Rolfing Massage

ROLFING with EMILY

It’s a common misconception to hear Rolfing and think, “very deep massage” but a better word would be: profound. Rolfing affects the overall posture and alignment through tissue manipulation and movement in a series of appointments.

It is different from massage in that the therapist works to create in the entire body rather than focusing on the muscle that is presenting pain. As the body becomes more aligned, chronic pain can be relieved. Where as traditional massage works more to decrease inflammation, increase blood flow to relieve pain from working out, relieve tension from everyday usage or overuse, and is focused on specific muscles.
To address the entire body, therapy is applied over a series of ten sessions. Each session has a different territory and different goals. This approach is best for chronic widespread pain and improving posture. The series will improve support in feet and legs before affecting higher structures, and helping clients find ways to benefit from freer movement in their daily activities.
In contrast to the whole body ten-series approach, patients can still benefit from a limited number of sessions. A specific area can be addressed in 1 to 3 sessions.
Rolfing sessions tend to be interactive; getting on and off the table to test movement. It’s best received in something comfortable, for example: tank tops, shorts or yoga pants.
