Rolfing @ Health Rediscovered, Glasgow
Rolfing is a method of deep tissue bodywork combined with movement education. Together these two approaches aim to balance the body so it can move more freely and be more comfortable.
Rolfing addresses patterns and tension that can develop as a result of trauma, work demands, or postural habits, to restore a more efficient and easier alignment. Whilst a person may have pain in a particular place, Rolfing recognises the interrelatedness of the body and so treats the entire structure through a systematic approach called the ‘ Ten Series’.
Benefits of Rolfing include, improved posture, improved flexibility and range of movement, enhancing the ease of breathing, releasing painful holding patterns and managing acute and chronic pain from past injuries.
