Rolfing: a type of Pilates ?

Browsing around on Twitter, I found this article which I consider interesting.

I’m glad that finally we’re talking about Rolfing in Italy.
I have a few details concerning:

- Rolfing is not a type of Pilates

Definitely hope to Rolfing the same notoriety that Pilates has reached in recentyears!

Rolfing is a non-exercise class

The path of Rolfing starts with a cycle of ten individual sessions performed by an operator, the Rolfer.

First, the Rolfer has a prior interview with the client and observes the person’s body upright and moving into space to ”read” the main features.

The session lasts about an hour, takes place with the client lying on a bed and through touching the Rolfer releases restrictions and the motor patterns thatconstrain our fabric in permanent tension.

The sitting was then usually ends with the customer standing in assessing possible changes during the session.

Through touch, the search for a more efficient motor coordination and refinementof self-perception, the Rolfer seeks to promote mental and physical integrationof the customer.

As a pharmaceutical researcher I studied the biochemical mechanisms of drugs on human system. I met the Eastern approach to medicine and I got very interested in body-mind communication until I got certified as a NLP® Practitioner and later as a NLP® Master Practitioner. Then I got certified as a teacher of Beamish Bodymind Balancing® directly fro the co-founder Monica Canducci. I certified as a Certified Rolfer® at the Accademia Italiana del Rolfing®, a school authorized by the European Rolfing® Association and the Rolf Institute® of Structural Integration.
