Dr. Rolf discovered that we function better when aligned with gravity and that our bodies can be brought into harmony with gravity at any age. Rolfing frees and repositions the connective tissue. As a result, tension and habitual holding patterns are released, uncovering structural ease and balance within the body. Rolfing improves posture, alignment, body awareness, coordination and balance. It reduces chronic pain, increases efficiency and grace of movement and enhances athletic performance.
