Rolfing Q & A
Unfortunately health insurance does not cover rolfing treatments, but rolfing tends to produce results much faster than most other insurance covered therapies. I accept credit cards, cash and personal checks. I do not accept payments in advance for the whole series or offer discounts. Rolfing sessions individually or in the 10 series are $185 US each. I do not turn away patients for injury treatment due to cost if the injury is effecting your ability to earn a living, so if you are injured and need to discuss affordability I am open to that. Some people space their sessions further apart to make Rolfing more affordable on a monthly budget.
What do I need to know for my first session?
Rolfing® is much more interactive than many other therapies... because I need to evaluate your standing and walking structure before, during, and after sessions, underwear is the traditional Rolfing® attire for clients. For men, briefs or boxer-briefs and for women, a bra and underwear (a two piece swimsuit is another option). Because we will be doing work on your back each session, sports bras or other tops with a X backs are not ideal. It is okay to discuss other options for attire before our first session, allow up to 90 minutes for the first session so we can go over your health history and answer any questions you may have. Subsequent sessions are 75 minutes.
What will I feel like and be able to do after a session?
You will feel better almost immediately and participate in your regular activities. Sometimes you may be a bit tender to the touch in some of the areas we just worked for a couple of days but you will have less pain and restriction in those areas.
Because Rolfing is working on lengthening and releasing the connective tissue adhesions in your body, for best results I recommend to not do any resistance style exercises for the next 2-3 days after a session on the area of the body we just worked. For example if we are releasing your shoulders and arms don’t lift weights, do push ups etc for a couple of days and stay focused on your lower body.
Do you prescribe stretches and exercises to follow up with?
No. Rolfing is a complete therapy which produces results rapidly in the session itself. There is no need to follow complicated and tedious exercises like with Physical Therapy to get you the results. If you do want my advice it would be to go to a skilled yoga instructor. Yoga is the art of stretching with more than 3000 years of history (hard to argue with that)!
Is Rolfing Painful?
No. What is painful are the adhesions and the restrictions in your body now. Going deeply into them to work them out can be intense or even very intense at times but it is nothing that even children and the elderly can’t handle. You will have less pain even after your first treatment. (In more severe injuries the sessions can be painful at times when working on the most painful part of your injury).
What can I expect?
I produce very effective and rapid results for injuries and performance enhancement removing decades of accumulated chronic tension and stiffness in the body in just a few treatments. You will progress dramatically further in your professional sport or yoga practice in fewer treatments saving you time and money. Further, Rolfing creates semi-permanent results leaving you far more flexible and dynamic in your body for life. You will not need to be continuing to come back for treatments over and over to maintain your flexibility especially if you incorporate some yoga or massage into your life for your overall health. But… you may want to! People who get Rolfed tend to LOVE it and having some regular sessions throughout the year can be fantastic. The Rolfing 10 series is a lifetime overhaul of accumulated tension since childbirth. An individual is likely only to go through this realignment but a couple of times in their entire life. It is unique, special and transformative.
