The Three Phases of the Modular format

Phase I: Foundation of Rolfing®

  • Duration: 3 workshops, 5 days each
  • Topics: living anatomy, movement, and touch
  • Phase I is concluded by an admissions process consisting of an anatomy exam and an interview.
  • After this first training phase you have the necessary foundation for the treatment strategy as well as structural and functional analysis.

Phase II: “Embodiment of the Rolfing® process”

  • Duration: 36 days within 12 to 14 months
  • Topics: Since each session in the traditional series developed by Dr. Ida Rolf consists of both a structural and a functional topic, you learn the series’ theoretical background, which is also referred to as a “recipe”. You observe the 10-session series and have a lot of time to practice. Furthermore, you conduct the 10 sessions under supervision on your fellow students as well as experience them yourself.
  • Mid-term and final interviews are held with the students.

Between Phase II and III…

…two mentoring sessions are held (subject to additional fees) with a Certified Advanced Rolfer™ who is qualified to be a mentor.

  • Duration: 2 to 4 hours each, depending on how many students participate in each session
  • Procedure: You work in a group with up to 4 students
  • Topics: Experienced Rolfers™ respond to your specific needs and work through topics that you have not yet completely understood.

Phase III: “Practical Application – Working with Clients ”

  • Duration: 28 days within 6 months
  • Topics: You apply the knowledge and skills you have acquired thus far. Under supervision, you develop treatment plans and conduct the treatment series with at least two clients. Structural changes during the series are documented with photos and the results are evaluated and discussed.
  • Mid-term and final interviews are held with the students.

After Phase III

… the basic Rolfing Training is complete. You are recognized as a Certified Rolfer™.
… you can work independently in a private practice.
… during your first year of working in your own practice you will be required to attend an additional three mentor sessions, concluding with the six-day Supervision workshop.
