Professional sports teams are known to
have Rolfing® Structural Integration
as a part of their training and
recuperation regimens. The Phoenix
Suns and the Minnesota Vikings are
two examples of teams using Rolfing to
enhance player performance.
Sometime last fall, I got a voice mail
from Erik Owings. After listening to the
message, I was pleased to learn of
another athlete of professional caliber
with enthusiasm for Rolfing.
Erik is a mixed martial artist (MMA)
who owns the gym Mushin NYC and
has fought on the professional level in
the UFC (Ultimate Fighting
Corporation). He and Welterweight
Champion Georges St. Pierre
(GSP) created the RushFIT ultimate
home fitness workout. In addition, his
most recent ventures included
developing his own vitamin line and
writing a nutrition and fitness manual.
When Erik came in for his first session
last fall, he said he’d known about
Rolfing for quite some time, having
read “The Endless Web” by Rosemary
Feitis DO and Louis Shultz DO, both of
whom are Rolfers™ and direct students
of Dr. Ida Rolf herself. The book made a
lot of sense to him; it described the
structural relationship of the body,
held together by our connective tissue,
or facial system. He suspected his body
had a lot of scar tissue and bound
fascia. He frequently suffered from
persistent pain upon awakening and
thought that it was due to his rigorous
training regimen and the injuries he
accrued over the years and fighting
professionally in the UFC. His body
showed plenty of evidence of past
damage: a stab wound in the ribs, a
torn meniscus, an 18″ scar down the
inside of the left lower leg, broken
fingers, head trauma, and even a
temper now and then.
After just a few sessions, Erik would
look forward to his Rolfing more and
more. My Rolfing treatments surpassed
his expectations and reduced his
chronic pain significantly. Unlike
self-massage tools, Rolfing provided
the necessary manual rigor and
precision to decompress his body and
relax him while building on positive
improvements in his range of motion
and agility for his training.
After about a year, he stands more
open and aligned, moves with greater
ease, and feels stronger than ever.
Rolfing has helped him manage his
lower back tension, knee pain, and neck
tightness. He feels less stressed and
more energized and has since included
things in his training that he has never
done before, such as half-hour long
static free standing squats and one
handed pull ups.
Erik feels that, as an athlete and
fitness specialist, the only way to stay
“in the game” and prevent serious
injury is to make the time for and
commit to regular hands-on therapy.
For him, this therapy is Rolfing. In fact,
he feels so positive about his experience
that he refers me to his closest friends
and clients, including GSP.
For me, it’s definitely rewarding to
provide a form of bodywork that makes
such an impact to Erik’s training. To all
of you athletes out there, make sure to
support your fitness with a
recuperation regimen. Try Rolfing with
