Rolfing

Developed by Dr. Ida Rolf as a way to “restructure” the body, Rolfing/Structural Integration has wide-ranging therapeutic benefits. Following are the most frequently asked questions about this highly effective bodywork technique.
 

What Is Rolfing/Structural Integration?

Rolfing/Structural Integration is a proven method of bodywork that reorganizes the connective tissues, called fascia, throughout the body. Its effectiveness lies in Dr. Ida Rolf’s insight that the body functions most effectively when its supporting structure is balanced in gravity and is therefore most at ease.

More than fifty years ago, Dr. Rolf recognized the body to be a seamless system of tissue networks—and not a collection of separate parts, as had previously been believed. These connective tissues surround, support, and penetrate all of the body's muscles, bones, nerves, and organs.

Rolfing/Structural Integration concentrates on this web-like complex of connective tissues to release, realign and re-balance the entire body.

 

How Can Rolfing Structural Integration Help Me?

It is estimated that more than a million people, from all walks of life, have benefited from Rolfing Structural Integration. Athletes, dancers, and actors seek it out to help improve performance. It is beneficial for everyone, from children to stressed or desk-bound business professionals.

Rolfing/Structural Integration can dramatically alter posture and structure. It can ease pain and chronic stress, improve flexibility, revitalize energy, and improve performance in professional and daily activities by leaving you feeling more comfortable in your body.

 

Does Research Support Rolfing Structural Integration?

Yes. Research shows that Rolfing Structural Integration creates a more efficient use of the muscles, allows the body to conserve energy, and creates more economical and refined patterns of movement.

10-Series Rolfling

What are the Benefits of 10-Series?

Ida P. Rolf once said, and I'm paraphrasing,  that the 10-series is like one session in ten parts. The nervous system couldn't take it all at once! Each session has a focus. Each session building on the last and preparing the body for the next. The benefit is a complete restructuring, or reorganization, of the body. 

"This is the gospel of Structural Integration. When the body gets working appropriately, the force of gravity can flow through it. Then, spontaneously, the body heals itself." -Ida P. Rolf

Ultimately, you feel better balanced and aligned in gravity. The process of the 10-series involves you, thereby increasing your awareness of how you are in your body. It brings functional ease to your structure. With this ease can come increased energy.  

My clients that commit to the 10-series are committed to self-care and to feeling their best. They like the process of self-discovery and developing better self-awareness.
