Rolfing is a holistic system of soft tissue manipulation and movement education that organizes the whole body in gravity. It can ease stress and chronic pain by improving posture and bringing the body into better alignment. Chronic pain is usually due to an overcompensation created by some postural anomaly, so Rolfing looks at the whole body and frees up areas that are stuck and teaches the body how to wake up muscles that have forgotten how to do their job. By working with the connective tissue and nervous system the whole body is re-educated and can then function more efficiently.
