What is the Rolf Method?
The Rolf Method of Structural Integration was introduced over fifty years ago by Dr. Ida P. Rolf. The Rolf Method successfully returns the body to a state of balance with a primary focus on manipulating the muscular and connective tissues of the body into proper alignment for peak performance and health, including
prevention and recovery from injury and stress reduction.
A State of Balance
Unlike forms of deep tissue massage, Rolfing returns the body to a state of balance by manipulating and increasing the elasticity of connective tissues that wrap around every bone and muscle, moving the body into the correct alignment for optimum posture and functioning.
How does it help?
Research has shown many physical and emotional health benefits from Rolfing including:
- Easing chronic pain
- Reducing stress, increasing feelings of relaxation and well-being
- Improving and aligning posture
- Creating a more efficient use of muscles
- Increases elasticity in the connective tissue that wraps all muscle and bone.
