As Albert Einstein demonstrated to the world, space and time are intimately bound. However, it doesn’t take a genius to experience it.
As we mature and lose the sense of physical spaciousness that is our birthright — a phenomenon I spoke about in my last post — we also may feel as if we are running out of time, as if the minutes are ticking by faster, or grains of sand are quickly piling up in an hourglass.
At the risk of sounding heretical, I’ll ask you to consider the idea that as we age we are not automatically fated to feel like prisoners waiting to die! To support my contention let me again point out that Einstein also said time itself is an illusion, perhaps the greatest one.
When as a Certified Advanced Rolfer I work on a client, they, as well as I, often feel as though I am pushing back time.
From where I stand, I am simply opening up space in the body’s fascia, taking pressure off nerves, and ultimately allowing the body’s natural healing to occur. This is tantamount to reversing years of “wear and tear.” As a result, after just one hour, my clients often leave my table feeling younger and lighter. Why? Because a new sense of spaciousness has engendered a new and vibrant sense of time.
Just as pain and discomfort are usurpers of space, they are enemies of time. When you reclaim the former, you regain the latter.
Sound too good to be true? I am sure that it does. But let me be frank, Rolfing is not a get-rich-quick scheme. It is a highly specialized and disciplined technique with proven and long-lasting results. The only way to know is to experience the benefits for yourself.
