Realign and restore your body with Rolfing massage at Barkley Massage & Chiropractic in Bellingham, WA. Rolf therapy—also referred to as structural integration and myofascial release—helps to release muscular and emotional tension and bring balance to the body.
What Is Rolfing?
Rolfing is a form of bodywork created by biochemist Ida P. Rolf in the 1940s. It includes deep tissue manipulation techniques that utilize elbows, knuckles, and hands and is often intense. The focus is to transform bound-up fascia—the web-like connective tissue that holds all your bones, muscles, organs, blood vessels, and nerves in place—and create structural changes throughout the entire body.
Long-Term Results, Not Temporary Relief
Massage therapy seeks to provide temporary relief from stress and pain. It also tends to focus only on certain areas of tension without taking into consideration how the work will affect the whole body. Rolf massage recognizes that everything, including muscles, bones, nerves, and organs, are interconnected. Myofascial release work seeks to remove system-wide imbalances and realign and stabilize your entire body for a long time.
Unwind Bound Up Fascia
Gravity and the effects of repetitive motion can cause the fascia to become bound up and congested. This can cause pain, reduce your range of motion, and create blockages that hinder circulation and lymphatic flow.
Give Your Body Freedom Of Motion
The goal is to release tension and create space by elongating the fascia across the entire body. This allows for a freer and more fluid motion during every movement the body performs.
Release Your Body From Painful Conditions
Fascia release can help correct structural imbalances in the body. A series of fascia works can provide long-lasting results for many painful conditions.
