advancedrolfing | Advanced Rolfing in Los Angeles with Bruce Shonefeld
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.

Mind body

One thing talk therapy and manual therapy have in common is that they both deal with unresolved issues. Typically, talk therapy deals with how issues are stuck in time, or in the mind, whereas manual therapy deals with how issues are stuck in space, or in the physical body.

Client-Centered Therapy

Our work is a collaborative process, including atten­tion and service to your feel­ings, body sensations and whole person ex­per­i­ence. When helpful, I offer my background of studies in body based approaches collectively called somatics. My intention is to assist clients in their personal process of embodiment and helping them develop a deeper relationship with sensation, per­cep­tion, psyche, soma, and self.
