Two thousand years ago, Marcus Aurelius encouraged his subjects to “stand up straight, not straightened.” While some historians believe he was conversing metaphorically, others believe the Roman emperor was speaking anatomically: people with healthy postural muscles don’t need to think about standing up straight; it comes naturally.
Melissa Dailey, a Certified Rolfer™ Practitioner at the Antioch College Wellness Center, sayd:
“Poor alignment results in a plethora of biomechanical
problems (…) and Rolfing® is a method that brings a person’s
body back into proper alignment. It’s a way to restore one’s
natural standing posture to a straight plumb line.”
