10-Series Rolfing®

Service Description

Session 1: Breath and the Hips Ease in breathing is fundamental to the body accepting change. The ribcage, head, neck, shoulder girdles, chest, and back all work together with the breath. Opening the hips begins in this session to allow the legs more freedom of movement under the pelvis. Session 2: Support Through the Feet The feet and ankles are the foundation of the body. Here, the focus is on stabilizing the foundation by working on the feet and lower legs. Session 3: Opening the Sides and Shoulders The head, shoulder girdle, and hips all need to relate to one another in a balanced way. Working through the sides of the body, the shoulders and low-back can help establish a freedom of movement and a new sense of ease. Session 4: Opening the Inner Line of the Legs Working from the inner arch of the foot up the line of the leg to the bottom of the pelvis, this session prepares the base of support needed for deeper unwinding of patterns in the torso and upper body. Session 5: Continuing Through the Pelvis Balanced, fluid movement from the legs can only provide good support to the upper body if the pelvis is also balanced and able to move. Session five focuses on making sure the lower abdominal region and the front of the hips are allowing the pelvis its full, natural mobility. Session 6: Opening the Back of the Pelvis The sacrum is the triangular bone at the base of the spine where the two pelvic bones and the spine intersect. Having created more openness in the front of the pelvis and hips, session 6 brings openness to the back line of the body. This allows the sacrum the ability to move with both the spine and the pelvis, giving the spine more freedom of movement. Session 7: Putting the Head on Top With support from the legs and openness in the pelvis bringing more mobility to the spine, the neck and head need the freedom to move in balanced ease on top of the spine. Session 8: Integration Begins Having found an improved structural alignment, the body needs to be able to take this new alignment into movement. This session focuses on revisiting areas that might still be holding tension in order to bring greater ease of movement to the entire body. Session 9: Continuing Integration Across the Body The body is moving at its best when movement crosses from one side to the other and back. Session 10: Ending with Balance The focus of Session 10 is to leave the body at the highest level of order and balance.
