My fourth Rolfing session in Los Angeles shifted gears a little bit. I see a little bit because according to many rolfer’s it is a big shift however I only experienced a slight shift in what was going on.
Supposedly, your first three or Rolfing sessions concentrate more on the aesthetic outer lining of the in connective muscle tissue. And the fourth session begins the more inner core work.
Rolfer’s call this “the active core” and it is the structures that lie closest to the spine at the body’s mid-level (so think areas around the hip). Though I did know that this session was a little different I experience the same sensations of feeling muscles that were once tight (that I didn’t even know were tight), begin to release letting my bones and the muscles themselves almost shift in feel more room was created.
