proprioceptors are essential for movement coordination...

Throughout the whole body are sensory nerves  with receptors which record muscolar tension , pull on tendons, joint compression and the position of the head in relation  to gravity.

These nerves are referred as proprioceptors (“self-receivers”) and are essential for movement coordination and thus transform a stimulus from the external environment into a  nerve impulse to be conducted to a region of the spinal chord or brain  in order to be translated intosensation/movement.

The Rolfer leads the client´s awareness to contracted areas of the body in order to provide easierperception, better coordination with the rest of the physiological structure, economy and efficiencyin performance.

A highly developed kinestetic sense is demanded for an efficient tennis serve or for surgeon´s and musician´s  sophisticated micromotricity while in execution.
