Do I have to sign up for all 10? I'm not ready for that level of commitment...
Chad will work with you to plan a program of treatment that works with your time and financial constraints. At the very minimum, a commitment to three sessions is highly recommended if a particular issue needs to be addressed. 


Is it true that it's very painful?
'Pain' is a subjective experience for everyone. Chad works with each individual client to determine pain tolerance, and encourages every client to communicate immediately if he/she is uncomfortable. That being said, it can be uncomfortable at times to reset chronic patterns. Often, when a client does experience discomfort during a session, he/she describes it as a 'good' kind of pain that disappears immediately once contact is removed, which is quite different from chronic pain that lasts for years. Some clients are surprised to find that Rolfing sessions are often extremely subtle and gentle.
