Aline Newton Rolfing® Structural Integration

Changing patterns of movement

for a pain-free life


Rolfing® is more than a way of working with muscles and deep connective tissue.

It is a way of changing deep set patterns of posture, movement and tension through manipulation and movement re-education. By releasing the holding patterns in the tissue and nervous system, the root causes of your symptoms, your body can be freed to find an easier, pain-free way to move through your daily activities. Rolfing is an effective approach to address the after-effects of accidents and injuries, for chronic neck, back and joint pain, for poor posture, tension and anxiety. Rolfing can also be a valuable tool for deepening your practice of yoga, martial arts or Tai Chi, as well as for improving athletic performance.
