Benefits Of Rolfing?
The benefits of Rolfing that are most commonly experienced include and are not limited to the following:
BODY - Alignment, posture and shape more closely approach the gravitational optimum. Improved symmetry and functional balance.
BREATHING - More freedom and ease in breathing. Greater depth and distribution of breath throughout the torso, often accompanied by a measurable increase in vital capacity.
MOVEMENT - Truer alignment of body segments in motion. Greater resilience and flexibility. Smoother, more “light and free” quality of movement. Increased and more symmetrical ranges of motion.
ENERGY - A sense of increased vigor and more available energy. More efficient use of energy. Normalization of perceived temperature in extremities.
BODY AWARENESS - Increased, more sophisticated levels of proprioception and kinesthesia. A sense of mental clarity and increased perceptual activity.
RELAXATION - Lower daily tension levels. Lowered tendency to express stress as physical tension. Deeper levels of relaxation more easily obtained.
EMOTIONAL - Feelings more accessible and recognizable. Facilitation of therapy or other growth processes. An increase in the depth of insight.
SLEEP - Deeper, more restful sleep. Reduced insomnia.
BODY TISSUES - Improved skin tone and color in normal and scarred skin. Softer, more resilient texture to muscle and soft tissues.
