When I went to see Willy, I was in a lot of pain [pain all over] from a lower back injury I'd caused myself. To make matters worse, I sit in front of my PC all day and after the injury, sitting was the most uncomfortable thing I could do; this effecting not just my physicality but my ability to earn a living. I'd been to 3 doctors, a kinesiologist, traditional massage and had been in physical therapy for a few weeks and nothing was working.
I was in a car accident in 2006 and tried everything suggested by the professionals: Physical therapy (which included massage), chiropractic manipulation, stretching, traction, accupuncture... I was not getting the relief I needed. My Naturopathic physician suggested Rolfing and referred me to William Kaye. Rolfing provided the release in my body that was necessary to allow the other, more conventional care to be effective. I also experienced an unexpected bonus - liberation from somatic trauma from my late teens. Willy Kaye is kind, flexible, professional and courteous. I highly recommend him to others.

About me

After 35 years of practice in New York City, I still love my work and the change it can breathe into the lives of my clients.

When I first heard of Rolfing, I was a 21 year old art student in Berkeley California with a motorcycle and enough hair on my head to significantly dampen the impact of any 2×4 that headed in the direction of my skull. I was looking forward to improved, posture, flexibility and the chance to try out the most interesting new thing that was happening at the time (1972). A few weeks before my first session, I lost control of my motorcycle on the highway and luckily survived with a minor shoulder injury.

After recovering from the motorcycle accident I had even more motivation to try out Rolfing. Right from the start the sessions began to dissolve the remaining feelings of trauma and fear I had from the accident . I as my tissues lengthened and eased and my awareness of my body grew, I began to feel a sense of physical confidence and strength that I had never had before.

The changes I felt were enriching and liberating in ways I could not have anticipated. The changes in my physical structure effected my energy, my emotions, my sense of self, and ultimately my way of seeing things around me. Looking back now I can see that what began as a recovery process eventually lead me to my life’s work.

By the end of the first ten sessions I was more vertical, flexible and had more physical confidence than I had ever had and I knew I had found my life’s work. I spent the next few years working as a counselor, teacher and massage therapist to ready myself for training at the Rolf Institute. My original training in 1976-1977 was with Dr. Rolf and Peter Levine and Emmet Hutchins. I have been an assistant teacher in Basic Rolfing trainings and have mentored beginning Rolfers throughout my career.

My art school education was the foundation of my ability to see and understand of the human body in all its variety and expression. The artists who have contributed immeasurably to my understanding include Honore Daumier, August Rodin, and Otto Frei.
