Robert Toporek, ADVANCED CERTIFIED ROLF PRACTICIONER SINCE 1975​

Reinforce: From lower body, to major joint and head and neck, these sessions will work to realign and remove any added tension since your last sessions
Abdomen: Opens and lengthens the rest of the front body. Covers hips to chest and deeper work including the front of the neck. Clients who tend to slump forward at the shoulders or hips, find this to be a primary session that helps.
9 months or more after completing the 10 basic Rolfing sessions, you may continue your alignment journey with Advanced Rolfing Sessions 11-14. 
Head and Neck: Often referred to as the "putting on the head" session this session is largely a shoulders up session. Shoulders, neck, and head will be worked into balance as well as arms when needed.

Session 6: Extending Yourself

Sides of the Body: Focuses on the sides of the body from ankle to armpit. Helps to balance the body from front to back and begins to transition the work from surface to deeper fascial work. 
Upper Body: This session is beginning wrap-up, doing any last major work and working across joints to reintegrate the body.

Session 3: The Many Sides of Life

Session 5: Power and Confidence

Lower Body: Balancing the lower body. Removing imbalances in large muscle that tend to decrease both verticality of the spine and structural balance.

Session 1: The Essence of Life

Connecting the Body: The final session in the series is about closing with a balancing of surface tissues. Session is a light full-body session that releases tensions from surface layers and provides a sense of order for the body.

Session 9: Self-Esteem

Legs and Feet: First step towards rebuilding support in the legs. Working below the knee, restoring motion between the bones of the feet, tuning up the arches, and starting to rebalance how the body rests on the feet.
