Takami Kamata, Rolfing®Frankfurt



I was certified as a Rolfer and Rolf Movement Practitioner in 2011 and became an Advanced Rolfer in 2017.  Before becoming a Rolfer, I was a researcher, patent officer, cabin attendant, Yoga teacher and mother. Aside from my main occupations, alternative medicines have been always my interests.  All of my family members including me rely on my treatments and especially my daughter has never needed to see a conventional doctor for ill-health since she was born in 2000.

I am a determined bodyworker, studying various options ranging from homeopathy and energy work to Rolfing.  After studying many modalities, I am convinced Rolfing is to be my very basis to integrate what I have learned so far. To return to a physical body often makes things simple and easy. 


The founder Dr. Ida Rolf (1896-1979), one of the first female PhD as a biochemist in the world, stood firm in her position as a scientist and called Rolfing* as pure science. (*Originally she named Rolfing as Structural Integration and did not like the name Rolfing but the latter became too popular.)  It was the era when homeopathic remedies or herbs were replaced with petroleum-derived medicines and universities to study homeopathy disappeared by the influence of Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research.  In such era, Dr. Rolf studied homeopathy with enthusiasm for her clients and for her own.  When I knew Dr. Rolf's interests were very similar to mine, I was delighted by this coincidence.


Once Dr. Rolf said Rolfing was similar to shamanism. This is my position as a Rolfer; I accompany you with piety to help you return to your own nature.  I use varieties of technique to align your body and remove your discomfort, but Rolfing is not my treatment. This is your educational process to regain your awareness: cultivating your inner awareness to go along with yourself in your environment. Through years of my studying and experiencing alternative medicines, I am confident true improvement will not be achieved without our individual inner awareness.  I will assist you with our teamwork so that you will meet your blueprint of the body-mind-soul wellness often suppressed and distorted in life. 


During the ten series, some of you might experience emotional catastrophe or trauma release.  These are the outburst of repressed energy embedded in connective tissue.  Since our body is the container of the soul, the repressed energy is to find the way out. In such cases Somatic Experiencing, energy work (SourcePoint Therapy, Jikiden Reiki), or a homeopathic consultation can alter the session.  


My concern is always how to meet you through my supportive touch—with varieties of soft, deep, intensive or distant—according to your needs. Respecting your edge, I choose what seems to be most appropriate to you; some of you may need intensive anatomical adjustments, some of you removal of visceral tension, some of you nervous settlement, some of you trauma release, and some of you more energetic flow, etc.  


I’m looking forward to working with you for your overall wellness.
