Rolfers rarely use oils, preferring focused pressure over gliding strokes. And the first treatment begins with a period of observation, where the rolfer watches how his or her client stands and walks, A 10-treatment regimen is standard for most, after which the body is allowed to adapt to its new alignment?and the enhanced breathing, flexibility, and coordination that is said to come with it?for anywhere from one month to a year before returning for tune-up sessions.
