George J. Smyth

Certified Rolfer

George Smyth, Certified Advanced Rolfer, graduated from the Pennsylvania School of Muscle Therapy, the Rolf Institute, and studied under Dr. John Ray. He is a member of the Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals, the Guild for Structural Integration, the Rolf Institute, and maintains a private practice in deep tissue therapy in Marietta, PA; and Atlantic City - Ocean City, NJ.

Smyth was a client before becoming a Rolfer. After a whiplash injury caused him chronic pain, he went to see a Rolfer in Philadelphia. "After the first session," Smyth said, "I knew there were changes taking place." At the time, he was working in the nuclear power field, but was so impressed with the results, he decided to become a Rolfer. He attended the Rolf Institute in Boulder, Colo., became certified in 2 1/2 years, and opened his own practice in 1988.
