Rolfing

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.

SHIN WELLNESS

Who Uses It?

  • People seek Rolfing as a way to reduce pain and chronic muscle tension, generally resulting from physical and emotional traumas. Rolfing is used by many professional athletes to break up scar tissue, rehabilitate injuries, and increase the range of motion to improve performance and avoid future injuries. Dancers and musicians often use the work to increase comfort in their bodies while performing, as well as avoid repetitive stress injuries.

  • Some manufacturing companies have employed Rolfing to decrease workers’ compensation costs due to repetitive stress injuries. And, based on the mind/body connection, many counselors and therapists incorporate Rolfing in the therapeutic approach. Greater physical support and flexibility ultimately influences emotions and energy levels.

  • Rolfing® structural integration is named after its creator, Dr. Ida P. Rolf. Dr. Rolf received her Ph.D. in biochemistry from Columbia University in 1920 and furthered her knowledge of the body through her scientific work in organic chemistry at the Rockefeller Institute.

  • Through soft tissue manipulation and movement education, Rolfers affect body posture and structure over the long-term. Unlike massage, which often focuses on relaxation and relief of muscle discomfort, Rolfing is aimed at improving body alignment and functioning.

  • Rolfing can speed up injury recovery by reducing pain, stiffness and muscle tension; improving movement and circulation around joints, and attending to both the injury and any secondary pain that may develop from favoring the injury.

  • Structural integration is generally performed over a series of ten sessions. This approach allows the Rolfer to affect the client’s structure in a methodical manner. This includes loosening superficial fascia before working in deeper areas, improving support in feet and legs before affecting higher structures, and helping clients find ways to benefit from freer movement in their daily activities.

How Is Rolfing Different From Massage?

Through soft tissue manipulation and movement education, Rolfers affect body posture and structure over the long-term. Unlike massage, which often focuses on relaxation and relief of muscle discomfort, Rolfing is aimed at improving body alignment and functioning.

Rolfing is different from deep-tissue massage, in that practitioners are trained to create overall ease and balance throughout the entire structure, rather than focusing on areas presenting with tension. As a structure becomes more organized, chronic strain patterns are alleviated, and pain and stress decrease.

See What Our Patients Say About Our Services

“This is my second time coming for acupuncture and it was the best. Where massages do well for most, acupuncture works better for me for the long run. Anytime I need a fix, I always come here. They’re all very professional, courteous and make me feel very comfortable. Each time I’ve had Chad for my acupuncturist and he does a phenomenal job!! Totally worth every penny.”

“Once again Shin saved me. I hurt myself doing my crazy workouts in Crossfit and weight training. Somehow they fixed me in one visit so I’m back in the gym. LOVE THEM ALL!!!”

“I’m very impressed with the DRX I have had problems for about ten yrs after an auto accident head on. The past year and a half the pain has gotten much worse into my hip and down my left leg. I felt a great relief as early as my first couple of visits. At the end of my treatment I felt like I was never involved in the accident there was no pain at all. I felt 10yrs younger. I can’t say enough about the DRX it is unbelievable. Thank you Dr Gallego.”
