Is it Painful?
Rolfing Technique has this old 70’s reputation to be painful as a “No pain No gain type”.
The Good news is, it does not have to be that way anymore. I am working with the client level of comfort applying direct pressure to reset fascia tissue. Clients reported that they felt light and tall and moved with more ease than before or felt energize. I am always working with the client to be close to his comfort level with in mind a soft and deep pressure approach.
The sessions are usually 75 min. spaced about 10 days or more depending on the body condition. Each session started with a posture analysis and client’s feedback from the previous session where I am looking for pattern and restriction in the all body then a hand on work will be done on a table or bench. The Client is actively engaged during the process where standing, walking and coming back on the table is usually asked in order to observe the changes.
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. 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.
You are welcome to change once you arrive at the office.
