What is Rolfing?
When there are strains and imbalances in your body due to injuries, accidents, or surgeries, you’ll often experience impaired movement and pain.
Named after its founder, Dr. Ida P. Rolf, Rolfing® Structural Integration is a form of bodywork that reorganizes the bodies’ connective tissues, called fascia.
Dr. Rolf recognized that the body is a seamless network of tissues rather than a collection of separate parts. The connective tissues surround, support and penetrate all of the muscles, bones, nerves and organs. Rolfing Structural Integration works on this web of connective tissues to realign and balance the whole body, restoring flexibility and freedom of movement, revitalizing your energy, and alleviating pain.
What to Expect
Each session is 50-60 minutes and costs $125. For an initial session I allot 90 minutes so there is time to discuss your health and your reasons for being here. Please complete the Health Questionnaire prior to coming and bring with you.
You are not under a sheet for this work. Women generally wear shorts, a bra, and a loose fitting top. Men can wear shorts. There is a bathroom where you can change.
Work may be done seated, on a table, or sometimes standing. The work is very interactive, and often I will ask you to do specific movements. At the end of the session we may discuss stretching/repatterining exercises you can do on your own to aid the work we do together.
There is plenty of free parking in the front of my office. Google Maps is best for directions.
I can do one session or a series of sessions depending on why you are here and what you want from the work. Depending on the severity and time of your issue, a series of sessions may be required. Many clients continue to return on a regular basis for maintenance.
If you are considering Rolfing but need more information, I offer a free 30 minute consultation.
Cash, check, and credit, debit cards are accepted. Payment is made at the end of each session.
Please provide at least 24 hours notice in the event you need to cancel.
I discovered Rolfing in 1995 when seeking treatment for chronic back pain. After one session, I was significantly better, and I continued with a series of sessions. Rolfing had such an impact on my life that after 21 years with Hewlett-Packard, I decided to become a Rolfer. In 2004, I graduated from the Ida Rolf Institute of Structural Integration in Boulder, Colorado and began my practice. In 2013 I completed the Rolf Institute Advanced training and in 2017 completed my Cranial Sacral certification. Athletics have always been a part of my life. I swim, cycle, hike, and do strength training at the downtown YMCA.
