Dr. Ida Pauline Rolf battled adversity as a woman in the field of science while striving to discover elusive solutions to chronic health problems. Her perseverance paid off, resulting in her eponymous discovery, Rolfing, which manipulates the connective tissues of the body to promote overall health and well-being. Today, The Rolfing Burds is only one of thousands of institutions to continue her legacy. Rolfers knead the soft tissues throughout the body with advanced and unique massage techniques, introducing manifold benefits to the body such as revitalizing energy, restoring lost flexibility, and alleviating pain. The benefits come from aligning the body with gravity's natural pull, which helps the body's natural healing processes work without hindrance.
