The Rolfing Ten-Series is a program for balancing the body. Each session has certain goals and areas of the body to be addressed, while still attending to the larger goals of the client. The first three sessions work on superficial layers of the body, softening and opening the outermost layers. The next four sessions work with deeper structures reorganizing the postural muscles in individual sections, derotating and vertically aligning the body. The last three sessions work to integrate the whole body, creating an overall experience of increased movement with less stress.

Most clients receive work in their undergarment. Briefs are best for men: traditional panties and bra work well for women. If you are not comfortable with this stage of undress, two piece bathing suit or a pair of short,cotton gym shorts is a good choice. We can work with a variety of clothing, just keep the following in mind: ・You must be comfortable. Unlike massage, Rolfing requires you to get up from the table and walk around periodically. ・Clothing should not pinch or bind. If you can lie on the table and pull one knee to your chest without resistance, you are in good shape. ・Clothing should allow us to view and work your upper legs, mid-back and neck. [What Not to wear] ・ Fragrance. Many clients are highly-sensitive to smells. Even pleaasant ones. Sorry to ask, but please refrain from wearing perfume or cologne when you come for a session. ・Moisturizer,lotion or oils. Lotion on your skin makes it difficult to manipulate tissue layers effectively. The day of your session, it is helpful if you refrain from applying any type of moisturizer (or oil, especially) that does not completely absorb into your skin.
