Dr Ida Rolf developed a "recipe" known as the Ten-Series™. The goal is to help get you out of pain quickly and move easier without overstimulating you.
Each session invites a new possibility of moving as it relates to your specific design; compounded affects occur with consecutive session. You will learn new ways of integrating with every 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. We work around the ribs, shoulders, hips and feet allowing easier movement. We work towards specific goals as your body map gets clearer.
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 hips to the head.
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 sure your body map is clear and that you know how to move with it. 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. Most clients return for a tune up session in approximately 3 months. Remember that Rolf Movement is also a great way to quickly integrate and also gives you tools to use at home.
