Rolfing is a method of hands-on body work and movement training that helps people to have better posture, fewer aches and pains, great flexibility and more energy. Rolfing is named after American biochemist Dr Ida Rolf who developed the method in the 1960’s.

It is a system of body education and soft tissue manipulation that is designed to bring the body into good alignment.

In order to restructure the body, a Rolfing practitioner presses firmly on various points using fingers, knuckles and elbows to help restore joint function, ease pain and speed up healing.

If anyone has had this treatment I would love to hear from them as it is not something I have seen available in the UK until now.



  1. I experienced a series of rolfing treatments from a great practitioner who was working in London during the 1980s. It formed part of my personal quest to gain relief and control over lower back problems (I was in my 20s at the time). Rolfing was a valuable and helpful experience for me, if painful at times.
    I’m now in my 50s, and my back and body has never felt better. I am currently in a 4-year yoga teacher training programme which I have undertaken for personal development rather than to become a teacher.
