Rolfing is a deep powerful massage designed to soften the collagenous fascias of the body. It was first developed by American biochemist, Ida Rolf, in the 1940's and '50's. The practitioner applies his/her weight through fingers, knuckles and elbows reaching into body areas to loosen and realign the musculature and its supports. Misalignment is corrected session by session.

Rolfing is useful for treating posture and musculo-skeletal pains and tensions, and for unearthing deep seated emotions buried in the fascia of the muscles, which can then be integrated through the massage. It is helpful in modulating voice, breath control, attitude to self and mood.

Rolfing is especially useful in treating the following health conditions:
asthma, back pain, coeliac disease, colitis, constipation, crohn's disease, diarrhoea, IBS, indigestion, lumbago, musculo-skeletal problems, peptic ulcers, poor posture, respiratory problems, sciatica, sports injuries, stress.

You are recommended to seek advice of a qualified health practitioner. To find a qualified practitioner in your area look in the Practitioner Directory.
