Shifting the Thoracolumbar Fascia
In this before and after picture from a single session you can notice a significant lengthening of my clients torso in the thoracolumbar fascia area. This Rolfing® session is addressing low back pain issues and mid back cramping. One of the goals was to encourage her spine to move more posterior in space to redirect the anterior migration of her spine which is more visible in the before picture. The movement is up and to the left lengthening through her hip area. The rotation in her pelvis is moving right to left as her left leg moves under her to give more support to her new alignment. Creating better alignment and balance, shifting weight to the more beneficial, and working with clients to have more fluidity and ease of movement are some of the goals of Rolfing® Structural Integration.
