Rolfing Session 3: The Lateral Line
The third session of a KMI Rolfing series addresses the lateral line of your body. Your Rolfer will work to stretch the fascia that runs along both sides of your body. This treatment seeks to engage the stabilizing muscles and fascia necessary in order to support the work from sessions 1 and 2. This process begins at the feet, working up the outer leg, including the IT band and abdominal obliques. Then up through the rib cage (that was weird!), shoulders and neck.
And The Intensity Continues…
I really liked this session. Although, I must say that the work my Rolfer did on my inner shoulders was probably the most painful yet. The stretching of the connective tissue over the rib cage was also a very strange sensation. Not super painful…more like incredibly uncomfortable. Below is my video blog for session 3, in which I describe my entire experience with the Lateral Line.
