Do I have to commit to 10 sessions
of Rolfing® S.I.
in order to get any benefits?
No, you do not have to sign up for ten sessions. Although some people experience significant benefits from just one Rolfing® session, most lasting change is accomplished through a series of three to thirteen appointments. It is important to discuss your individual situation, your goals, time frame and limitations with your Rolfer™, so that a plan can be formed that works for you.
It is not a good idea to tell your Rolfer that you will complete the 10-series and then quit part way through. This is because Rolfing is a process of reorganizing the body, so stopping the work without sufficient closure can sometimes leave a client feeling less coordinated than before the start of the series. Better to be honest about your commitment level, so that your Rolfer can make the best use of your time together.
The most common schedule for receiving the Rolfing 10-Series is once a week. Depending on your circumstances, it might make sense to receive two sessions a week, or only once a month. Discuss your time frame with your Rolfer to ensure that you will receive the maximum benefits of the work.
