What is Rolfing®?

 

Rolfing® is a team process in which I am your coach and therapist. Your job is to become more aware of how you use your body and refine your relationship with it to create healthier habits that work more efficiently and easily without pain. My job is to coach you into this while simultaneously doing manual fascial work to help you release old patterns of movement that are no longer useful. The learning part happens naturally, and most people really just notice the fact that it feels great to have my hands working on them for an hour and a half. 

 

The manual work is done largely on a massage table through soft or partial clothing. It is gentle yet deep work to release stuck fascia, which is connective tissue that is around and within every part of your body. This includes muscles, nerves, organs, arteries, ligaments, tendons….. everything. Although I work very deeply, I follow the speed your body wants to let go and so it does not hurt. The point is not to make you forever dependent on me, but rather to have you need me less and less and eventually perhaps not at all. It is an empowering process that Ida Rolf developed as a way to help people “reach their full human potential.”

A few of the many benefits people have experienced from Rolfing® are reduced pain, increased flexibility, an enhanced sense of body awareness, a feeling of being taller as they feel decompressed, improved posture, increased energy for daily life or athletics, and other parts of life falling into place more easily. 

I also offer private yoga sessions which can be linked to the Rolfing® work or done independently as a different route to get out of pain. 

"Finding Meghan was a true blessing and gift for my body and mind since our introduction this spring.  I've been an avid athlete, competitive trail racer and professional fisherman/boat captain most of my life until six years ago when I had a major show stopping injury.  The following two years of surgeries and physical therapy I was left on my own and as far as general medicine was concerned "I was fixed".  Unfortunately the amount of pain I was continuously suffering from placed me far from feeling healed.  I've been struggling with a major SI problem, oddly a thing that no one in nearly five years could pinpoint.  Due to the high activity in my profession it became all I could do just to "maintain function", let alone enjoy my time off in having an active lifestyle.  I tried numerous Doctors, Rolfers, Chiropractors etc with no avail.  Nothing worked, until I met Meghan.  Her wisdom of the body and its healthy state of being is by far the best I have ever experienced.  Through patience and guidance she was able to get me on track quite quickly.  Being able to not just "rectify the immediate problem" but to educate me on what I can do physically and mentally to assist in my own recovery process was priceless.  Meghan has brought me to a level where I have not been in more than six years, I am happy to say I am pain free.  I definitely recommend Meghan to anyone looking to get their life back!"

"I live an active life and as a result have had many minor injuries that I had not really paid attention to until last year. I ski and hike for my jobs so I need my body to function properly and last year I could barely walk without pain. I didn’t know much about rolfing but decided to give it a try. Meghan was the perfect fit!  Her practice is in Girdwood and she is also a skier/climber and understands injuries associated with these activities. She definitely helped me understand what was happening with my body and why I was experiencing pain. The actual rolfing resulted in immediate pain relief but what I truly appreciated was the integration into my everyday life so I stop making the same mistakes. She retrained me to do simple things like how to sit, walk, and even breathe. I absolutely recommend Meghan Seifert!"
