As in all matter organized into biological units, there is a pattern, an order in human bodies. Rolfers make a life study of relating bodies and their fields to the earth and its gravity field. We so organize the body that the gravity field can reinforce the body’s energy field.

Creator of Structural Integration or "Rolfing"

The Rolfing® Ten Series

The hallmark of Rolfing Structural Integration is a standardized "recipe" known as the Ten Series, the goal of which is to systematically balance and optimize both the structure (shape) and function (movement) of the entire body over the course of ten Rolfing sessions.

Each session focuses on freeing restrictions or holdings trapped in a particular region of the body. A practitioner also maintains a holistic view of the client's entire system during each session, thus ensuring the transformational process evolves in a comfortable and harmonious way.

What are the benefits

  • Rolfing Structural Integration has the ability to dramatically alter a person's posture and structure.
  • Rolfing can potentially resolve discomfort, release tension and alleviate pain.
  • Rolfing aims to restore flexibility, revitalize your energy and leave you feeling more comfortable in your body.
