitioner and his general warmth and peacefulness makes you feel comfortable and at ease during sessions.

“Improved confidence in public speaking”
I wanted to improve my confidence in public speaking and feel stronger on my feet when talking to colleagues and new business contacts.
Although I am still on my 10 session journey, I have already reaped huge benefits and reconnected to my body in ways that I had forgotten about or simply ignored over time. If I had heard myself saying these words a year or more ago, I would have dismissed them as crazy, but I now feel confident and actually eager to engage in discussion and outwardly connect with both new people and those I had previously withered in front of.
I’ve discovered some deep-seated habits that were the physical manifestation of emotional insecurities and anxiety. For example, when approaching difficult situations during meetings I would quite literally back away physically, exhibited by my posture tilting backwards, generating a feeling of unbalance in the body/mind and diminishing confidence. I’m glad to say that this problem is now almost entirely disappeared.
I now feel more supported by the ground, but also by a growing strength through my body from my toes to the top of my head. I understand that many will feel this concept difficult to comprehend, as I once did, but once you experience the tangible difference in your life, you will understand why some situations and experiences have been made inexplicably uncomfortable in the past. As an added bonus, I feel stronger when taking part in physical activity. My running has improved and I feel that both my endurance has increased and recovery time shorted significantly.
I wouldn’t hesitate recommending anyone to try Rolfing; not only to those who are already aware of problems with their body, but also the many people who don’t realise what they could unlock by connecting with themselves in a more meaningful way.

“I had complete trust in Luke”
I decided to sign up for the full 10 sessions of Rolfing because I had lost touch with my body and wanted to find my way back to physical exercise in a way that would work for me. My experience was one of continued fascination and learning, and I had complete trust in Luke in what was sometimes a challenging process. He was always gentle, supportive and insightful, and at the end of the 10 sessions I really felt as if my centre of gravity had shifted. Before Rolfing I’d had the tendency to hang back, but now I’m further forward – which has genuinely helped me move forward in my life with more ease. I can highly recommend Luke as a Rolfing practitioner.
Beverley Glick Rolfing sessions 22/06/2016
I have had a lot of experience of body work over the past decade, seen cranial osteopaths, somatic practitioners of varying schools including Reiki, Alexander Technique etc and am a firm believer that much of the cure to any healing phenomena lies within the field of the body.
However, I wasn’t quite ready for the powerful experience I had with Lukasz in the few sessions of Rolfing we had. I found each session almost miraculous in the way I felt afterwards both within my body and my countenance. The way I walked changed and I felt a great sense of grounding and expansion I’ve not felt with any other body work up until then.
Not only was it the “Rolfing” technique that seemed to work deeply for me, it was Lukasz’s calm, kind and gentle presence and reassuring energy. He is without doubt a very gifted and talented clinician and one whom I have absolute faith in and would recommend to anyone, and indeed do to many of my clients. I urge you to give Rolfing and Lukasz a try, for me it was life changing and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

“Great insight as to why my body was functioning the way it was”
I came to Luke with a long standing lower back problem. After the assessment of my posture he provided with great insight as to why my body was functioning the way it was.
Later on we were working on the upper part of my body with many amendments on my posture, the shoulders, the neck as well as the spine. This already helped me improve my posture as I sit at my desk at work every day, with the way I stand, and also my posture on my bicycle.
On our second session were working with my legs, also amending my landing and stride as I walk, and raising levels of consciousness about it.
Lastly we have connected the upper and the lower body by working on the side to side movements of both parts. Even though I have been working with my body for the last 30 years, this has really been an eye opener for me on the very basics of the mechanical principals of walking.
Luke also provided me with practical advice as to how to use my body in everyday activities more efficiently. He helped me realise that in order for these methods to work one really has to make them part of their lives.

“My body can do things I couldn’t even dream of”
I have just completed the first 10 Rolfing classes: what a journey! I experienced big positive changes in my body, my posture and my attitude towards the world. I approached Luke and his method because he got recommended to me by a dancer friend of mine, as I was determined to finally deal with some tensions in my back that had accompanied me for many years. Not only those tensions have dissolved but I also discovered that my body can do things that before I could not even dream of and that the way we stand and move is deeply connected to our well being and our outlook on life. I found Luke not only a masterful practitioner but also a reliable person who has accompanied me through my journey, offering his precious insight and support and suggesting me the right questions to ask myself. I definitely want to continue working with him and I absolutely recommend him.

“A profound change in the way I stand and walk”
I went to see Lukasz to try and sort some postural problems (basically the result of sitting on my arse for the past 20 years). The outcome: a profound change in the way I stand and walk, which has resolved many of the issues I had. Recommended!

“Much more flexible, straighter and more balanced”
No hesitation in recommending Lukasz. I went to see him with nothing in particular hugely wrong – more a curiosity to see what rolfing was about and a desire for a bit more flexibility in my yoga practice. Over ten sessions I noticed a variety of changes and now much more flexible, straighter and more balanced. Lukasz has a tailored approach so you don’t feel you’re going through a set, predetermined process and is both perceptive and professional. Thanks Lukasz!

“Deep knowledge about how the body works”
I can’t recommend Luke enough. He is a very passionate therapist, with a deep knowledge about how the body works. No matter whether the aim of the session would be to improve the posture, allow more freedom of movement or simply to help with pain or stiffness, every treatment with him would always exceed any expectations I might have had.
Every rolfing session with Luke has always been a truly profound and liberating experience, but also a lesson in understanding the functioning of the body with plenty to take away and work with in daily life.

“My body is comfortable and movements effortless”
I have had a bad back posture for many years. I have tried some physical exercise to improve my condition but without success. A friend of mine highly recommended Rolfing, I was sceptical at first as I doubted that the benefits would be sustainable, but I decided to trust my friend and to give Rolfing a chance. I was very impressed by Luke. He was genuinely passionate about Rolfing and committed to helping me. Having been through the process, now I understand why Rolfing’s benefits are sustainable. Luke helped my body to rediscover its natural balance. I have noticed that after Rolfing my body knows how to return itself to balance making me feel more comfortable and my movements effortless.

“All tension realised and pain gone”
Want to say a big thank you to Luke Gregorczyk for Rolfing Massage session yesterday. I had a sharp pain in my lower back and my neck hardly moved to the right after an injury. When I came to Luke he provided to me a very trustable professional consultation and relaxing atmosphere. After a one hour session I felt much better, all tension realised and pain gone. Luke asked me to walk a bit after the session and gave me tips on how to keep my posture and how to be aware of how to walk in the right way. Today I woke up very fresh and feeling finally rested after all that pain and tension. Thank you very much Luke, it was an amazing experience!

“Rolfing comes to stay”
I had heard so much about Rolfing in the past. A friend had suffered from strong back pain and he got so much better through his 10 sets of Rolfing. That sounded intriguing to me… Luke is highly professional at all times. I always felt very comfortable during sessions with him. At the same time he is very relaxed whilst having incredible knowledge of the body and its functions, a great curiosity and incredible ability to observe and listen.
One of the most beautiful discoveries with Rolfing has been personally that Rolfing comes to stay. It is not just a short time improvement but a lasting, different awareness of my body that gives me a whole new range of possibilities.
I am primarily interested in using Rolfing as a way to support my running. Already after the first session I could feel subtle changes. Luckily those changes stayed with me. I run now not only faster, but also more aware. I gained completely new body consciousness, something I am deeply grateful for.
I feel like my body has opened up thanks to the sessions with Luke. I feel it particularly when running.
I am strongly recommending Rolfing for everyone keen on improving their sports. You gain greater awareness, train more effortless, gain better results in competitions whilst avoiding injuries through better posture. I am highly recommending it to fellow runners.

“More aware of how my body is working”
I’ve just finished a taster of three Rolfing sessions and I want to continue. Why? Because Luke has helped me become more aware of how my body has been working so far, patently guiding me through the process of change in my movements and general body alignment. Looking forward to complete the full set of sessions! Try it for yourself. Great and lasting value!
Rita Rolfing sessions 22/06/2016
I tried Rolfing as I was keen to improve my posture and various efforts to do so in the past had not been successful. The process was very clear and very structured – a different aspect of movement was addressed each week. The benefits have been enormous. My posture has improved significantly and in a sustainable way – and I experienced a step-change in my awareness of my own movement. I would recommend this process to anyone!

“I couldn’t believe there was no pain”
I have hernia in lower part of my back. Because of pain I could not lie down and keep both legs straight, I always bends one leg. I had it for 2 years.
After first session I woke up next morning and couldn’t believe I was lie on my back with both legs straight and no pain.
After Rolfing sessions I’ve got a lot of knowledge about my body. What’s good exactly for me.
