Longtime Bodyworker Brings Rolfing Back to Pensacola




Sharalee Hoelscher

Sharalee Hoelscher, the Pensacola area’s only certified Rolfer, has returned to work after a year on sabbatical. Rolfing is a specialized physical rehabilitation technique designed to eliminate the source of pain and movement restrictions.
Hoelscher says during her time off she met privately with senior instructors at the Colorado-based Rolf Institute to enrich her skills at restoring strength and ease of movement. “Rolfing restores optimal function to the body by working with ligaments, tendons and the tissue that supports joints, organs and muscles,” she says. “This is not a massage. A certified Rolfer uses his or her hands to get these tissues functioning correctly and in the right position, so bones and muscles can move properly and support the body correctly. Rolfing is also painless, and the results last. After just a few sessions, your body can move with ease and strength, in a balanced and coordinated way.”
 Rolfing can be a solution for people who get only temporary or partial relief from other therapies, chiropractic adjustments or medications, she adds. It is used to resolve old and new injuries; back, neck or joint pain; painful, restricted movement; plantar fasciitis; poor posture; chronic muscle tension; repetitive stress injuries; headaches; and problems with the shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, ankles and feet.
 Hoelscher, whose Pensacola office is centrally located in Cordova Square, has been a licensed bodyworker in private practice for 25 years. “I am deeply committed to getting people moving freely without pain,” she says.
