Benefits of Rolfing® Structural Integration Therapy
Rolfing Structural Integration therapy can dramatically alter a person's posture and structure.
Rolfing® Structural Integration therapy can potentially resolve discomfort, release tension, and alleviate pain. Rolfing® Structural Integration aims to restore flexibility, revitalize your energy, and leave you feeling more comfortable in your body. 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.
Athletes, dancers, children, business professionals, and people from all walks of life have benefited from Rolfing® Structural Integration therapy. People seek Structural Integration to ease pain and chronic stress and improve performance in their professional and daily activities. It's estimated that more than 1 million people have received Rolfing® Structural Integration therapy work.
Research has demonstrated that Rolfing® Structural Integration therapy creates a more efficient use of the muscles, allows the body to conserve energy, and creates more economical and refined patterns of movement. Research also shows that Rolfing® significantly reduces chronic stress and changes in the body structure. For example, a study showed that Rolfing® Structural Integration significantly reduced the spinal curvature of subjects with lordosis (sway back); it also showed that Rolfing® Structural Integration therapy enhances neurological functioning.
