What is Rolfing?


Rolfing® is a process of physical manipulation and movement education. It is a sophisticated, system designed to reorganize the body and enhance its patterns of shape and movement into a more graceful and efficient relationship with gravity.

Rolfing balances the entire body and increases freedom and ease of movement. It resolves chronic problems and improves function by releasing and realigning the body’s major segments (legs, torso, shoulders, arms, head) which have succumbed to lifelong patterns of tension and holding. To align the body segments, Rolfing systematically organizes the body's soft, connective tissue network. This connective tissue network, also known as the myofascial system, is "the organ of structure" in the body. It supports the skeleton and soft tissues, positions the bones, determines the direction of muscle pulls and of movement, and gives the body its shape.
