Rolfing® + Shiatsu
Rolfing® + Shiatsu is a very unique combination of Rolfing® and Shiatsu techniques. It is powerful enough to deal with any of your issues. Good for correcting the imbalances of the body and for maintaining and promoting a health.
Rolfing® is a manipulative treatment systematized by the American doctor, Ida Rolf.
It is a holistic method which corrects improper bodily habits and how the body is used by working on the fascia. Rolfing® is useful for treating chronic issues to sports related problems and also healing a variety of conditions ranging from psychological stress.
In recent years, it has been becoming more and more popular with people having these sorts of needs.
Many healthy professional and amateur athletes and musicians also find that it can help their performance.
This is effective for correcting the bodily misalignment most people have accumulated as a result of their life styles and the imbalances caused by injuries or accidents.
Shiatsu is a one of the Japanese traditional treatment for correcting the imbalances of the body and for maintaining and promoting health.
It is that the whole body is treated, point by point, meridian by meridian. This has the effect of balancing Qi in the body and of stimulating the patient’s healing potential.
The word “Qi” appears quite frequently in the Japanese language and culture. The aspect of my work that makes it “Traditional Japanese Therapy” is the use of Qi. Without balancing the Qi, it cannot be worked functionally.
I apply pressure over the whole body. Areas that the person may not have been aware of, as being a problem, are often found through this process. As I palpate, the person is often prompted to remember a long forgotten incident, or to admit their true situation.
Shiatsu can deal with both the root imbalance, general discomfort and the fluctuation of life.
The distinctive features of
a series of Rolfing® sessions
In a series of 10 sessions, Rolfing® both treats you and helps you recognize and rediscover your bodily habits-how your body reacts under the force of gravity and the way your fascia is twisted.
The reason we need to understand how gravity relates to bodily alignment is that all human activities, whether sitting, standing, walking or lying down, are performed under its influence and it is the key factor in how our unconscious bodily habits are formed.
Sessions 1-7 were precisely designed by Dr. Rolf in terms of the parts of body treated and the order of treatment, whereas sessions 8-10 are customized by the practitioner for each individual patient.
The main purpose of the series of treatments is to rebalance and realign the whole body and correct improper posture and physical habits. As a result of this, a variety of disorders will be improved.
During the sessions, the practitioner regularly checks the patient’s breathing and way of walking as indicators of their progress and areas still in need of correction. Breath is a vital and continuous life function which can provide valuable feed-back information to the practitioner about the patient’s conscious and unconscious states. As walking upright on two legs is a specifically human activity, it is also very useful for checking the functioning and balance of the whole body.
