May 19 was the 120th anniversary of the birth of Dr. Ida P Rolf. This video includes Dr Rolf talking off screen. She guides the practitioner (Peter Melchior) on where to work. Her ability to perceive what the client’s body needs is impressive.
Rolfing can be like making your bed in the morning. You think you’re going to get by without pulling that bed apart, so you pull up this cover and the next cover. When you get all the covers puffed up, you’ve got nine ridges running across the bed. Now you’ve got to go to a deeper layer and organize the deeper layer, and make your bed on top of that. Then you’ve got a made bed. Well it’s the same with the body: you’ve got to organize those deeper layers.
