Balance Your Body

How Does it Work?

Rolfing SI works with your bodys internal system of flexible support, otherwise known as fascia. These connective tissues surround every muscle fiber, encase all joints and even have a role in the nervous system. It is helpful to think of the fascial system as an intricate internal guide-wire network for the body. If one set of support wires becomes tight or out of place, the excess tension may appear as nagging joint pain, muscle soreness, or a postural shift.

To correct internal misalignments, a Rolfer uses mild, direct pressure to melt or release facial holdings. This allows the body to find health through the re-establishment of balance. It is currently believed that the slow, deep strokes of Rolfing SI stimulate intra-fascial mechanoreceptors (sensory neurons of the muscle nerve), which in turn trigger the nervous system to reduce the tension of the related muscles and fascia.

Put another way, Rolfing SI allows the brain and nervous system to re-bootareas of the body that are receiving too much electrical stimulation. This can often be felt as chronically tight or sore muscles. Once a healthy level of muscle contraction is established, the persons entire structure is free to express a pain-free form.

When the body gets working appropriately, the force of gravity can flow through, then spontaneously, the body heals itself.
