How does a typical Rolfing session go?
After a thorough intake, the session begins with evaluating your structure and movement patterns while standing. Most clients receive the work in their underclothes, but other options are available. While you’re lying on a physical therapy table, the Rolfer uses hands, fingers, and arms to apply slow, specific pressure to different parts of your body. The goal: To begin easing restrictions in the connective tissue and realign the body. You may be asked to make small, synchronized movements or to “breath into the area” being worked. Sessions often close with some form of movement education, such as developing supported sitting posture, refining the walking gait, or working on specific stretches.
