In the Advanced Rolfing Fort Worth fifth-hour session it is going to be more obvious where the girdles are inhibited. The sleeve is more at ease and the deeper structures can be addressed. The way that the two girdles communicate through the core is going to be examined so that fluid contra lateral movement can emerge. Session five: Support/lPalintonicity (5-6-7) Upper pole of Axial complex. "Congruence between segments precedes higher order. When the lines of transmission are eased, they give way to palintinos."

The main goals are to create more space in the core, enable more lumbar freedom in flexion and extension, and initiate a visceral release. Attention to working with the drifts in the tissue of the anterior torso will help to resolve asymmetry in the tissue of the thorax. To create more space in the core assess x,y,z restrictions on the core by working with the primary contributors of tilt and shift in both girdles.

The shoulder girdle may need to be more differentiated to further normalize breathing, the psoas may need to be lengthened and or quadriceps released at attachment to ease lumbars. Assess if LDH is short in back and address psoas and quadratus lumboram to de-rotate tissue and create space. If torso is short in front, release forces in the rectus abdominus that impinge on core space and function. A short rectus attachment in front can pull ribs to narrow or wide so assess if ribcage is more inspiration or expiration fixed and work with the drifts in the direction of correction to further decompress the ribs. The back work should continue to consider side bends from anterior aspect and breathing from a posterior one.

The indirect diaphram release can be completed in this session with the relationship to the core. The client on their side gives the hands of the practitioner access to thoracic inlet and cerebral crus and falx diaphragm's. Neck work will also be in anterior compartment with emphasis on congruence of movement and relationship to the core. Pelvic lift or pull will finish Advanced Rolfing Fort Worth firth-hour.
