Rolfing: Tuning Up the Whole Body

More than a massage technique, rolfing helps set all the muscles right instead of focusing on specific regions of the body. See Groupon’s guide to this holistic wellness approach.

A typical rolfing session can feel uncomfortable, even intense, but professionals declare that the relief a person feels after the treatment is worth any pain they may experience during. Following the teachings of their forebear, Ida P. Rolf, rolfers apply deep, sustained pressure throughout the body to manipulate fascia, a plastic-like webbing that covers and connects muscles. The goal is to grant pain relief by aligning the body as a whole, rather than treating only the places that hurt.

Aside from its more intense methods, a few things set rolfing—or structural integration, as it’s more formally known—apart from massage. Clients always keep their underwear on. 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.

Jed Bentley Rolfing

Since everyone experiences life through one medium—their bodies—professional Rolfer Jed Bentley uses his hands-on skills to ensure those bodies are in good working order. As a certified Rolfer, Jed has studied the ways in which all parts of the body are connected, and he knows how to correct ailments with manual adjustments of the fascia—the body's connective tissue. When fascia constricts, it causes bodily pain and poor posture. Once it has been adjusted during a Rolfing session, the body can stand taller and straighter without any additional effort and with less pain. Jed emphasizes that Rolfing addresses emotional troubles as well as physical ones—clients should be open to long-lasting emotional change as well as physical, usually within a few months. Clients who wish to better acquaint themselves with the Rolfing process can peruse the FAQ here.

Customer Reviews

First time being rolfed. Wasn't sure what to expect. Felt improved and relaxed after the session. Will go back.

Very good at what he does & very communicative
Jacqueline F. · May 13, 2017
I've worked with a podiatrist, a physical therapist, and a knowledgeable massage therapist to figure out how to make my feet stop hurting every day. My session with Jed has so far felt the most promising of all these methods. He easily finds my sore spots and is very knowledgeable when I pick his brain for advice and thoughts on what's going on with my body. I bought the 3 session set after my Groupon visit and I'm looking forward to seeing how my feet feel at the end of them!
