Can children receive Rolfing?
\Absolutely! Rolfing can be extremely effective with children due to the rapid rate at which their bodies break down and rebuild (as we get older this process slows down). Consequently, profound structural changes can occur with minimal intervention. Rolfing can assist children and adolescents with growing pains, scoliosis, poor posture, leg imbalances such as knock-knees or pigeon-toes, and headaches, among others. Work on children is gentle, and always within the comfort level of the child and parents.
Sessions for children are usually shorter than for adults, and the Ten-Series is usually not received until adolescence. Rolfing can also help children who have had accidents, or seem to be unusually detached from others and their surroundings.
