Advanced Structural Integration




Based on the Ida P. Rolf Method of Structural Integration also known as Rolfing.....


     Ida created a "Recipe" for her work based on a ten series format. Each session builds upon the next as freedom from tension, chronic pain and poor posture are relieved and the body becomes re-aligned from the feet up. The body learns to be supported by gravity rather than fighting it.

      Many people prefer to have a firmer touch when they receive massage or bodywork and Ida Rolf paved the way for techniques such as Deep tissue Massage, Heller Work and many more that work with the Fascia layer of the body.

Fascia is the connective tissue that surrounds our organs, bones and muscles. It provides the support that keeps everything working together like an orchestra - and when it is injured or bound, our movement is restricted. Structural Integration allows the body to learn how to work with gravity and to be supported by it rather than fighting it. In this process of "letting go of the old and allowing the new to be present" your body feels younger and becomes more resilient. Old movement patterns that keep us in restriction are repatterned and freedom and length result.
