What Is Rolfing and How Does It Work?
At SHIN Wellness in Miami Florida, we offer Rolfing® which is a system of soft tissue manipulation and movement education that organizes the whole body in gravity. Rolfing bodywork affects the body’s posture and structure by manipulating the myofascial system (connective tissue). Often considered a deep-tissue approach, Rolfing bodywork actually works with all the layers of the body to ease strain patterns in the entire system.
Research has demonstrated that Rolfing creates more efficient muscle use, allows the body to conserve energy, and creates more economical and refined patterns of movement. Rolfing has also been shown to significantly reduce chronic stress, reduce spinal curvature in subjects with lordosis (sway back), and enhance neurological functioning.
The Rolfing® 10-session series is a dynamic approach to encouraging human potential and realigning the body’s structure within gravity. Over the course of 10 one-hour sessions, the entire body is addressed with the goals of improved joint function, increased fluidity of movement, and softening of connective tissues.
