Each session starts with a short conversation, while the first "intake session" always starts with an intake interview, in which in addition to getting to know information about one's body history, the person shares his or her individual needs and wishes, and learns about what Rolfing can mean in this. During the “intake session” is my wish to answer all of the issues that arise.
After that, each session starts with a Body-Reading, in which I look at the body and its mutual relationships. At this point, I sometimes ask for simple movements, like for example, walking.
Subsequently, if necessary, we do other exercises while sitting, lying or standing, or we start immediately with the manual treatment on the table.
The quality of the touch is very focused and can go from very light to deep and intense, but should never become painful.
A large part of the treatment is for deep relaxation, but also perception and awareness. The old patterns are not immediately replaced, but other possibilities for movement and body use can be observed and integrated step by step.
At the end of each session the integration (centering, landing) of the client is central. Usually, already after the first session, another body perception can be observed.
A treatment lasts about 80 min.
The periods between the sessions is typically between 1 and 3 weeks, depending on the time needed to process the previous session.
In my opinion, with a distance of more than 3 weeks, the functioning of the process is interrupted. We would be speaking then of separate sessions, which is also possible.
The payment of the sessions can be in cash, but in general I send an invoice, which is paid afterwards.
