Rolfing Structural Integration $135
Structural Integration is a unique and highly effective system of physical manipulation and movement education. It is the product of over 50 years of study by Dr. Ida Rolf (1896-1979). Dr. Ida Rolf discovered that we function better when aligned with gravity and that our bodies can be brought into harmony with gravity at any age. Structural Integration is traditionally applied in a series of ten session. Each session is both a continuation of the previous and an introduction to the next. Through a combination of applied pressure and gentle movements, Structural Integration frees and repositions the layers of connective tissue. As a result, tension and habitual holding patterns are released. Benefits include improved posture, alignment and body awareness. It reduces chronic pain, increases efficiency and grace of movement and enhances athletic and yoga performance.
Rolfing Structural Integration is a unique method of work that releases restrictions and tightness in the myofascial system. It is a wholistic process of work that deeply affects alignment and function. As a result of being more in line with gravity, the body becomes more efficient leading to better posture and less pain.
