Rolfing Massage Therapy and Structural Integration Bodywork
Restore Vitality to Your Body!
Rolfing* is used by professional and Olympic athletes as well as classical and modern dancers to restore vitality and function to damaged tissue and as a method of injury prevention. In addition to the direct hands-on manipulation, Rolfing provides the individual with movement and behavioral education to lessen trauma associated with chronic and acute musculoskeletal complaints.
Rolfing for Better Posture and Balance
Rolfing is a system of deep-tissue bodywork that brings the body into a new alignment and better balance, greater flexibility and improved physical abilities. Rolfing works in a series of 10 sessions to release the fibrous and thickened connective tissue (myofascial system) that influences alignment of the skeletal structure. By releasing the deep soft-tissue of the body, a person realizes benefits including relief of chronic pain, ease of movement, improved posture and a a sense of emotional well being.
Rolfing for Injury and Trauma
By working with the strain patterns formed in the connective tissue of the body (fascia or myofascial system), Rolfing directly addresses the issue of compensations the human structure makes to the adaptations required when compensating for injuries and trauma. These alterations form around areas of injury leaving deep impressions in the layers of fascial tissue influencing skeletal alignment, joint and muscle mobility. It is important to note, Rolfiing is a process that works by taking the most superficial layers of tissue first and then working deeper as the body surrenders and softens to the touch. By working in this manner, pain and discomfort is eliminated and the tissue of the client’s body is encouraged to change.
