FluidBody Rolfing®

What Do I Wear During a Rolfing Session?



Most clients receive work in their underwear.  Briefs are preferable to boxers for men; traditional panties and bra work well for women. If you're not comfortable with this stage of undress, other options are available.

A pair of loose-fitting, short, cotton gym shorts, or yoga-type stretchy shorts, are good options. We can work with a variety of clothing, just keep the following in mind: You must be comfortable.  Unlike massage, Rolfing requires you to get up from the table and walk around periodically. Clothing should not pinch or bind.

If you can lie on the table and pull one knee to your chest without resistance, you're in good shape.Clothing should allow us to view and work around your upper legs, mid-back, and neck. Leave the hip-hop shorts at home. Sports bras are difficult to navigate around the mid-back.

Avoid heavy lycra. Bicycle shorts, girdles, and other garments containing lycra are nearly impossible to work through.

It's also a good idea to bring some work-out clothes (shorts and a tee-shirt) if we want to incorporate stretches using yoga mats, balance balls, or other training equipment.
