When she pioneered her work more than 50 years ago, Dr. Ida P. Rolf, Ph.D., first called her work Structural Integration. The genius of the work rests on Dr. Rolf’s insight that the body is more at ease and functions most effectively when its structure is balanced in gravity.
She observed that, over time, the field of gravity actually accentuates the body’s imbalances and diminishes its flexibility. Based on these core observations, she developed her groundbreaking methods of hands-on manipulation which later became known as Rolfing – to reduce gravity’s adverse effects on the body.
