What is rolfing?

Rolfing® is an original and scientifically validated system of body restructuring and movement education, conceived by Dr. Ida Rolf. By working with the connective tissue through the ten session Rolfing® series, the body is balanced in relationship to itself and within the field of gravity.

It was Dr. Rolf's theory that the cause of human discomfort, both physical and emotional may lie in our internal connective tissue and the relationship it has with the earth's gravitational field.

There is, she argued, an optimal, more natural alignment for each of us – an easier interaction between self and gravity. When this alignment is lost through external factors, it causes internal stress that can result in real discomfort. Prevent or correct the misalignment and you may eliminate or limit the stress. This is at the heart of Rolfing.
