Rolfing® Structural Integration (SI) is a unique system of manual therapy and sensorimotor education that enables the body to regain the natural integrity of its form, thus enhancing postural efficiency, freedom of movement, balance, and support.
Rolfing® Structural Integration works on the fascia, a seamless, web-like network that penetrates all of the muscles, bones, nerves and organs, to release, realign and balance the whole body. This can potentially resolve discomfort, reduce compensations, and alleviate pain.
Usually done in a series of 10-12 sessions, each session has its own goal and builds on the previous session. In each session, a history will be taken, your structure will be evaluated for any postural asymmetry and range of motion limitation. Following each session, reassessment of your structure will be made and notes taken for the following session. Each session will progress the overall structural integration and re-educate movement patterns.
