Hellerwork in Arlington, Arizona
Hellerwork is a system that merges somatic education and structural bodywork, and is based on the inseparability of body, mind and spirit. Hellerwork combines deep tissue body work with movement education and dialogue in an effort to guide the client toward physical and emotional health. Hellerwork treatment typically includes a series of 11 sessions with a goal of increasing the awareness and understanding of one’s body through the reorganization of connective tissues and muscles. Movement education is incorporated to enhance fluidity and ease of motion.
The Hellerwork technique was developed by Joseph Heller, who studied for six years under Dr. Ida P. Rolf. Heller became a certified Rolfer in 1972 and soon afterward developed his own system of bodywork. Hellerwork as a technique was introduced in 1979 and is based largely on the principles of Rolfing.
