During a session there is time dedicated to the manipulation of fascias and time spent in education in gravity (Rolfing Movement)
During a session, I am attentive to your needs and real life experience. I then look at your postural alignment as you stand and walk, and I ask you to notice various sensations. This observation combined with several manual tests allows me to approach your symptoms in their globalism and to choose a personal strategy for your session.
Then I invite you to lie down on a massage table and with my hands and forearms, I work progressively with your physical structure, that is to say, on your fascial net. These manipulations give suppleness and fluidity to the different tissues. Little by little they become balanced and their tone improves. As I am working, I invite you to welcome any new perceptions that the manipulations provide and propose simple movements to do, helping you to be present to your impressions and your organisation of movement.The enhanced circulation that implements itself in the areas being worked on allows a better relationship between different body parts. The autonomic nervous system also balances itself out, permitting a healthy alternation between states of vigilance and relaxation.
Once you are back into a vertical position - sitting, standing or walking - I propose a short period of time to pay attention to how your posture is transforming itself, giving access to a new coordination of movements. Many new perceptions can emerge: the feeling of the feet being anchored, the sensation of lightness, ease of breathing, the opening of space around you and therefore a straightening up of your posture, fluidity of movement with a feeling of overall stability. The goal of Rolfing Movement is to perpetuate these new sensations by recognising them, naming them and making them your own.
