client praises

Here are what some of my clients, past and present, have to say about my services:

"I would highly recommend Rolfing to everyone reading this!

It's the only modality to restore the full range of movement in every muscle even better than A.R.T. You don't have to be an athlete or even an athletic person to experience its incredible benefits. If you're like me, I was constantly stretching... also made constant visits to the Chiropractor only to find myself out of alignment days later. After Rolfing, you'll find yourself going to the Chiropractor less because the adjustments hold so much longer! Also, emotions are stored in our tissue, so those can also be released making you feel mentally better.

Dan is an incredible practitioner and I highly recommend doing the entire 10-series!

Your body will thank you!"

Rob Schliff, Solana Beach

"I’ve had hundreds of deep tissue sessions before I met Daniel and nothing compares to what he can do. Absolutely astonishing work! I am completely sold on Rolfing for life. If you’ve tried to do other things to recover from injuries and they haven’t worked, you must try this. I've done six sessions, and I feel like I’m 15 years younger. All my pain and discomfort is gone!"

Joe Higuera, Cardiff

"I went thru the Rolf series with Dan last year and had impressive results. My posture improved and the pain in my feet, lower back and shoulders disappeared. Dan was very professional and effective during the treatments. He explained all of his techniques and the reasons why they were done in that order. He was also flexible enough to go back and address certain issues that arose in the middle of our work thru the series. I was very satisfied with Dan's work and would highly recommend him to anyone suffering with chronic pain from old sports injuries or years of poor posture."

Laura Tucker, Orange County

"Daniel E. Gilbert provides the best Rolfing experience you can ever imagine. His intuitive connection to your body is supreme (uncanny). I'm on session 7 and am still finding and fine-tuning out the kinks. Many people get body work done when they become aware there's a problem. Yet, being proactive instead of reactive, getting it done before you know you need it, saves you time and momentum. Resolving something subtle before it's exacerbated enough that you feel it and results in down time plus the healing necessary to get going again. Why get knocked down and have to start again from the beginning when all it takes is proactive work to "keep you in the pink"? Rolfing is one of the best ways to keep your body's foundational structure aligned and working optimally, and you operating at your peak. Getting the work done by Dan is well-worth the drive."

Gloria Haswell, Orange County

"The Rolf sessions provided by Daniel are truly life-changing. My total body has been opened up to a new awareness and appreciation, not only physically but mentally, emotionally, and spiritually as well."

Lisa Ligaya Terona, Oceanside

"I feel great after completing 10 sessions of Rolfing with Daniel E Gilbert. My pain is gone and the numbness in my right arm resolved. I feel like I have increased range of motion and have no more tension and pain in my neck and shoulders. I recommend Rolfing to all my clients as it improves posture and restores that youthful vitality."

Kerry Knitz Wagner, San Clemente

"Rolf Method - releases emotional and physical traumas our bodies endured and stored in our tissue via cellular memory, resulting in blocked energy. Our subconscious minds, lacking awareness, perpetuates the previous trauma, disallowing optimal energy flow. This energetic imbalance often shows up as undesired manifestations or not being our greatest expression of ourselves. Today was my first Rolfing treatment with Daniel and I was amazed in appreciation with the instant shift I experienced and observed in my body's alignment. Really fun and helpful - wow!!"

Danyelle DeWolf, Carlsbad 

"I am an 81 year-old man in pretty good physical shape. One of the main reasons for this is the regular treatments that I have received from Dan Gilbert for the past ten years. It is his concern and directed treatment to address my 'aches and pains' that has always improved my situation. Dan certainly has intimate knowledge of every muscle in the body, its function, and its effects on connecting elements. But Dan's strong point is his genuine desire to understand your problem and make sure that he addresses it in a caring way."
Harold Weinberger, San Diego 

"My husband has been seeing Dan for nearly 20 years in helping him with his back. I have known Dan for almost as long, and have been having regular sessions twice per month for over ten years. I have always told Dan that he keeps me upright. He has helped me many years ago with an ankle sprain, and more recently with hip pain, and then lately has helped immensely in improving the health of my shoulder. My husband and I are truly grateful for Dan's continued dedication to our health."
Mary Peshel, San Diego

"Just finished my 1st session, and it was amazing and eye-opening experience. Daniel is not only a natural healer; he also very intuitive, which was helpful when addressing some of my problem areas. Not only was he able to relieve the tension that I carry in my neck and shoulders, he was also excellent at communicating the Rolfing process, what to expect, how all the areas of body are connected, and how one muscle affects another."
Lisa Boyle, Encinitas 

"My Rolfing session with Daniel was powerful!!! He was able to get to releases of the muscles along both legs, tremendously reducing the chronic pain in my left knee. If you can breathe into it, you can move to new levels of living because the process brings your body into flow and out of resistance."
Colleen Turner, Ph.D., Encinitas

"Had my first session with Daniel and first session of Rolfing ever today. I've been searching for something like this for 8 years and hope this helps me get where I want to go. Very impressed with Daniel's approach and technique."
PJ Barrett, Portland

"This was an amazing experience. I could literally feel my muscles melting into relaxation. It was great working “with” Daniel. He focused right in on where my body needed to be worked on. I appreciated how he walked me through each step explaining each procedure and how to work with him to accomplish the final results of my body feeling fantastic. I highly recommend him." 

Joy Ashlock, North Carolina

"You have such a fantastic knowledge base of the muscle sets and Rolfing (Structural Integration) technique. I love how my neck feels after a treatment. Thank you for knowing how to help heal the body and relieve pain. ~Namaste"

Amelia Harmonie, Encinitas

"Just had a Rolfing session from Daniel Gilbert. Wow! It’s been many years since I first had Rolfing sessions and I forgot how amazing I feel after. Dan clearly loves what he does and his passion and experience were clear. I can highly recommend Dan and his Rolfing skills."

Tyrone Lam, Cardiff

"Had my second (of ten) Rolfing sessions with Daniel last night and it is already making a difference in my back. For the first time I can remember, I don't have a muscular hump on my right side from the kyphosis, and my scaps are laying down evenly. I also find when sitting at work, a natural inclination to sit up more straight rather than hunched - which is the opposite of what I usually feel. And the best part is that my back is pain free and doesn't feel this middle pressure I have known all of my life. And we are just beginning? Wow!"
