Your Pain

The aim of the Rolfing 10 Series is to change posture. However, attitude is unfortunately only rarely a good motivator for change. Usually it is pain and tension that cause people to start looking for change. In Rolfing, however, posture and its change is a measure of success. The posture often shows very clearly where tensions, shortenings and pressure loads have accumulated.

Rolfing 10 Series as a Method

Let’s get back to Anna. She reports knee pain and sporadic gastrointestinal pain, but nothing was ever really found. A pure treatment of the knee with its ligaments and menisci will not bring about any lasting improvement. The interactions are too complex for that and knee pain is actually only a symptom for a shifted statics.

The Rolfing 10 Series will now systematically strive for change in order to reduce the load on the knee in the long term and possibly achieve a relief of the gastrointestinal tract.

That’s it?

The 10 series is finished with the 10th session and actually this cycle is over. Are there more cycles? Definitely, but they don’t consist of a repetition of the 10 series! These cycles arise from a new agreement between Rolfer and the client to work on new goals. There may be references to the 10 series, but often this work is completely detached from it.
