Dr. Ida Rolf believed that there is a more natural alignment for each of us – an easier organization between self and gravity. That through external factors, over time, our natural alignment is lost, causing internal stresses that can result in both physical and emotional discomfort.
When we prevent or correct these imbalances we can reduce the compensations and stressors that cause discomfort in our bodies.
This concept is at the heart of Rolfing® Structural Integration.
"This is the gospel of Rolfing®:
When the body gets working appropriately, the force of gravity can flow through.
Then, spontaneously, the body heals itself." ~ Dr. Ida Rolf
