Rolfing is a form of manual and physical therapy that is similar to massage. Like a deep tissue massage, Rolfing can help with circulation and general treatment of pain, injury, and stress. Unlike massage Rolfing does not use oils nor target specific trigger points or muscles during its treatments. Rather, we use anything from gentle to deep contact and movement to work with the connective tissue, fascia, nervous system, joints, bones, and surrounding tissues. Rolfing intends to not just temporarily relieve pain, but to transform the body; empowering each client to heal and reduce their dependency on pain medication or on-going therapy visits.

Depending on your condition it is recommended to see a physical therapist, bodywork therapist (Rolfer or Massage Therapist), and/or holistic nutritionist prior to undergoing surgery. Many conditions can be supported or changed by hands-on physical therapy techniques, diet, exercise, and improved movement patterns.
Injury & Surgery Recovery
If you are recovering from an injury or surgery it is recommended to let the initial inflammation, swelling, and open wounds heal prior to scheduling Rolfing treatments. Rolfing can help to break up scar tissue, improve mobility, and reduce pain at the injury and surgery site. Before scheduling as session insure your doctor has cleared you for massage, physical therapy, or physical activity.
