Rolfing in a nutshell
Rolfing® is a system of soft tissue manipulation and movement education, that organizes the whole body in gravity. It has been around for many years. it is a form of alternative medicine originally developed by Ida Rolf (1896–1979) as Structural Integration.
This form of bodywork affects the body’s posture and structure by manipulating the myofascial system (connective tissue). Often considered a "deep-tissue" approach, that works with all the layers of the body to ease strain patterns, in the entire system.
Research has demonstrated that Rolfing creates more efficient muscle use, allows the body to conserve energy, and creates more economical and refined patterns of movement. It has also been shown to significantly reduce chronic stress, reduce spinal curvature associated with lordosis, kyphosis, scoliosis... and enhance neurological functioning.
Through soft tissue manipulation and movement education, Rolfers affect body posture and structure over the long-term. Unlike massage, which often focuses on relaxation and relief of muscle discomfort, Rolfing is aimed at improving body alignment and functioning.
Why 10 Rolfing sessions?
Rolfing is usually done over the course of 10 sessions (“the 10-series”) plus three movement optional. Each session focuses on a specific goal and area of the body. The results are cumulative, and each session builds on the previous one. A minimum of three session commitment is recommended, to decide if it is right for you. The most suitable plan should be discussed at the beginning of the treatment.

We want you to learn from your body, tune in , increase awareness, grow and move on. After your 10 sessions and 3 movement (optional). Ideally you will not received any work for at least 6-9 months.
