- $49 for one 60-minute Rolfing session ($100 value)
Certified Rolfers Scott and Carolyn Burd of The Rolfing Burds ease aches and pains with holistic, hands-on Rolfing therapies that manipulate the body’s fascia, or connective tissues. After a short intake, in which clients describe their physical challenges and goals, Rolfers analyze bodies’ structures to identify factors responsible for stress, strains, injuries, or difficulty landing triple axels on rollerblades. As patients recline on a table, experienced hands stretch, lengthen, and loosen muscles and connective tissues, improving posture, easing pain, and restoring freedom of movement. Rolfers may incorporate movement into the treatment, and may coach clients on proper posture for standing, sitting, and walking in order to avoid future problems and prepare them for finishing school. While adjustments often feel pleasurable, clients may experience some discomfort during the treatment.
Appointments end with a reassessment of bodies that helps clients to gauge the progress they’ve made and decide how to continue improving their musculature. After the treatment, many clients feel energized and relaxed, and they may experience further relief from pain over the next few months as bodies adjust to the treatment. Clients should wear running or yoga shorts, swim trunks, and a sports bra for women, and, as with negotiating a price for rescuing a billionaire who’s hanging from a cliff, they should wait one to three weeks between sessions for maximum effectiveness.
Though The Rolfing Burds sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
The Rolfing Burds
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.
