Structural integration, aka Rolfing®, or originally known as Structural Integration by its founder Ida P. Rolf, is a journey. A journey that is adored by many. One that requires courage, patience, time and an open heart.
What to expect:
Structural Integration is traditionally done as a ten- step series. This is a highly individualized formula that maximizes the body’s ability to integrate change toward structural integration. Each session builds on the results of the previous one, so results are cumulative. Further sessions (“tune-ups”) are often sought as the body may experience injury or stress. The work is somewhat similar to massage, in that it is done on a table or a bench using hands, fingers, forearms and elbows. Frequently, it will call for movement and/ or breath participation. This is a 50/50 relationship where we work together to get the best results. Sessions typically last 60-90 min and are spaced one to three weeks apart.
