Rolfing was created by a woman named Ida Rolf and is sometimes referred to as structural integration. The benefits can be life changing to people who are in a chronic state of being. This can be caused by repetitive stress, injuries, or surgeries where scar tissue has developed even subtly over the years. These subtle changes may go unnoticed until they become chronic, manifesting as migraines or lower back pain and overall discomfort. Insomnia and restless leg syndrome sufferers will also benefit from Rolfing.
  • THE 10 SERIES OF ROLFING

    The body as a whole shortens over time while holding the mental memories of trauma and injuries, including emotional stress. The best cathartic release is the 10 Series of Rolfing.




    SESSION ONE


    Starting with the larger regions of the body to discover thresholds of intensity and find out your comfort level of pressure.

    SESSION TWO


    The Feet & Legs will be the main focus, in order to sustain structure there must be a strong stable support from beneath. This session will concentrate on releasing the muscular restrictions of the lower limbs. While also creating awareness of newly formed posture for walking.

    SESSION THREE


    This session marks the end of the first stage of integration to now begin with the “Lateral Line” which attempts to incorporate session 1 & 2 in order to achieve balance. The Lateral Line consists of where the Ear, Shoulder, Hip, Knee, and Ankle all line up when standing.

    SESSION FOUR


    The emphasis will now change from the outer, broader structures into the deeper “Core” portions of the body. The term Core describes the area from the pelvis all the way up to and including the head. This session will attempt to create order from the Ankle all the way up to the Pelvis. Intending to provide Lift to the central part of the body.

    SESSION FIVE


    This session will build upon the work of Session Four and the initial work to lengthen the Core. Moving upwards within the body to free up holding patterns around the Pelvis, Rib Cage, and Abdominal Muscles. By reorganizing and creating space inside these regions, the organs and deep abdominal muscles will reassert themselves.

    SESSION SIX


    This session is the start of what may be called the central theme of Rolfing to “Free the Hips & Legs”.  Sessions Four & Five were important in creating lift and balance to the front of the body as we now move to the back of the body to balance this out.

     

  • THE 10 SERIES OF ROLFING




    SESSION SEVEN


    Order is now brought to the head, neck and shoulders. Culminating from all the work in the legs, pelvis and back we can now turn to emphasize the “Top” to release restrictions and tension. Earlier sessions have already started to address these restrictions and now we attempt to organize them fully.

     

  • THE 10 SERIES OF ROLFING




    SESSIONS EIGHT, NINE & TEN


    Balance and Integration of what we have learned from the previous sessions in order to incorporate the newfound freedom you will be experiencing. Discovering problem areas with an emphasis on the lateral or medial lines that need further attention. Three to Five follow up sessions may be beneficial after this point allowing for a few months to pause as you get used to your new self.
