How can we provide effective Rolfing for a resilient neck? Our necks can become inflexible and therefore vulnerable in many ways. One way that inflexibility creeps in is via postural pattern strain from doing the things that humans do: texting, working, driving. Another way is through injury: concussions, surgeries, and whiplash. Necks that are resilient have the capacity to better withstand injuries and to recover quickly from life's challenges. They are flexible, adaptable, and strong.

In this three-day workshop, we will explore neck work through the Ten Series themes. For example, functional bilateral support is a theme of Session 2, and front/back depth on the lateral line is a theme of Session 3.

  • How can we achieve session-ending integrative neck work that serves those themes?
  • How do we ensure our neck work serves the goals of the client within the session and the series?
  • Where are effective places to work that prepare the client for Session 7 from the beginning of the series?
We will spend two days deepening our understanding of neck work over the first six sessions (and how that translates to the entire Ten Series) through anatomy presentations, Ten Series review, and neck work exchanges. We will also look at the rib complex and how addressing rib dysfunctions can serve to increase range of motion and ease of motion in the neck and head. On the third day for our Session 7 refinement, we review work around the cranium, the face, and the intraoral and intranasal work.
