Is Rolfing® Painful?

All GAIN no pain!

Rolfing has a reputation of being extremely aggressive deep pressure and a very intense experience.  Due to advancements in research Rolfing has taken a more gentle approach. Just like when you get a massage, you can ALWAYS request lighter or deeper pressure.  Communication is key. On going through out our session I will be checking in with you to make sure you are not experiencing pain and I encourage you as the client to let me know if there is anything I can do to increase your comfort.

How Often should I Book

Ultimately it is up to you when and how often you receive body work but here is a guide line for optimality. .

If you are Going through your 1st 10 series: it is optimal that you space your sessions out once every 2 weeks or less. Yet after our initial assessment, depending on your situation I might have a more specific plan for you. 

 If you have already been through a 10 series: then its a lot more flexible, but again I will assess your situation and suggest a good plan. 

If you are seeking body work for continued self care, or you are trying to solve a pain problem, we together can come up with a good plan for what your goals are.

Why 10 sessions

The Rolf 10 series was created by Dr Ida Rolf who studied the body's relationship to gravity. In this treatment the concept is that we don't know for sure what with in us is manifesting pain or movement problems so we address everything leaving no stone unturned in a strategically planned "recipe" each session builds upon the one before it. Each territory of the body is addressed in one session 

#1: Shoulder and pelvic girdle, diaphragm and forearms 

#2: Knees, Lower legs and feet

#3: Ribcage and Lumbar spine (lateral line) 

#4: Pelvic floor and Adductors (inside line) 

#5: Deep hip flexors, Quads, abdominal wall. (front line)

#6: Tail bone, sacrum, spine,hamstrings (back line)

#7: Neck, jaw, cranium 

Sessions 8 and 9 address either the upper or the lower half of the body using movement strategies, and session 10 integrates the top to the bottom half.

Which Session Should I Pick?

If this is your first session, I would advise a longer session to unsure a thorough Intake process. However, Things to consider when booking a session are,

  4. Are you considering bodywork as an ongoing self-care regimen or rather to address a specific issue?

What treatment is right for me?

10 Series: This is a recipe of "organizing" the body designed by Doctor Ida Rolf.  Each session targets a specific zone of posture to help you access a natural sens of balance, and strength through ease.  Since each session is assigned a specific area of focus, it takes a lot of the guess work out for me, so a shorter session would be sufficient. 

Tune up: In this session I use a series of assessment tests to figure out what may be causing your current discomfort.  Using sophisticated techniques, I do my best to un-wind compensation patterns and ease tension/stress. Depending on your situation you may need a few sessions before your discomfort is resolved. I will be able to asses that in our first session. Longer sessions are better suited for this approach.

Self Rolfing:  This technique teaches you sophisticated body mechanics that you can utilize in all your activities. you will learn how to cultivate mindful awareness and your body's natural ability to self correct.
