Rolfing often gets confused with deep tissue massage. Some people describe it has Yoga being done for you. It is especially helpful for athletes and dancers but can help everyone experiencing the physical and mental challenges of living in the contemporary world.
Rolfing is a system of soft tissue manipulation and movement education that organizes the whole body in gravity. Rolfing bodywork affects the body's posture and structure by manipulating the myofascial system (connective tissue). Combining Rolfing and chiropractic can be mutually beneficial. Chiropractic moves bones back to their proper place to restore joint function. Rolfing improves alignment by manipulating the tissues that hold bones — and everything else — in place.
