‘An effective human being is a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.’
~ Ida Rolf
Rolfing Structural Integration is a unique form of bodywork that systematically works to realign, readjust, reorganize and balance the body in gravity to its most efficient form. I do this by manipulation of the fascia (connective tissue) and reeducation with the client and their body awareness.
Rolfing is a form of holistic bodywork that, through a process of several sessions, allows the body to come back to its natural alignment. If you are experiencing physical pain or with issues such as limited range-of-motion, low back pain, shoulder pain, sciatica, scoliosis, poor posture, migraines, and more Rolfing can be of support to you.
Rolfing enables the body to regain its natural, organized, form-restoring freedom of movement, revitalizing energy, and leaving you feeling more comfortable, relaxed and pain free!
Rolfing is different from most forms of bodywork because it focuses on improving the organization of the entire structure (often visible as better posture), rather than focusing on a place that hurts, feels stiff, etc. Although massage is relaxing, you may find the same area bothering you again shortly after you leave the office. This is because the area that hurts is often a compensatory or secondary issue. For example, you may have neck pain because you’re not getting the proper support from your feet, or because your pelvis is askew, or because your shoulders are rounding forward (or all of these). Until we balance the entire structure, that neck is going to stay strained trying to keep your head upright. Focusing where it hurts goes after the symptom, not the problem.
I work with a wide-range of clients in my private practice, males and females ages ranging from 9 to 95 years old. I work with Crossfitters, yogis, dancers, musicians, casually active folks, & many others in a variety of categories. I feel fortunate to be able to work with such a wide diversity of clients.
The foundation of Rolfing is the 10-Series, a series of 10 sessions, each with its own goal & anatomical territory that creates a strong, stable foundation of structural support. You can read more on the Rolfing 10-Series here.
I also work with clients outside of the context of the 10-Series. The ways I work with my clients varies but can be a few focused sessions to help my clients get out of pain, some clients choose to come every 4-6 weeks on a more consistent tune-up maintenance, & others come when they can with the desire to feel even better in their body. I work with my clients individually to develop a plan of care that best supports you.
