Rolfing is a body therapy system of hands on manipulation and education designed to improve whole body alignment, balance, flexibility, and use. Anatomically, Rolfing addresses the connective tissues of the musculoskeletal system. Like a unified web; muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, joints, and bones seamlessly attach to each other. Their beautiful interweaving reveals that the whole, truly, is greater than the sum of its parts. Rolfing seeks to return these myofascial relationships to their natural order and integrity.
Rolfing aims to restore normal range of motion to motion restricted tissues with mobilization techniques and practical structural strategies. Holistic in design, the work is also helpful for many orthopedic conditions including back and neck pain, headaches, TMJ, scoliosis, spinal curvature, sciatica, carpal tunnel, shin splints, scar tissue, sports injuries, unresolved accidents, trauma, and whiplash injuries. Many people also find the benefits of Rolfing to expand beyond the body.
Bruce completed his Basic Rolfing training with the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration in Boulder, Colorado in 1994.
