Rolfing® in Huntington Beach, California

Rolfing® is a technique of connective tissue manipulation.  Rolfing® helps your body approach an upright position with more ease.  It is also helpful in reducing aches, pains, and stiffness.  It is a process of lengthening your fascia through very slow manipulation of your tissue with my hands, fingers, elbows and forearms. I use a bit of unscented lotion to ease any friction.

Rolfing® isn’t just “working deep” it is about putting your body back in order, the way you might have been if life hadn’t had it’s way with you.  Finding better balance from the left to right sides of your body tends to make one more comfortable. Rolfing® assists your body to be more vertical, with knees over ankles, hips over knees and feet, the torso over your pelvis with the head and neck sitting comfortably above the shoulders and torso.  Rolfing® has been helpful with scoliosis, carpel tunnel, whiplash, migraine headaches, neck and back pain.

Our bodies tend to wander off of our original upright stance of a four year olds body, through repetitive movements, and impact injuries.  Your body also does not know the difference between an emotional injury and a physical injury.  A 200 hundred pound rock on your shoulders and a 200 hundred pound emotional problem can result in very similar patterns.  Let’s not forget genetics: we aren’t born perfect, because some connective tissue patterns are passed to the next generation.  Ever notice how a child often has a similar gait as his or her parent?
