What are sessions like?

A typical Rolfing session begins with an evaluation of the client’s structure. ?Rolfers are trained to look for where and how restrictions occur, thus allowing the practitioner to be more effective in the sessions. ?

Much of the work is done with the client lying on a standard massage table, while some may be done seated or standing.

The duration of a typical Rolfing session is 60-75 minutes.

How much do the sessions cost?

The cost is $130 per session.
A discount is available with the purchase of a five session package for $600.
Checks, Cash and Credit Cards are accepted.

Cancellation Policy

If you need to cancel a session, 24 hours’ notice is required in order to allow time to attempt to fill the empty session. If you do not give 24 hours’ notice, you will be responsible for a half session fee ($65). Exceptions to this policy will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

The 10 series sessions:

Rolfing is usually done in a progressive series of 10 sessions.
Each session addresses, aligns and connects specific layers and areas of the body in a way designed to prepare the body for the next session making the results cumulative and lasting. ?

The 10 Series can be described as a recipe for balancing the entire body. The first 3 sessions are considered superficial and do not address deeper structures. Sessions 4 - 7 work with deeper structures that effect posture. The last 3 sessions are the integration sessions that educates the body on how to move more efficiently. ?

It is not required to do the 10 Series. ?Some clients only want to have specific areas worked on. ?It is common for many clients to try the first sessions to determine if Rolfing is right for them.

"In Structural Integration, we expect to give a cycle of ten sessions. There is a reason for this. We are not dealing with local problems. We are not dealing with the kind of thing that you can say, "Well, I fixed that, that's all." We are dealing with intent to make a body a sturdier human being, to make a body more secure, more adequate within the field of gravity. This requires that muscles be balanced, and need to be balanced around a vertical line. And, when I talk about balancing muscles, I'm talking about balancing the right side against the left side. About balancing the front of the body against the back of the body, and finally, about balancing the innermost muscles against the outermost muscles, the inside against the outside, this is the most important of those balances, and we start from the outside working in, and it takes us ten hours before we can get to the place where we can really balance the outside against the inside."
