With over fifteen years of experience in hands-on therapy, Mollie Day practices Rolfing® Structural Integration, along with Visceral Manipulation and CranioSacral Therapy, in New Orleans. Drawing from all three unique techniques, Mollie works to release restricted connective tissues, realign the body, relieve pain and facilitate good health.
Rolfing Structural Integration is a form of bodywork that reorganizes the connective tissues, called fascia. Fascia supports the skeletal system, determines our direction of movement and gives the body its shape.
Fascia permeates the entire body and functions, as we do, under the constant weight of gravity. While gravity holds us here on earth, it also weighs in on our imbalances, affecting our fascia. The results can be chronic strain, lowered vitality and impaired biological and psychological functioning.
Rolfing is distinguishable from other forms of bodywork because it works systematically with fascia. Through a series of Rolfing sessions, the alignment of the body is restored; restricted tissues and compressed joints are relieved; vital energy becomes available to support the body and mind. Movements and overall functioning becomes easier and more enjoyable!
The 10 Rolfing Sessions
Rolfing is typically done in a ten-session series, in which the major segments of the body are released from life-long patterns of stress and misalignment. The “ten series” is based on Dr. Ida P. Rolf’s original inquiry into how to organize the body in gravity. With the foundation of Dr. Rolf’s principles, Mollie Day works inside and outside the ten series, incorporating intervention strategies that reflect the unique needs of each client.
Rolfing is a holistic technique
Changes in structure can impact the whole person, physically, emotionally, and energetically. Ultimately, each client’s individual experience plays a central role in his or her transformation through Rolfing.
Dr. Ida P. Rolf (1896-1979), a biochemist, developed Rolfing over fifty years ago. For more information on Ida P. Rolf, PhD, and Rolfing click here: http://www.rolf.org/
