Phase I offers an integrated and innovative approach to learning about the human body and the essential skills and academic knowledge required to practice Rolfing Structural Integration. Designed for students with no formal training in massage or bodywork, or those with some base-level training, we emphasize individual learning by providing each student with support for his/her specific learning needs.
Taught through well-illustrated lectures, experiential exercises, and guided palpation, classes are designed to provide the optimal learning experience. Students study the foundation subjects as well as develop skills and knowledge in perceptual acuity, efficient body use, and quality of touch.
This Rolfing® Certification Program is accredited by The Commission on Massage Therapy Accreditation. In order to graduate from an accredited program, all three phases of the program must be attended at the Dr. Ida Rolf Institute in Boulder, CO. International, and regional school programs are not accredited by COMTA.
