In Rolfing, we have a process of tracking the body in space. Most often, it is around the joints of our body. I will position your body to be in optimal balance and I will ask you for movement. Often, I will ask you for a knee bend - for you to allow your knees to float forward while your tail reaches back, sinking into your feet, letting your feet open up to the ground. Then I will ask you to push the earth away to stand up. My hands will be on a certain joint or tissue space, guiding the soft tissue in the position of this new balance. This process “grounds” the system into the new experience of your body. It is an opportunity for your brain and your entire neural network to recognize the new pattern we established during the soft tissue work on the table. We repeat it until you have the felt sense of the newly ordered balance, until you feel in your awareness the ‘ahhhh’ of more space, ease, lightness and integration.
We are facilitating a change in your habitual way of being. We are anchoring in your body memory the knowing that “THIS IS ME NOW.” So then, when you are in gravity living your life, you can access this new pattern again and again, initiating a long-term shift toward increased alignment and freedom.
You are living in the process of Becoming You each new moment of every day!
