is a system of soft tissue manipulation designed to bring the entire body into alignment. Rolfing works to reduce pain
and correct posture by manually lengthening the tissue in your body. Your Rolfer also helps you become aware of your walking, standing, and sitting patterns and what you as the client can do to help speed up your recovery process.
Pain and tension are often the symptoms of years of injury and and progressive misalignment throughout the body. By addressing the larger structural patterns and compensations at work, Rolfing is a sustainable solution for lasting change and comfort. Different than massage, Rolfing
utilizes a series of sessions to work through the entire body to support proper alignment. In addition to treating pain and injury, Rolfing is an excellent solution for anyone seeking improved posture
and a greater sense of ease in their body.
