What is the Rolf Method of Structural Integration?


Structural Integration is a specific soft tissue manipulation which uses slow, purposeful strokes to change and align the client's body (or structure), within gravity.

The manipulation makes very positive change by working with the client's myo-fascial body.  Myo means muscle and fasciae is the connective tissue present throughout the body which defines a person's shape or form. 

Much of chronic pain and dysfunction in human form can be attributed to the shortening and binding of the fascial body due to injury, repetitive stress and/or postural issues.

For over half a century Structural Integration practitioners have used the techniques created by Dr. Ida P. Rolf to affect permanent and powerful healing in people of all ages all around the world.

Roberto has combined his advanced knowledge of anatomy and the human structure in movement to apply the Rolf Method to his clients from 10 years of age to well over 90.  If you have questions about the work, how it feels or what it can do for you, please contact Roberto at 480-225-2313.
