WHAT IS ROLFING®?rolfing detail brustkorb

>> When the body gets working appropriately, the force of gravity can flow through. Then, spontaneously, the body heals itself. << from Rolfing & Physical Reality



Rolfing® - Structural Integration was created by the american biochemist Ida P. Rolf Ph.D. The goal of this method is the integration of structure, the reorganisation of the various body parts - hence a realignment of the body in gravity. Rolfing® is not designed to ease the symptoms in the first place, but to help the body find its natural way in dealing with gravity so that the symptoms are cutoff their roots.

For that to happen Ida Rolf has designed a series of 10 sessions, which are thematically build upon each other. Within the series Rolfing® deals with daily activities and themes like walking, breathing, the contact to the ground, stability in standing and the awareness and perception within the body and its relationship to the space.

Rolfing® is designed to align the body in gravity so that a person can make a better use of its potential and its possibilities. Rolfing® helps you to be aware of your own body image so you can release constricted movement patterns and can extend your own spectrum of possible movements. Above all, one of the goals of Rolfing® is to increase the personal, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. It is a way to get in contact with your body and to be in harmony with it.
