Rolfing is an original and scientifically validated system of body restructuring and movement education. It releases the body's segments — legs, torso, arms, etc. — from lifelong patterns of tension and bracing and permits gravity to realign them. This is accomplished through gentle manipulation of the body's fascia, the highly malleable connective tissue matrix that envelops the muscles and gives the body its shape.
Of all the forces affecting the body, gravity is the most powerful. Body misalignment under the influence of gravity results in chronic strain, decreased vitality, and impaired biological and psychological functioning. By freeing the restrictions that pull the body out of alignment, Rolfing allows the musculoskeletal architecture to reorder itself into a more appropriate arrangement in gravity. When joints are properly aligned, the body expends less energy to hold itself upright and move around. This energy efficiency is generally experienced as a higher level of awareness and vitality. Aches and pains subside, movement becomes easier, and overall functioning tends to improve.
People of all ages and occupations come to Rolfing for help with neck pain, back problems, impaired mobility and other difficulties that arise from structural imbalances. Others seek to improve appearance or athletic performance, or to enhance personal development toward a fuller realization of their potential. Rolfing results in a feeling of wholeness and wellbeing. People who have been Rolfed stand taller and move more freely.
