Dr. Eric Maklan, Certified Rolfer
Rolfing Chattanooga offers Rolfing® Structural Integration and Integrative Bodywork. The therapies offered at Rolfing Chattanooga are far more than a feel good massage. The goal of Dr. Eric Maklan’s work is none less than a total transformation of his clients relationship to their bodies. Core therapies offered are the Rolfing Structural Integration 10-series, Integrative Bodywork, and Deep Tissue Massage.
Dr. Maklan is fascinated by the connection between the structure and function of complex systems. He earned his Ph.D. from the University of California for his studies in biochemistry and molecular biology.
Dr. Maklan was first exposed to the transformational power of Rolfing Structural Integration following a rock climbing injury. Allopathic medicine could not provide lasting relieve or prevent what had become routine and debilitating flareups of pain. Rolfing Structural Integration led Eric to a rapid and complete recovery.
Dr. Maklan trained at the prestigious Rolf Institute of Structural Integration and became a core therapist at Midline Integrative Bodywork, a highly regarded clinic in Santa Cruz, California.
Dr. Maklan continuously hones his skill set with continuing education and has specialized in the treatment of neural syndromes such as carpel tunnel, sciatic pain, whiplash and neck pain. He holds certificates in Dermo-Neural Modulation and Treatment of Common Injury. Additionally, Eric is certified in the administration of Ayurvedic treatment.
Dr. Maklan is an avid practitioner of yoga and meditation and is strongly influenced by his own exploration of the body and mind. He combines scientific rigor with a refined intuition to best access and aid in his client’s well-being.

When I started, I could stand for only a few minutes before my sciatica pain became intolerable in my left leg. Today I am walking about 5000 steps a day and easily doing my errands.

Eric is both highly skilled and intuitive. He has a deep understanding of anatomy and how pain in one place can be connected elsewhere.
– Amber, Licensed Acupuncturist
The surgeon did an excellent job of holding my bones with titanium plates but gave me a poor prognosis. Eric confidently manipulated my ankle and aligned my crooked body structure so well that I could walk much better after the very first session. I was amazed!
– Suresh, Professor
Working with Dr. Maklan was an interactive process which resulted in a more open, relaxed, pain-free body. I still feel the effects now.
