How does Rolfing correct these problems?


To answer this, we must first understand the important role connective tissues play in our movement patterns. Connective tissues receive their name because they literally hold us together. They envelope our nerves, bones, organs, permeate and cover our muscles and link all of these elements together in a single, unbroken sheath that runs from our head to our toes.


In other words, everything is connected to everything else. This explains why stress in one part of the body can travel to and affect other areas seemingly unrelated to the initial point of injury, and it can affect not only our movements, but our breathing, digestion and other bodily functions. Sometimes a client will say something like, “It’s strange, but when you press on my hip, I can feel it in my left shoulder.”
