Structural & Movement Integration
Rolfing® Structural and Movement Integration is a system of manipulation and movement education that releases chronic strain in the body by reorganizing the human structure.
Rather than being a collection of separate parts, our bodies are a seamless network of tissues. These connective tissues – the fascia - surround, support and penetrate all the muscles, bones, nerves, and organs.
Rolfing works on this web-like complex of connective tissues to release, realign, and balance the whole body in the field of gravity. It facilitates the discovery of new options in terms of posture, movement and breath, enhancing our potential for balance, coordination, flexibility and strength.
“Rolfing® does not “cure” symptoms. The goal of Rolfing is a more resilient, higher-energy system ...the greater energy does its own beneficial work in healing and relaxing. Rolfing does not achieve perfection: it begins a process.”
Dr.Ida P. Rolf, founder of Rolfing®
