Rolfing and Sport
What progressively stiffens the body? What alters its natural balance?
Why are so many of us structurally deficient, despite exercising or practicing sports?
The causes can be various: postural errors, injuries, diseases, excessive exercise, unsuitable applications and models, emotional disorders, toxins.....
When the structure of the body collapses and dysfunctions and malaise hinder it in its daily expressions, we are forced to give ourselves a little attention.
The Force of Gravity
Gravity is the force that affects every aspect of life on this planet.
It continuously compresses, extends, flexes, writhes our physical structure. When in conflict with it, sensory stimuli such as chronic fatigue, injuries, inhibitions in movements indicate mis-being.
The importance of knowing the body
In the human being the sense of movement is innate: it comes from the continuous adaptation to the acceleration of this planet (40 m/sec. circa). When tensions rise spasmodically in an area of the human body, the sensitivity and ability to perceive space and its variations are compromised and with them the motor coordination in the three planes of motions
The repetitive and competitive movements that occur in sport disciplines require a clear overview of the context in which one acts and the relationship between the various segments of the body.
Rolfing aims at the proprioceptive re-education of the athlete in order to coordinate attention, intention, movement, breath, instinct, nervous system, emotionality, pleasure to be.......living.
