How Rolfing® Works

The constant demand of gravity, overwork, or sudden traumas can create inefficiency, imbalance, and pain in the body. Even a lack of gentle movement in our daily lives can lead to limited range of motion and impaired coordination. Rather than working to resolve any individual symptom, Rolfers™ take a holistic approach to pain management.


The purpose of Rolfing® Structural Integration is to improve a person’s overall organization and efficiency. After injury, chronic stress, and the wear and tear of activities in daily life, the body’s connective tissues can contract in ways that restrict our joints, impinge our nerves and organs, and rob us of ease. By addressing these holding patterns throughout the entire body, Rolfing releases closely guarded areas, returns joints and tissues to an open state, and empowers clients to rediscover an easy posture and flowing movement.

Clients experience less stress after releasing tense patterns, and can enjoy and explore their world more fully. In addition to restoring physical alignment in harmony with gravity, the Rolfing process can also lead to deep psychological and emotional changes as clients explore what balance means in their lives.

The entire story of our lives is written in our bodies—all our joys, tears, hopes and fears. Let Rolfing help transform your story to one of greater well-being.

"Strength that has effort in it is not what you need;

you need the strength that is the result of ease."

Ida P. Rolf
