What is Rolfing?
Rolfing is a method of hands-on body work and movement training that helps people to have better posture, fewer aches and pains, greater flexibility and more energy. Rolfing is named after American biochemist Dr Ida Rolf who developed the method in the 1960’s.
“One individual may experience his losing fight with gravity as a sharp pain in the back, another as the unflattering contour of his body, another as a constant fatigue, and yet another as an unrelenting threatening environment.
Those over forty may call it old age; yet all these 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-balance; they are all at war with gravity” (Rolf 1977).
