Gravity in Rolfing   


 The gravitational field of the earth is easily the most potent physical influence in any human life. When human energy field and gravity are at way, needless to say gravity wins every time. It may be man’s friend and reinforce his activity; it can also act as his enemy and drag him, giving physical pain and discomfort. Balance to the body allows the flow of gravitational energy through the body structure. Asymmetry and randomness betray lack of support by the gravitational field. As there is plasticity in the human body, due to the fascia, this allows the body structure to be repatterned to be aligned with the flow of gravity. This is where the Rolfers® goal and passion, is bringing your body to alignment.


There are many people who have taken on to become Rolfers® after they got Rolfed. These also include yoga and Pilates instructors, massage and physical therapists who wished to further their understanding into the alignment of the body through Rolfing.


“A Rolfer works with gravity. He understands the gravitational pull in everything that a human being does, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, from the moment he is conceived until the day the undertaker catches up with him. Gravity does not take a vacation.”
~ Dr. Ida  P. Rolf

"This is the gospel of Rolfing: When the body gets working appropriately, the force of gravity can flow through. Then, spontaneously, the body heals itself."
Dr. Ida P. Rolf
