Benefits of Rolfing

Improve Posture

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.

Ease Tensions

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.

Injury Prevention

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?

Bottom line

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.
