Rolfing Structural Integration: What Is It?
Rolfing Structural Integration® (commonly known as “Rolfing”) is a form of bodywork developed by Ida P. Rolf, Ph.D., that helps to optimize postural alignment and resolve longstanding posture-related pain. It is traditionally done in a series of ten sessions, each of which builds on the previous, to establish a more adaptable and resilient structure. In this course, we cover the evolution of Rolfing, what each of the ten sessions involves, the most recent science on ‘Fascia’ (the connective tissue that Rolfing most directly affects) and myths and facts around Rolfing.
