Pop your bubble!

 Do you love the moments when the bubble pops and you feel that you are really alive? It's like life opens its arms and offers you a hug. Everything is suddenly present, intimate... and it's in that fragility that you see, hear and know.
YOU ARE HERE AND NOW... being with yourself and part of everything around you at the same time.

These methods significantly improve and change a person's physical structure, posture and body movement. During the therapy, muscle tension and stiffness are released. Pain or discomfort in the physical body is a warning sign suggesting that we can change something in our lives for the better.

ROLFING is a method that very effectively and sensitively changes the habitual stereotypes of body movement, so that warning signals are no longer needed and the pain disappears. When the body returns to balance, the load on the joints and soft tissues is reduced. People naturally assume a relaxed, upright posture after completing Rolfing and gain greater flexibility and ease of movement.

HELLER THERAPY is based on the theory that ligaments and tendons lose cohesion when stressed. Through the special methods of this therapy, muscle tension and stiffness are released, washing away the problems that caused them.

Heller Therapy / Rolftherapy helps with:
Chronic headaches * Chronic spinal and back pain * Post-traumatic conditions * Ineffective posture * Muscle tension * Neck stiffness * Limited mobility * Insomnia * Emotional stress * Body stiffness from long hours at the computer * And many other problems.

"When a client comes to me, I'm excited because I know it's someone who feels responsible for their transformation and is ready to discover the way they think and perceive themselves and their body. Through my hands, which have been touching others on a deep level for over 30 years, I speak to my clients' bones, fascia, ligaments, energy, emotional anatomy and muscle memory."
Erik Iversen


"Erik is a brilliant and catalytic facilitator, highly recommend his work. "Erik’s presence is a delight, very walking each other home. This isn’t just an event—it can be a discovery blueprint for lifelong delight.
Kathlynn Hendricks, Author and founder of The Foundation for Conscious Living
Thanks a lot, Eric! After the Somatomy training I feel a deep sense of embodiment, presence and curiosity. I appreciated your cues to relax, slow down, be playful and really listen.
Daniela, 5Rhythms teacher
After completing my first Somatomy I thought “Oh I learned a lot! I have new tools.” I got so much education but this education was just my mind learning. Now I realize I have not embodied any of what I learned. Finally my body has started to learn. This for me is body intelligence. After completing nine first and second Modules of five sessions I remember Erik saying this is about experiencing your body sensations and your movement functions. Now I’ve decided to join every time I can. I am re-developing my relationship to myself and my body after 60 years. I’ve found way to conserve my dancing body forever.
Masayo, 5Rhythms teacher
