Structural Integration

Structural Integration , Rolfing, follows the theory and methods of Ida Rolf who believed if you could return the body to perfect gravitational balance,  perfect health would return as well.  Usually this work involves deep tissue manipulation.  Noticing muscles that do not pull the bones in the directions taught  in anatomy books, realizing that agonist and antagonist groups must lengthen and shorten in concert, discovering deep connective tissues may be moldable, recognizing both Wolff’s Law and Davis’ Law hold keys to understanding why posture falls off center as well as how to restore neutrality led her to develop techniques and theory that are being expanded on almost a hundred years later.
