Jim Arkison, Rolfing Practitioner
Jim Arkison was led to Rolf Structural Integration during his search for help for his bad back and knees from playing sports. Not wanting surgery, he decided to try the 10-treatment Rolfing series created by Dr. Rolf in 1984. He was so impressed with the results that he eventually went back to school to pursue this profession. He was certified in acupressure in 1985, massage in 1986, and in myomassology in 1987. He completed his education at the Guild for Structural Integration in Colorado in 1991. Since then he has given up doing any other bodywork so he can focus his practice on Rolfing. He continues his association with the Guild and is also a member of the Association for Bodywork and Massage Professionals.
