Presented by Sharon Wheeler
The groundbreaking information presented in this workshop is the result of Sharon’s inquiry into the fascial plasticity of bone. There are two major areas of study in this workshop: Bone Change and Bone Rolling.
Since the initial spontaneous discovery in 1973 Sharon has been exploring the curious phenomenon of Bone Change. These techniques are designed to address shape and contour. Bone Change employs precisely placed manual pressure into the fascial elements of the bone. The chronic distortions left over from badly healed breaks in the bone, or scars in the bone, transform towards normal in moments. Results appear to be permanent.
Accidents and injuries can disorganize the functional relationships between bones. Bones can get stuck together out of place causing chronic dysfunction. These bone- to-bone adhesions are at the level of the fascia of the periosteum. In Bone Rolling, deep manual pressure is precisely directed through the periosteal adhesion to release the stuck bones. The bones are now free to move, or “roll” into a better relationship within structure of the fascial web. There are Bone Rolling techniques for most of the bone-to-bone relationships of the body. The techniques are primarily for the appendicular skeleton, and some for the axial skeleton. Bone Rolling results in profound, lasting structural shifts.
Sharon will also demonstrate “Two-Handed Torque” for the cranium. This fascinating and unique approach smoothes out irregularities in the cranium, nicely demonstrating the fascial plasticity of spongy bone.
Prior to becoming a Rolfer®, Sharon Wheeler was a part of the staff at Esalen institute in Big Sur, California, where she taught Esalen Massage for several years. When Dr. Ida Rolf brought Rolfing to Esalen, Sharon became one of her early students, working with her from 1970 to 1979. Sharon also served on the Board of Directors of the Rolf Institute for several years. Currently, she practices in Washington, near Seattle, and travels to teach specialty classes on Bones, Scar Tissue, Cranial Rolfing, Sacrum and Coccyx Work, the Art of Rolfing. www.wheelerfascialwork.com
