Basic 10 series Review
In the first 3 sessions the Rolfer will be working on opening the breath by creating space and resilience in the structure. As client begins to expand his/her breathing, the tissues become more oxygenated and thus become healthier and easier to change.
As the entire weight and balance of the body is resting on our feet, many symptoms in the back and neck is caused by misalignment and distortion in the feet and ankle.
The Rolfer will work on differentiating layers in the torso beginning to establish a midline in the side plane of the body. This would allow the shoulder girdle and the pelvic girdle to move freely and separately and yet related to each other.

Integration - Sessions 8-10
The integration hours is about relationships: between structure and function, core and sleeve, extrinsic/intrinsic, inside/outside, horizontal/vertical, up/down, being and doing. As a result, the body structure would be one complete interrelating whole being.
