Rolfing is a method of structural integration focused to bring the physical structure of the body into an efficient relationship with the perpendicular alignment of the body gravity. The technique involves stretches and moving the connective tissue to lengthen and balance the body along its natural vertical axis.. Fascia is a form of connective tissue that surrounds and separates every structure and cell in the body.
Your body has a natural vertical axis which you will feel your best if you are able to keep your body in alignment as well as making sure that your muscles do not ache. Finding your body gravity is possible through a method called Rolfing. This bodywork method is so named because it was designed by Ida Rolf. It was designed to work through the fascia in order to return you to your right and correct balance. The fascia is a connective tissue which is responsible for separating all of the structures and cells in the body. When these tissues are massaged against the vertical access it allows them to extend and improve the natural balance of your body. This will allow your body to look and feel more in a state of health.
This form of bodywork is not possible to be accomplished through just one session. This is why the usual progression of Rolfing is over 10 sessions which allows you to go from light pressure to deep tissue pressure. The whole point of the sessions will be to naturally and effectively bring your body back to its natural state of equilibrium. This is possible when the connective tissues are manipulated in the right ways. Rolfing is a great way to help those who have been a victim of a traumatic accident to restore their health back to original levels. This is also a very good treatment method for those who have suffered from emotional problems. You can get the help you need with Rolfing.
