Lloyd Tower is a Registered Massage Therapist, Certified Rolfer, and Rolf Movement Practitioner working in Sherwood Park, Alberta. Lloyds’ expertise allows him to see how the effects of gravity create strain on body posture and movement. He then assesses and treats these body alignment issues through Rolfing.
Rolfing is a form of therapy that works deeply on connective tissues known as fascia. Fascia is the fabric that holds the body together. It is connected to your tendons, muscles, bones and ligaments. With refined techniques and focused pressure Lloyd softens and lengthens fascia, which allows the body to “right” itself with gravity.
As gravity weighs on us throughout our lives it creates unbalance. Our bodies suffer from shortened fascia, which creates tight and thick patterns of strain. Rolfing realigns the body, eliminating life-long strain from tension and bracing.
Rolfing clients enjoy many benefits:
- Relief from chronic pain,
- Reduced muscle tension,
- Repairing of scar tissue,
- Improved postural alignment,
- Greater body awareness,
- Enhanced mind/body connection,
- Increased flexibility and coordination,
- Improved energy and stamina,
- Enhanced athletic performance,
- Renewed vitality, and
- Quicker injury recovery.
Rolfing can be especially helpful for enhancing sports performance, avoiding repetitive stress injuries and improving the body’s efficiency during tasks. Take the steps today to improve your life with this effective therapy.
“Rolfers make a life study of relating bodies and their fields to the earth and its gravity field, and we so organize the body that the gravity field can reinforce the body’s energy field. This is our primary concept.” –Ida Rolf
