What's Rolfing®? Is it massage therapy? Is it like chiropractic care? Is it physical therapy?  More than fifty years ago, Dr. Rolf recognized that the body is inherently a system of seamless networks of tissues rather than a collection of separate parts. These connective tissues surround, support and penetrate all of the muscles, bones, nerves and organs. Rolfing® Structural Integration (SI) works on this web-like complex of connective tissues to release, realign and balance the whole body, thus potentially resolving discomfort, reducing compensations and alleviating pain. Rolfing® SI aims to restore flexibility, revitalize your energy and leave you feeling more comfortable in your body.

Essentially, the Rolfing process enables the body to regain the natural integrity of its form, thus enhancing postural efficiency and your freedom of movement.

Most clients come to me with issues arising from repetitive stress and strain, low back pain, hip and knee pain, upper back and neck discomfort, injuries from accidents or physical training and the desire to reach a higher potential in whatever physical activity they choose.

Crossfit athletes, yogis, swimmers, skiers, dancers of all levels and ages seek out Rolfing to take their somatic pursuits to the next level.

People suffering from chronic pain have also reported some relief with greater ability to manage and in some cases eliminate their pain altogether.

"This is the gospel of Rolfing®: When the body gets working appropriately, the force of gravity can flow through. Then, spontaneously, the body heals itself."
