Jason Sager is a certified Rolfer and Rolf Movement trainer as well as a nationally
competitive swing dancer. He found his way to Rolfing® through his love of body
mechanics in dancing and has since then found his calling in helping people heal
their injured bodies. Jason's style of work is very intuitive and marked by attention
to individual needs.
"My interest in Rolfing® started in 2005 when a friend was involved in a car
accident. She had fairly intense shoulder pain afterwards that regular shoulder
rubs, etc. could not alleviate. She was referred to a Rolfer and after 3 sessions was
virtually pain-free. She thought I would be a good Rolfer, but at the time I was not in
a place where I was ready to pursue such a drastic change from computer
programming to bodywork.
Over the past 5 years I have developed a very strong interest in body mechanics
through my participation in the Raleigh swing dancing scene. I have taught Lindy
and East Coast Swing for the past 3 years and have a strong sense of movement
and ability to analyze people's movements as a result.
I have spent a lot of time working on my posture for dance over the years and
around the beginning of 2007 I had hit a point of diminishing returns. No matter
how much I stretched it still meant a sustained effort to fully stand up straight, so I
decided to try Rolfing®. After my first session I was hooked and immediately felt
that Rolfing® was the career for me.
I spent most of late 2007 and 2008 travelling to Boulder and Brazil and completed
my Rolfing® training in December of 2008."
My Approach to Rolfing®:
First and foremost in my mind, Rolfing® is a physical therapy. Most often, people
are coming to Rolfing® for issues with pain and I do my best to strike a balance
between temporary relief or pain symptoms and longer-term relief of the issues
creating pain. I often find that relieving a client's primary pain brings to light a
number of lesser contributing pains that they were unaware of because of the
primary. The more layers of disfunction are peeled back, the more people can
become comfortable and strong in their bodies.
In a wider sense, I consider Rolfing® to be a guided exploration for the client
through his or her own body. Every body is different, so I aim to approach every
session with a sense of questioning, looking for what a client needs rather than
fitting them into a box. This can be range from simply alleviating aches and pains to
exploring the mind/body connection and its effect on emotional and spiritual
components of the client's life.
