Rolfing is one of the most amazing, highly effective forms of bodywork which reorganizes the connective tissues, called fascia, that permeate the entire body. It works on this web-like complex of connective tissues to release, realign and balance the whole body, potentially resolving discomfort, reducing compensations and alleviating pain. Rolfing aims to restore flexibility, revitalize your energy and leave you feeling more comfortable in your body.
Essentially, Rolfing enables the body to regain the natural integrity of its form, enhancing postural efficiency and your freedom of movement.
What are the Benefits of Rolfing®?
Rolfing has the ability to dramatically alter a person's posture and structure resolving years of pain, tension, stress and discomfort. The genius of the work rests on the insight that the body is more at ease and functions most effectively and coordinated when its structure is balanced in gravity.
Athletes, families, healthcare workers, business professionals, performing artists and people from all walks of life have benefited from Rolfing. People seek Rolfing as a way to ease pain and chronic stress and improve performance in their professional and daily activities. Those dissatisfied with other pain, mobility and exercise treatments often consult a Rolfer™ like Elias, whose unique premises and methods are often more effective in sustainably reducing pain and dysfunction when years of other approaches have failed.
Research has demonstrated that Rolfing creates a more efficient use of the muscles, allows the body to conserve energy, and creates more economical and refined patterns of movement. Research also shows that Rolfing significantly reduces chronic stress and changes in the body structure. For example, a study showed that Rolfing significantly reduced the spinal curvature of subjects with lordosis (sway back); it also showed that Rolfing enhances neurological functioning.
