Each client’s interest in Rolfing along with what they want to achieve is unique to that individual. For this reason I find it beneficial to schedule a free consultation along with with your first session. This will allow us to discuss your interest in Rolfing as well as conduct a structural analysis and develop goals for the sessions.
required & free
$125 per session
I have a 24 hour cancellation policy. If you cancel within 24 hours of your appointment, and I am not able to fill the spot with another appointment, you will be charged the full amount. With that said, if I have to cancel on you for any reason inside that same 24 hour window, your next session is free.
I do not accept insurance at this time. However, some insurance companies will reimburse you for alternative care. If this is the case then I would be happy to provide you with an invoice.
I truly believe that Rolfing can benefit every single person, so for those who truly can not afford it, I offer free Ten Series scholarships. I only offer one scholarship at a time, so you must apply in advance for the wait list.
What to Expect
Sessions last 75 minutes. At the start of each session I check in about how you are feeling and what you have noticed since the previous session. Then I begin a structural analysis where I look at patterns, assess functions, and observe changes session by session. This information is used to see how the body is functioning effectively and where there could be more ease. From there you will transition to a massage table where the hands on work will take place.
For many people, the changes felt during a session are instant. For others, the work percolates over the course of a few days.
What to wear
Loose running shorts and a sports bra (If applicable). This allows me to work directly on the skin as well as have you switch positions and move around comfortably. It's not uncommon that I'll have you up off the table doing different movements during a session.
Why do people say Rolfing hurts?
In the 1970’s, Rolfing got the reputation of being very deep work. Since then we have learned a lot about the nervous system and the human body as a whole. In my opinion, working to a depth of pain is counterproductive. If you are anticipating pain, your body is tensing up. We are working to get your nervous system to be desensitized to pain, not more sensitive. This is why I don’t work that way. I will check in with you regularly to see how the work is feeling to you. We will work together to find the most effective layer to be on.
