Are you struggling to balance? Rolfing can help to improve balance and spatial orientation.
The vestibular system or inner ear, is a sensory system that creates the sense of balance and spatial orientation. It consists of three semi circular canals and otolithes which detect rotational movements and linear accelerations.
Certain common habits have the effect of switching off orientation via the vestibular system, thereby compromising balance and compressing the body.
During a Rolfing session we observe these habits and explore new possibilities. This can also be beneficial to yoga practitioners, dancers, tai-chi practitioners, martial artists and sports practionners who are looking to improve their practices.

I enjoyed watching this video of prima ballerina Polina Semionova balancing so beautifully.
