Rolfing® is a body therapy of hands on manipulation and education designed to improve whole body alignment, balance, and flexibility. Rolfing addresses the connective tissues of the musculoskeletal system. Like a continuous web; muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, organs, and bones seamlessly attach to each other.
Rolfing® seeks to return these myofascial relationships to their natural order and integrity. Rolfing aims to restore normal range of motion to motion restricted tissues with mobilization techniques and practical structural strategies.
Is Rolfing® For You?
Rolfing® is a holistic technique in that changes in structure can impact the whole person, physically, emotionally and energetically. Ultimately, each client's individual experience plays a central role in Rolfing's transformational aspects.
With Rolf Movement Integration the Rolfer helps clients become aware of their inhibiting movement patterns and teaches them how to change them. The Rolfing® releases these patterns through manipulation as they manifest in the client's structure.
Rolfing is as concerned with how people experience and use their bodies in their daily lives as with their structural organization in gravity. This unique blend of both, the functional and structural aspects of Rolfing, is a distinctive feature of the therapy.
By freeing and re-shaping the connective tissue Rolfing brings the body into a better relationship with gravity. It’s the only modality that recognizes gravity as an active force toward optimum health.
