Rolfing™ Structural Integration
Rolfing gives you optimal alignment in gravity and better relationships between parts of the body. Being less of a target of gravity means improved posture with more grace, effortless and energy efficient movement. While pain relief isn't a specific aim of Rolfing, many life-time aches and pains vanish as alignment improves.
Of Grace and Gravity
"One individual may experience his losing fight with gravity as a sharp pain in the back, another is the unflattering contour, another as a constant fatigue, yet another as an unrelenting threatening environment. Those over 40 may call it old age; yet all this signals may be pointing to a single problem so prominent in their own structures and the structures of others that it has been ignored; they are off balanced; they are at war with gravity."
