Whether it is to understand the nature of a physical discomfort – for example, a limitation of movement, tension or chronic pain – or simply to deepen the awareness of one’s own body, individual sessions of Body-Mind Centering and Rolfing allow to involve oneself in a process of observation, exploration and formation of more effective postural attitudes, and to enrich and refine the perception of oneself and of the relational environment.
Learning to listen to oneself, drawing on one’s own sensory resources and activating the ability to self-regulate and elaborate bodily experiences, is part of a self-educational path towards well-being and self-care.

Body-Mind Centering®

An individual BMC session is built around the needs and interests expressed by the person, identifying the theme that will be the common thread of the meeting, whether structural or functional in nature.
The practitioner intervenes with an educational touch to release movement restrictions and bring more fluidity to certain areas of the body, evoking the specific qualities and breathing rhythms of the tissues stressed. His tactile and verbal cues guide the process of sensorimotor integration and support movement awareness with respect to fundamental physical supports – sense of weight, spatial orientation, relationship to the ground -, and the imagery that contributes to it.
Small exercises can be suggested at the end of the session to recall and consolidate the experience and prolong the practice in autonomy.

The sessions have a variable duration of 1h/1h15. A minimum cycle of three meetings is recommended to experience the effects of the work, and understand if it is in accord with your needs.

Rolfing/Structural Integration®

A preliminary orientation interview allows to define the path in accordance with the needs and objectives expressed by the person, and is refined through the reading of his postural organization and fundamental dynamic coordination in walking and breathing.
Observation of the postural attitude plays a central role in the practice of Rolfing, insofar as it reflects the relationship to the substrate of support and the space of action. The session continues in a lying position, and therefore “neutral” with respect to the usual distribution of weight through the body structures, to allow the progressive mobilization of fascial tissue. This particular “organ of form” (as defined by Ida P. Rolf), an object of growing interest in the scientific research community, is finely innervated and responds to the precise and sensitive stimuli of the operator’s touch. The objective is to restore, where necessary, correct joint relationships so that the transmission of movement occurs in the most effective way and harmoniously involves all body territories. In constant dialogue with the person, the practitioner guides the path of progressive exploration of movement by focusing on specific topics: the construction of ground support, breathing capacity, the space of visceral volumes, the dynamics of spinal rotation, the balance of the upper limbs, the orientation of the senses of the head …
The session continues in a seated and upright position to evaluate the integration and effects of guided practices together.

The basic cycle includes ten thematic sessions spread over several months, at the rate of two monthly meetings depending on individual needs.
Each session has a variable duration of 1h/1h30.
