Hooked On Rolfing

Rolfing, a type of deep tissue therapy, also known as structural integration, is a means of realigning the body by breaking up adhesions in the muscles.

Most simply, Rolfing is a way of reorganizing the structure of the human body so that body segments are balanced along a vertical line and you feel your entire body as an integrated whole.

"The point is to re-establish order in the structure of the body so that all the major segments are in vertical alignment where they can function properly," says Rey Allen, a certified Rolfer in private practice at Soul Fitness in Fort Worth. "The downward pull of gravity can be an uplifting force if body parts are properly organized for biomechanical efficiency."
