WHAT IS ROLFING?
Rolfing – Structural Integration is a way of working with connective tissue on a physical, structural, energetic, and emotional level. It has a long history of happy patients dating back to the mid-20th century, when it was founded by Dr. Ida P. Rolf. A session involves listening to the body with patience to enable the tangled myofascial meridians to unravel and open to their true connected nature again. As Rolfers, we know that the body is self- organizing, but sometimes needs a nudge (movement techniques) or a hug (creating a three dimensional container) to know that the path is safe again. “The unit is disrupted by acute or chronic activities: A twisting of the ankle, a fracture, trauma, or ‘bad’ posture. These are some causes that create fixed patterns of behavior in the body that resist fluidity of movement. “The friction of the flesh interferes with the energy flow that is the essence of life.” – Dr.Ida Rolf. Rolfing improves posture and decreases tension and pain through retraining postural and locomotor systems. The benefits are long lasting after the work is complete. Using a slow and intelligent touch, Rolfing lengthens and reorganizes the body’s connective tissue to allow for freedom of expressions within the 3D plane that we live in. Rolfing is truly a holistic process of perceptual awareness and structural change that is meant to not only improve physical well-being, but also overall wellness. Liz believes a persons blueprint for health can be accessed through Rolfing and can be of service to everyone.
WHAT IS ACUTONICS?
The application of Acutonics® forks is an integrated approach to health care grounded in Oriental medicine, psychology, science, cosmological studies and sound healing principles. This effective non-invasive methodology works with vibratory energy created through sound. The sounds of planetary bodies are brought into the clinical setting through the use of precision calibrated tuning forks, symphonic gongs, and hand chimes. This approach to health and wellness embraces the concept of a musical and undivided universe. A belief found through time, across cultures, and many healing and spiritual traditions, where numerous references cite the power of sound to create, generate, transform, and give birth to new ideas and new consciousness. The sounds of the Universe are brought into health care through the use of precision calibrated planetary tuning forks and symphonic planetary gongs. Acupressure points and chakras provide noninvasive access into these core energy systems within the body. The planets provide musical intervals, archetypes, psychological depth, and correspondences that help us to fine-tune the therapeutic frequencies that are applied to the body.
