If you live in a body and use it, life will deliver a few dents and dings now and then. That’s why we’re here to help maintain your body with Rolfing ® structural integration. Your body is a complex system adapted to Earth’s downward pull. But when muscles, bones, and ligaments are displaced by injury or stress, gravity is your worst enemy. Pain, fatigue, and even mood disorders can result.
With Rolfing® structural integration, your body is ready for all the challenges of life. And gravity is your best friend.
Life in Relationship to a Large Planet
“Aging is nothing but a symptom of your losing fight with gravity.” Dr. Ida P. Rolf
Look at the history of your body and its current condition. What’s the best shape you were ever in? Is it true that you can’t get better than that because you are older? Have the slings and arrows of the outrageous fortune left your body feeling like an old dartboard? What are you putting up with or ignoring? What would make you happy with your body? Are you hiding it under a layer of fat and telling yourself that if you just lose weight you’ll have the same body that you had last time you were thin?
Having a body that can run or dance or work and play hard (or whatever you ask of it), is something most people want. In the aging process, gravity is compacting our structures and shortening our bodies. It doesn’t look or feel good when there’s no room for our bones and discs to peacefully exist in the soft connective tissue matrix of fascia and muscles. Having a body that is graceful, fluid and pain-free is the goal of Rolfing® structural integration.
