What is Rolfing?

The aim of Rolfing is to
re-establish the natural alignment of the human body.

Rolfing, or Structural Integration is a holistic body therapy. It helps to re-establish elasticity and lubrication to sticky and viscous fascia tissue and to develop an upright posture.

In a series of ten sessions, Rolfers support their clients in improving their posture and movement patterns.

The holistic and supportive view of Rolfing, together with its holistic human-centered approach enables a wide range of Rolfing applications.

This ranges from prevention, better performance and pain therapy to a greater general well being and better perception of one's environment.

Are you already familiar with Rolfing?

How does it work?

Rolfing is based on a number of principles and focuses on the individual needs of each client. Alongside the treatment of the fascia, attention is also paid to learning exercises and movements.

Treatment

Each session starts with a short conversation, while the first intake session always starts with an intake interview. During the intake session it is my wish to answer all of the issues that arise.

Professionality

Who is Janco Volk?

"In the beginning of 2011 I graduated from The European Rolfing Association in Munich, Germany.

I became a Rolfing practitioner because I believe in the manual healing method and the holistic approach to the body.

I like the fact that it is not dogmatic, but orientated on the individual’s needs."

Rolfing and emotions

At one time or another, we all have held our breath in a frightening situation or tensed up under stress. If this only happens occasionally, the body is less likely to hold on to a specific gesture.

scar tissue

Rolfing as a scar tissue treatment

Usually scars are ignored and stored in the subconscious or in the unconscious.

The scar treatment itself does not hurt, to the contrary, it creates often a pleasant experience.

With time, the tension will decrease and people will experience more sensitivity. As a result, the scar will be belonging more to the body.

A balanced scar tissue can benefit:
motor system
self-perception
emotions

Frequently Asked Questions

Q.
Is Rolfing advisable during pregnancy?
A.

Yes, I treat after the fifth month of pregnancy. Sessions are also good after pregnancy to get back in shape.

Q.
Are there contraindications?
A.

If you feel ill, of course you should consult your general practitioner. Rolfing is not suitable for certain conditions, such as inflammations and tumors.

Q.
Does my insurance cover Rolfing sessions?
A.

Depending on the insurance company and the type of package you have. Around 50-75% are covered, and therefore reimbursed. If you call your insurance, they mostly don’t know Rolfing. They have to know that I work with VBAG (as beroepsorganisatie) and that I do have an agb-code.

Q.
Does Rolfing make sense for children?
A.

Rolfing can also help young people with a variety of problems. Sessions for children are usually shorter and time in-between sessions are longer.

Q.
How many sessions do I need?
A.

This depends on your personal goals. To release specific tensions at least temporarily, 1 to 3 sessions can suffice. However, if you want a lasting change in your overall wellbeing, the European Rolfing Association e.V. (ERA) recommends the classic 10-session series that Dr. Ida Rolf developed, in which each session builds upon the progress achieved in the previous one.

Q.
Are the benefits of Rolfing sessions long-lasting?
A.

If you ask individual clients about Rolfing, it depends, among other aspects, on how well they can engage with their own body and the changes. Apart from the manual work with the fascia, Rolfing is also about refining the client’s body awareness and replacing unhealthy movement patterns through healthier ones. The newly refined body awareness allows clients to quickly identify and correct returning old patterns, even after the series have been completed.

Q.
What is special about Rolfing?
A.

Rolfing is holistic, process oriented body work. Dr. Ida Rolf called her work “Structural Integration” and developed a series of ten sessions that build upon one another systematically.The Rolfer always takes the entire body, as well as structural and functional relationships into account. During 10 sessions (10-session series) the entire fascia network of the body is addressed – with the goal of aligning it ideally in relation to gravity.Rolfing differs from other methods because it takes gravity and its importance for our wellbeing into account.Ida Rolf recognized early on that gravity plays an essential role as an organizing element for body structure, movement coordination, special perception, and even human expression. (About Rolfing, Rolfing and Fascia)

Q.
What happens during a Rolfing session?
A.

Every session begins with a short observation phase. The Rolfer asks the client to stand, to breathe deeply, to walk a few steps, or to sit down, for example. Then the client lies on a padded table, similar to a massage table.The Rolfer delicately works on the fascia in a specific body area while applying precise pressure.The client supports the effect through active movements and thereby also learns new movement patterns. Old habits that have a lasting effect on wellbeing are thus slowly eliminated.

Echt wat heerlijk om rechtop te kunnen lopen! En ik voel zoveel meer, en intuïtiever. Ik was net piano aan het spelen, en ik hoorde gewoon welke noten ik moest spelen. Normaal gaat dat niet zo snel.

Janco message

From disease to ease

"I think there are many lenses through which you can look at a person, or at a body; for example holistic, integrative, structural and functional; or the liquid body and the biomechanical body. This complexity makes it a bit more difficult to understand things, but also more interesting, and to me it is actually the only way that makes sense.

Structural Integration work is physical, but can also be psychological (history in the tissue, feeling in the past, becoming aware of emotional tension, stiffness and stress, and holding of breath).

Rolfing should feel good, relaxing, and releasing, and also have a wellness effect, next to reducing pain, creating efficiency in a more integrated body. 

The work should never feel painful, but sometimes can be on an edge."
