Ida Rolf with client.

Rolfing is a form of soft-tissue manipulation that was developed by the late Dr. Ida P. Rolf in the 1970’s.  It is a ten-series ( ) approach to the whole body that offers the possibility of better alignment, freedom from chronic pain, stress relief, improved posture, increased lightness of being, enhanced athletic performance, and through it’s educating approach make overall movement easier and even more enjoyable. Rolfing is a non-invasive, non-surgical, holistic approach to the healing of the body through a variety of modalities including, but not limited to: soft-tissue manipulation, kinesiology, personal proprioceptive identity (or just learning how to move through gravity in the way that you were born to), personal education fitted for each person, etc. It is thoughtful of how our bodies need to be regulated by homeostasis, not unnecessary medications or any idea that takes us further away from natural. Rolfing sometimes serves as a new beginning, a new body, a new way of looking at life. It is body work, but can be so much more.

The Rolfer takes the client through 10 separate sessions spread out over an amount of time, typically 1 session per week, but there are stipulations. I offer this “10 series” but some clients feel they only need 3 sessions or just an occasional “tune-up”. Whatever the case, I’m willing to work with each person specific to their body and needs, but for the holistic experience it usually is recommended to receive the 10 series, then tune-ups as time moves on. I’ve had the 10 series twice, once from an Advanced Rolfer and once from a student, both times the benefits were very apparent, though most people just receive the 10 series once.

I charge

$100 per Rolfing session (75-90 min.

What to wear the day of your session: Athletic clothing is best. Shorts, tank tops, sports bra, etc. these all work.  At different times during your session, you may be asked to get up and walk around, or perform various other movements to assess the work and how your body is responding. Keep this in mind when choosing clothing. It is important for you the client to be comfortable, but also that the Rolfer can work with you, so things like jeans or a sweater wouldn’t be that great.
