I’ve officially started my Rolfing series!
This is the second (read the first post here) of roughly twelve blog posts that will describe the experience I’ve had with a method of structural integration called Rolfing. I will post one blog/vlog per session with my Rolfer. I will attempt to keep it brief and focused on my observations of the treatment, not necessarily a scientific breakdown of the technique being applied. After all, I am the patient—not the doctor. 😉
The Superficial Frontline
This first session was focused on the body’s superficial frontline. This meant my Rolfer worked up my body, starting at my feet, to release tensions in the “superficial” muscles and fascia (connective tissue).
This includes the quads, rectus abdominis, and pectorals major, as well as initial work with balance of the arches and position of the neck and head. There is an overall focus on creating lift through the front of the body, opening the breath, and releasing the shoulders back. -www.bostonintegratedbody.com
To find out what I felt and thought about my first official session, please take a look at my video blog below. Also, if you want to follow me on this experiment, leave your email in the form above, and I will alert you when I have an update ready. You can also find the rest of my videos regarding this experience on my Youtube page LindsiKay.
Do you have experience with Rolfing? I would love to hear from you, especially if you were a patient that completed the entire series! What did you think about it? Has it helped you? Do the results last long-term? Feel free to comment your experience below, or send me an email with your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
