Does Rolfing Reduce Stress & Anxiety? 


Stress within a body can make a person feel like they are all tied up in knots. Rolfing can help untie those knots by slowly unwinding each end and working deeply to the center. It helps ease the weight of the world off of your shoulders by creating a freer support structure to carry your body's weight. In the Journal of Clinical Psychology, 1979*, a psychologist and a kinesiologist from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) studied the effects of:

​" ...the intervention technique of Structural Integration on state-trait anxiety. Matched pairs of [subjects] were assigned randomly to either the experimental (received Rolfing) or control group (N = 48). State anxiety questionnaires were administered before Rolfing and then again in 5 weeks after Rolfing."

Results indicated that rolfing caused a decrease in state anxiety when compared to the control group. Results were discussed in terms of the release of emotional tension stored up in the muscles due to Structural Integration.
