Rolfing™ Structural Integration is a "recipe" known as the Ten-Series™. The goal is to help you relieve pain and move easier without overstimulating you.
Each session frees a new region of your body as it relates to your specific design; a compounded affect occurs with each consecutive session. Something new should integrate each visit.
Sessions 1-3 are considered the "sleeve" or superficial sessions. Even if your issue is deep, you cannot move freely if your outermost shell is tight. . Work here is typically accomplished around the ribs, shoulders, hips and feet. We work your goals and begin to develop new ones.
Sessions 4-7 are the "core" sessions. Core simply means a deeper affected change. Think of the core less as an anatomical place and more as a functional way to keep us from falling down under a demand. We seek to lengthen the spine from the head through the sacrum.
Sessions 7-10+ are considered "integration" sessions. While integration is a key component to every session, full integration is like the icing on the cake. You should leave this series feeling amazing and you may even have a new outlook on life. We make certain all areas of the body are mapped and talking to each other. Once completed, the wisdom of the Rolfing Ten Series will drive and support the body with health for years to come.
After completion of the 10-Series, you should notice feeling lighter or just moving easier. Over time you may feel as if old habits are starting to creep back. Or new symptoms are coming up. We can address anything with as little as 1-3 sessions. Clients typically return for a tune up session between 3-6 months. Remember that Rolf Movement is also a great way to quickly integrate anything you feel could move a little better.
