Structural Integration: invented by Ida rolf
Ida Rolf was a pioneer and revolutionary thinker. She did her graduate studies in fascia at Columbia University completing her PhD in 1920. Driven by personal and family ailments Ida Rolf began a journey that lead to her invention of Structural Integration. She deduced that fascia is what gives our bodies shape. This 10 sessions process is designed to bring the body into maximum alignment. This is truly the best form of bodywork I ever studied or received. I'm lucky to have studied with two teachers that were very close to Ida Rolf; Emmett Hutchins and Peter Melchoir. Ida Rolf was the founder of the Rolf Institute, she called her work Structural Integration, but others have chosen to refer it as Rolfing.
