The process of becoming a Certified Advanced Rolfer™ is multi-faceted. It involves learning new skills and exploring the relationship between perception and embodiment. Practitioners’ accumulated knowledge and practical experience form the basis for introducing new perspectives, skills, and techniques that will help practitioners to more easily and efficiently deliver effective results. In this training course a systemic approach to Rolfing theory will cover a broad range of topics. In-depth exploration of the Principles of Rolfing SI, and Rolfing taxonomies (Structural, Functional, Psychobiological, Energetic, Geometrical) will be applied to the tasks of creating individual sessions and series of sessions from an advanced frame of reference. The course takes place over 24 class days (168 hours).
The class includes lectures, demonstrations, practicums, delivering a series to a client, and exchanging a series with a class partner. An emphasis will be placed on hands-on exploration and skill development. Supervision during palpation practicums, and while working with class partners and clients, will address refinement of touch and easing limiting body-use habits. Receiving work that is essential to improving the Rolfers’ own structure and function is an important part of the class. This supports greater ease in working and easier interventions with clients. Supervised sessions with classroom clients and partners will help practitioners develop their ability to assess and address the essential and specific needs of their clients.
The following will be applied to assessment, strategy formation and delivery of a series of Rolfing SI:
- 10-series review
- How to design and practice client-centered, non-formulaic Rolfing sessions or series
- Functional anatomy and fascial architecture maps
- Biomechanics as an exploration of how things work, both specifically and in relationship to the rest of the system,
including: myofascial, ligamentous, and articular considerations in the application of skilled techniques
- Creating more effective therapeutic relationships with clients
- Techniques to improve the Rolfer’s self-awareness and expand her/his skills in perception
- Focus on the body mechanics of the Rolfer with the goal of creating more ease while working
Expanding and refining the range of touch the Rolfer can apply to better match the needs of the client.
