Get Well: Structural Integration

OCP0207321What is it?

Also known as the Rolf method, or Rolfing®, it’s a process to re-educate the body through hands-on manipulation and movement. Structural Integration focuses on the connective tissue of the body (called fascia) and releases patterns of tendency, creating greater freedom and comfort within the body. Originally developed by Ida Rolf over 80 years ago, the Structural Integration method yields amazing therapeutic benefits.

Is Structural Integration for you? If you have:

  • Chronic pain
  • A strain or discomfort in a specific area such as the head, neck, shoulders, or  knees
  • Feet problems or concerns
  • Headaches
  • Low back pain
  • Scoliosis
  • Sciatic pain
  • Carpal tunnel
  • General posture concerns

Or are you:

  • An athlete ranging from a weekend warrior to a professional?
  • In a job that requires repetitive motion or movement such as a musician, actor or photographer?

Then, yes, Structural Integration is for you.

What you can expect:
Most of my clients report increased mobility and less pain in three sessions (or less). After completing 10 sessions, my clients report the ability to do many of the things they couldn’t do before Structural Integration. Each session has an individual goal. And following sessions continue to build upon the previous one with cumulative results. My clients report such things as improved posture, greater fluidity of movement and agility, and less pain. Beyond physical improvements, my clients cite additional benefits such as greater confidence, enhanced emotional well-being and increased spiritual awareness.
