What is it?
What is Rolfing Therapy?
A therapeutic touch technique
Rolfing is a type of massage therapy, as well as a system of soft tissue manipulation and movement education.
Addresses the whole body
Rolfing focuses specifically on manipulating the myofascial system to organize the entire body within gravity, ease strain patterns, and correct posture.
The Principles of Rolfing Therapy
Address the Whole Body
We do not just treat the area in question, we look at the whole body and its involvement in the symptoms you are experiencing.
Work with Gravity
Rolfing focuses on the fascial system to create a neutral system that works with gravity, rather than against it.
Rolfing addresses the body’s position in space, posture, and gait. By utilizing support, stability, and lift, the body is realigned.
Rolfing aims to achieve optimal function, encouraging one to pursue healthy activities and a positive attitude, while preventing the development of health concerns
