Rolfing® theory and
practice will be discussed along with your health history and any
concerns that you might have. We will discuss your goals and expectations
for the work.
A postural and movement evaluation is done before every session
in the clothing you chose to wear. –see what to wear
Throughout the session, you’ll get a chance
to walk around, evaluate your experience, note changes, and provide
input for continuing the process. Neck and back work is included
at the end of every session to balance and integrate the work into
Time is also dedicated to movement education and training in the
form of body awareness techniques, stretching and toning exercises,
ergonomic considerations, and healthy sitting, standing, and walking
The amount of time between sessions varies and is determined on
an individual basis. I normally recommend no less then 5days and
no more then one month between sessions.
Appointments, Policies &
Weekday and Saturday appointments are available. Although sessions
are approximately an hour, it is best to allow a full hour and fifteen
minutes for each session. If there are time constraints, please
communicate these at the beginning of the session.
Canceling or rescheduling
Session time is valuable — yours and mine. I bill in full
for missed appointments or canceling/rescheduling with less than
24 hours notice.
What to Wear?
Most clients receive work in their underwear. Briefs
are preferable to boxers for men; traditional panties and bra work
well for women. If you're not comfortable with this stage of undress,
other options are available.
A pair of loose-fitting shorts, cotton gym shorts, or yoga-type stretchy
shorts, and a sports bra or tank top are other good options.
We can work with a variety of clothing; just
keep the following in mind:
You must be comfortable. Unlike massage, Rolfing requires
you to get up from the table and walk around periodically. Clothing
should not pinch or bind. If you can lie on the table and pull one
knee to your chest without resistance, you’re in good shape.
Clothing should allow us to view and work around your upper legs,
mid-back, and neck.
