Benefits of Rolfing™
Rolfing structural integration has the ability to dramatically alter a person's posture and structure. Athletes, dancers, children, business professionals, and people from all walks of life have benefited from Rolfing. People seek Rolfing as a way to ease pain and chronic stress, and improve performance in their professional and daily activities. It's estimated that more than 1 million people have received Rolfing work worldwide.
Research has demonstrated that Rolfing creates more efficient use of muscles, allowing the body to conserve energy, and creates more economical and refined patterns of movement. It also shows that Rolfing significantly reduces chronic stress as the body structure becomes more integrated. For example, a study showed that Rolfing significantly reduced the spinal curvature of subjects with lordosis (sway back); it also showed that Rolfing enhances neurological functioning.
