The Rolf Method of Structural Integration

Structural Integration practitioners

At the beginning of the first session the client spends some time speaking with their practitioner about their goals and intentions as applied to their unique situation and structure. Sessions are done in underwear or a bathing suit. The practitioner will observe you as you stand and move, in order to assess levels of balance, alignment and movement patterns. In some cases, if appropriate, photographs may be taken for the benefit of you and your practitioner. The client will lie on a massage table so the practitioner can work with their body. The client will participate in each session, often being asked to breathe into the area being worked on or to make small, specific movements.

During the session the client may experience a warm stretching sensation from the area that the practitioner is working with. Some individuals do not experience any sensation and others may experience momentary discomfort. The practitioner will apply the appropriate pressure, based on the clients needs and feedback.

After the basic ten series is complete a client usually allows a period of time for the body to adapt and fully integrate before scheduling additional work. The waiting period can be anywhere from one month to one year based on the client's unique experience. After the waiting period the client can return for tune-up sessions or advanced sessions to further the process of integration or to achieve specific goals.

Beyond the ten series

When you feel that many of the changes brought on by the Ten Series have been integrated into your body, you can consider going further with either Post-Ten work or even the Advanced Structural Integration Series.

Avant et après les 10 séances

You cannot get aligned by thinking about it.
Structural Integration shows you how to get there.
It is a preparation for the use of gravity.
