I am please to answer to your personal question : [email protected]
Is Rolfing Painful?
Not any more! Rolfing Technique has this old 70’s reputation to be painful as a “No pain No gain type”.
The good news is we are in 2019, and a lot of things have changed since then as well as the rolfing technique.
Nevertheless, rolfing stigma of being painful remains present at the expense of people who would benefit from this technique.
“The fear of being hurt makes me paralyze to try”It’s totally understandable to have pain and even worse during the rolfing session, where is the logic?
If a friend of yours than you met told you about his rolfing experience and his first words are “it’s hurt like hell” and didn’t even mention his shoulder issue were fixed after trying multiple other modalities. The bottom line is, he did not have a good rolfing experience. In fact, Rolfing is not about hurting a person , it is about unwind and reshaping the body to a better posture in relation to your personal sensitivity and emotional stage
What can be expected from going through the 10 sessions?
How the work is experienced is completely unique to each individual. Chronic pain can be reduced and many times goes away completely. Stillness in the tissue created by holding patterns or repeated movements is relieved, giving a new pattern of movement in the body. Better posture and pain relief are a result culminating in an improved experience of daily life.
What to wear?
Please BRING OR WEAR appropriate clothing. Because Rolfing is traditionally done with the client in his or her underwear; however, you may wear gym attire (athletic shorts for men, shorts and a sports bra for women) if you feel more comfortable.
Please do not wear clothing that is bulky or that restricts movement. Men: please ensure that your shorts are above the knee – long, baggy shorts make identifying structural imbalances difficult. Woman: avoid yoga/pilate legging.
You are welcome to change once you arrive at my practice.
