the functioning of organs may be caused, triggered or affected by
poor, compressed, collapsed posture. Realigning our structure can
therefore remove some symptoms.
Rolfing for Me?
People of all ages
have Rolfing, from early childhood to 90 year olds. We are energetic,
living, organic, changing beings. Thus we are capable, through life's
experiences, of creating imbalances, physical pain, emotional pain and
lethargy in our bodies. People come to Rolfing for many and varied reasons.
These include the following:
We almost all have poor posture to some degree. As the body
collapses we get uneven tension in our body. This feels uncomfortable
and puts a lot of stress and strain on joints, nerves and internal organs.
Good posture feels great!

Back, neck, hip, knee, ankle, wrist, shoulder pain can all
be alleviated with Rolfing. Balancing the joints takes away the pain.
Most headaches come from neck and/or shoulder imbalance, which
interferes with blood flow and/or puts pressure on nerves in the neck
and head. You don't have to put up with headache pain from these causes.
emphysema, and panic attacks involve breathing disorders. These conditions,
although varied, all respond well to Rolfing. The balancing of the rib-cage

on them, preventing them from functioning to their optimum. As Rolfing
prevents the breakdown and collapse of the structure of the body, we can

of the body, enabling them to function without stress.

dancers, yoga students and sportspeople have noticed that the increased
flexibility, mobility and fluidity that comes from Rolfing has enhanced
and improved their individual performances.
We are all
emotional beings and just as the physical body demands a certain flow
of fluids and energy, so our emotions demand a flow of energy. Fear stops
the discharge of free flowing emotions, which then become stuck in our
body as tension. Unresolved anger, or grief, can have the same restrictive
effect. Rolfing discharges this pent up emotion. Sometimes this is felt
as it is brought to the surface, to be replaced by an open feeling of
peace and tranquillity.

It is important to know that as your body expands for the baby, tissues
are stretching and migrating into unfamiliar positions. For some women
the pushing out of the abdomen also externally rotates the hips, which
stay rotated after the birth. This means that the hip joints no longer
fully support the spine and the ribcage collapses down, putting strain
on shoulders and neck. For other women the diaphragm might be re-located,
the spine compressed or the pelvis itself becoming unstable. Rolfing will
put you back together, better than before your pregnancy.
Anti-Stress and Sleep Problems

and complaining structures. We have more energy available when we have
balance, relaxation and awareness in our lives.
