Fascial Release Bodywork (Structural Integration- Rolfing)
Fascia is a specialized system of the body that has an appearance similar to a spider’s web. Fascia is very densely woven, covering every muscle, bone, nerve, artery and vein, as well as all of our internal organs including the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord. This type of body work is based on the work of Dr. Ida P. Rolf.
Fascial release works to lengthen, stretch, and soften tissue to restore postural balance, and help with ease of movement. This modality helps with promoting positive changes in one’s tissue, lowering anxiety, improving ones awareness and presence of being in their body.
Similar to Deep Tissue Massage, some discomfort during the treatment and soreness after for a few days are possible.
This type of session starts with a postural assessment or evaluation. This helps the therapist have a visual understanding of how a client stands in gravity, and how the client moves. This allows the therapists’ to assess alignment, balance, mobility and movement patterns.
