Rolfing Definition

Rolfing® Structural Integration: Rolfing is used to treat tissue and enhance structure and health within them. It us considered to be a bodywork technique that improves balance and flexibility through deep manipulation of rigid muscles, bones, and joints; intended to relieve stress and improve energy.The founder of Rolfing was Dr. Ida Rolf, a biochemist, who studied the human body and how it responds to gravity. Rolfers use their fingers, knuckles, and elbows to work with the fascia, which is the connective tissue that surrounds each muscle and interconnects all of the other internal parts of the body. The goal of Rolfing is to gradually lengthen and reposition your muscles. Over a series of ten Rolfing sessions release occurs in specific areas in the body in addition to realigning the body's fascia. At the end of this series, your body is expected to continue to change and adapt towards an easier relationship with gravity.
