The intention of this session is to lenghthen the back side line and to restore movement to the sacrum. I had to get reaquainted with my body a little bit more after session six. It didn't take long though. Afterwards, I felt like a well oiled machine! I now realize how sessions 4,5,and 6 should be done soon after each other.
Apparently session six, for most, is more relaxing. Hardly any movement is called for and you are laying on your stomach the whole time. For me...this was the most intense so far. I've heard people talk about "pain" while undergoing "rolfing" or Structural Integration (SI). It's not about the pain. It's about being and feeling like a new, well balanced body, free from pain. The amount of intensity I have felt during my sessions so far does not amount to how I'm feeling now...free! I'm experiencing ease of movement and better posture, especially with the sitting and standing movement exercises I try to remember on a daily basis. By the way, I'm getting a seat wedge for driving. I want to maintain comfort in my newly aligned structure ;) It keeps your body upright while driving. It's good for any and every seat...but I'm not going to be that anal and take it everywhere.
Today, about a week after session 6, I had a pretty good work out. Way more than I've had in months...and it felt wonderful. I did my work out with such ease. I was extremely impressed. I thought for sure I'd be out of breath and have some tightening somewhere in my body. But no! The rotation in all my joints were smooth. Especially in my hips, back, and shoulders.
