Why We Love Rolfing (and You Should Too!)

Written by Chris Corrales

December 6, 2021

Rolfing is a form of bodywork that has been around since the 1950s. It was developed by Dr. Ida P. Rolf, who wanted to find a way to help people with chronic pain and stress-related injuries heal faster than what had been possible with other treatments at the time. The results have been profound, not only does this type of therapy improve circulation, but it also helps release tension in muscles and joints, which can lead to better health overall. In this article, we will explore some of the main reasons why we love Rolfing so much, from its ability to relieve pain to reduce emotional trauma, as well as provide you with information about how you can benefit from receiving treatment.

Why You Should Love Rolfing

    Rolfing is a type of bodywork that focuses on the deep connective tissue in the human body. This work stretches and realigns your fascia, which can lead to improved posture, less pain, and better movement. Rolfing has been shown to relieve chronic neck pain as well as lower back pain. It has also been used successfully for people with scoliosis or those who have suffered from whiplash injuries. If you are someone who suffers from chronic muscle tension or stiffness due to stress or injury then Rolfing may be right for you. Below are some reasons why we love Rolfing and you should too:

Rolfing can eliminate chronic pain.

    Rolfing can eliminate chronic pain as effectively as surgery. In today’s day and age, it is not advised to have back surgeries without a good reason for doing so. This means that if you are experiencing chronic pains in your lower or upper back then there may be an alternative treatment to the knife other than going under anesthesia and having a doctor crack open your spine to see what they can do about those problems.

It helps you improve your posture and balance.

Rolfing helps you to achieve overall body alignment. It also reduces back, neck, and shoulder pain that is caused by sitting at a desk all day or driving around town in your car. Rolfing decreases stress levels in the muscles which can help improve athletic performance. If you are an athlete, this could be great for preventing injuries like pulled hamstrings or a runner’s knee. Rolfers visit their clients once every few months for several years. This keeps them on track with maintenance sessions but allows enough time between visits so they don’t become dependent on it.

Rolfing is great for those who suffer emotionally as well.

    People often report feeling lighter and happier after their first session, even if they are in pain at the time. This type of bodywork can also help people process through old trauma or emotions that have been stored inside since childhood and manifest themselves as physical symptoms like tension headaches, stomach problems, low energy levels, and many more. It has been used to successfully treat whiplash injuries and scoliosis patients but can be beneficial to anyone looking to deepen their self-awareness about how stress manifests itself physically within the human body.

Rolfing can be done on everyone.

    Everyone is welcome to receive Rolfing, no matter what their age or health status may be. People who have rheumatoid arthritis and those with chronic pain will benefit from this type of bodywork as well as people who just want to learn more about how they hold tension in their muscles without even realizing it. The great thing about this work is that you don’t need any special equipment or a lot of space like other types of alternative treatments require; all you need is an open mind and willingness to allow your therapist access into your boundaries so they can do their job effectively.

Can help to reduce pain and stiffness associated with injuries.

    The process of Rolfing can help to reduce pain and stiffness associated with injuries. It also helps relieve stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and fatigue, as well as stiff necks or back muscles. The release of emotional tension is another benefit that you might experience through the process of Rolfing.

    We hope that this post has given you some insight into how Rolfing can be a valuable tool to help you live your best life.
