CE Class Review: Guided Movement Techniques with Steven Radiloff

In December 2017, Steven Radiloff, a Certified Advanced Rolfer™ of 40 years, offered a CE for 2 manual (intermediate) credits on incorporating guided client movement in conjunction with hands-on work during sessions, as well as how to better see, evaluate and strategize patterns in a 360˚ view.
Some of the benefits of incorporating guided client movement in sessions are:



– Direct client involvement in the session creating a more conducive and inclusive participation in their own process and consciousness

– Rolfer™ and client become more of a unified team

– Enhancing the evolution and education of the client in their specific needs and goals

– Reducing the “pain” factor of a passive client during the more challenging moments of change


The course was interesting, practical, and very useful. Incorporating the guided movement into my sessions was intuitive and easy to do. This course helped me to better “see” patterns in clients during body-readings, and to strategize what should be focused on during the session. I find that incorporating movement helps me to better see and feel what is happening in the client’s body (so I can feel if the knee wants to pull in or out with knee bends, can draw the client’s awareness to this, and can then help to correct this with manual manipulation). I can also use the movement to help ensure that joints are functioning in the proper planes of motion. “Put it where it belongs and ask for movement.” IPR


Should Steven offer this course again, I would recommend taking it.

New Name!

We are no longer the CRA! On September 17th, 2017 at the SGM the membership voted to change the name from the Canadian Rolfing® Association to the Rolfing® Association of Canada. The french name: Association canadienne de Rolfing® remains the same. The rationale for the name change was to avoid being confused the with Canadian Revenue Agency, as we shared the same acronym: CRA. By changing the name to the Rolfing® Association of Canada, we can use the acronym, RAC, thus avoiding any confusion. The name change has now been made official, so fellow Rolfers™, if you mention the association on your websites, please make sure you update your website with the new name!

“We are not truly upright, we are only on our way to being upright. One of the jobs of a Rolfer™ is to speed that process along. Where gravity reinforces and is a friend, a nourishing force.”
