Rolfers do manual work on and in the nose in the Seventh Hour of the Ten Series. This article reflects on those protocols as well as the implications of COVID-19 precautions. The author explores the idea of nasal intelligence and the role smell has with body awareness, intuition, and orientation. The nose and breathing are coupled, which is touched on as having complexity that is anatomic and social.
