The Classic Dr. Ida Rolf Method of Structural Integration originated and developed by Dr. Ida P Rolf May 19, 1896 – March 19, 1979 ( left)
It has its roots in Osteopathy, Eastern Yoga and the Human Potential Movement. Today, practitioners of this science and art utilize her 10 session “Recipe” as their guiding light; Achieving the ultimate goal of balanced function and order of the human body in relationship to the gravity field. It is a biological system of creating improved order of basic anatomical functions through movement and safe touch. It is to be accomplished in 10 consecutive sessions. We systematically build upon each previous session to assist the restoration of the person. We center the body around what we refer to as the transcendental center line or the force of gravity on the body. Not all methods of Structural Integration, myofascial release, or somatic types of body work use Dr. Rolf’s strategy of the classic recipe or the line any longer, This time tested process is well known to have predictable, life changing results. Together, we work to guide the fascia, bones, and nerves of your body to a higher degree of functional alignment. This work takes commitment of 10 sessions and post integration time, some people enjoy follow up sessions of single or series work. You will gain understanding, better embodiment and new awareness of your own body through the process, Structural Integration is appropriate for all stages of life from babies to senior citizens and most conditions.
