Benefits of Rolfing

People come to Rolfing for a wide variety of reasons. Many of the most common complaints such as back pain, repetitive strain injury, lack of mobility, headaches and general lack of energy are often the result of poor structural organisation and respond very well to Rolfing.

However, anyone can enjoy the benefits of Rolfing, whether they are in pain or not and some people come to Rolfing just because they “don’t feel right”. Moreover, preventative maintenance is the best form of therapy. People from nine months to ninety years have experienced the many benefits of Rolfing.

Rolfing is not a symptom treatment that addresses right where the problem is, but rather a holistic approach with the main objective to create cohesion and balance in the body, so it takes less effort to stand upright and walk in a healthier way. It is good for a wide variety of problems and is well known for long-lasting results. Anyone from office workers to musicians, stay-at-home parents to professional athletes, tradespeople to dancers and performers can benefit from Rolfing because its sessions are tailored to each client’s needs.

It is possible to understand how Rolfing could achieve such a range of benefits when you realize all these benefits have their roots in releasing soft tissue stress. The body’s soft tissue, specifically fascia is present throughout the body. When the fascia releases and re-aligns pain leaves and the body starts to perform better.
