Robert Toporek, a certified Rolf Practitioner, is the author of “The New Book of Baby and Child Massage.” In 1975, Robert began a four year journey studying Rolfing directly with Dr. Ida P. Rolf and her son Dick Demmerle. In 1978, Dr. Rolf chose Robert to implement and manage a project to demonstrate and document the benefits of Rolfing for babies and children. Since then, Robert has continued to expand this work.
Running press encouraged Robert to write “The New Book of Baby and Child Massage,” which is making a difference in how parents worldwide raise their babies and children.
