As we age, we may find that our mobility suffers. Among the common complaints of aging are decreased range of motion and flexibility, as well as chronic pain and stiffness. Even with a carefully regimented exercise plan, some seniors find that their mobility simply isn’t as good as they would like. Far too often they accept these limitations as a natural consequence of aging when the causes may be issues that are actually easily correctable. For older people looking to regain flexibility and improve their mobility, Rolfing® may provide relief and help restore a healthy vitality to their bodies.
Rolfing is a system of deep-tissue bodywork that brings the body into a new alignment, giving you better balance, greater flexibility and improved mobility. Rolfing works in a series of ten sessions to release the fibrous and thickened connective tissue that influences alignment of the skeletal structure. Rolfing structural integration, unlike traditional massage or physical therapies, specifically addresses the vast system of connective tissue, or fascia, which runs throughout the body. Problems with your fascial system throw your entire body out of alignment, leading to problems with mobility, flexibility and posture, problems which are sometimes mistakenly blamed on aging. Very often, this system gets neglected, and without proper treatment, your body can’t function at optimum performance. Whether you want to know how to fix bad posture, regain mobility or to ensure that your body works and feels its best at any age, Rolfing may be just what you are looking for.
