Rolfing Ten Series-Session 6

Jun 28, 2008
In hour 6 the work begins to make another shift in the Rolfing protocol: Palintonicity Adaptability/Support (6-7-8) Core expressing through the lower pole.

This session will complete the leg work of 2-4-6 of support, and complete pelvic work of 4-5-6 of transmission. The support was initiated in the second hour and cyclicly returns bi-session as a focus and goal. Transmission is viewed as a session to session goal and focus when we are finished opening the sleeve.

The potentials initiated in each and every session upto session six have been preparing the body to differentiate making more space and integrate the space in motion. When looking at the back of the body it is important to recognize the posterior reflections of the fifth hour anterior work. The drift's in the tissue flow in the transverse plane or Y axis and thus are a rotational issue in the asymmetry of the thorax.

"Adaptive capacity at the hips precedes order in the spine. Organization in the core and sleeve precedes order in the spine. Order in Axial complex precedes order in the head." The main goals are to balance the pelvic girdle by organizing legs and intra pelvic structures, and free the sacrum and the spine from any remaining drift's and rotations in posterior soft tissue. Establish horizontals in the legs by working the line's of tension to resolve rotations and counter rotations in posterior leg segment's.

The primary tilter's and shifter's are different from left to right side so special attention should be given to working the asymmetry in a way that is congruent. This session literally travel's from the plantar fascia all the way up superficial back line over the calcaneous, gastroc, soleus, knee, hamstrings, rotators, sacro-tuberous and sacro-spinous ligaments. When observing the posterior axial fascia, side bend's with rotations are to be worked in the direction of correction so that the organization in the whole structure from toe to head can emerge. Neck work should be with client supine for mobility and translation in flexion/extension.

Rolfing addresses the osseous component's in the neck by affecting the direction of the tissue in translation, Chiropractic deals with translating the bone with high velocity manipulation, leaving the tissue unaddressed. Seated work is assisted movement through all three functional planes depending on the amount of integration that has occurred thus far so G or G' tendency should be obvious and observed. A deep felt sense of verticality and support are usually experienced when this session is concluded. Pelvic lift or pull will end sixth-hour session.
