What is Rolfing?

Rolfing is a scientifically validated technique of soft tissue manipulation and movement education that was developed by Dr. Ida Rolf, a biochemist, in the 1940's.
Rolfing is aimed at re-establishing the natural alignment and structural integration of our human body for vitality and wellbeing.


Rolfing consists of some simple ideas about the human body structure and its posture


1)       Most human beings are significantly out of alignment with gravity

2)       We function better when are aligned with the gravity

3)       The human body is so plastic that its alignment can be brought into harmony with gravity at practically any time of life.


Rolfing is not a cure for any particular disease, but is rather a systematic approach that attempts to restore balance to the entire body. This approach recognizes that the connective tissue (fascia) forms a continuous web throughout the body. With the body in a state of balance, a person's nervous system, organs, mind, and natural healing system can function more efficiently.


Rolfers examine and assess a person body posture and body alignment and brings about the body in balance and in alignment. Rolfers also examines other factors like scoliois, kyphosis and also the feet and knees alignment.

Rolfing  is a process of 10 sessions which brings the body  and posture in alignment with gravity. Through this 10 sessions process, Rolfers help to correct any imbalance in the body, stress and trauma which has been in residue in the body for a long period of time.


Rolfing also benenfits many people who does yoga, improve their stretching after the posture and alignment of the body in is balance. Rolfing also helps many athletics like swimmers, runners, cylist and many others who deals in sports,.
