Is Rolfing Painful

Rolfing is more permeant than Chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractors focus on subluxations. A chiropractic adjustment aligns the bones joint to joint. Rolfers us their hands and forearms not elbows to work with the soft tissue layers from the skin down into the bone and everything in between. The focus in Rolfing is to balance the soft tissue matrix so the system finds its ideal balance and harmony with Gravity.

Rolfing is not the same as massage. Rolfers have a completely different intention, goal and purpose while working with the body than massage therapists. Rolfers Structurally Integrate the whole system so that the body can find more natural, ideal balance, movement and support.  Rolfers are the first group to talk about, work with and study Fascia. The Fascia Blaster, Active Release, Myofascial Release, all came after Rolfing Structural Integration became popular. Rolfing and Structural Integration is still the leading edge in fascial, nerve, and proprioception research and still the leading edge in integrative bodywork.  

Is Rolfing  just Deep Massage 

is rolfing like chiropractic 

A Rolfer is trained to see patterns of organization within the body. Inefficient movement patterns, emotional trauma, physical injuries cause the body to change form and gain compensation patterns that are unorganized or not integrated which makes the structure fight gravity. These random patterns drain vital energy, and over time can lead to chronic pain, joint stiffness, tiredness and general aging.  

For a Rolfer our eyes and what we see when we watch you move, walk, and be are just as if not more important than what we feel with our hands.

Poor posture puts the body at war with gravity and gravity will win every time.

Rolfing is not as painful as deep tissue massage or work by a physical therapist.  Rolfing has an old outdated reputation of being extremely painful. But it doesn't have to be. A skilled Rolfing Practitioner will elegantly work with the layer of fascia that is available. Sometimes that is a deep layer, sometimes its a superficial layer. When the proper layer is addressed the process is not painful but extremely relaxing and soothing.
