What is it?
Rolfing SI is a body-oriented method developed by Dr. Ida Rolf that enhances and eases body movements, restores postural balance and encourages a sense of physical well-being. It does this by aligning and integrating the structure of the body with the force of gravity.
Rolfing® will lead an individual to discover a more efficient posture, and how to feel 'centered' along a flexible and adaptable axis. Rolfing will enhance an easeful alignment and improve agility.
How does it work?
Rolfing uses connective tissue manipulation along with movement and perceptual coordination education to achieve results. The traditional process evolves within 10 session with your Rolfer, who works with you on a massage table. One Rolfing session of 70 Euro excl. VAT takes between 60 and 90 minutes.
Along with the ten sessions, there are also movement sessions, where you can more specifically address specific movement patterns or exercises which can benefit your personal needs. Movement sessions for 50 Euro excl. VAT take between 45 and 60 minutes. Movement sessions will be availeable soon.
who is it for?
- Letting go of habits
Our bodies reflect our stories, traumas, view of the world, cultural and physical habits. By using the Rolfing method, we can overcome our limitations. Our perception of the world becomes more holistic and we feel more confident and connected.
- Chronic pain
If you suffer from chronic pain, long term injuries or postural issues, Rolfing is a very good tool to help the body reorganise. Long term chronic issues can be resolved. Positive outcomes have shown with neck- and back problems, sciatica, RSI, plantar fasciitis, migraine, shin splints, fibromyalgia, to mention a few. The body becomes lighter, calmer and balanced in its posture.
If you look for long-term postural improvements in order to generate a serene reorganisation of the body and mind, if you seek for having more energy in daily life, Rolfing sessions enhance flexibility, mobility and promote physical balance.
