This is what you can expect from Rolfing, the highly respected process of soft tissue manipulation that balances and realigns your body by releasing tension and strain.

How Does Rolfing Work?

Rolfing works systematically on the body’s whole network of connective tissue to reshape the tissues that give the body its shape and determine the limits of its movement. It is a two way process: the Rolfer uses physical pressure to loosen the restrictions in the connective tissue. The client works with the Rolfer, using breath and movement as tools to facilitate change.

Each session builds on the one before. The structural changes of early sessions form the basis of the integrative work of the later sessions.

What does a session of Rolfing feel like?

Warmth, pressure, a lengthening or stretching of tissue... the work evokes a wide spectrum of sensations. Some parts of the Rolfing process may feel intense, the feeling of tensions being released from the body. The client is in charge of how intense the session becomes. A session is a gift to yourself, something to look forward to.

Rolfing is for everyone, for people of all ages and all walks of life — especially those seeking to live a healthy lifestyle.
