1. Who is Rolfing for?

Rolfing is aimed at anyone who wants to improve posture, coordination and vitality and get rid of tension. Good results are achieved with chronic musculoskeletal disorders as well as postural injuries after trauma or psychological trauma.

Rolfing is also particularly good for people who depend on the functionality of their body - craftsmen, athletes, dancers, artists and singers benefit from increased freedom of movement and performance, sharpened body feel and more vocal volume.

3. How does Rolfing work?

With his fingers, knuckles, fist and forearm, the Rolfer treats the deep layers of muscle fascia, ligaments, tendons and membranes. The tightening, stretching and shifting of these tissues restructures the musculoskeletal system, relieves tension and relieves pain.

As a result, the body finds a more natural, effortless posture with increased freedom of movement and improved body sensation. The results of manual treatment are strengthened by targeted movement training and activation of self-perception.

4. How does Rolfing feel?

For most clients, Rolfing feels good - the slow, melting pressure of the Rolfer solves deep-seated, sometimes decades-old tensions in the tissue. The intensity of the touch varies between subtle and very intense. The range of sensations therefore ranges from soothing pressure to releasing pain. The feeling sometimes depends on how heavily the treated body region is traumatized or strained. The Rolfer inquires with the client continuously about the intensity of the sensation and can adjust it at any time. Many report a feeling of relief and increased freedom of movement immediately after treatment.

5. How many sessions do you need?

A first Rolfing series usually consists of 10 to 13 sessions of 70 minutes, each one to three weeks apart. Before starting treatment, the Rolfer discusses the individual treatment goals with the client, notes the posture and examines movement patterns. Sessions 1 to 7 focus on a different body region. In the subsequent sessions, the Rolfer works mostly to integrate the body into a balanced whole.

6. When are first results to be expected?

Initial results are often noticeable after the first session, but the process of change usually extends well beyond the last treatment appointment. The changes are usually permanent, but individual after-treatments at intervals of a few months consolidate the results.

7. How sustainable are the results?

The changes are mostly permanent. Various factors such as your physical activity, stress levels and continuous practice / training play a role here. Individual after-treatments at intervals of a few months are often useful and consolidate the results.

8. Will your health insurance cover the costs?

Rolfing is a recognized therapy method of complementary medicine. Supplementary insurances usually cover a large part of the costs of a Rolfing treatment. Be sure to check with your health insurance before the first treatment.
