Rolf Movement® Integration

Rolf Movement® Integration | rolfing | Scoop.it

Towards the end of her life, Dr. Rolf believed that a movement training component would be a valuable adjunct to the structural Ten Series. Currently, approximately 25% of all Rolfers have been certified in Rolf Movement and employ this training as a way of enriching their work.

The purpose of Rolf Movement is to work with the client to identify the movement patterns that promote strain and asymmetry in her system.

Once these patterns are identified, the Rolf Movement practitioner doesn't necessarily seek to change those patterns which have served the client well. Rather the Rolfer offers more economical solutions, ones that promote greater balance and efficiency in the gravitational field.

Like the structural Ten Series, Rolf Movement is taught as a sequence of sessions devoted to specific structural and movement themes.

In a classic movement series, the first session is devoted to exploring breathing patterns and using the breath to promote ease and release holdings in the ribs, lungs and respiratory diaphragm.

Subsequent sessions address movement patterns in the foot, ankle and knee joints, the hip joint, the arms and head and neck. These sessions are normally repeated to access deeper holding patterns and achieve higher levels of order just as structural Rolfers return to the extremities and upper and lower girdles (the shoulder and pelvis) in the latter sessions to more fully integrate structure and function.

While Rolf Movement can be explored by clients who have completed a structural series, it serves equally well as a stand-alone tool for achieving higher levels of self-awareness and body coherence.

Better Posture Through Rolfing

Better Posture Through Rolfing | rolfing | Scoop.it

Incorrect posture can effect many aspects of how you function and feel about yourself. When your musculature and skeletal alignment is out of balance, it can cause nervous system issues, digestive issues, and even effect your mood and self esteem. Physical trauma, repetitive work strain, and a lifetime of poor postural habits can all contribute to creating imbalance in how you stand, walk, and move your body. Rolfing is a style of deep tissue manipulation that is focused on bringing a person's muscles and bones back to their original state of alignment. Working with the deep connective tissue between muscles, Rolfing can correct bad habits of posture, and increase your overall health, physical mobility, and self esteem.

Rolfing: No Longer a Fringe Therapy

Rolfing: No Longer a Fringe Therapy | rolfing | Scoop.it

After eight years with the Philadelphia Orchestra, C.J. Chang, the principal viola, says he "couldn't really play more than 10 minutes without severe pain." Doctors diagnosed an overgrown muscle in his right hand, but neither massage nor ultrasound provided relief. A colleague recommended that Chang try an alternative therapy known as ROLFING. After the fifth or sixth treatment, Chang says, he felt his "whole hand just freeing" and was able to resume his career.

What If Schools Created a Culture of "Do" INSTEAD of a Culture of "Know?"

What If Schools Created a Culture of "Do" INSTEAD of a Culture of "Know?" | rolfing | Scoop.it
Here at Educon yesterday, I had the chance to learn a bit more about design thinking from David Jakes. David's central point was that schools and teachers often get stuck in a "Yeah, but..." mindset when thinking about change.

 

Of course, we'd have to work to take active steps to redefine almost everything about our schools if a culture of "Do" is really going to be possible. 

 

===> Grading will need to change -- from a focus on content mastery to a focus on demonstration of an ability to apply content in novel situations <===
