What is The Rolf Method?

The Rolf Method is based on the work of Dr Ida Rolf and has its roots in osteopathy and physical therapy.  It uses deep tissue techniques and movement education, but is not the same as massage.

Rolf practitioners will look at posture and will then work with the fascia or connective tissue.  They are also looking at how the body is aligned in gravity.


How we sit, stand and move is part of who we are.


Our connective tissue is what gives us our basic shape.


Dr. Rolf said that ‘Gravity is the teacher’.
