Whenever we hold on to emotional tension, there is a corresponding holding in our physical bodies.
Who hasn’t held their breath in a frightening situation or tensed up under stress? If this is something that only happens occasionally the body is less likely to hold on to the gesture. However, if this is a response that persists over a length of time we may create a neuro-muscular pattern, often unconsciously. The stimulus, stressful situations, traumatic events can have long passed, but our bodies are stuck with a pattern that has outlived its usefulness. We are using energy to maintain these unconscious patterns that we could use to do the things we love. We are sending body language out into the world that no longer corresponds to who we are today. Rolfing and Rolfing Movement address these patterns. The client and practitioner work together to reset them.
As our physical bodies become more balanced we can have more ease and energy for other aspects of our lives.
Rolfing can support therapy and other contemplative and transformative practices. Throughout and after your Rolfing series you may experience increased mental, emotional, and spiritual growth and clarity.
