Rolfing is perhaps one of the best methods for creating balance and structure. While scoliosis is a problem of the spine, the whole structure is implicated. The spinal imbalance affects the arms, legs, pelvis and rib cage as well as the rest of the body. Also the body’s diaphragms are affected by the side bends. Scoliosis side bends cause rotation and compression issues in the thorax, causing an inefficient use of the lungs and heart. This further impairs the body’s optimal performance. Rolfing is designed to systematically open up and create space in the soft tissues of the body which can have a profound influence on the skeletal alignment. Rolfing can provide a valuable resource for helping reverse spinal curvature. Rolfing is also a wonderful way to help pre-teens stay on track and avoid developing scoliosis.
