Rolfing® Structural Integration is a sophisticated form of bodywork that was created by biochemist Dr. Ida P. Rolf. This manual therapy is designed to soften and hydrate the fascia, or connective tissue to encourage the bones to return to a more optimal relationship with gravity. When we are in alignment with ourselves, we can thrive.
Chronic tension creates a thickening of fascia. When that thickness melts, the relationships of many segments begins to change. This rippling effect of release and reorganization within the gravitational field is a process in which the whole body, and person can change.
The physical sensations of an increased sense of support or more lift and ease in standing are also experienced psychologically (i.e. "I feel confident and intentional in my interactions with the world). When there is less struggle due to restrictions, there is more potential for the true spirit to come through.
