Modalities: Rolfing

There are so many different ways to deal with physical pain available.  The important thing to remember is that not everything is going to work for everyone.  However, if it’s on the market, the likelihood is that it has worked for at least a few people. It’s important to stay open minded and be willing to try new things in your pursuit of a pain free life.

Rolfing is a form of structural integration.  The idea is that by manipulation of soft tissue,  your body can be realigned.  In this particular form of manipulation, movements are used to break up adhesions in the fascia that may be restricting skeletal muscle movement and thus causing pain.

Developed by Ida P. Rolf, Rolfing has been in the works since the 1930’s and The Rolf Institute of Structural Integration has been around since the 1970’s.   

Rolfing is very deep work and is generally performed over a series of sessions aimed at normalizing body function.
