Common Benefits of Rolfing

What is Rolfing?  |  The Rolfing® Series  |  Common Benefits of Rolfing® | About Ida Rolf

Rolfing® works with the basic tenant that the function of a person, or any aspect of physical reality, depends to a large degree on its form or structure; structure = function. In this sense, a well-formed or well-organized thing, a body in this case, has the potential to function well. In turn, a well-functioning body has the potential to create in itself a structural condition where in it responds to and interacts with its environment optimally. So, many aspects of dis-ease potentially fall within the realm of being treated by structural bodywork such as Rolfing.
