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 a vertical line. The body’s structure becomes balanced.
Rolﬁng SI can release tension and stress on the body structures by restoring adequate fascial tone and optimal alignment. Tension in the back, neck, shoulders, as well as hip, knees and feet can be alleviated and these can be long-lasting improvements.
Rolﬁng SI aims to restore ﬂexibility 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 can glide more freely on each other and joint mobility be enhanced. As a result, mobility and ﬂexibility are promoted throughout the body. Range of motion can increase, and movement can become 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 tensions and chronic stress, and improve performance in their professional and daily activities.
Research has demonstrated that Rolﬁng SI can create a more efﬁcient use of the muscles, allow the body to conserve energy, and create 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, 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.
