Rolfing® Structural Integration is a form of hands-on therapy and movement education aimed at freeing the body from limitations and pain. One of the primary goals of Rolfing is to realign the various segments of the body--head, ribcage, pelvis, legs--so that you no longer need to struggle to stand tall or sit up straight.
Rolfing® accomplishes this largely by systematically organizing the body’s connective tissue network of ligaments, tendons and fascia (the coverings of bones, muscles, and organs). Rolfing also employs movement education to help clients integrate and maintain the changes that occur through the hands-on work.
The results can be profound. Rolfing’s potential benefits include better posture, enhanced body awareness, pain relief, and improved athletic performance. But in a broader sense, Rolfing helps restore the body’s natural freedom and balance. It lets you remember what it’s like to move with ease, grace, and pleasure; to feel more at ease in your own skin. <
