Tight neck. Rolfing session effects before and after photos.

Meet @jaz_boom_pt

My colleague @jaz_boom_pt came to me complaining about #tightness in his neck. His neck became stiff after playing with his kids while having #DOMS from his back session on the weekend. Our session took around 30min. During this time, we managed almost completely get rid of his neck pain and significantly improved his neck ROM.

Tight Neck – assessment.

Tight neck. Re-assessment.

The next day.

Here are two videos from my treatment with Scott. Scott suffers with tight hamstrings. The tightness in his hamstrings is caused by his previous sports injuries.

Hamstring re-test.

 

I would say his hamstrings flexibility improved by approximately 15-20 degree after our 90min Rolfing Structural Integration session.

Hamstring test.

The below video shows our initial hamstring assessment (the supine hamstring stretch) before our Rolfing treatment.

Boxing personal training – foam sticks for improving speed and agility, focus mitts drills and technical sparring drills.

Category : Articles

Boxing personal training for fitness and self-defence.

Boxing training improves cardiovascular fitness and requires you to use all-round strength. You’ll get more coordinated physically, but also mentally. You need to think, to have a strategy, to be aware of your strong points and weak points, and to assess your opponent’s strengths and weaknesses. When you spar, you need to stop your opponent from using his strengths and try to use your own strengths.

Boxing training will also be beneficial for:

  • fat loss
  • improving muscular endurance
  • improving speed and agility  
  • stress relief
  • ability to self-defence yourself  

Boxing mitts, foam sticks and technical sparring.

We use drills on the pads, foam sticks, strength and conditioning exercises, and, if you want, fully protected technical sparring. 

If you want to try boxing training, strength and conditioning, fat loss, injury rehab, or any other kind of personal training with me, just contact me.

Can Rolfing Structural Integration help to increase punch reach in boxing?

Category : Articles

Let find out how much one Rolfing session helped to increased a Muay Thai champion his punch reach.

I had an interesting Rolfing session with Shaq Davies Lion_Training_pt a Mui Thai fighter today. Shaq has been preparing for his next fight in 4 weeks times and he came to me for treatment complaining about feeling heavy with his arms. We mainly worked on his cervical/ upper thoracic spine, shoulders and arms today. I measured Shaq’s arms reach before and after our Rolfing session and his arms reach improved by almost 1cm in the coronal plane (arms reaching to the side) and by almost 2cm (from 83.5cm to 85.3cm) in the sagittal plane (arms reaching forward).

Here’s the video showing me Rolfing Shaq Davis, 3 x British Muay Thai champ.

I found it very interesting and I would definitely like to do more research on it.

This is how I like to visualise an irritated sciatic nerve

irritated sciatica, nerve inflammation, back pain,
Rolfing & Personal Training in London Jaro Wojciechowski

To visualise an irritated sciatic nerve, I like to use the comparative illustration of an angry cat who’s body is rigid and arched with fur standing on end. I then think of the image of the cat’s owner gently stroking it to calm it down. In a similar way to treat irritated sciatic nerve, a therapist will gently stroke a surrounding an irritated nerve fascia in order to calm the nerve down. When a cat is happy their posture is relaxed and not tense. By freeing up the sciatic nerve from a rigid surrounding fascia, pain can greatly be reduced.


I have more confidence, walking quite literally taller- I am in fact 2cms taller after the sessions – with aches and tightness gone and huge impact on my training.

Rolfing & Personal Training in London Jaro Wojciechowski

“I was recommended by a PT to Jaro, initially for a consultation for hamstring tightness and posture correction. I quickly realised that Jaro is a total professional and was more than happy to undergo a full 10 session therapy series. Jaro explains exactly what he is doing, both the principles and practice. The impact has been extraordinary; friends have commented on the change. I have more confidence, walking quite literally taller- I am in fact 2cms taller after the sessions – with aches and tightness gone and huge impact on my training. Totally recommend this and really looking forward to coming back. On top of everything he works with great humour, making each session a pleasure. Book now!”

Five Stars Google Review From Julie.

Rolfing & Personal Training in London Jaro Wojciechowski

“After numerous acupuncture and osteopath appointments my sciatica continued to stop me living a pain free life. A yoga instructor recommended Rolfing. I embarked on a course of 10 treatments with Jaro. I have been symptom-free ever since. Jaro is a very competent therapist. He is very knowledgeable and remained professional at all times.”
