"Since I was a child my balance was never great, falling down often even on flat surfaces. I was told by the many different therapists that the falls were due to my legs not being the same in length. 2 years ago I also started to realize that my posture had transformed badly. I had 'turtle neck syndrome' and my shoulders followed this imbalance.
I came across Rolfing and found that it was very gentle compared to my past experiences. After the first session with Dhayang I felt positive changes so I went ahead and committed to the 10 sessions. My posture has since improved tremendously, better than ever before and I am very grateful. I am more aware of my body and movements, experienced much pain relief, increase in flexibility and it has also helped in my music playing"
"Dhayang Toon is a knowledgeable bodyworker, with a good eye for detecting imbalances within the musculoskeletal structure. In the one session that he worked on me the tension in my shoulder was reduced and it also loosened up my breathing. I'd highly recommend Rolfing as a regular "tune-up", especially for people who over work their muscles or experience repetitive strain in their day-to-day activities"
“I’ve had body aches I’ve been trying to resolve for a while now. After just 5 Rolfing treatments I’ve felt positive changes. My breathing and posture have improved and some of pains have disappeared. Most importantly I’ve finally discovered the cause. Dhayang as a Rolfer is patient in listening to your concerns and meticulous in addressing each of them. He has helped create an awareness in the workings of my body as a whole, which facilitates the healing process. I would recommend Rolfing with Dhayang for a more integrated form of treatment."
"My first Rolfing session was very intense and focused on the upper body structure. by the end of the session I could feel and see the step change improvement in my posture and shoulder position.
I spend long hours sitting at work and Rolfing will definitely be beneficial in helping me avoid back pain in the future."
"I have been suffering from Fibromyalgia for 4 yrs now and a major concern is stiffness especially around the upper half of the body. I tried Rolfing once and experienced a significant improvement especially around the shoulders. The treatment itself was painless and soothing. Highly recommend it."
"A client of mine spoke highly of Dhayang and how the sessions with him sorted out his back pain once and for all. I took note because, at the time, I was experiencing lots of general aches n pains, the worst of which was plantar fasciitis - I decided I’d try Rolfing with Dhayang in the hope of alleviating the pain.
I was genuinely amazed when, immediately after the first session, I could walk with a lot more ease. By the end of the second session the pain was gone! I also had much less overall aches and felt as if my posture had improved. The sessions are gentle and incredibly relaxing yet achieve long lasting results - thoroughly recommended!"

"I went to see Dhayang Toon for a Rolfing session after being introduced to him by a fellow rolfer, Amy Tan. I injured my left shoulder a year or so ago and although the muscle healed well, I did not have full range of motion in the shoulder. This restricted the kind of exercises I could do in the gym as well as which positions I could sleep in. It also meant that I was aware of a tightness in my shoulder all the time.
I saw Dhayang for two sessions to work on improving the situation in November 2014 and I am happy to report that not only do I now have full range of motion back in the affected shoulder, but the effects of the two sessions has lasted and there has been no need for follow up treatments."
"I can highly recommend Dhayang’s Rolfing sessions!"
Having no prior knowledge or experience with Rolfing, I was pretty much a skeptic. However after the 4th session with Dhayang:
1) I noticed my chest was opened making it easier for me to breathe
2) Uplift from the core of my body, causing me to look and feel taller
3) Downright better posture
I strongly recommend Rolfing to all professional individuals who spend their days slaving in front of a desktop."

"I have been having issues with my back and knees due to a fall some time ago and a friend of mine advised me to give Rolfing a try. After the first session, I was convinced as I immediately felt the positive effects and thus signed a 10 session series package straight away! After Dhayang worked on my ribcage, I have been able to take full deep breaths as opposed to always being short of breath. In addition to that my posture has improved and my backaches have reduced tremendously. I truly recommend everyone to give Rolfing a go as it is highly effective!"

"I have been living with lower back pain for a while now. My pain gets worse when I have to sit for long hours at a time. At night I can hardly sleep due to my back ache. I spend most nights constantly shifting in my bed, which leads to poor quality sleep. I have tried physical therapy, massage, acupuncture and chiropractic. But these methods provide temporary relief and did not help with my problem.
After a recent long distance flight my lower back ache got worst, so I decided to give Rolfing a try. I was amazed by the results of my first session with Dhayang. My lower back stopped aching, my posture is straighter and my movement more graceful. Combining Rolfng with appropriate strengthening activities, I am once again pain-free. Minor aches do tend to surface at times but I now know how to deal with them thanks to Dhayang's instruction and guidance."

"Sessions with Dhayang allowed me to recalibrate my relationship with stress. The work opened up doorways to imagine, and subsequently, live an internally oriented, deliberate life- one less controlled by external factors. Gentle and steady, Dhayang possesses a keen drive to support his clients as they are."

"My girl is a gymnast as well as ballerina. I brought her for Physiotherapy and acupuncture when she suffered from body aches in the past. 'Rolfing' came in her life upon a friend's recommendation recently as she still experienced tension in the upper body. She felt really sad and discouraged as she wasn't able to show nice and smooth body movements during dance due to these limitations which she encountered .. She loves to dance.
Dhayang's work is exquisite and unique. After just one session, I found her body structure back in alignment immediately. She felt that her body aches and tension previously experienced gradually released and disappeared with each session she meets 'Dhayang KoKo'. She can't wait for her next session. I believe Dhayang is an incredible healer and Rolfer. He altered my girl's body structure for the better and she is now able to perform better on carpet and stage. I would highly recommend Dhayang as his effort really work on my girl."

"I had a few Rolfing sessions with Dhayang and though there were not many, I was well aware that after the sessions there were changes to my physical structure. With this innate body awareness I experienced less pain in my lower back, I was standing taller and felt alot stronger. I would highly recommend Dhayang to anyone seeking to improve their pain without the use of drugs."

"The changes I experienced after each session of the Ten Series with Dhayang were significant and incremental. As odd as it sounds, standing upright and walking now feels 'effortless', as if all my limbs have fallen into its rightful place, and my weight is now perfectly balanced across both legs. My feet feels grounded yet my upper body feels free from any encumbrances and tension. All of these changes carried through into my pilates workout and even rock climbing. There were certain moves that I used to stuggle with but could now execute - it's as if my body has a newfound flexibility. I highly recommend going thru the Ten Series with Dhayang to personally experience the difference that it will bring to your body."
"I have stiff shoulder, weak lower back and always having short breath. Sometimes, I even can't sit or stand straight for long hours. I have tried massage and chiropractic but it’s only provided a temporary relief. During my first session with Dhayang, I can feel the subtle energy flowing into my body and it brings sort of a peace to my body. Very quickly my breathing has improved. My congested nose cleared up immediately. Standing up I sense more weight and well balance on both my feet. Most important, the first session has brought me awareness towards my own body. Dhayang is a very gifted healer. I am looking forward to my session next time I travel back to my hometown. Definitely, recommend Dhayang to others! "

"Dhayang is a very intuitive bodyworker with a balanced palpation technique that allowed me to gain a more integrated structure. With an eye for imbalances , he was able to identify “obscure” areas that were part of the problem , which ultimately helped me feel more integrated. I highly recommend Dhayang to those looking for “fine-tuning” as well as more involved structural integration bodywork."
"I decided to give Rolfing a try to address my “limp” while running – I had no pain, no injury and all the scans indicated there were no injuries, tears, fractures etc; in fact my doctor commented that my muscles look good. It was indeed baffling but I think even more astonishing was that Dhayang has been able to help me free restrictions, tightness on some of my did-not-realize-problem areas (back, chest, neck) in 1-2 focused sessions. I stand up and walk better now; we’re still working on the hips and “limp” but we’re getting there. A weakness, restriction or tightness in one area is not isolated and I believe by working on some of these other areas will eventually help with my hips and “limp”.

"I was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism in Dec 2016. I have read about the relationship of this illness with emotional well being and lung capacity on breathing. I came to know Rolfing through a shop advertisement and later contacted Dhayang.
I immediately signed up for 10 sessions after my 1st session, as the improvement and changes can be felt immediately. Throughout these 10 sessions, besides better posture from my spine and footing, one of the most prominent change after rolfing is my breathing capacity and how each of my ribs are now moving when I breathe.
Before rolfing, during normal breathing, I have short breath and my lung hardly expand. Now not only my lower rib cage and diaphragm moves a lot outwardly when inhale, i can see both my lungs and my chest expand with ease.
I tested this improved breathing during my swimming sessions. Now i can swim 8-10laps without having to rest. I hope to continue this breathing advantage for my hyperthyroidism too. Im blessed to have come to dhayang."

I visited Dhayang upon a friend's recommendation and didn't know what Rolfing is about. Dhayang is very professional. He takes time to look, feel and understand where my pain was. The session was literally pain free (I half expected it to be like a massage but it was not). I felt my body start to realign correctly after the first session. My pain level had greatly reduced. From a level of 7-8 out of 10, I would say my pain level is now down to 1 or 2. I am so grateful to have encountered Rolfing and Dhayang's practise.

"I have experienced many types of bodyworks in the past (raindrop therapy, reiki energy healing, sound healing, pressel massage, osteopathy, Emmett technique, physiotherapy, acupressure, tui na) before but Rolfing is simply amazing.
I can feel the energy moving when Dhayang hold the points, not where he is holding but elsewhere. When he is working on my legs for example, I could feel my nose is clearing or a gushing water flowing thru my eyes and cheeks, tingling in my elbow and 4th & 5th finger. I think Dhayang is a gifted healer because, he would hold until the points where the gushing flow finished then only move on to another point. I know it's finished flowing because I can feel it, it seems that he felt it too.
I look forward to my sessions because I can't wait for my body to tell me about my own body (if you know what I mean). Today I learnt that, if Dhayang hold those points if I feel anything (gushing water, tingling, pain, stuck) in other parts of my body, it means there is weakness or tightness in that area. Left and right side of the body, same holding points but different sensation at different parts of the body is experienced. Rolfing is unbelievable. "
"I have been suffering from lower back pain for more than 3 years. My pain get worse when i am driving for long distance. I have tried chiropractic and physical therapy, but this method doesn't provide permanent relief. Recently, a chiropractor have recommend me looking for rolfing as it can help on lower back pain.
1st of all, i have never heard about rolfing. But after having my 1st session, i can feel the result is awesome.
My spine posture was greatly improved and i'm getting taller. Now i don't need to purposely straighten up my spine when walking or standing. Besides, lower back pain is more relief compared as before.
I can highly recommend Dhayang’s Rolfing sessions. This technique sure benefit for lower back pain patient!"

"It was my lack of flexibility that brought me to Dhayang in September 2016. I was fit and strong yet I had rigidity and stiffness especially in my back, shoulders and hips. My initial aim was purely to gain fluidity and lightness. What Rolfing would do and how it would help me, I honestly had no idea. The good things I heard about it were from my readings and a friend who had sought Dhayang’s help a few years earlier. I decided to give it go but I wasn’t sure if it would “jive” with me.
So here’s what happened at the first session: My body was so surprised to feel a burst of change that it urged me to come back for more, hence my signing up for the package of 10. My banker’s brain meanwhile ran a mental cost-benefit analysis and, weighed the pros and cons, and its response was the opposite of my body’s but I ignored its pleas to just walk away and not return!
I went to see Dhayang over a period of four months for the ten sessions. What I found impressive is how Rolfing affected me emotionally (although its physical benefits are evident too). I started off with issues that, I thought, were purely physical yet what I found at the end was a (much, much) relaxed, gentler and “softer” me. My breathing too became deeper and slower. I suppose this is the fluidity and lightness I was looking for. It’s much less about being able to do front/ side splits, or back bends, or headstands, and much more about the calm within which Dhayang helped me gain."
