Physical pain is often the reason people seek out body work, and it can also be the catalyst that leads them to greater body awareness.
As we discuss with author and certified Rolfing expert Mary Bond, body awareness is useful in learning your limits and capacities. By slowing down and learning to be present in yourself through your body, you give yourself time for more feedback to take place.

It’s easy to constantly judge ourselves for what our bodies can’t do. But if we remained curious and interested, celebrating our movement capacity right now?
