Rolfing and Structural Bodywork:
Structural Integration’s main intent is to create balance at all levels of the physical body.
Multiple techniques can supplement this process. However, Structural Integration (SI) also known as Rolfing® is the core model I use. SI involves hands on manipulation of the fascial network of connective tissue. Unlike massage, the process is analytical and involves simple posture assessments and movement tests that guide the practitioner’s plan prior to each session. Each session often builds on the last. A competent practitioner has this in mind at all times. SI work manifests new movement possibilities for the client.
Although different schools now teach SI work, Ida Rolf is the creator of Structural Integration and began the Rolf Institute to pass on her teachings. Refer to the Institute’s website for detailed information:
