What is Structural Integration?

Structural integration is a powerful, effective and corrective method for creating change in a person's body.  Structural Integration and Rolfing are synonymous methods of manual therapy that were introduced by Ida P. Rolf over 60 years ago. 

By structure, Dr. Rolf meant bones.  At birth, every bone in our human frame was given a home, our natural alignment.  As we age and experience our  life's  impacts and injuries, our myofascial tissue (muscles and fascia) form  lines of tension which tugs on the bones. In time, unbalanced tension in the myofascial tissue shifts and rotates bones away from home and causes pain and decreases range of motion. Our job is to help your bones find their way back home and line you up.
