The science of Rolfing®
spans from the knowledge of gravity to the profound understanding
of three dimensional anatomy. Many events pull us off our line like
chronic pain, repetition of movement patterns, emotional distress,
and trauma. Rolfing is rooted deeply in anatomical language Rolfing
involves experiencing the release from muscular patterns that no
longer serve us and gives us more energy.
Rolfing is designed as a series of ten sessions where each session
is focused on a particular part of the body. It is a systematic
approach to aligning your structure; each session builds upon the
last and prepares the body for the next.
Sessions one through three are the opening of the
superficial layers of the fascia or the “sleeve sessions.”
These sessions lengthen and start to organize the superficial layers.
Sessions four through seven address the deeper fascia.
These sessions follow the central axis of the body from the feet
to the center of the head and they ask the body to lengthen and
initiate movement from within the center of the structure.
Sessions eight through ten are the integrative sessions.
These sessions are about connection and communication for the structure
as a whole.
Movement education is introduced into the ten series
at different times to help add a new sense of movement with the
new organization and to encourage long-term change.

After the Ten-Series or The Post 10 Series
Rolfing can be an important way of maintaining
a body and regular "tune ups" is common (anywhere from
monthly to quarterly). This is particularly true among athletes,
heavy computer users, adults with scoliosis and other high stress
A post ten series is generally three to five sessions that focus
on the client's specific goals.
Many clients complete a ten-series, get good results,
and never feel the need for another session and other clients only
call when they have experienced a trauma and are in pain.
