It takes about 15 muscles to smile, 50 to frown, and 148 to save a curbside couch from life in a landfill. Soothe sympathetic sinews with today's Groupon: for $55, you get one 90-minute rolfing session at Anchorage Rolfing (a $125 value).
In 90-minute sessions, Anchorage Rolfing owner and certified practitioner Brett Thomson Linder reaches deep tissue in a mending massage that seeks to balance and realign the body. This hands-on, holistic approach works through the corpus’s web of connective tissue to straighten sagging postures and reposition misaligned anatomy. Especially useful for rehabilitating injuries incurred while racing to beat neighborhood children to the ice-cream truck, rolfing may also help soothe pain from athletic or strenuous lifestyles. During each session, the practitioner frequently seeks client feedback on sensations and diagnoses movement restrictions. Clients should wear comfortable clothing in preparation for the intense bodywork, which, unlike traditional massage, aims to make lasting, structural changes to the body.
