Rolfing is posture and movement therapy for pain relief (neck and shoulder pain, lower back pain, scoliosis, sciatic nerve pain etc.). Receiving a Rolfing session is like having someone do yoga for you, with dramatic improvements in flexibility once you’re done.
Rolfing looks like a cross between physical therapy and massage. A Rolfing practitioner applies slow, deep stretching around joints, lengthening the shortened, bunched tissues and freeing up stuck, frozen tissues so that your body moves in the way it was meant to.
You’ll often see people define Rolfing as “deeper-than-deep-tissue massage,” but Rolfing actually works with an entirely different system in the body – fascia, or connective tissue.
Fascia is what holds your muscles and bones in place and gives your body shape, so Rolfing gently realigns your body by adjusting the tension in your fascia which indirectly pulls your bones back into place. It’s like having chiropractic therapy for your muscles.
