What Clients Say

“I appreciate Ben’s work greatly. I originally sought his help for a rotator cuff injury. With his assistance I am learning how to achieve greater flexibility and mobility in the midst of this challenging rehab.”

C. Lasack
“I have been Ben’s client since 2000 and I see him every three weeks. He is a well-educated rolfer and has always been able to explain whatever issues I’ve developed from my exercise routine. When I first started seeing him, I had pulled a muscle in my leg and couldn’t walk. As soon as he treated me, I could walk and soon afterward I was back on the trail… He truly has magic hands.”

B. Zahedi - Berkeley CA
“I started working with Ben 10 years ago because I was facing surgery for a shoulder issue that prevented me from playing golf. I found him to be not only very skilled, knowledgeable, and effective but also very thoughtful and easy to work with. The original problem resolved, without surgery and I have continued to meet with him on a regular basis to prevent other problems from developing. Honestly he has kept me in the game all these years.”
R. Carter
“I spend 3 to 4 hours a day exercising, playing racquetball, doing long distance biking, and weight training at the gym… I would not be able to do all that without Ben’s help and encouragement. It’s great to feel free doing any activity I like knowing I have Ben’s help and input. I’m 64 years old.”

B. Zahedi - Berkeley CA
“I have continued to work with Ben throughout the last 10 plus years to repair years of poor posture and gait issues that resulted in frequent falls. With Ben’s work, in conjunction with Pilates, I’m now impossibly an inch taller and haven’t had a significant fall in years. I like to be comfortable in my body and with Ben’s skilled work, at 69 years, I am. ”
