Had extreme back and leg cramps causing severe tension all over body, had trouble relaxing as all muscles felt contracted. Visited Jill with back emergency on a Sunday and after session felt immediate benefit. Signed up for the full course that day. Back tension has almost gone but what remains is due to repetitive work situation. Now visit every two or 3 months just to keep things relaxed and supple. Would thoroughly recommend this therapy, had tried various chiropracters in the past but results were short lived usually lasted about 6 to 7 weeks.
Just home from my 10th session, Jill had worked wonders, eased all my aches and pains! After an operation a few years ago I grew to accept I would always have niggles, aches and pains the doctors only offering medication and I wanted to put that off for as long as possible. I was recommended Jill so dropped her a mail really not knowing if this was for me. I noticed after just the 1st session my hands were less painful by the 3rd I was able to look over my shoulder when driving without moving my body (I hadn’t even noticed I was doing that). Don’t get me wrong the sessions some sessions where not relaxing or comfortable but Jill distracted me with her enjoyable chat. After my 10th session I rarely feel the need for medication, I am more flexible and moving around with easy, maybe better than I did befor the op! I would highly recommend anyone to contact Jill and find out how she can help them.
Firstly, I have to declare an interest: I received my training - both the auditing and practitioning phase - from Nilce. As a result, her workshop was like coming home and being wrapped in a warm blanket. Everything about it was welcoming and comforting. Nilce is an increasingly rare phenomenon; she is steeped in the traditions of The Guild back through to Dr Rolf and the original students she left her practice to, Peter Melchior and Emmet Hutchins. Within her, the original fundamentals of SI continue. That is not to say she is unable or unwilling to embrace new ideas, rather that she filters them through the lens of the original work. The workshop was open and expansive. It was helped enormously by having practitioners from several schools. The discussions were lively throughout. Nilce led by example, never happier than when giving a session (something all of us received). The workshop was great. Working with Nilce and seeing her work was a privilege.
I suffer chronic musculoskeletal pain caused by Scoliosis kyphosis, Osteoporosis and Degenerative Disc Disease. NHS advised me to embark on regular weekly exercise (Yoga, Pilates, Core Gym work & Aqua-fit class). After a Yoga class Jill approached me in her role as a Rolfing practitioner. I had tried various alternative therapies with little improvement in pain reduction so was initially sceptical. I had 10 sessions: after Session 3 I was standing straighter, feeling more centred and grounded. By Session 7 my balance was better, breathing capacity improved & range of motion/posture dramatically improved. There was some reduction in pain levels. This will be an ongoing program of 6 monthly visits for me. Jill and I worked well together, she is a delightful, caring, highly experienced practitioner. I feel grateful to have found such an effective , dedicated S.I. Practitioner in my local community. I would like NHS to consider S.I. therapy for fellow Scoliosis sufferers. Thank you Jill
