CORE Fascial Release
What Is CORE Fascial Release
CORE is a type of body therapy for deep tissue release, based on the work of Ida P. Rolf, PhD and modified by Noah Karrasch, BS Ed. LMT and advanced certified Rolfer. The basic concept is that gravity and trauma have weighed us down and tightened us up. Experiencing CORE Bodywork will free holding patterns in the connective tissue network of the body. The result is freedom, ease and release of pain.
What It Does
It is the intention of CORE Bodywork to loosen the deepest lines of holding patterns in our body—physical, emotional, mental, chemical and energetic—releasing the trauma stuck and stored in our body's connective tissue network or fascia that travels through the entire body. As it moves through the body, fascia wraps muscles, muscle groups, organs and bones, connecting every body part to every other area of the body.
How It Helps
By applying subtle pressure to a held or stuck area, the CORE practitioner encourages the connective tissue to release and become more resilient — to flush out the trauma the body has stored. Clients feel a greater breath capacity, freer range of motion, reduction of pain and an increase of energy. Posture improves, restrictions are dissolved and the body is aligned with (instead of against) gravity. Clients feel better and often report they are able to handle new stressors and traumas better.
Is this painful?
Sometimes. Pain is resistance to change. Change isn't easy for any of us and letting go of old patterns can hurt. When we work as a team, however—client and practitioner—we will coax your body to release the old holding patterns in a gentle and non-threatening manner. You are in charge of your process, and the freedom you feel on the other side is remarkable. Try it!
How much does it cost?
RM300 per session. RM1350 for a package of 5 sessions. Sessions are usually spaced one or two weeks apart. If there are special circumstances this time frame may be lengthened or decreased.
How many sessions?
Noah has developed the CORE series of at least five sessions which accomplishes many of the goals of the Ida Rolf ten series.
Does it last?
Yes! Clients often retain such positive body awareness that changes are visible for years after a basic series. However, since life is stressful, more work is usually indicated. The reasons to return for added work are a new trauma or emergency, maintenance to hold onto the new freedom, or a deeper line of work to be addressed.
