Rolfing Ten Series-Session 5

Dec 7, 2007
In the fifth-hour session it is going to be more obvious where the girdles are inhibited. The sleeve is more at ease and the deeper structures can be observed and addressed.

The three planes of movement of the structure and tissue have to be addressed to enable a deeper sense of the contralateral relationship to emerge. The fluid contra-lateral movement that is most advantages to us a humans are experinced when all three planes have been released and integrated. The way that the two girdles communicate through the core is going to be examined so that fluid contra lateral movement can manifest in gait. Session five: Support/lPalintonicity (5-6-7) Upper pole of Axial complex. "Congruence between segments precedes higher order. When the lines of transmission are eased, they give way to palintinos."

The main goals are to create more space in the core, enable more lumbar freedom in flexion and extension, and initiate a visceral release. Attention to working with the drifts in the tissue of the anterior torso will help to resolve asymmetry in the tissue of the thorax. To create more space in the core assess x,y,z restrictions on the core by working with the primary contributors of tilt and shift in both girdles. Lengthen what need's to be more vertical, derotate that which need's less rotation, and fluff what has become flat.

The shoulder girdle may need to be more differentiated to further normalize breathing, the psoas may need to be lengthened and or quadriceps released at attachment to ease lumbars. The drift's in the lumbars are the same drift's in the psoas and quadratus. Assess if LDH is short in back and address psoas and quadratus lumboram to de-rotate tissue and create space.

If torso is short in front, release forces in the rectus abdominus that impinge on core space and function. A short rectus attachment in front can pull ribs to narrow or wide so assess if ribcage is more inspiration or expiration fixed and work with the drifts in the direction of correction to further decompress the ribs. The back work should continue to consider side bends from anterior aspect and breathing from a posterior one.

The indirect diaphram release can be completed in this session and work's well because of ity's direct relationship to the core. The client on their side gives the hands of the practitioner access to thoracic inlet and cerebral crus and falx diaphragm's. With a subtle gamma touch the practitioner can resource the client from the outside while the client meet's the rolfer from the inside. The breath should be expansive and exploratory. Neck work will also be in anterior compartment with emphasis on congruence of movement and relationship to the core. A Pelvic lift or pull will finish.
