Rolfing

Hey!

I am currently in-between my third and fourth Rolfing sessions, and I thought it might be helpful to some potential Rolfing clients out there to share some some of my thoughts and impressions. The most important thing is to find the "right" Rolfer for you--I am a skeptic, and there is no place for "New Age" quackery in my life. My Rolfer is a scientific fellow who approaches his craft from a strictly bio-mechanical perspective. If you desire, you can undoubtedly find a Rolfer who can inject a little mysticism into your therapy!

I suffer(ed) from fatigue, chronic lower-back pain and pain in-between my scapulae; after a look at my posture and stride, my Rolfer said that it was obvious to him WHY I had this pain: my pelvis was shifted forward, as was my right shoulder. If you consider the configuration of our bodies and the way every action has (or should have) and equal and opposite reaction, the concept of Rolfing makes perfect sense. The free movement of my trunk and limbs has been altered through tissue contraction/constriction, throwing off the perfectly balanced arrangement that nature originally provided--look at a mobile carefully, and see what happens when you push up on one of the counter-weights!

Going into the fourth session, my lower back pain is not present, and I have already noticed an increase in my flexibility (I have been stretching religiously every night for 30 minutes, and have noticed a spike of advancement since having begun Rolfing threapy). This skeptic is convinced that Rolfing is a viable technique! I enjoy more freedom of movement and ease of movement where it had not existed for as long as I can recall. Fellow skeptics feel free to email!
