Rolfing® Structural Integration is a manual, whole body therapy invented by Dr. Ida P. Rolf that focuses on the body’s structure in its relationship to the field of gravity. It is not designed to treat specific symptoms; however, once the body is integrated- has more balance, freedom and better relationship between its segments, painful symptoms often resolve. Many common complaints bring people to seek Structural Integration.
Dr. Rolf saw body ‘structure’ as the relationships between our various segments—ankles, knees, hips, ribcage, shoulders, neck, head. She understood ‘integration’ in terms of how these segments line up and function within the field of gravity. Hence: Structural Integration.
