Over time and with continued physical strain, misalignment can occur within the body and ultimately interfere with proper coordination, posture and overall health. Named for its inventor, Dr. Ida Rolf, Eden Massage Rolfing treatments are a form of deep tissue massage with the goal of reintegrating surrounding tissue (fasciae) with muscle, to eliminate pain and facilitate movement.
For Physical or Psychological Strain
Since Rolfing is used to treat stress as well as injuries, many people in Fairbanks can benefit from this remarkable therapy. Whether you are plagued by persistent body fatigue induced by physical or psychological strain, suffer from chronic conditions such as migraines and painful muscle aches, or if you are an athlete seeking to improve coordination and agility, we invite the people of Fairbanks to visit our massage center for professional treatment and relief.
Three stages of treatment
The initial Rolfing sessions focus on loosening the surface layers of connective tissue to prepare for a structural reorganization and rebalancing of the muscles. Eden Massage’s licensed Rolfing practitioners begin with the arms, chest and diaphragm and move downward to the lower back and upper legs.
The second stage of treatment continues with deep tissue massage that focuses on the legs and identifies their interrelated functions that affect the head, shoulders and hips.
The third stage of Rolfing treatment encompasses the entire body from the head down to the pelvis including the deep inner tissue of the legs. The entire physical network is integrated into the final stage of treatment to achieve optimal balance, coordination and flexibility.
