Rolfing ® is the name coined for the original system of body work developed by Dr. Ida P. Rolf. It is also known as Structural Integration. Rolfing has an unequaled and unprecedented ability to dramatically alter a person’s posture and structure. By accessing connective tissue, Rolfers are able to better organize one’s body to rest in gravity, rather than resist it. Professional athletes, dancers, children, business people and people from all walks of life have benefited from Rolfing. People seek Rolfing as a way to ease pain and chronic stress, and improve performance in their professional and daily activities. It’s estimated that more than one million people have received Rolfing work.
The purpose of Rolfing is to allow the body to be fluid, light, balanced, free of chronic pain and stiffness, and at ease with itself in the gravitational field. In essence, Rolfing seeks recovery of the graceful and unrestricted movement we enjoyed in youth – before years of chronic stress, injuries, poor posture or inactivity created patterns of restriction and compensation in our bodies. Rolfing can impact the whole person, physically, emotionally, and energetically.
Those who have received the work have reported this and more:
- Relief of chronic pain
