Rolf Structural Integration
Rolf Method of Structural Integration is a scientifically validated system of body restructuring and movement education that releases your body from lifelong patterns of tension and bracing, permitting gravity to realign you. It has similar goals to chiropractic, but without adjusting the joints.
This type of bodywork, unlike other therapies or forms of care that focus on muscles or only on joints, focuses primarily on fascia and connective tissue which connect everything together.
Chronic Pain Relief
Increased Range of Motion
Enhanced Athletic Performance
Greater Lung Capacity
Three Kinds of Work
The Ten Series
The Ten Series will establish in you, the awareness of your “Vertical Line.” Awareness of your vertical line allows you to have an effortless, vertical postural alignment.
Great health benefits are expected, beyond just the posture balancing and overall loosening effects. Once your nervous system is re patterned and in the new habit of correct alignment after the Ten Series, higher lung capacity becomes possible. Better brain function, glandular system balance, and improved function of all major organs are a known and proven by product of having higher lung capacity.
According to Ida Rolf, “[Her Rolf Method Structural Integration technique] is permanent.” -- Ida P. Rolf
The posture change can last upwards of 10 years after your first initial 10 sessions! Occasionally 3 to 5 Tune up sessions are recommended to maintain proper alignment once every year or two.
The 10 series is a great long-term investment for the health and longevity of your body and something that everyone should experience for improved quality of life.
Post Ten Advanced Sessions
Post Ten Advanced Sessions are great to use when you begin to notice it being more challenging to effortlessly maintain alignment after your Ten Series. Over time the body needs to be rebalanced. These are great to keep the body open and in alignment over the long term.
Time between post 10 advanced series is a personal thing. Some get tune up work as little as once every year or 2 or as much as 2 to 4 times a year. It depends on what your goals are and what you put your body through, like people who play sports that are harder on the body can require more work.
Targeted Sessions are great for loosening and releasing targeted areas, pain management, or if you are one of those people who can’t “seem to get deep enough massages” or “the massages are not making your issue go away." This is another option. They are great for getting all the “kinks” worked out in a very different way than other therapies. Longer lasting stress relief and greater joint mobility is a by-product of this deeper form of bodywork.
Targeted sessions are great for athletic performance by enhancing recovery time and achieving more efficient muscles. These types of sessions are very useful before and after intense competitions.
