Chicago Tribune article from 2010 quoting a Rolfing client which totally describes my own experience: "The effects of Rolfing didn't really sink in until the day after my second session. It was late afternoon, and I was walking between lunch errands. I'd been walking for about five minutes at a steady clip before it hit me: I was walking better.

I was carrying myself with better posture than before, and there
was an easy swing in my arms."
