WHAT IS THE ROSSITER SYSTEM®
The Rossiter System is a series of powerful and effective techniques for addressing structural pain and restriction of movement at its source, the body’s fascia, ligaments, tendons, collagen, elastin – collectively called connective tissue. Tight connective tissue is the source of stress, immobility, and pain in the body. Lower back pain, hip pain, shoulder pain are all quick and easy targets to get rid of pain in those and many other areas. The body-wide “locking” technique and weight work together to loosen tight tissues with unprecedented speed, safety, and profound results.
The Rossiter System is a two-person pin-and stretch release technique that quickly restores connective tissue to its natural, healthy state. Strategic anchoring of tissue with the practitioner’s foot, while the client executes specific motions-simultaneously the entire body is in a “Locked” position, creating a tensile framework body wide-which delivers more extensive and longer lasting results. The client is fully in charge of the session, and results are generally instantaneous and profound. Pain relief, increased range of motion, improved circulation and nerve conduction are all end results of the Rossiter System workouts.
If this sounds complicated, it isn’t! Removing lower back pain, hip pain, in fact, all kinds of pain and is incredibly simple learn, and to do.
The Rossiter System is different because you stretch your own body from the inside out with a Rossiter practitioner’s assistance. Results are quick, profound and life-changing. You regain and increase range of motion. If you are ready to take care of your body in a whole new way, the Rossiter System’s breakthrough techniques are for you! This is a powerful new way to prevent and relieve pain, regain and increase range of motion, and enhance performance. There are no medications, no splints, no injections and no risky surgeries. Thousands of bodywork, fitness, and health professionals have been trained in this modality over the last 26 years. Hundreds of thousands of individuals have benefited from the results. You could be next!
These dynamic and cutting edge techniques work on the body as a whole system, while completely protecting the client and practitioner from any strain or injury. Rossiter System proprietary locking technique creates tension in your entire body as you do the directed stretching moves, giving you surprisingly effective and fast results. Whether you’ve been in pain for a day or most of your life, we can show you a new way to live without that pain. If you are open to our approach, we are ready to help you improve your quality of life.
Rossiter System’s first priority is safety for not only the client, but for the practitioner. Rossiter is designed to completely protect the practitioner from any strain or injury by utilizing body mechanics throughout each session. Rossiter Practitioners are able to have full time practices without suffering common ailments that most bodyworkers eventually have.
Who We Are
The Rossiter System is dedicated to bringing this unique form of pain prevention and relief to everyone who can benefit. Individuals, bodyworkers, companies and their employees, health-care professionals, seniors, athletes, coaches, athletic trainers, municipalities, workers – anyone whose body hurts because of overuse, repetitive strain or injury.
At its core, The Rossiter System is a profoundly effective alternative to invasive procedures such as shots and surgery, without the dangers of pain medications. We invite you to explore its possibilities.
Rossiter stretches the body from the inside out – while other bodyworks work from the outside in. It’s a quick, effective and most importantly non-invasive way to get the results you want. The proprietary locking concept engages the other 90% of connective tissue that is not being focused on. This creates a tensile framework for the specific stretch to occur within. It makes the local work global and yields better results that last longer.
Developed through the concept of Rolfing – Rossiter utilizes weight (with the foot) for greater traction and active participation for maximum results.
What differentiates The Rossiter System from other modalities, however, is the speed with which results occur and the involvement of the client in the stretches. Unique to the Rossiter System are:
- Active client participation and involvement. Based on the concept that two people working and moving together can increase the power, effectiveness, speed and amount of tissue that can be changed at any one time, The Rossiter System requires the client to move and stretch his/her own tissue with a Rossiter Coach’s help and guidance.
- A system wide approach to pain relief and well-being. The Rossiter System encompasses a series of predictable, well-defined two-person techniques that are easy to teach and easy to learn. The Rossiter System loosens and lengthens the entire system of tissue that feeds into the pain, no matter where it arises or presents.
- A focus on the cause of pain, not the symptoms of pain. Like many other complementary/alternative modalities – and unlike traditional medicine – The Rossiter System zeroes in on the causes of pain, stress, tightness and related symptoms that arise when connective tissue becomes short, tight, traumatized or constricted inside the body.
Fascia is flexible yet tensile – think plastic grocery bag. Without fascia we would be a pile of anatomical structures. Hydration is important as fascia is covered in water droplets. As it dries it loses the ability to slide between layers of tissue and we lose the ability to move smoothly.
Changes can be drastic although happen very slowly with fascia – other techniques will push the tissue to move at a pace that’s too quick and the tissue with recoil and fight back. Rossiter movements are slow and deliberate to let the tissue change on its own to create spacial change that lasts.
You and your Coach will stretch away your pain – and generally, the harder you work, the better you feel later! Your Coach pins the tissue where he aims to stretch, and then you lock and engage the rest of the body, move in deliberate ways and let the fascia stretch itself, in its own time.
a restoration of space and mobility while effectively removing pain.
Most clients feel immediate relief during their first workout itself. That said, the longer a pain has been present in the body, the longer it can take to get rid of as the body can only adjust to so much change at one time.
Rossiter can also be used as a maintenance or spot treatment technique for those who find themselves in a consistent state of tension.
