What is Rolfing® Structural Integration?
It is a form of bodywork that reorganizes the connective tissue, called fascia, that permeates the enitre body. It is named after it's founder Dr. Ida P. Rolf. More than 50 years ago, Dr. Rolf recognized that the body is inherrently a systmem of seamless networks of tissue instead of a collection of seperate parts. These connective tissues surround, support and penetrate all of the muscles, bones, nerves, and organs. Rolfing® Structural Integration works on this web-like complex of connective tissues to release, realign and balance the whole body, thus potentially resolving discomfort, reducing compensations and alleviating pain. Rolfing SI aims to restore flexibility, revitalize your energy and leave you feeling more comfortable in your body.
Essentially, the Rolfing process enables the body to regain the natural integrity of its form, thus enhancing your body's efficiency and your freedom of movement.
What are the Benefits?
Rolfing Structural Integration has the ability to dramatically alter a person's posture and structure. Rolfing SI can potentially resolve discomfort, release tension and alleviate pain. The genius of the work rests on Dr. Rolf's insight that the body is more at ease and functions most effectively when its structure is balance in gravity
Athletes, dancers, business professionals, children, and people from all walks of life have benefited from Rolfing SI. People seek Rolfing SI as a way to ease pain and chronic stress, and improve performance in their professional and daily activities. It's estimated that more than 1 million people have received Rolfing work.
