Rolfing® (Structural Integration) in Ireland

What is Rolfing ?

Rolfing, also known as Structural Integration, is a physically applied practice usually in a series of ten sessions that attempts to maximise the well being of body and mind. The practice was pioneered by Dr Ida Rolf born in 1896 in New York.

Dr. Rolf believed that the cause of human discomfort, both physical and emotional could, be traced to our internal connective tissue and the relationship that it has with the earth's gravitational field.

When external factors cause this relationship to be lost this creates stress that can be the cause of real physical discomfort. Preventing or correcting such misalignments can eliminate or significantly relieve the pysical and emotional stress.

Linking all internal structures within the body is the fascial web. This connective tissue unites the structure of the inner form and divides its' individual functioning elements. Fascia is always changing and reacting in response to demands placed on our bodies.

In particular it reacts to physical damage by creating extra material to promote stability and support. However in some cases the body produces more than is necessary. Over time this can have negative consequences and actually inhibit mobility.

How Does Rolfing Work

The main aim of Rolfing is to improve health by bringing the various elements of the body, such as the pelvis, into correct alignment. Rolfers use their elbows, fingers, and knuckles to stretch and open fascia to correct the misalignment in the head, shoulders, abdomen, pelvis, and legs. This helps to open up breathing, aids digestion, balances the nervous system, and improves physical and emotional health.

What Happens During an Rolfing Session

Usually a course of treatment consists of one hour sessions once a week for ten weeks, Typically each weekly therapy session focuses on a particular area of the body.

Your Rolfer begins by examining your posture, and may take photographs so that you can see the before and after changes. You will sit or lie on a massage table or floor mat, and the practitioner will begin the Rolfing movements.

The practitioner will as you to breath in line with the manipulations. Rolfing may cause some discomfort when the pressure is applied.

This is known as a reaction pain that may be necessary when releasing tissue adhesions and correcting poor posture.
