What is Rolfing?
The Rolf Method of Structural Integration is a ten-session series of connective tissue mobilization, myofascial release, movement and postural re-education.
The goal of Structural Integration is to restore soft tissue balance and relieve chronic structural stress. Each session builds upon the last one to prepare the body for the next — the week between each treatment allows the body to integrate the new changes that were experienced.
Who is a candidate for the Rolf Method of Structural Integration?
- Patients with orthopedic and neurologic problems, chronic pain, myofascial syndromes and a host of more specific problems usually benefit from the ten-session series.
- The approach is particularly beneficial for those patients whose heightened sensitivity and pain preclude direct manipulation.
