The intuitive and structured approached to rolfing, with you and your body at the centre of the process, means that it can help people suffering from a variety of symptoms. By creating an environment for change and methodically working through all the body’s systems, we bring to the forefront things which may have been hidden.
(pain, migraines, respiratory conditions)
Chronic conditions can be symptoms of other underlying problems or habits, physical or emotion. It is essential to identify and deal with the underlying causes, as simply alleviating the pain associated with a complaint is likely to be temporary.
(accidents, physiological and emotion events, conflict)
Events shape our physical and emotional systems, when an event is unresolved its effect can leave a lasting and negative impact. Often displaying with parts of the body becoming frozen, this is trauma. Rolfings approach to trauma is to work on the physical parts of the body which have become frozen, helping clients to process the event, and recover.
(tiredness, potential, power, strength, performance)
Wellness is created by having sufficient time and space in the body where we are free from pain and not exhausted from daily activities. Rolfing offers the opportunity to identify patterns which lead to exhaustion and understand how to move in a better direction.
(injury, post-natal recovery)
To reduce pain in the short term, the body can create new and unhelpful patterns, both at the site of injury and elsewhere in the body. These compensations can last a lifetime and create further complaints. Rolfing offers an opportunity to understand our conditions and their connections, in order to recover.
(depression, anxiety, psychosis, disorders)
Aspects of mental health manifest in the body. With dialogue, touch and time, addressing physical manifestations and the mental health issues they may be associated with, creates the conditions for recovery.
(length, realignment, grace)
A single movement is made up of many muscles working together, catching a ball involves both the extension of the arm and the preparation back, shoulder, calves, chest and stomach to support that movement. Posture is no different, we use both the conscious and subconscious movement efficiently to achieve it. Rolfing is unique in its approach to educating both these systems.
