Lets have a consultation
First, we’ll discuss your health history, goals, and expectations. I will address any questions you may have about how I work and what we will try to accomplish in our sessions together. Then I will be evaluating your body structure both standing and walking. You can wear your under garments, running shorts, and/or a sports bra during your evaluation.
Manual Therapy Techniques
Second, I’ll ask you to lie on the massage table and use manual therapy techniques to release your strain patterns. A large part of my work is also helping to bring awareness to your own specific patterns and finding comfortable alternatives for your daily life. At the end of the session, I usually give you exercises to practice at home which builds on your foundation.
Planning Your Sessions
Last, we’ll plan. Rolfing is done in a series of 10 sessions, each building upon the last, lasting anywhere from 75 to 90 mins. I recommend scheduling 1 to 2 weeks apart. Every session has a corresponding theme, objective, and territory of the body that is explored. This makes each session like a lesson whereby you become more familiar with how your body works.
