    A Rolfer's Story" is the title of a talk to be given April 20 the Emerald Coast Meditation Society. Speaker will be Nanette Savage, who has been doing this practice--manipulation of the body's connective tissue--for 24 years.

    The meeting will start with a 30-minute meditation at 6:30 p.m. at 480 N. Co. Hwy. 393, Santa Rosa Beach, one-half mile north of Hwy. 98. The ECMS is ecumenical and does not follow any religion. There is no charge.

    Savage will tell not only her own story of how she became a Rolfer but also the story of Ida Rolf who invented the practice. She will also talk about some of the lasting results of Rolfing—or why someone might want to be Rolfed. She performs her practice in her Ft. Walton Beach home.

    Rolfing, she says, is “a scientifically validated system of hands-on manipulation of the fascia,” the body's connective tissue. In a sequence of 10 sessions, she moves the fascia “towards the symmetry and balance called for by the architecture of the body.” The purpose is to help recipients achieve greater balance and mobility and relieve stress.

    Savage, a 1992 graduate of the Rolf Institute, has been deeply involved in body work and meditation since earning her B.A. degree in 1984 from the University of Missouri. After receiving certification as a massage therapist, she broadened her understanding of the human body through studies in structural integration (Rolfing). These included courses in anatomy, psychology and kinesiology.

    The evening will conclude with a short guided meditation.

    The ECMS meets on the first and third Thursday of every month except July and August. Anyone who needs meditation instruction should arrive by 6:15.
