Rolfing is the original brand of Structural Integration, named for it’s developer, Dr. Ida Rolf, developed through the 1960s and 1970s. Rolfing helps correct structural and postural imbalance, in movement and gravity through a time-tested method of bodywork. ONLY people who have attended and been Certified by the Dr. Rolf Institute are legally allowed to call themselves “Certified Rolfers.” If a massage therapist tells you that they had some Rolfing training in massage school, they are wrong.
Originally Rolfing was a Series of 10 sessions, but over time some of the Advanced Rolfers have modified a few sessions to accommodate the many changes in our lives. So now we have 10-13 sessions for the Series, depending on your particular needs.
In addition to postural changes, Rolfing also helps people recover quickly from injuries sustained in auto accidents, sports injuries, and from repetitive use. For targeted Rolfing sessions for pain relief or injury recover, that are NOT part of the Series, we offer “stand alone sessions.” Once you’ve completed the Series, if you find that you want more sessions to work on specific issues, we call those “Tune-Ups.”
