Structural Integration - aka 'Rolfing'
Creating structural realignment and integration through the release of connective tissue - "fascial layering"
Structural Integration (aka 'Rolfing') is a holistic and scientifically proven technique that is based on deep tissue manipulation and movement education.
Become a highly skilled and effective bodyworker. Join our courses and learn about functional anatomy, bodywork fundamentals and fascial bodywork.
A 10 session blueprint for realigning the entire body, releasing restrictions in the fascial layering, reducing chronic pain, increasing flexibility and balance.

Body Diagnosticts & Fascial Bodywork - Session 1 of the Rolf 10-Series
This is a 3-day introduction to the principles of Structural Integration (aka 'Rolfing'), and the 1st session of the Rolf 10-Series. Focus is first placed on developing your skills in observation and analysis of alignment in body's at rest and in movement. We then work with fascial (specialized connective tissue) release techniques and sensitivity to fascial layering. This will culminate with the application of these skills to deliver the 1st session of the Rolf 10-Series. (This course is the pre-requisite for 'Structural Integration 10-Series'.)
This is a 5-week intensive introducing Ida Rolf's 10-Series of Structural Integration. This will include theoretical and practical exploration of the principles underlying Structural Integration, building an understanding session goals and sequencing, and becoming more proficient in the fascial-release techniques fundamental to restoring alignment. The pre-requisite to this course is 'Structural Integration - Session 1 ('Rolfing').

Another way to look at injuries to the adductor is that these are directly, physically linked to the hamstring, and likely have significant connective tissue connectivity. Investigation and repair for full recovery may require addressing both muscle groups. 'Incomplete' recovery suggests that fascial adhesions remain in either group or, more likely, across both groups.
Aggravated tension and related complications involving the neck and shoulders is frequently raised as a primary concern by people from as diverse backgrounds as office workers to athletes and across geographies as far reaching as the Americas and Southeast Asia. The concern is real and growing, and there are simple solutions available.
A deep asana practice invites compression / decompression of almost all soft tissue, as well as the collapse / expansion of most positive space inside the body. Hence, the 'wringing of the washcloth' analogy and the understanding that this dynamic process is a principle driver of detoxification.
