Logistics of a session :

Number of sessions:

The Basic Rolfing series is 10 sessions. The advanced series is 4-5 sessions . There are times when a session is needed for “first aid” or “a tune up”. You can do a 1-3 session series to see if this process is right for you .

If you had the work from another Rolfer and want to see one of us, that is A-ok . This work is about seeing you and working with you where you are in the moment and identifying the goal of the session.

Time and Timing:

Sessions last typically 50-60 min. Some people prefer 80 – 90 min sessions for an additional fee.

Most often sessions are once a week or every other week. This gives time to assimilate the changes . Sessions can be as close together as twice a week or as far apart as 3-4 weeks.  We always ask that you get the sessions in such a way that does not add stress to your life.
