Understanding Rolfing and Its Healing Wonders Rolfing is the manipulation of soft tissues and it involves movement education which organizes the whole body in gravity. It was developed by Dr. Ida Rolf, a biochemist, who believed that manipulation of the soft connective tissues or fascia and gravity can provide proper body alignment permanently. It is often considered as a form of deep-tissue massage, affecting the body’s structure and posture through manipulation of the connective tissues. The benefits of rolfing include conservation of body energy, efficient use of muscles, and building refined and economical patterns of movement, reducing chronic stress, reducing spinal curvature and enhancing neurological functioning. According to Dr. Ida Rolf, rolfing is based on the proposition that the human body is basically an energy field that operates on the earth’s greater energy. It has been proposed that the body can be organized around an axis perpendicular to the earth to reach its optimum functioning when it is parallel to the pull of gravity. Rolf believes that gravity tends to shorten the fascia that leads to the disorder of the body’s arrangement causing imbalance, so rolfing aims in restoring the arrangement of the body around it axis and facilitate movement improvement. Anyone can benefit from rolfing especially athletes and dancers, chronic pain sufferers, and aging people. Rolfing helps in lengthening the connective tissues to transform the body back into proper alignment because of injury such as sprains, increasing fluidity and efficiency in movement. Rolfing is popularly used for treating chronic pain, releasing painful compression associated with tension headaches, backaches and neck pain. Appearance of aging is caused by the stiffness of muscles and joints, as evidenced by head that tilt forward, curvature in the upper back, hip extension and loss of ankle movement. Rolfing can help slow the aging process because muscle and joint stiffness are reduced and slowed to create a feeling of youth and vitality. Rolfing is a combination of passive and active movement retraining, performed in a progression of ten sessions, or known as the “recipe”. A rolfing session typically lasts for sixty to ninety minutes, and the positions include sitting, lying and standing. Rolfing can cause moments of intense sensation or pain while being treated, or soreness after the session, but there are techniques that are gently performed for the elderly and children. Rolfing helps in improving body alignment and functioning, and it creates overall balance and ease throughout the entire structure, rather than merely focusing on body areas presenting with tension, thereby alleviating chronic strain patterns, and reducing stress and pain.
