The Rolf Institute® of Structural Integration
Since its inception in 1971, The Rolf Institute of Structural Integration has been dedicated to bringing Rolfing Structural Integration to the world. The headquarters in Boulder, Colorado, and international offices in Europe, Brazil, Canada and Japan, are the only schools that certify Rolfers™ and Rolf Movement® Practitioners.
Supported by an esteemed international faculty, The Rolf Institute also offers Continuing Education for Rolfers and other bodywork professionals, and underwrites and promotes research and public information.
Rolfing® Structural Integration & Rolf Movement® Integration
Rolfing Structural Integration is a form of hands-on manipulation and movement education developed by Dr. Ida P. Rolf over 50 years ago. It works on the web-like network of connective tissues, called fascia, to release, realign and balance the whole body, potentially resolving discomfort, reducing compensations and alleviating pain. Rolfing SI aims to restore flexibility, revitalize your energy and leave you feeling more comfortable in your body.
Rolfing Structural Integration may enhance your posture and freedom of movement. It is not necessarily painful, and may bring dramatic results, including:
|• Injury recovery, including repetitive motion||• Stress relief|
|• Pain reduction, including back pain||• Increased flexibility|
|• Headache relief||• Better balance and ease|
