How does it feel & last?
Sensations in the area being worked may range from pleasurable warmth to momentary discomfort. At times there may be little sensation at all. How you will feel during Rolfing depends on several factors such as injuries to the area or tension caused by chronic stress.
After Rolfing, people report feeling lighter and better balanced. Movement feels easier, as if the joints have been lubricated. Feelings of well being reflect the body’s higher energy level Chronic discomforts often disappear immediately or soon after the series is completed.
Does Rolfing last and how much does it cost?
|Yes, Rolfing lasts. Photographs show that the changes of the basic Rolfing series are still present many years after the series is complete. On the other hand, as bodies change, and people sometimes have injuries, accidents and stressful times, additional work may be useful.
To the left is a series of photographs of a 60-year-old physician who underwent the 10 sessions. Notice that after 8 months from the completion of his series (the so-called “11th session”), he continued to do show changes in his structure.

Most Rolfers charge session by session, and fees range from $100 to $170 per session, depending on the geographic area and the experience of the practitioner.
