You can’t get beyond the body unless you free the body itself. – Ida Rolf

Structural Integration integrates, aligns and balances the physical body within its gravitational field by releasing and reorganizing the fascia or connective tissue that surrounds the muscles. Dr. Ida Rolf discovered that the human body was organized in layers and that it responded the most positively by working the fascia layer by layer much like an onion.  The Ten series is a recipe but is unique to each individual’s needs. The first three sessions of The Ten Series are called “The Sleeve Sessions”, with focus on the superficial fascia. The middle sessions are called “The Core Sessions”, and touch on the deeper myofascial structures. The last three sessions, are “The Integration Sessions”, they create functional and structural adaptability.
