Why Rolfing works

Dr. Ida Rolf developed a hands-on approach capable of going beyond yoga postures reaching deeper layers of the body. The Rolfing method rehydrates fascial adhesions to restore the structural tensegrity of the human body. Dr. Ida Rolf’s studies in osteopathic medicine and hath yoga shaped her pioneering method of Rolfing.

When confronted with pain whether physical or emotional,  muscle fibers shorten and the highly innervated fascia contracts to protect organs and other vial structures. The body can remain in a state of protection long after the original source of pain is gone. Overtime, compensation patterns in our posture and the way we move leads to chronic tension. Rolfing restores the body by releasing the adhesions from head to toe.

The slow deep pressure used in Rolfing wakes up the highly dense sensory nerve endings within the network of fascia. This sensory “waking up” can function as a gateway to embodiment. Becoming aware of our habitual holding patterns allows for new patterns to develop. Other therapies often neglect important core structures like the diaphragm, pelvic floor, or thoracic inlet. Rolfing  follows the osteopathic lineage which recognizes and treats the whole body as one unified system.

What to expect

Your session will start with a structural body reading and light touch palpation to identify the primary restrictions.  The pressure of contact varies from light to deep pressure. I have trained in Craniosacral Therapy , visceral (organ) manipulation, peripheral nerve gliding, and bone unwinding. These various techniques may be incorporated into your Rolf session.

Rolfing is typically done wearing underwear/bra. However, It is more important for you to feel comfortable and dress accordingly to your own comfort level.  I recommended lose fitting clothing that is not overly constricting around waist line and bra tops that have access to the back(not thick sports bras). 

 


The cost of each session is $110.00. Sessions range from 75 to 90 Mins.

Sessions for children are typically shorter and are charged at a reduced rate $70.00

Rolfing Options


The Rolfing series is a series of 10 sessions that have specific structural goals for each session that release myofascial adhesions from head to toe in the first 7 sessions. The goal of the last 3 sessions is to integrate the changes through fine-tuning movement patterns for longer-lasting results.  The 10 series results in improved postural alignment and greater ease of movement.

Spot treatment sessions are an alternative option for individuals who are not interested in the full Rolfing 10 series. A spot treatment may look like a single treatment or multiple sessions that focus on specific areas that need immediate attention. 

 

is Rolfing Painful?

You may have heard that Rolfing is painful. It is true that old school Rolfers worked rather aggressively. The Ida Rolf Institute no longer trains with this out dated method.  Keeping with the current research, Rolfers flow between slack and tension to have the dual effect of challenging restrictions without over activating the nervous system. 

Rolfers still uses deep pressure, but aims for “feel good pain”. In areas of the body that are sensation to touch,  I can work at the surface level with peripheral nerves and still be effective.  I value good communication, if needed, please request a lighter contact. More pain does not equal better results.

Taylor is wonderful. We are steadily working through my chronic pain. I highly recommend Taylor for a more gentle rolfing experience, especially if you have a condition that can be easily aggravated at times.

Taylers practice involves a series of delicate and at times intense touches throughout the body. I felt pent up energy and pain move out of particular areas of my body. The entire experience left me feeling pain free and energized. Thank you Tayler for your blessing me with your hands 🙏

I didn't have any serious pain or injury to address but I definitely feel a huge difference in my body after Tayler offered cranial sacral therapy. During the session (and long after), I felt completely relaxed and comfortable. Definitely something EVERYONE needs to experience at least once. This may be the healing you've been looking for! (:

Taylor is awesome! If you’re in chronic pain or if you have severe muscle pain/arthritis make sure to check out rolfing. I have been going for weeks and continue to see Taylor even after our 10 standard rolfing sessions because it really works! She will tell you what to expect each session and also integrate any aches/pain relief that you’re having in the moment. I can’t say enough good things about how much better your body will feel after 1 session and how it will help the way you move and connect with your muscles. Give her a call or schedule online!

Tayler is welcoming and creates a beautiful space for relaxation. I had cranial sacral done with her, and while it was subtle and light touch, i felt new movement and so restored after the session. She makes sure you know what to expect as well!
