Improve Alignment and Body Movement
Rolfing® Structural Integration Can Improve Alignment and Movement
One of basic ideas of Rolfing® is that human discomfort, physical and emotional, come from the imbalance in the connective tissue and its relationship with the earth's gravitational field. So the goal is restore balance and alignment within the body through manipulation of the connective tissue so that it allows the muscles and joints to move freely.
Fascia is pervasive throughout the entire body in different layers starting just under the skin and then surrounding the muscles and joints and bones and on to the internal organs. These three layers coordinate and reveal a person's posture and movement patterns. Fascia is the determiner of form or shape of the body and what is manipulated and is the focus of a Rolfing® Structural Integration Practitioner.
