"When I started I had pretty bad pain in my hips and lower back and pretty bad posture. Elias worked with me to determine where I was and where I hoped to be. Over the series of ten sessions, I saw marked improvement each time. And it stuck! I didn't just feel better for a week, I still feel better. My pain is mostly gone and I'm standing taller than ever!"

"Of the practitioners of Rolfing in the Chicago area, I sought out Elias because he had been trained at the Rolf Institute and he seemed to love what he does. My goal was to feel more integrated as a Spiritual being, particularly to feel my body as a seamless part of my overall experience. Elias is patient, gentle, Spiritual, warm, bright, firm and strives for excellence in serving his clients. I realized this once we started working together and so I decided on a series of 10 sessions. I’m so glad I did because my experience of my body has evolved through the work Elias did with me. I am tremendously grateful for his priceless help and support on my journey."

"Sessions with Elias has changed my life in many ways, I am no longer in pain! This summer, on vacation, de-stressing from work, I woke up at this beautiful B & B in IN in a significant amount of pain in my neck and left side of my body, with nothing to cause it other than maybe age or inactivity due to working at a desk job for long hours.
Remembering an article I saw on Rolfing, I looked up practitioners in my area. This is how I found Elias. After a thorough phone convo about history and symptoms; my 1st appt with him I felt significantly better. My neck pain was gone and my body felt more relaxed and in a more natural, comfortable position. I felt more balanced & rooted / supported.
After several sessions, I am completely pain free. My shoulders sit naturally ‘back & down’ my hip pain is gone and I am running again.
With Elias’s guidance, I have a better understanding of evaluating my body and space around me. Taking note of where I carry stress, how I sit at my desk, etc. This awareness keep my body in check to be in a more comfortable position. Making small, natural adjustments keeps me pain free. I highly recommend an evaluation and sessions with Elias!"

"I went to Elias after many years of frequent chiropractor visits and deep tissue massages to keep up with the wear and tear of an active lifestyle. At the time I went to Elias, I was frustrated with the results and constant maintenance of these methods. I completed a Ten Series with Elias and within a couple of sessions I noticed a difference immediately. I knew Elias was getting to the root cause of my issues rather than treating the symptoms. I move and feel better than I have in over ten years. I am so relieved I found Elias as I did not want to give up the activities I enjoy or live in pain any longer. I highly recommend his services as my quality of life has greatly improved since seeing him."

"I came to Elias because of pain that did not respond to traditional medical treatments. Unfortunately, Rolfing did not relieve my pain but changed my body in ways I never would have expected. I completed the 10-Series and have noticed wonderful changes in my movements, balance, and workouts. I thought before Rolfing I could not do many activities do to getting older. Boy was I mistaken! Rolfing is an incredible experience a person can go through. Elias is awesome. He is so pleasant to work with. He explained each session step by step. He really knows Rolfing. I am so glad I completed the 10-series and found Elias."

"I had a terrific experience doing a series of ten Rolfing sessions with Elias. He helped me unlock some long-held tension in my lower back and other areas while also learning how to better attune to my physical sensations and tendencies. The results for me have been significantly increased physical comfort, greater mobility, and a sense of being able to move through the world with a deeper sense of awareness and support. Thanks Elias!"

"I have had the opportunity to experience the benefits of a Rolfing massage in other cities,, and so while I was visiting my hometown of Chicago, I discovered the amazing Rolfing skills of Elias. Prior to seeing Elias, it had been over a year since I had a Rolfing massage and my body was experiencing all sorts of pain in my pelvic, lower back and hips. After receiving services from Elias, I immediately received the decompression and relief from the pain that I so desperately needed in my body. If you have not experienced the skills of a Rolfing massage, I highly recommend you try Elias. It will help you to rediscover your strength, stability, flexibility and overall sense of well-being."

"Elias has helped me greatly. He explains everything very well and listens attentively-to what your needs are and he’s very knowledgeable about his practice. He has an easy manner yet is very professional and focused. 5 stars!"

"Rolfing has improved my posture and eased some chronic pains. I've worked with three Rolfers off and on for 20 years. I repeated the 10-series with Elias. He did a great job of challenging my body to give up some of those physical compensations that come with age, past injuries and years of working at a desk. I feel like I carry myself more like a younger man (I'm 69). Also, Elias did a great job of explaining Rolfing, helping me understand what is and how it is helping me reach my goals."

"As a dentist I struggle with daily/chronic aches and pains, from head to toe. Couldn’t find relief anywhere. Someone I know mentioned Rolfing as a possible solution... I was clueless about it all but I spoke to Elias and he walked me through the process and philosophy. He is thorough and professional— never felt like he was selling or pressuring me. I ended up doing one trial session before enthusiastically diving in for the 10session series (each session has a specific purpose). I am writing this review 2 weeks post-series, and my new norm is so amazing!!! I’ve told many people— if I knew that Rolfing was all it took to reduce my pain, improve my posture/range of motion/movement, I WOULD HAVE COMMITTED 10years ago! Elias is an all-star and gives 100% to his job and clients. Very responsive and accessible. 5-stars. thanks, Elias!!"

"here is the deal about rolfing: few people know about it, and more should. it's like a thorough restructuring of our bodies that go through demanding lifestyles no matter what you do. I personally do a lot of restoring, which takes its toll. here is the deal about Elias: he's a practitioner that has devoted his life to studying human body, and it shows. I remember asking him about how he got into rolfing. he said that after he had work done on himself, he left everything, got his training, and started his practice. that's some strong vote of confidence, wouldn't you say?"

"Incredibly professional and kind. I definitely see and feel the difference after working with Elias. The way I carry myself, lift weights, and do yoga has all been altered for the better.
If you’re considering this modality as an option for pain reduction and/or healing from injury, I highly recommend giving this a try.
While challenging to explain to someone what exactly Rolfing is, the best way of thinking about it is a reorganization or body modification. It brings more body awareness and gives you the tools/vocabulary to express subtle changes within yourself."
