According to the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration, the Rolfing massage is a type of bodywork devised by Dr. Ida P. Rolf to reorganize the fascia: This group of connective tissues is spread throughout the body. Additionally, this type of massage enhances posture and movement.
The Rolf Institute of Structural Integration explains that the body is a system of networks of tissues that surround and support muscles, nerves, bones and organs. The Rolfing massage works on this complex network of connective tissues in order to realign them, release tension and restore balance in the body. This form of massage can also restore energy and flexibility. Moreover, the Rolfing massage can eliminate discomfort and relieve pain.
