HOW DOES ROLFING WORK?
From a Rolfing perspective, strain in the fascia causes misalignment, pain, and lack of ease in the body. This is because as the body compensates around a strain in the fascia, this in turn creates additional strains that require further compensation patterns. In this way a small local injury can significantly impact the whole body.
At this point it is not enough to simply treat the original local strain in isolation. Instead Rolfing Structural Integration works to systematically unwind the strain patterns in the fascia and bring them back into balance. When the fascial restrictions in the whole body are re-balanced the result is a more resilient, integrated and vital human experience. The side effect of this is often resolution of the compensation patterns, local injury and pain.
