Rolfing & Pregnancy


Whether you are pregnant or post-labor, Rolfing is a distinct type of hands-on bodywork that works with the connective tissue and nervous system. Sessions leave you feeling more deeply aware of your body, more integrated as a whole, and with greater ease of movement.

Common problems for women going through pregnancy:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Emotional overwhelm
  • Swelling of lower legs and feet

Rolfing sessions can help you feel more empowered and comfortable while your body is going through these changes. Also, one you’re full term, a pre-birth session to prepare the pelvis and lower body for labor is supportive and nourishing.

Common problems for women post-birth:

  • The body can feel weak or disjointed
  • Areas can feel out of awareness or confused
  • Neck, arm, and shoulder pain from holding the new baby
  • Emotional overwhelm

Rolfing sessions can help you feel re-integrated. If choosing to breastfeed, Rolfing can help you adapt to that new body position.
