"I recently completed the 10 session Rolfing treatment with Teodora. It was life-changing for me! I've had increasingly bad chronic tightness and pain in my neck and shoulders stemming from my body being out of alignment from the way I move, sit, and carry tension. I'd been getting massages to relieve the pain weekly, but Rolfing here has given me a more long-lasting solution by addressing the causes not just the symptoms. Teodora's approach was not painful at all, which I mistakenly thought Rolfing would be. It was holistic, by which I mean she didn't just work on my body, but also taught me techniques to raise my own awareness and self-heal. She is down-to-earth, practical, professional and extremely skilled."

"I just finished a 10 session Rolfing series with Teodora, the owner. She is highly professional and gracious. She listened well and was thoughtful about the best way to customize her approach for my specific needs (pain in my right knee). I had been told by my physical therapist that Rolfing was painful, but, surprisingly, Rolfing by Teodora was NOT painful in the least! She elicits structural changes through patient, gentle pressure. Even better, she taught me new, better ways to stand, sit, and walk, and I am really enjoying practicing these new skills. I feel grounded, balanced, and relaxed in my body as never before."
"I came to see Teodora for a myofascial release for some tension issues I was having. She was extremely caring and can honestly say, one of the sweetest people I have ever met. She is great at what she does and you can tell she truly cares about the people she treats. Would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to make an improvement in their body and life!"

"It's been almost a year since I last needed the expert skills of Teodora, but this time I needed fixing in a hurry. We had a trip to Disneyland planned!
Both my knee and my shoulder weren't working - and that just wouldn't do. I was very lucky that she was available for 3 visits in the week before we left - and it worked! She worked a lot on my IT Band (?) which can be very painful (as I discovered in physical therapy) but happily, it wasn't with Teodora. I did still need to ice after a long day of running across both parks - but I'm old enough to need need that anyhow :-(
With Teodora's help, I was able to keep up with my companions and really enjoy myself for 3 incredible days. Not sure what I would have done without her and OnBalance."

"I came in to see Teodora because of multiple pains and stiffness in my neck, shoulder, and mid-back for a few weeks and could barely turn my head. She talked with me about what I was experiencing and how I was using (and abusing) my body. Then she went ahead and worked on massaging my problem areas as well as other related areas. After the first visit I felt quite a bit better and she sent me home with some advice before the next visit. By 3 visits my neck and back pains were virtually gone and I felt like I understood enough about avoiding them in the future. She's really good at listening and observing to figure out the best way to help. I highly recommend her!"
"This is the place to go for your aches and pains. After cleaning out my junk room in the house, doing a lot of twisting, turning and lifting I totally messed up my lower back. It was very difficult to walk or sit. Dora worked on me for about an hour. I am over weight and I worried about my size and whether or not she would be able to manipulate my body to give me what I needed. Dora is blessed with a special touch and apply's her professional skills throughout the entire time. She gave me tips on lifting and how to get up and out of chairs. I look forward to my next session and recommend."
