"Some individuals may perceive their losing fight with gravity as a sharp pain in their back, others as the unflattering contour of their body, others as a constant fatigue. Those over 40 may call it old age. And yet all these signals may be pointing to a single problem, so prominent in their own structure, that it has been ignored; they are off balance. They are at war with gravity."
Ida P. Rolf, Ph.D.

Rolfing works to establish the relationship of the human body toward structural change and postural balance within the field of gravity in a series of ten hands-on sessions.

Hal & Sonya Milton are both Certified Advanced Rolfers and Movement consultants.

How does a body become off balance?
The human body is a miraculous construction of fluid and dynamic interrelationships. This finely tuned instrument has a "plastic" quality and can change shape to adapt to its environment. Stress, injuries, habits, all of these leave a mark in the structure as the body works to integrate them into the system. After years in a pattern, the body becomes rigid as connective tissue thickens and hardens around points of stress. Then any attempt to stand up straight becomes filled with effort. Psychological trauma affects structure in much the same way. Tightening against pain, holding the breath to block emotions, slumping—all are patterns that become physically locked in the body.
