Rolfing with Elias is a new manual therapy offered at 10655 S. Hale Ave., inside of Relaxation Station. Owned by Certified Rolfer Elias Limberopolous, the technique has been gaining traction as a highly effective therapy to ease pain and increase body alignment.
“I’ve been practicing a highly effective from of manual therapy known as Rolfing Structural Integration since 2017 in Beverly, Logan Square, and Bourbonnais,” Limberopolous said. “My dedication is to help clients experience sustainable pain relief, body alignment, quality of movement, and improvement to their overall sense of well-being. The technique has the ability to dramatically alter a person’s posture and structure resolving years of pain, tension, stress, and discomfort.”
The manual therapy technique also helps ease sports injuries, sciatica, chronic headaches, TMJ, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndromes, disc issues, and more, according to Limberopolous.
“Families, athletes, healthcare workers, and people from all walks of life can benefit from Rolfing. People see it as a way to ease pain and chronic stress, and improve performance in their professional and daily activities. The unique premises and methods of this treatment are more often effective in sustainably reducing pain and dysfunction when years of other approaches have failed.”
The Rolfing technique seeks to reorganize the connective tissues of the body called fascia; think of it like a web that connects your entire body together. It’s a hands-on technique utilizing gentle sustained pressure over a series of ideally 10 sessions, each of which builds upon the previous to help the person’s specific issue.
Limberopolous wanted to open a practice in Beverly/Morgan Park because he says it feels like home here.
“I grew up on the South Side and working in the community keeps me connected to my roots,” he said. “The people are friendly, family-oriented and down-to-earth.”
His location inside Relaxation Station offers easy access to the Metra and I-57, which is ideal for patients traveling from northwest Indiana or the southwest suburbs.
