What is Rolfing like?
Sessions range from 60-90 minutes long. In the beginning and end of the session, I will take a few minutes to assess your alignment and movement patterns in standing and walking. For most of the session you will be laying on the table and I will work, applying different amounts of pressure and perhaps asking you for small movements. Rolfing can be very light in contact or deep and intense, but it should not be painful to the point where your body won’t release because it is resisting my input.
Because I need to closely observe how the body moves as well as be able to work deep within the tissues, clients should wear comfortable underwear (preferred and most common) or loose workout clothes (no tight sports bras or spandex). Please do not use body lotion before a session.
I suggest clients not do heavy activity or exercise after a session, in order for their body to process the bodywork most effectively.
