People of all ages can use Rolfing to help with neck pain, back problems, impaired mobility and other difficulties resulting from chronic tension patterns.
Other benefits from Rolfing can include increased althletic/artistic performance, improved appearance, and increased physical vitality. This increased energy allows for growth in other areas of clients lives.
Professional athletes, dancers, musicians, business people, children (above 9 years in my practice), 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 1 million people worldwide have received Rolfing work.*
People who have been Rolfed stand with more stability and less strain, breathe deeper and more easily, move with a more natural grace and develop a wider range of physical expression.
Research has demonstrated that Rolfing creates a more efficient use of the muscles, allows the body to conserve energy, and creates more economical and refined patterns of movement. Research also shows that Rolfing significantly reduces chronic stress and changes in the body structure.*
Rolfing techniques are applied to suit your particular circumstances. If you are concerned about your suitability for Rolfing, we can discuss how to proceed.
