Rolfing: Notes On Sports

“The Olympic athletes wouldn’t have as many injuries if they had appropriate soft tissue therapy. Rolfing is valuable for athletes in high level competition to address the build up of scar tissue and disarrangement of myofascial tissue that occurs from training, competition and injury.” Dr Karl Ullis ( U.S. team physician, 1992 Olympics)

A Rolfer wants to change the structure of your body to correct the sources of tension, so that the tension is unnecessary.

Rolfers can discern patterns of tension across the whole body. The entire musculature can be involved in accommodating one localized spot of great tension. If the rest of the body is released, it will decrease that tension.

Body Structure is the solidified result of repetitive movements and postural patterns.

Work is holistic in nature, an approach towards health maintenance and personal evolution.
