Rolfing Movement does not necessarily include fascial manipulations, and can be experimented in individual or collective courses.
Rolfing Movement mainly focuses on:
• perceptive aspects of our habitual movements
• finding our individual potential to move, moving in different ways while achieving the same goal
• discovering the meaning behind certain patterns of movement
• integrating gravity and creating ease and balance through self-education exercises
It is a good idea to experience Rolfing Movement in groups. It allows one to realise that there are as many movement strategies as there are human beings on this planet. There is no ideal movement, nor an ideal body, yet everyone can learn to integrate gravity and gain more muscular energy, flexibility and strength in his or her movement.
What is Rolfing Movement ?
Rolfing combines a hands-on approach and an educative approach to posture.
The hands-on approach aligns the client with his or her gravitational field by means of a systematic manipulation of the fascias.
The educative approach, also called Rolfing Movement, allows a person to integrate gravitational force into his or her habitual perceptions concerning his/her posture and movement coordination. It opens possibilities for finding one’s full capacity of movement and expression.
Rolfing Movement was created at the Rolf Institute in the seventies and can be thought of as postural re-education.
An individual Rolfing session includes a time for manipulation and a time for education in movement (Rolfing Movement).
