What is Rolfing?

Rolfing or Structural Integration was created by Dr. Ida P. Rolf, and deals with Postural Re-alignment, Movement and Balance in people’s bodies. She believed that most physical problems and pain comes from chronically tight or stiffened muscles and connective tissue, related to a person’s posture. With this in mind, she created a series of 10 sessions of deep connective tissue massage and stretching to systematically re-align people’s posture. When their bodies become straighter and more erect, pain disappears, and they feel better. It could be considered as“Engineering For The Body”.


Benefits of Rolfing

The benefits can include:

  1. Total alleviation or a substantial decrease in pain levels
  2. Increased flexibility and joint mobility in areas such as hips, neck, back and shoulders
  3. Better posture, balance, co-ordination, movement and freedom
  4. Major release of tension and anxiety
  5. Sports performance improvement
  6. Ability to handle emotional and psychological problems improves
  7. It is considered to take 10 to 15 years off your “Biological Clock”
