Rolfing® Structural Integration (SI) is a method of improving your body awareness by bringing balance and tonus to your postures, better range of motion, availability and flexibility to your movements. Using gentle manipulations of the fascias (tissues of support and shape) , and a movement-specific education, the Rolfing practitioner (the Rolfer) guides you to a suitable postural balance and optimum freedom of movements.
My name is Richard LOISEAU, I am a certified Rolfer. I deeply love the approach of Rolfing® because it is intended to give back their autonomy to the individuals, restore their power of action and their grace of movement.
Improve your posture
When postures are not well balanced, discomfort settles in the form of muscle tensions and limited range of movement. If the situation persists, pain, injury or loss of capacity may occur.
It is important to avoid reaching this stage. Rolfing® SI deeply reshapes the fascia so that the body structure may reorganize and find a balance adapted to your morphology. The body thus releaved, a specific movement education brings mobility and availability in areas previously limited and restricted.
When the body reaches this state of availability, the energy that was previously spent to maintain tensions, fight against gravity, compensate for physical imbalances, this energy becomes available for other more useful activities. High level of tonicity, flexibility, good mood and creativity can then expand without limitation.
Rolfing® SI will make it possible for you to deepen the knowledge of your body to expand its possibilities of expression, to refine its capacities of perception and eventually live a more intimate and peaceful life.
For whom is Rolfing® appropriate?
Rolfing® is especially appropriate for people such as:
- athletes eager to improve their performances
