While Rolfing SI is a strategy to work the whole body, single sessions can be effective, and a taste-test of what is possible. In targeting specific areas of concern, a single session can be of immediate relief and serve to physically prepare the way to future sessions.
For “first-timers”, a series is the very best opportunity to reach a long-lasting plateau. If you have only one session and try to “fix everything”, you will likely be disappointed, and will not have been Rolfed, in my opinion. You will have had “some work.” Yet, in a single, I do my best to attend to your goals, so you can decide for yourself whether to continue, or walk away satisfied.
What a session looks like:
1. We talk first and I ask you for simple movement, so we can see what is afoot. And what is a leg, ha ha. We discuss what you feel, and what you’d rather feel. We strategize each session in this way.
2. We go right into the bodywork, which can be managed lying down, sitting, standing or in motion. Almost all of this is “hands on” and all more interactive than passive.
3. There are a few closure techniques in an easy integrative “grounding” process, which can calm the nervous system and prepare the body to keep the changes.
A health form and waiver are filled out before a first session; payment and scheduling take place after each. Invoices can be provided by email after a session in case of reimbursement from some health care plans. I do accept cash, check, credit cards, Venmo and Paypal.
Single Sessions can be appropriate for most clients who have already received a full Ten Series. Use these as maintenance work, (or a new 3- or 5- or 10-Series). You’ll probably know what you’ll need after your first series, as it arises.
Call to schedule, or to ask any questions you may have.
