Rolﬁng SI has the ability to alter a person’s posture by adjusting imbalances in the myofascial tissue so that the body can reorganize itself with less effort. Our bodies get the opportunity to make use of gravity — being supported by it, rather than feeling pulled down. Observing the body from one side during the Rolﬁng 10-Series, the ears, shoulders, pelvis, knees, and ankles will increasingly align themselves along this vertical line. The body’s structure becomes balanced.
Rolﬁng SI can resolve discomfort, release tension and alleviate pain by restoring adequate fascial tone. Strain and discomfort in the body resulting from tensional imbalances and movement impairments can be relieved through Rolﬁng®. This is how back pain, painful tension in the neck and shoulders, headaches, as well as hip, knee, and foot discomfort can be alleviated and resolved; and, these improvements are mostly long-lasting.
Rolﬁng SI aims to restore ﬂexibility, revitalise your energy and leave you feeling more comfortable in your body. Rolﬁng can resolve unhealthy patterns in the body’s fascial network. After Rolﬁng SI, fascia and muscle layers glide more freely on each other and joint mobility is enhanced. As a result, mobility and ﬂexibility are promoted throughout the body. Range of motion increases, and movement becomes smoother and more graceful.
Athletes, dancers and people from all walks of life have beneﬁted from Rolﬁng SI. People seek Rolﬁng SI as a way to ease pain and chronic stress, and improve performance in their professional and daily activities.
Research has demonstrated that Rolﬁng SI creates a more efﬁcient use of the muscles, allows the body to conserve energy, and creates more economical and reﬁned patterns of movement.
Rolﬁng SI focuses on enhancing thoracic mobility and allowing each breath to spread throughout the entire body.
Body and mind cannot be separate. This becomes clear over and over during Rolﬁng SI sessions. Freer breathing and more opening of the rib cage also implies more openness toward our environment and other people. An increased feeling of stability and support through the ground provides enhanced sense of security and centeredness. Rolﬁng SI clients report more energy overall, more balance in difﬁcult situations, more self-assurance, and an ability to display their inner selves more conﬁdently.
Clients re-learn how to feel and experience their own bodies through Rolﬁng SI. For example, they become aware of questions that they might never have asked themselves before: How do I breathe? How do I stand? How do I sit? How do I walk? When do I pull up my shoulders? How does my body react when I’m stressed?
Every client’s experience of Rolfing is unique, most people notice that after only a few Rolfing sessions they are more ﬂexible, they can breathe more freely and have less strain.
