Rolfing is a technique pioneered by Dr. Ida Rolf that involves manipulating connective tissue in order to release stress within the human body. Rolfing is a physical practice administered by a qualified practitioner with the objective of maximizing individual well being of body and mind.
The primary goal of Rolfing is the improvement of movement, structure, and posture. Any overall lack of well-being that relates to these issues can be responsive to Rolfing. During a session, a client is observed by a qualified practitioner and is asked to stand, walk or sit. The client then lies on a padded table similar to a massage table. The practitioner applies sensitive and precise pressure to specific areas of the body to manipulate the connective tissue.
