advancedrolfing | Diaphragm, Ribs, & Respiration
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.

Diaphragm, Ribs, & Respiration

Skills in Structural Integration with Bruce Schonfeld

It’s been said that ‘breath is life.’ And so, full range of motion of the respiratory mechanism is essential to whole body health and gen­e­ral wellness. This class address­es the respiratory di­a­phragm, bony thorax, (ribs, sternum, and thoracic spine), and related soft tissues impeding natural breath­ing.

Structural implications of scoliosis, breast augmen­ta­tion, mastectomy, and scar tissue associated with post­-surgical restrictions will be covered. Visceral restrictions inside the thoracic cavity will be discussed as well.
