Book A Session

Rolfing is the name for the body of work that Dr. Ida P. Rolf originally developed and named Postural Release. It is now known internationally as Structural Integration. Rolfing is an effective hands-on therapy that can improve your health and well being, alleviate limiting patterns of physical strain and imbalance and increase your awareness of your body.

Whether you have tried everything else and haven’t resolved the strain in your body or you are looking to improve your quality of life – we can help. We have helped hundreds of people who thought they had no options return to the activities they love feeling younger, more energized and performing better than ever.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Rolfing is an interactive inquiry and intervention into the factors influencing your present experience in your body. We take the time to thoroughly listen to your story, observe your body in motion and interpret what’s happening under our hands throughout each session to provide you with an adaptable approach which will create long-lasting results.

The goals of Rolfing are initially and most effectively addressed through a series of 8-12 sessions. Each session completes the work of the previous and prepares the body for the next.

THERAPEUTIC BENEFITS

Everyone comes to Rolfing with a personal story and body history. Maybe your back hurts and you can’t lift your children anymore, or your knee is keeping you from running. Maybe office work has given you carpal tunnel pain or cutting hair has made your neck immobile. Maybe life has become stressful and you need relief.

Perhaps you have chronic or acute pain and have not found improvement through other modalities. Or perhaps you sense that you have more potential than you are currently tapping into. Still others of us are ready to make broad life changes and wonder if Rolfing can help us take that next step. Rolfing can lead to profound changes in your physical structure, your perception of yourself, your self-confidence and your sense of your own potential.

If you can imagine how it feels to live in a fluid, light, balanced body, free of pain, stiffness and chronic stress, at ease with itself and the gravitational field, then you will understand the purpose of Rolfing.

IDA P. ROLF, PH D.

A TYPICAL ROLFING SESSION

Each session begins with a verbal check-in. We want to hear how you are experiencing your body. We’ll inquire about how you have felt since our last session, on how the work settled into your system and how your awareness has changed.

We then match what we’ve heard from you with what we see in a movement assessment. We’ll have you sit, stand and walk while we observe how your body moves through space, how you perceive that movement (i.e. proprioception), and whether there are areas that need specific attention.

Next, we relate what we’ve heard and seen with what we feel while contacting your body. Each session is typically comprised of 40-50 minutes of hands-on work. We use sophisticated, listening touch while asking for movements that evoke changes in the way your nervous system is patterning movement and perception. The last few minutes are spent helping you integrate the changes that have occurred throughout the session.
