What is the Rolf Method (Rolfing) ?

From the desk of Joel Gheiler, LMT... The Rolf Method, or Rolfing, was designd by Ida P. Rolf, a pioneer researcher and biomechemist of the early 1900's who worked at the Rockefeller Institute of Medicine and later received her Doctorate from Columbia College of Physicans and Surgeons.

During her studies, Dr. Rolf made an amazing discovery: using steady and prolonged physical pressure upon fascia (the body's encapsulation tissue), one could release stressful holding patterns in organs, muscles and bones, allowing for a more upright and aligned posture.

The Ten Session Protocol that Dr. Rolf designed is delivered through the trained hands, knuckles, and elbows of a Rolf practitioner (without the use of oils or lotions), in order to balance and strengthen the body's natural healing mechanisms so that symptoms such as stress and pain are effectively alleviated.

The Rolf Method balances the various structures of the body (skeletal, muscular, digestive, respiratory and nervous), and works to bring them into a better functioning whole.
