What is Rolfing®? | Wise Body Solutions

Rolfing® is an effective holistic approach to lengthening connective tissue that helps patients identify and change habits and behaviors which drive imbalances in the body or in the connective tissue or in the fascia. This can lead to long-term sustainable changes in posture, movement patterns, and overall well-being.

With regular sessions of Rolfing®, patients can experience improved flexibility, reduced pain, increased energy levels, better posture, improved breathing capacity, and greater emotional awareness.

Wise Body Solutions offer high-quality Rolfing® services and can help you achieve a healthier, pain-free lifestyle with exceptional care. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.

How Is Rolfing® Different Than Massage?

Rolfing and massage therapy are two different types of bodywork treatments that can be used to help alleviate pain, improve posture, and increase range of motion.

While both treatments involve manipulating the body’s tissues, they have distinct differences.

Massage therapy

Massage therapy is focused on muscle bellies. During a massage session, clients are typically unclothed, and oil or lotion is used to help reduce friction as the therapist kneads and rubs the muscles. The goal of massage therapy is to create an overall sense of relaxation to reduce muscle tension.


Rolfing, on the other hand, involves a series of sessions designed to lengthen connective tissue or fascia and also enhance body awareness and flexibility while reducing pain. We methodically address each area of the body, focusing on alleviating tension and restriction in the connective tissue promoting improved movement throughout the entire system. Clients typically wear exercise clothing during a Rolfing session and participate a lot more than during a massage therapy session. Additionally, Rolfers focus on helping clients become aware of their habitual behaviors that may be contributing to their ailments in order to help their bodies work more efficiently in the long-term.
