A friend of mine told me about "Rolfing" & how effective it was for him in relieving the back pain he'd suffered with for years. He claimed that no other therapy compared with the results he'd attained thru Rolfing. Him & his wife swear by it now.

It's some kind of soft tissue manipulation thing, aint it?

Hey CraigCo & atalose,

I first found out about from the book: "Reach For The Rainbow - Advanced Healing for Survivors of Sexual Abuse" by Lynee D Finney, J.D., M.S.W

Towards the end of the book there is a section about getting back in touch with your body and lists several types of massage/body work:

"Rolfing is a technique created by Ida Rolf, a Ph.D in organic biochemistry. Treatment consists of ten sessions of massage and pressure, each focusing on a different area of the body. Rolfing is designed to shift the fascia, the fibrous tissues around the muscles, in order to release physical and emotional patterns lockied in the body. Rolfing improves flexibility and posture, People have experienced vivid memories and strong repressed emotions with this technique. Although some people have reported wonderful expereinces with rolfing and I have been told that it should not be painful, enough people have reported feeling physical pain with this technique that I am wary of it and would prefer a more gentle alternative."

Oy Vey, that was long! But maybe you get the gist......

Here is a link to the Feldenkrais Method (actually comparing the two, Rolfing & Feldenkrais:)

truth,

I have participated in Breath-work and each time experienced relaese of feelings and emotion about things from my past that just "came up" during the session.

There should be lots of info about it on the web. I recommend it.
