Welcome to my Rolfing Austin TX practice, I look forward to working with you! I’m guessing you have some questions; here is some information about the basics of my practice —
If you are a new Rolfing Austin TX client, we will first schedule a free 20-minute phone consultation so we can both ask questions, you can tell me about your goals for our work together, and we can determine if my services are the right fit for you. At the end of that call, if we’ve decided to move forward we’ll get you scheduled on my calendar for your first session.
My work is a unique blend of the modalities I’ve trained in and been influenced by, including Rolfing® Structural Integration, Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychology, and Rolf Movement® Integration. During sessions I use several different tools to aid in treatment, including direct manipulation, movement, visualization, and mindful awareness. In your sessions, you can expect to experience one or more of these methods, and at-home practices may be an important component of your learning and development.
Regardless of the specific work we do in any given session, you can expect a grounding-yet-interactive experience – this is not a place where you’ll simply fall asleep while being worked on. Working with me is an active experience, where you are an important collaborator in your transformation.
A typical Rolfing session lasts approximately 75 minutes.
Rolfing Austin TX is done differently than massage, in that I need to visually assess your structure and movement before, during, and after the session to better understand your structural resources and challenges. Draping sheets are not generally used (unless you’re cold), and typical attire for a session is underwear. For men, briefs of some sort work best. For women bra and underwear (please avoid thongs or sheer garments), a two-piece swimsuit, or shorts and a sports top are appropriate. Most important for both men and women is for you to feel comfortable during the session, so wear what you feel works best for you.
Please note that 24-hour notice is required for cancellations. Clients are responsible for the full session fee for appointments canceled with less than 24-hours notice or for “no-show” appointments.
