Rolfing® Structural Ingegration, usually just called Rolfing, is a type of bodywork used to ease chronic pain and physical discomfort through improved posture.
Rolfing is often misclassified as a type of deep tissue massage. It is true that Rolfing does look like massage, is usually done on a massage table, and does often reach the deeper layers of tissues, it is not simply a form of massage. Rolfing focuses on helping the connective tissue (fascia, which holds our bodies together and upright) ease and reintegrate, to allow the body to move toward how the body is designed to work best, in harmony with the constant pull of gravity, and to use the least amount of energy.
Rolfing also carries the tag of "painful". It is true that the Rolfers™ who were trained as Rolfing SI was developing could perform work that was painful. However, Rolfing has developed since then, and the work is generally not painful. In fact, many people fall asleep while the work is being done.
