Rolfing® is performed in 10 sessions following a protocol to align and balance your body. Each session is progressive and builds upon the one before and leads into the one ahead. However, let's discuss this, should doing 10 sessions be an issue for you.
Rolfing is for everyone young and old. You only need a desire to want to feel better in your body.
I begin each session with a brief assessment and then we have a session of gentle hands on therapy.
You will arrive for a brief check in with me and this is done in your normal street or office attire. You will then get changed in privacy into your Rolfing attire, which for men is usually their briefs or sport shorts. For women, this is usually their underwear or sports bra and sport shorts. I then assess you in your Rolfing attire so I can tailor the session to you.
Let's discuss how I can help you. If you're still unsure, try one session. This will give you a pretty good idea of what the work is about and what it feels like. Generally, most people know whether Rolfing will benefit them by the third session. This session provides a good stopping point for people who decide that Rolfing is not for them.
The goals of Rolfing and Massage is different. Massage is usually about relaxation. Rolfing aims for a longer term and overall improvement in your body's alignment and function. Rolfing brings about relaxation through efficient posture and movement in your everyday life doing your everyday routines.
Rolfing is an amazing journey of discovery, self awareness and well being. You can read and share some of my client's journeys here.
Rolfing is named after American biochemist, Dr Ida P Rolf who developed the method in the 1950s. She concluded that lasting improvement in wellbeing was through organising a person's body structure in relation to gravity. Her insight was that gravity is an organising element. We have an optimal, natural body alignment and when this alignment is lost, it causes stress that can manifest in the body's connective tissues, fascia, causing physical discomfort.
