Rolfing

Whatís Rolfing?

Rolfing is a hands on process of realigning the body in gravity. Feeling high or low, balanced or not, can depend on how we are relating to our environment and to gravity.

Rolfing intends to free up old holding patterns in the tissue and in our selves, promoting balance, grace, freedom of movement, grounding, centredness. A core feeling of who and how we are.

Rolfing is as concerned with how people use their bodies as with their structural organisation to gravity. This philosophy reflects the commitment of Rolfing to view the human system as a whole.

How does Rolfing work?

By freeing up the fascia, or connective tissue, the body begins to regain it's natural movement, balance and harmony. Connective tissue is the stuff that holds us together. It binds muscles to bones, as tendons, bones to bones as ligaments. It forms the surface layers of organs and is wrapped around and invested through all the organs, tissues and muscles of the body.

Connective tissue also manages the strain we put through the body. As that strain is unbalanced, so the tissue thickens and shortens, bracing the body to handle the effects of overuse and trauma.

Rolfing works with the connective tissue to release those holding patterns, be it an old injury site, an often repeated strain as in RSI, or an emotional holding pattern like "the weight of the world on the shoulders". By separating muscles that have become glued together, restoring natural joint range, and reeducating movement, the body comes back towards alignment in gravity.

Who can benefit from Rolfing?

Almost anyone, and at any age, can discover the benefits of Rolling.

Athletes, dancers, musicians, people from all walks of life come to Rolfing to find relief from pain and limitation and to improve their daily function and awareness.

Chronic pain sufferers, or those people in physically or emotionally demanding situations often find a new and more effective way of relating, moving and being in their environment.

Do you feel down, or up? Heavy; or light? High, or low? This is the language of our relationship to gravity. Rolling aims for ease in that relationship. Our physical body can actually lift when at ease in gravity.
