Structural Integration and the art of Rolfing

 Ida Rolf was originally a biochemist, and during 40 years of research she discovered that the bodies internal network of connective tissue (what we call fascia) actively adapts to patterns of use and misuse. She discovered that the steady application of moderate manual pressure (myofascial manipulation or Rolfing as it is now called) could cause dense layers of tissue to melt, transform and stretch. Systematically applied pressure created flexibility, released people from old, rigid postures and improved their body’s segmental alignment with gravity.
